    “The miracle in Manhattan” is free today. Talks about the first few years of Bills career, what he called “the foundation”

    Is it true that his first year there, he redshirted every starter from the previous year? Basically with the idea that they were already awful, so it won’t get worse playing backups and allowing him to coach up the “best” players on campus for the following year?

    Snyder undoubtedly had a huge impact on that, but I imagine the facilities would’ve seen substantial upgrades regardless. Hell even Arkansas’ facilities have improved and they routinely get sodomized by the likes of Buttgers, Toledo, and North Texas and frankly I’m not even sure they’ve ever won a football game.

    longer he stalls the more likely the early signing period is going to be a flop

    Very much true that a small percentage of former players don't like him. Plenty of stories out there on the facebook. And, no doubt, some of those former players that don't like him are kids he took a chance on when very few would and they didn't keep up their end of the deal. Heck, you even hear about the occasional former player who loves the guy. CTE victims, I believe.

    In reality, my post was merely an attempt to keep Littrell at UNT. I think he drastically underperformed this year, but overall he is lightyears beyond BB. All my UNT buddies are terrified of KSU stealing him away.

    Heard on the radio today. Bill Snyder laid into an assistant for not calling and planning for the railroad schedule when the buses had to stop for a train.

    Another time got into a town late, blocked off the hotel parking lot and did walk throughs in the parking lot.

    Hear QB Alex Delton is transfering
    Not surprised since Thompson will fit better in most non snyder offenses..see littrell

    Alex Barnes still thinking NFL?

    Hearing Keenan Garber maybe looking elsewhere. Emaw wanted him on defense, he wanted offense. Some mention of Colorado State offer

    My wife graduated from KSU during the Prince years and Snyder was the commencement speaker. Graduation was held in Bramlage and she had left something in there so she went to go get it after practicing walking. She saw Snyder on the court with a tape measure, confirming the distances between rows of chairs in preparation for his commencement speech.

    When Snyder "retired" the first time he kept his office in the football complex while Prince had to take a smaller office. I was told that he could be seen coaching up players from his office during Prince's practices on field. (This I don't believe, I can't see Snyder being loud enough for his commands to reach the players on field)

    Snyder was known to periodically showing up to practice stinking of scotch.

    Unknown player was recruited out of high school and on scholarship, showed up to fall camp fat and out of shape...also he sucked. Snyder had him run stairs for the entire practice everyday of the season until he finally quit and got the scholarship back.

    Blamed the loss to Baylor in 2012 (52-24) and potential national title game appearance on Heisman Trophy finalist Collin Klein who threw 3 int's and only ran for 2.3 ypc. (I had to look up the box score)

    There was a last chance U feel to the program during Snyder II, frequently player motivation consisted of telling kids that no one else wanted them and they better fall in line or they were done as college football players

    Held scholarship checks from players. Virginia Tech got in trouble for having a similar proposal in writing Snyder just did it. Some former KSU player made the same accusation so I'm going to consider it the truth.

    Had relationships with local judges to keep his players out of the headlines and out of legal trouble.

    There’s no way this is true, we have had players get in trouble over like fuckin parking tickets and shit. Or if it is true it was a really bad relationship with those judges
