Prince has decision to make on Norwood

Kansas State head coach Ron Prince on Monday said he would wait a day before he would issue an announcement regarding the availability of his leading pass catcher for Saturday's game against No. 8 Louisville. Junior tight end Rashaad Norwood was arrested early Sunday morning in a campus parking lot for obstruction of the legal process and disorderly conduct, two misdemeanors.

Oh, my goodness. You're talking about some hypotheticals there now. That's a long time ago and I don't think I would have been equipped at that time to even handle that question. It's a great opportunity for us if we take advantage of it. If we go out and fail to take advantage of it I don't think it's that good of an opportunity. If we go out and play well, which is our expectation, then we feel we have a really good chance to win. That's what we try to do each week and surmise what's the best way to do that and I think this is a significant team on the landscape of college football. I think it shows that with a tremendous commitment from administration and commitment on the part of coaching and every other way you can build a program. In the long term, I think we'll find out this coach is probably one of the best in the game.
