    Thought the rumor was that Veatch got passed over because he would not agree to letting Snyder have his son take over the FB program.

    He got passed over because Snyder didn't want him in the seat. Classic case of the football coach being the most powerful man on campus.

    I think Laird was at ISU one year - worked under Bruce Van de Velde. I had occasion to run across him several times. He is one sharp, impressive individual. He also said playing for Bill Snyder shaped his life.
    From what I know about Gene Taylor (not much) - don't understand bringing him in. I agree with you - losing someone like Veatch is big for K-State.
    I frankly would have no problem for Veatch to be ISU's next AD.
