    Bill Snyder suffers torn MCL and ACL

    According to ESPN.com's Big 12 blog, Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder suffered 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."

    Probably won't replace his ACL at that age. I don't see Snyder running any cone drills in the future.

    That's honestly too bad for old balls. Rehabbing at that age has to be really tough.

    Re: Bill Snyder suffers torn MCL and ACL

    After all of those ruthless ***-kickings he gave us and recruits he stole from us, he probably had a little bad karma coming his way.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
