My guess is Littrell..Will laugh if Leavitt
Also not happening
To keep things orderly?
Is an 80 year old man going to start a riot?
Glad he didn’t hang on too long. It was getting close. Good for bill
The word is he thought he could come back but was talked out of it by his son and some others
Guys who achieve at that level always believe they can keep going
I’ll be spamming this thread with bill stories / anecdotes
He once berated a waiter at a catered event for serving butter instead of margarine because butter didn’t fit into the strict nutrition plans he made for his players
When KSU and Nebraska played in the Coca-Cola bowl in Tokyo they shared a plane. Bill made sure his players sat on the side of the plane that wasn’t in the sun so that their energy wouldn’t be as zapped during the flight
He tired to hire a hypnotist when he was young to teach him how to compress six hours sleep into one so he could be more productive
He would describe plays in excruciating detail for minutes on end
He wore white nike Cortez for every game and when Nike stopped making them he hoarded hundreds of pairs to make sure he’d have enough. This went on long enough that the shoes came back into style
Auburn gladly offers Gus Malzahn as Snyder’s replacement. Gus’s excellent work with JUCO and transfer QBs should make him more than a worthy candidate for such a prestigious job.
He scripted games and practices and assistant meetings and made his assistants script their position meetings and he had to approve them
I'll see you and raise you Terry Bowden
Heard Snyder occasionally wouldn't give bowl game rings to players he didn't like or thought werent loyal.
Law enforcement? Snyder getting evicted?
When we were trying to come up money to build facilities when he started he offered to put in $100k of his own money
He fought against a new football complex for years because he didn’t want his office moved and his routine interrupted. Our AD finally had to tell him they were tearing down the building with or without him in it
Yes. He’s a colossal dickhead and a lot of former players and assistants do not like him
And yes he famously ate one meal per day, often Taco Bell, and he worked from 6am to 12am on a very regular basis. He lived as close as he possibly could to the football complex to maximize his productivity
Gus can take Terry as his OC/coke dealer and wreck shit in the Big 12.
Makes sense. Everyone hated Mangino bc he was a prick/taskmaster.
Beaty is a good dude, but couldnt coach his way out of a paper bag.
I think it was like 2012/13, and like many said most his pressers were useless, but someone asked him a question about how long they waiting until the snapped the ball, and Bill said something like "oh yeah, we average 34.6 seconds between snaps" and you knew he knew that number 100%
Funny how KU quit getting blown out so bad this year when they started to try to run down the clock.
Crazy it took them that long to figure out going 3 and out and using 40 secs was bad for your defense. Part of why emaw hung in games.
Brent Venebles left the offices to get a coke, there was a note on his door when he got back saying if that happened again he was canned. Other assistants had to hold mike stoops back from bum rushing bills office.
Bill would take Chuck long aside after every pass and critique something. Hayden fry told him to knock it off
When bielema arrived the assistant coach manual had instructions for how to shave
Players were complaining about the heart at a practice and Bill wore a coat to show them and he nearly collapsed and had to be taken in for fluids
Sounds right for Chuck "3rd and" Long
Are you Michael Biship?
Loving the Snyder stories.
this has always been my favorite snyder story
sad day, but it was time
0 - Fucks Given
The best story I have is from Carlos alsup, he would run his ass off all practice and Snyder just shunned him until one day he asked bill why he didn’t like him. The answer was as old man as it gets “I don’t like you, I love you, but you suck and you know it” great guy
Just like your team we will beat the baby shit out of you for years
Can’t tell, is this serious? Because if so, yikes Bill
Yes bill is a egomaniac
He used to do this thing where he'd get athletes and suggest to them that they should consider switching positions. So say it was a CB or something and Bill would say "hey so and so I think we could use you at receiver, but it's 100% your choice." And if the player responded "well coach I'd actually prefer to stay at CB," Snyder would move that player progressively down the depth chart day-by-day until the player agreed to switch positions.
FWIW, I went to the press conference after the TT game to see if I could trick him into saying he was retiring and he mushed the everloving shit out of me with a 2 minute answer about how hard the seniors work.
Sports are gay
can you guys just keep telling these stories they're enjoyable
if you have to just make them up thats fine
Put Tatarrax Hills on the map
That’s been known. But damn, how could he seriously watch this years team and think he should come back.
Regardless, congrats to all my kstatriot friends.
We can do this for a while, he is one of the most unique characters in football
bill would never change clothes choosing to shower fully dressed as it was an efficient way to wash his clothes and his body
It’s like you didn’t see what he was about
He wouldn’t allow practice to start unless his players all said a hail mary
This is a good story
Maybe. Shit he may not even see it
He used to always eat chocolate chip cookies when we hung out. Even if he was full lol. That’s what I’ll miss most about him
One of his first jobs was teaching Spanish and coaching swimming
