No. 20 K-State wary of opening against FCS foes

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) No. 20 Kansas State knows well the perils of playing an FCS school the first weekend of the season. The Wildcats were stunned by North Dakota State last year. This time, it's Stephen F. Austin that rolls into town looking for an upset. The Wildcats return a bevy of talent from a team that rebounded from its season-opening loss to win eight times, though...

K-State picks Jones as starting running back

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- The three running backs who returned for No. 20 Kansas State this season had run for fewer than 50 yards, so to say the competition was wide open this offseason would be an understatement. When things shook out, Charles Jones had risen to the head of the depth chart. Jones wound up beating Jarvis Leverett Jr. and DeMarcus Robinson for the starting nod, and incoming...

Wildcats vow they won't get caught with their pants down again

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- On paper, Kansas State appears destined to rip Stephen F. Austin another orifice. Besides the obvious gulfs in talent and depth, the force of nature that is Tyler Lockett and the fact that the Lumberjacks have been outscored, 209-20, over their last four meetings with a Football Bowl Subdivision dance partner, there's the idea that the Wildcats have been reminded...

Stephen F. Austin-Kansas St. Preview

(AP) - The cliche runs off the tongue of quarterback Jake Waters, one that is used in everyday life by millions of people but perhaps most accurately reflects that situation at Kansas State. ''What a difference a year makes,'' he said. Indeed, a year ago Waters was the junior college transfer in a heated battle with Daniel Sams to win the starting job. The Wildcats...

K-State could use rare running back-by-committee

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- The top three returning running backs for No. 20 Kansas State this season have combined to carry the ball 11 times for 55 yards. None of them has ever scored a touchdown. Let that sink in for a moment. The graduations of three-year starter John Hubert and longtime backup Robert Rose have left a massive void for the Wildcats in the offensive backfield, and that...

K-State's Truman makes world stop in weight room

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Every school has "max-out day," when guys try to better their best in a bunch of weight-lifting exercises -- bench press, squat, hang clean. It's no different at Kansas State. But when linebacker Jonathan Truman wraps his fingers around the bar, and there is so much iron on the ends that it almost seems to bend, everybody else in the room stops what...

K-State's Truman makes world stop in weight room

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) Every school has ''max-out day,'' when guys try to better their best in a variety of weightlifting exercises. No. 20 Kansas State is no different. But when Jonathan Truman settles under the bar, everybody else in the room stops what they're doing to watch. The former walk-on-turned starting linebacker is quite possibly the pound-for-pound...

K-State's Mueller doesn't just embody character -- the dude is one, too

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- All great free spirits start somewhere, and Ryan Mueller's tightrope walk between genius and madness starts in third grade. It starts with a giant sheet of white paper, a bunch of utensils and one simple instruction from his teacher. "Be creative," she says. He's charged, along with the rest of the third graders, with making a hat to present to...

Heisman finalist Klein returns as K-State coach

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) Collin Klein is back at Kansas State. The former Heisman Trophy finalist is serving as an offensive quality control coach under longtime coach Bill Snyder. It makes sense, too, considering the two are known for their attention to detail, their toughness and their ability to inspire others. In fact, the only difference between them may be their ages: Snyder turns...

Photo: Here’s A Picture Of Bill Snyder Being Tossed Into A Pool By His Austin College Swim Team In The 1970s

To those of us in our 20s, we only know a world where Bill Snyder has been the head coach at Kansas State, or for a few years, retired.

Bill Snyder crushes college athletics, says schools have 'sold out'

At age 74, Bill Synder can definitely be classified as an old school football coach.
