I bought them both off ebay. How shitty K-State was makes the last 25ish years that much sweeter. #tighttuckdngaf
Bought three to make a spread and Snyder signed one of them. #outtucktemall

Random, but this surfaced tonight while I was organizing some stuff in the basement. Wefald gave it to me when I was writing a Collegian story about his retirement. At the time, I thought it was weird he had it so readily available (still picture him opening a closet full of them and grabbing one off the top of the stack), but I'm glad I have it now. He also gave me a copy of the "apology story" SI wrote a few years later.

Why did they write an apology story?

I believe it was a deal Wefald or Snyder (can't remember who) made with the reporter. If we started to improve, he'd come back to Manhattan and do another story. It wasn't a literal apology so much as a "look, they don't suck anymore" story.

Not media, but an anonymous Big 12 coach.

"It’s an interesting situation because Coach Snyder had health problems this year and people are going to think they may fall off because of the long-term uncertainty, but his coordinators do most of the actual coaching, and they’ve got a quality staff. I don’t see that really being an issue.”
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

I'm thinking that is Gundy.

How much of this do you guys actually believe about it's mainly the coordinators coaching?  What does snyder do up til 3am other than snarfing t-bell?

I've always thought that when we win, synder gets all the credit, but when we lose it's mainly aimed at the coordinators.  Can't be both.

I think anyone who has ever had a conversation with anyone over the age of 75 understands that this team wouldn't win any football games if LHC Bill Snyder were actually doing all of the things he gets credit for. I do believe that having him in the head coach position probably helps with recruiting, though.

Nothing anyone associated with K-State football does "helps with recruiting."

Feel like we've had current players help more with recruiting than anything.

I think recruiting is probably better than it would be with Sean as head coach, the same staff and no Bill as figurehead.

K-State football recruiting is merely an alignment of kids intrinsic desires with the extrinsic logistics of arranging flights and hotels.

IDEA:  lots of old travel agents have lost their jobs over the past decade.  Let's talk a couple of them out of retirement and have them be "grad assistants" (lifetime learning).  They can focus 100% on booking flights and rooms for youngsters.
