Oklahoma State football notebook: Joe Bob Clements won't go overboard on Kansas State info

Joe Bob Clements certainly has useful insight on the way the K-State program operates, as well as a lot of its personnel. But he said he won't try to pummel his colleagues and players with too much info about his former team.

OSU ran plenty of its three-back “trey” formation Saturday against West Virginia.

But there was a bit of a new wrinkle, as fullbacks Kye Staley and Jeremy Seaton occasionally lined up together on either side of quarterback J.W. Walsh. Typically, the formation features one fullback and two running backs.

Seaton said the Cowboys hope to run more plays out of that look as Staley's health continues to improve after he was slowed in the early season by a foot injury.

“It's great, because I know Kye's gonna knock somebody down,” Seaton said. “Now I've just gotta follow his lead.”

The set sprung Seaton in the third quarter for his 30-yard touchdown catch, the second of his career. Seaton said that first score, which came in the Heart of Dallas Bowl last season, was such a blur that he can't even recall it today.

But he remembers Saturday's trip to the end zone.

“I turned back and I saw J.W. throw it to me,” Seaton said. “Whenever I turned my head, I didn't see if there was a safety to my right, so I was just hoping that I wasn't gonna get knocked out, honestly.

“Once I caught it and I got into the end zone and everything, I saw Kye running to me.”


Quarterback J.W. Walsh on not letting the emotions of a loss linger: “We can't let West Virginia beat us twice. We've got to move forward and only focus on Kansas State this week. We need to focus on beating them.”
