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.
I don't give a shit about how Bill Snyder is perceived. He's done a great job with what he has. However, last night was a huge choke job, and he deserves some blame for that. In the big picture though K State is a shit program, and no one will ever do what he did.
Marty actually had the best talent (IMO) for 2 years in the NFL where he should have won it all.
