It's hard to say where he ranks in coaching history because of where he coaches.
Sounds like Marty.
If he had only been the coach of the 49ers in the 80's instead of Cleveland.
Or Dallas in the 90's. Or the Patriots last decade.
Face it: Bill Snyder, right or wrong, took advantage of the system. He scheduled powder puffs for years on end and won just enough games against shit teams to qualify for bowls.
Meanwhile, his tactics never succeeded and he failed year after year after year to bring in four and five star recruiting classes. Instead, he always had to rely on the dumbass transfer students and even dumber JuCo guys.
Now, I'm not saying he doesn't deserve respect for making a truly awful program better, but the guy has never won jackshit consistently, nor has he made Kansas State a "destination" school for football players.
