    Greg…Greg…Greg….

    Comparing Bob Knight going to TTech from Indiana to Bill Snyder returning to KState is not even close to accurate. KState had a two year reloading going on when Snyder retired. Two of the QB’s he had at the time are/were starting for Washington State/Wisconsin after Grimace ran them off. The defensive staff has been significantly upgraded. You are going to be very surprised by Kansas State under Bill Snyder.

    Pt,
    I hope you’re right and I’m wrong…but I’ll bet a large-carbon-footprint steak dinner on this one.

    As a KU fan… as fortunate as it was two years ago that we had a decent team with an easy schedule and backed into the Orange Bowl, this year looks to be a really good team (the defense thing notwithstanding) and a really difficult schedule, it will be as frustrating as it was exciting during the Orange Bowl year, to end up in the Alamo Bowl. Longest run on sentence in history!

    Seriously, thanks for the college football post. I have no clue about the North. Nebraska… new QB. Otherwise, easy #1 choice. Mizzou… sort of the same deal, but I can’t see higher than #2. KU is in there somewhere. ISU will be garbage. Wild card… Colorado. I have expected so much more out of them and Coach Crazy hasn’t turned them around. I wouldn’t be surprised by a KU like surprise season with their schedule. Look at the home games they get. Steal one or two, win what they should, and who knows. Of course, their QBs suck. So, what do I know?

    Jayhawks don’t stand a chance with that schedule!! They’ll be lucky to win 5 games!

    I was in Columbia during the spring game.
    Their quarterback was throwing the ball at
    incredible speed and accuracy. I heard one
    of the coaches say that his arm was stronger
    than any other he’d ever seen. The ball
    whistled when it went thru the air.
    Gabbert needs time but even with a few games
    under his belt he will surprise the entire league.
    Does he have the receivers and line? That remains
    to be seen but the guy is incredible.
    I hope KU has a good season. It looks to be
    Manginos last good year for a long time.
    Oklahoma and Texas should be unbeatable outside
    theirgame in dallas.
    And how about my Royals. Big win in fenway
    park. The bats came alive and the pitching
    by hochevar and cruz was strong. But noone
    in baseball compares with soria…wow!

    I bleed purple, but Greg’s right about Bill Snyder. To assume we’re going to have a good year or a good couple of years under him is simply naive. We don’t even have a running back. (I’ve heard Daniel Thomas still isn’t practicing with the team) And who knows how good we’ll be at QB. If it’s Coffman, he reminds me of Dylan Meier and we all remember how bad those two years were. Defense should be improved, but we needed a HUGE upgrade in talent in order to see significant imporovement and we didn’t get it. It’ll be a small miracle if Snyder gets this team to 7-5. In fact, if that were to happen it may be his best coaching job ever.

    To me, K-State’s re-hiring of Bill Snyder looks the college football version of AfterM*A*S*H….taking limited parts of a once-great cast, putting them together, and hoping people will watch. The only difference is Snyder IS Hawkeye Piercer – the most important cast member. AfterM*A*S*H tried to make due with Radar, Clinger, Hot Lips, and Fr. Mulcahey. Good luck, but, I am not holding my breath.

    The reason why K-State hired Bill Snyder is because no one else really wanted the job.It was either Snyder or a 1-AA coach.

    Many of my K-State friends were inraged when Ron Prince got hired. They coulden’t understand why the Wildcats would hire an inexperenced man running an mediocre offence that Prince had in VA.

    What many of them ignored the fact that Prince was the 6th choice. No one else wanted the job other then Prince.

    Whitlock said it best last year. Snyder did a good job at K-State. BUT, he didn’t turn it into a good job.

    It was either Snyder, or some no name 1-AA coach from Mcneese St.

    What is the primary source for the Limbaugh quote? When did he say that? Do you have a direct link to the quote?

    Alferd,
    I got that quote from his radio show I believe back in February or March. He was just telling a story and I happened to be listening. I don’t think it is transcribed anywhere but you could probably find it in his show archives if you were diligent enough to research it.
