MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) It is inevitable in sports: Eventually, you will lose. That doesnt make Kansas States first loss any easier for Chris Klieman to stomach.
The Wildcats new coach had won 25 consecutive games stretching nearly than two years _ back to his days at North Dakota State _ before a 26-13 defeat at Oklahoma State last weekend. It came in his first Big 12 matchup and ended a perfect start to his career in the Flint Hills.
You take them harder. Ill be honest, said Klieman, whose team will try to rebound Saturday against unbeaten Baylor. At North Dakota State, every win felt like a relief, and thats terrible to say. It really is terrible to say that it was a relief because you were a target every week.
