It had to happen, and it should've happened a few years ago. Everybody's time comes, but it's still kinda sad. ITT feel free to share fun Bill memories, be they huge and obvious or be they small and weird. Plenty of other threads to stink up with bitter Bill memzys, so no g'Eing in here.

Here's to you, Scheme Doctor. :cheers:

One fun thing I remember that showcased LHCBS's attention to detail and general wizardry was in, maybe...2014 or so? We were playing either TCU or WVU, I think TCU. They were returning a kick and got a giant return. Then they come back from the break and Bill had calmly called the refs over and told them that they had two #2s on the field. Penalty. Long return negated. We win a closey.

What about when his daughter got proposed to during the EKU game during a timeout and he kinda feigned interest for like two seconds and then went right back to coaching with his super srs face  :lol:

In Snyder 1.0, our defensive guys had the most giant shoulder pads, and absurd neckrolls, and they just looked so big and mean and funny. And simultaneously, our tight ends lined up standing with their hands on their hips like big doofuses. Very goofy way for gigant d00ds to line up.

Gave Daniel Sams a chance to play QB when no one else would, and for that I am forever grateful.

Around 2009 as a sophomore in college Bill was doing an autograph session at the union. I went and got a poster signed, he recognized me bc my parents are townie friends. He asked if I was going to be a doctor like my dad, I said I'm ya I'd like to, he asked if I was getting straight A's. I felt a bit embarrassed bc I was struggling with a couple classes at the time. That small comment motivated me even more to get better grades and now I'm in my final year of residency and I think about that interaction all the time.

The 12 title beating Texas was fun.  So cool to see the transition of the facilities (and so cool with the fog rolling in too). 2011 sending A&M out was nice. That overtime game was so much fun.

There's just too many to list.... The guy IS K-State football.

So far, since the birth of my daughter, only 3 people have asked me if she was my granddaughter.  One of the three is LHC Bill Snyder. 

We have been truly blessed to know him and have him put K-State football on the map.

After we beat OU (I think) in like 1993, he exuberantly jumped into the arms of one of our bigger coaches, either Mangino or Latina. Not subdued at all like he was in later years.

Dusting this one off...

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."

Whatever year it was the first time A&M came up to Manhattan as a new Big XII team.  They were not ready for the Scheme Doctor that day.  Snyds did an onside kick after the first score and it physically stunned every A&M person in the stadium.  They never recovered, and their Cadet dudes were like wtf.
