After losing Collin Klein, they need a quarterback. Looks like they're reaching out to Gunner Kiel, who recently just left Indi... I mean LSU, I mean Notre Dame after being there a little over a year.
From the article:
Some of the programs from the powerhouse conference that have already contacted him are Mississippi State and Ole Miss. According to the report, he also mentioned that Tennessee is an option this early in the process.
As for non-SEC schools, he has been contacted by Kansas State, and he considers Ball State, Northern Illinois and Miami (Ohio) as others that have peaked his interest.
Right now, Kiel is focusing mainly on the relationship he will have with the coaching staff, as he knows he will be forced to sit out the entire 2013 season due to NCAA rules.
"The biggest factor for me now going through it all again is having a great relationship with my position coach," said Kiel.
Schad reported that Kiel plans on making his decision toward the end of spring football, which means a big announcement could be made in a matter of weeks. A transfer isn't something that the former top recruit from the 2012 class wanted to happen, but he says he is only looking for the best opportunity to play the quarterback position in 2014.
Gunner Kiel is keeping his options open at this point. After giving Cincinnati a hard look over the weekend, Kiel told Joe Schad of ESPN that there are many other schools in the running, including some that play in the SEC...

Let's just hope he doesn't end up at KSU or I fear this terrible losing streak will continue.
If that kid has one working cell in his brain he will get to KSU as soon as possible and do everything Snyder says.
But does he have the chest to play at KSU?
Agreed. Would be a really smart move for him, and for K-State.
Anyone know how that JuCo qb they signed is doing? Waters I think his name is? Is he even on campus yet?
I know Gerry loves him. Here's a spring primer for K-State I just found on CBSSports. Story linked, but part about their QB situation pasted below.
"-- Kansas State needs to find a replacement for Heisman Trophy finalist Collin Klein.
It's never easy replacing a three-year starter at quarterback. When that player is responsible for 68.2 percent of the team's total offensive yards and 39 touchdowns from the previous year, it's fair to say there will be a significant void the following season.
The favorite to take the starting job entering the spring is Daniel Sams, who played briefly in 2012 when Klein went out with an undisclosed injury. As a redshirt freshman, Sams registered 235 rushing yards and three touchdowns but completed only six of eight passes for 55 yards last season.
However, there might be some legitimate competition in Manhattan this spring, as junior-college transfer Jake Waters will be participating in practice after enrolling in January. Waters comes in with experience and a quality pedigree on the junior-college level after he broke the NJCAA record for completion percentage in 2012, converting on 73.3 percent of his passes. He also added 3,501 passing yards and 39 touchdowns with only three interceptions. As Nash's teammate at Iowa Western, Waters led the program to a 12-0 record and its first national championship.
Because Waters will have his chance to earn first-team reps, he might very well be the starting quarterback for Kansas State next fall. Where Sams has question marks about his arm strength and accuracy, Waters is the opposite. Expect this competition to go well into the fall, as the usually reticent Snyder is sure to keep his roster decisions away from the public."
College football never ends, and during the next few weeks teams will be getting ready for the 2013 season in their spring practice sessions. Here's a look at the Kansas State Wildcats and what they'll be working on this spring.

The dude has no balls. I wouldn't worry about him.
Although the streak likely continues until Snyder retires/dies.

That kid that replaced Klein last year when he got hurt for half a game was blazing fast. I can only imagine how tough it'd be to stop a KSU offense with a 4.4 QB instead of the 4.7 Klein that was tough enough to stop. It's not possible for him to be a worse passer than Klein.
