GLENDALE, AZ (AP) – Living in the moment served Kansas State well this season. The seventh-ranked Wildcats rose to No. 1 in the BCS standings, won the Big 12 title and reached the Fiesta Bowl.

But after finishing the season with a loss to No. 5 Oregon on Thursday night, Kansas State can finally turn its attention to the future.

That means life without quarterback Collin Klein, linebacker Arthur Brown and the rest of a senior class that helped to engineer another massive turnaround in Manhattan.

Coach Bill Snyder will have to fill plenty of holes on both sides of the ball, and the Wildcats will surely be picked to finish in the bottom half of the Big 12 next season. But then again, that’s where they were picked to finish this season.
