    Bill Snyder Is Officially Back

    Yes, for those of you who have been sleeping, Bill Snyder is back! Kansas State has announced they are scheduling three future games against University of Texas San Antonio. You say you have never heard of University of Texas San Antonio? That's because the program has yet to play a college football game. A perfect scheduling match for K State and Bill Snyder, don'tcha think?

    I don't think Snyder's pud non-conference schedule will work out as well this time around. But our non-conference needs to be a little more like theirs instead of what we face the next few years.

    We need to find a happy median between our schedule and KSU's schedule.

    Re: Bill Snyder Is Officially Back

    UTSA is a start-up football program that will not play any games this season. It will then compete in the Football Championship Subdivision as an independent for two seasons before transitioning to the Football Bowl Subdivision in 2013 and 2014. During that time, opponents can use wins over UTSA toward bowl eligibility.

    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    yeah, god forbid we play any real competition.. it's much better to play the cupcakes, barely slide into bowl eligibility, and then get pounded by a team that didn't need to half-*** it to get to the bowl

    *edit: not saying that's what would happen to our team, I'm just saying that's the only scenario where playing cupcakes "helps"

    K-State is a disgrace to college football. What will they do next.... petition the NCAA to allow them to schedule games against high school teams?

    UTSA, please beat K-State's ***. Bill Snyder is a pathetic scheduler, doesn't let his teams play any decent competition til the conference.

    This kind of stuff has to catch up with him. The lower tier teams arent so lower tier anymore.

    Anytime K-State loses I am happy. Bill needs to head back to the nursing home. God.... he was old when he retired but man he looks like he is pushing 100 now.

    Re: Bill Snyder Is Officially Back

    I have to laugh at all this Snyder hate. I happen to think he's way past his prime to do anything now, but he made K-State into a national power by beating the Big 8 and Big 12 big dogs, plus Pete Carroll and USC.
    If all he did was beat the little sisters of the poor, K-State would never have been ranked, much less in the top ten like they were for years...

    Re: Bill Snyder Is Officially Back

    Not to mention our own Chris Williams wanting us to schedule more like KSU!

    It has its' pros and cons. I'd rather play one or two cupcakes to start the season and then have some good OOC competition (Iowa fits this bill every year) before Big 12 play starts.

    Northern illinois is usually a happy median... so was Uconn about 7 years ago...
    id say Northern Illinois, UNI, and Uconn are all average teams. ISU cant predict up swings of talent in teams that weve played since ive been in school. and if we cant beat those 3 teams more often then not, we dont deserve a bowl game, and we def wont make it to one against anyone with a pulse.

    Would Cyclone fans laugh at finishing the season ranked in the Top-10 6 out of 8 years, and in the Top-20 7 out of 8 years? How about winning the Big 12 North 4 out of 6? Sign me up for whatever plan Snyder used to accomplish that success.
