The sad thing about K-state football is..
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.

Just don't hire RonP and you'll be fine.

DaFace 11-11-2012 10:36 AM 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.

Original thoughts require original threads. Bravo

Just enjoy the moment for now. There will be plenty of time to worry about the other shit later

Crush 11-11-2012 10:44 AM

You could just clone him and never have to worry about it.

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.

Somebody's not happy that the Wildcats are getting all this positive attention.....

TribalElder 11-11-2012 11:35 AM

They will likely play the ducks for the title

I am going to say something that everyone already knows:

KSU has a lot better chance against Oregon than any of the SEC teams.
