"Time will tell," he said. "We'll find out. At least he has the approach I think, and the demeanor that would say yes."

The Cats passing attack appears
adequate in the season opener against
Two weeks ago, in K-State's 40-20 victory over Louisiana- Lafayette, the Wildcats looked as if they had done away with the pass, throwing just 10 times and rushing for nearly 400 yards.
Meier, who has 326 yards and two touchdowns passing this season, said K-State's aerial attack will be needed sooner than later and there isn't a better time to showcase it than Saturday.
"It's a big stepping stone for this 2004 season," said Meier, who has completed 60 percent of his passes. "People are saying this is going to make or break the season, but I don't buy into that. It's our first conference game, and it's on the road. It's going to be a difficult place to play. It will tell a lot about the character and the toughness of this football team."
Senior tight end Brian Casey said K-State is expecting to

"They've got speed, just like everyone else does," Casey said. "They like to creep those safeties up, so we are going to be doing some stuff to keep them back a little and keep them from having nine guys in the box against the run."
