    The judges thing was something I was told about 5+ years ago. Specifically issues involving FB players during Snyder I and start of Snyder II were funneled to a specific judge that helped keep things quiet. It's possible that judge relatively recently retired or quit being an FOP when Snyder quit winning.

    I do know that during Snyder I when you guys earned the juco reliant reputation, that KSU players stayed out of trouble because they didnt show up in the paper/news.

    Those fellows, like the bulk majority of the fine fellows that go through our fine institution, were just extremely upstanding youngsters. Salt of the earth type guys who just showed up to practice with their lunch pails and got a little bit better every day. If they would have been seen in the paper or on the news, it would have been for helping an elderly across the street or rescuing a poor cat that had found itself too far up a tree.

    Now I'm going to look at previous Fulmer Cups. It started in 2006 after Snyder I was over. Last 3 years KU has made the top 10 2x, KSU nowhere to be seen, I'll keep looking.

    "So the info I got wasn't anything earth shattering other than all of the recruits were on their visits in Manhattan last weekend around the time all of the Snyder news was going down. Keenan and his family were in Snyder's office and asked him point blank if he was going to be the coach in the future and Snyder said that he was. While they were on the highway headed back home, no more than an hour later, news broke that he (Snyder) wouldn't be coming back (or something to that effect). They haven't been told anything as far as who the new coach will be."

    This is only pure speculation but my guess is there are stipulations in place regarding the old man’s continued access to and presence around the team/facilities and no decent coach in his right mind will want the job until he passes.

    littrell would make KSU just another run of the mill big 12 air raid team

    He has signed 1 recruit from Texas or Oklahoma in his entire career. That will not work in the B12. No connections at the P5 level

    “Kansas State was lead to believe a certain financial package would be enough and it turned out it wasn't. So someone upped the ante on the deal or they weren't as in lock-step as they believed.”

    I think the ND State coach would be a better fit anyways. K State needs to stick with the hard nosed Juco all star team model.

    If it makes you feel better Pooka Williams was arrested and suspended indefinitely. He was 90% of our offense this year.

    The 8 ku football fans that are still left are losing their minds.

    Our beat writer was on the radio saying Littrell wasn’t really considered and saying nice things about Klieman, sounds like shit he was fed from the AD
