Once bill snyder retires or has health issues and has to retire (which could come at any time)
The program goes back to being an average team in college football.

I like the cats but the more and more you watch snyder make chicken salad out of chicken @#@# it makes you just appreciate what you have now.

because in the next few years they are going to go back to being an afterthought.

I mean Manhattan Kansas? who wants to live there outside of people that live in Kansas city or in Kansas? Right now more because of snyder but once he is gone the program goes back to mediocrity.

It would be tough for someone to make an argument that he isn't one of the top 10 coaches to ever coach college football. Not wins and losses as much as what he can do with such average talent.

You give this squad to pinkel and you are looking at a .500 team at best

And even if the program is doing well when he retires it will never be a sexy school for kids to go to.

Its good feeling good about k state now but its going to suck in a few years when we are back to the ron prices of the world etc.

Meh...you never know what might happen. This isn't that different than the Colts a few years ago watching Manning get older. You just have to hope that eventually they'll be able to find their Andrew Luck of a coach.

I'm just enjoying the moment now. With the new stadium additions and everything else being planned I think KSU football is in good hands going forth. We may never see the dominance of the Bill Snyder era again but I think KSU can be a perennial 7-9 win type program with a good coach. My hope is that Jim Leavitt takes over after Bill Snyder retires (whenever that is).

Just enjoy the moment. No guarantees in life. I've experienced similar circumstances with University of Houston football, except we lose outstanding coaches to other Texas teams. THAT BLOWS!

I'm not a K-State fan, but what that man can do with his players is simply amazing. He'll never get the proper credit by the MSM, and that's sad.

My hats off to him and his program.

As for the day he departs, wow, if I were a K-State fan, I'd worry too. Just enjoy this while it last. For us on the MO side of the line, we get Gary (!!!!!), we all get to live life knowing he'll never get it done for the great state of MO but they'll stick with him just the same. So I chose to stick with Navy as my #1... Regardless of their play, you know you have some of the best kids in the world suiting up for you on those Saturdays. You know they'll do great things when they graduate. And you know on those Saturdays, for them and the country, their best days are ahead of them.

Go Navy, beat Army....

That's why this season is so important. If they can pull off a miracle and win it all, it will help them get some players and make it a little more attractive to a good coach.


I am not holding my breath, though.

Really? Do you remember how bad the program was before he took over?

They were ranked lower than Wichita State in Street and Smiths, and WSU didn't even have a football program any longer.

Bill Snyder should be put up there with the Bear Bryants and Knute Rockne's of the world.
Snyder continues to overachieve with lesser talent.

Without a doubt, he is the greatest College coach of my lifetime. I would buy the movie.

Bill Snyder is a boring personality. His character would not make for an entertaining feature-length film.

The Bill Snyder story will be best represented in a book, not a movie.

Is it any good? I mean a serious book of literary journalism. Something that can take the time to properly deliver the story. That cover design is not inspiring.

It basically talks about HCBS's life growing up as a kid, how he reflected his younger years as a graduate assistant at USC, before going to North Texas to be Hayden Fry's right hand man and the move to Iowa, as well as his time in Manhattan.

Amazon customer reviews (9 of them) gave it a 4.5 out of 5 stars. Granted, I am a K-State fan, but even with my bias aside, it is a good book. Great book for business and/or coaches to read. A lot of stuff in there that I didn't know.

I remember what KSU was like before Snyder. He's the greatest living coach in college football, without question, and quite possible the greatest coach in the history of the game. He simply walked into Mordor and turned Sauron into his prison bitch.

It's ok, if you're a shirt tucking booster.

The book "I" want to read is the one where Snyder stands in front of a podium during a team meeting and says: "So, I understand we had 23 players... TWENTY THREE FUCKING SCHOLARSHIP PLAYERS miss fucking class today!!! Why the fuck do you think that's ok"?

There are hundreds of player stories like this out there. And those need to be woven into a book about what the old guy had to put up with from 18-22 year old low digit IQ types.

I forget the game, but I love the story of Bill in the locker room at half time telling them that if they give up any more points he's going to blow his head off with a shotgun.

That's how I am treating it. I honestly can say that I didn't think K-State would come close to reaching 1998 level type of a year, where they were just so close to make it to the NC game.

They had several years afterwards '98 where they were legit good, just either it was injuries, dumb decisions or what not that derailed their possible NC run. But it wasn't just the same as it was in '98.

I will say that if K-State beat Baylor this weekend, December 1st will possibly be the biggest game in the state of Kansas. Think '98 against Nebraska but on cocaine.

Absolutely will. Bought season tickets with my brother, sister, and we all chipped in together for my mother's ticket as a present for her birthday/mothers day before the season began.

I'd probably would almost venture to say by and large, it would probably be the best birthday present she could ever asked for, and we all had no idea that K-State was going to be BCS #1 to begin with, let alone possibly playing for the National Fucking Championship.

God... I really really hope we beat Baylor...
