At first, the hiring of new head coach Chris Klieman was met with yawns. Sure, Klieman was a winner of multiple national championships at the 1-AA level. But because it was at that lower-tier fans feared it would not carry over. Klieman’s Wildcats have won over the skeptics with impressive NCAA Football betting results. As a matter of fact, the new coach already has his signature win. K-State upended Oklahoma two weeks ago to stun the country. By contrast, Texas has fallen short of expectations. Bevo remains the spoiled rich kid that is too soft to succeed.
