Here's the deal. D. can write a book that a few K-State fans will read. ORRR he can write a scintillating tell-all that unearths ugly truths of college athletics and potentially becomes a best seller.

It's all up to D.

We need D. to put on his investigative journalist hat and get to the bottom of some crap. Like, what's the real story on the stolen baseball? What's the truth about Brent Venables?

What else?

What happened with the Venzy HCIW deal he had during Snyder 2.0

You think that was real?

Repost in honor of Fritch - few love K-State more...

As most people know, the weekly Bill press conferences are pretty much a waste of everyone's time because Bill never actually answers any questions with any amount of substance. So, what typically happens, is most "reporters" don't even bother to ask questions and it's usually the same 3-4 people that ask most of the questions. As we can all probably guess, one of those people is Fritchen.

I can't remember for certain, but I think it was back in 99 during the press conference before K-State played at Nebraska. As Fritchen is prone to doing, he asked this incredibly long-winded question that took about an hour for him to spit out. It was basically something like "Bill, can you talk about what it's like being in a stadium like Nebraska's with 80,000 fans, a historic stadium, they're all yelling before the game, you're underneath the stadium and you can hear them yelling and you're trying to get your players ready for the game (it goes on and on and on and then ends with) can you tell us what you're actually doing right before you take the field?"

Bill pauses for about 10 seconds (probably mocking the fact that Fritch took five minutes to ask a question) and then Bill says, "What's that game that the youngsters like? Chutes and Ladders? Is that what it's called? That's what we do."

Fritch should really put this story in. Shows the mischievous side of Bill.

Only D Scott can help us answer that question!

The only reason I kept him around was because of special teams. If special teams would have dropped out of the top 10 I would have canned his ass in a heartbeat.

I want D-Scott to get confirmation on the story below

Its 1999 and our Wildcats are playing like crap against ISU, down 28-7 at half. Snyder doesn't say anything during halftime then right before they take the field he says "If you don't play better in the 2nd half I'm going to blow my brains out with a shotgun" or something to that effect and then they won 35-28.

No idea if its true or not

I'd like to hear more about this and how he was a mean SOB in practice.

Perhaps we let D.Scott do his thing while gE writes the unauthorized and/or made-up biography of LHC Bill Snyder.

Oh, crap. We could divide and conquer. Different people take different topics, then investigate the hell out of them.

The way this story was told to me, all he said was "Don't rough ridin' disappoint me."

Heard the same from a friend whose brother was a walk-in at the time.
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 bet Bill had custom tailored motivational messages for different subsets of players categorized by personality type. Clever old bastatd.

Happy DSF got work, but this will be Snyder's 4th book and he isn't someone I think is particularly deep or revelatory, so I think I'll pass. If it's discovered that he's covering new ground or if DSF is able to get him to actually honestly open up, I'll change my mind.

Need a few more to round out the literature section at the LHC Bill Snyder Museum gift shop.

That’s interesting because that’s the exact URL I had saved. If you go directly to the website it says it’s unavailable put embedded it works.
