According to ESPN.com's Big 12 blog, Kansas State head coach Bill Snydersuffered a torn MCL and ACL after two of his players -- defensive tackle Prizell Brown and offensive lineman Ethan Douglas. Combined weight: 560 pounds -- inadvertently fell into the coach's knee early on in spring practice.
After initially deciding to keep the injury from the media, Snyder today acknowledged -- thanks to Internet rumors -- the extent of the damage to one of his 70-year-old knees.
"I don't know if you've ever had 600 pounds fall on your knee or not, but that's what I did," Snyder said.
"Doctor jerked my leg around and said your golf game is over unless you have surgery," Snyder said. "But the last time I played golf was an awful long time ago."
