Unless my wife threw it away recently, there's a copy of my 1990 Sports Illustrated Football Preview issue with Gordy Lockbaum of Holy Cross on the cover in the spare bedroom.

The main article was about the worst program in D1. It was Kansas State. Kansas State had never won a conference championship. Their best regular season record since WWII was 7-3. They had gone to one bowl game, in a year they finished 6-5-1. They were in the Big 8, not the Big 12. They didn't play the Texas schools every year, but were over-matched in their conference, even by Iowa State.

They had a new coach who had gone 1-10 in his first season. He provided some of the humorous anecdotes in the article. His name was Bill Snyder.

The turnaround Bill Snyder caused at Kansas State is the most impressive in college football since WWII. To win as long as he has at a school with so much against it is amazing.
FWIW, there were no Texas schools among the membership of the Big Eight.

Definitely correct that K-State has historically been a bad football program. Almost 70 years between conference championships in 1934 and 2003 and an overall losing  record of 518-635-41 since the Wildcats began play in 1896.

Snyder responsible for about 40% of those wins - 203 - since becoming head coach in 1989 and then coming out of a three year retirement in 2009 to lead the program again.


Lambert played at K-State prior to the Bill Snyder era, correct?

Correct. Lambert finished in 1986, Snyder started there in 1989.

I plan to check the final score of this one and otherwise not let it have an effect on my weekend plans (which may include getting out of the way of Hurricane Irma in any event).

Never mind the betting line, let's get to the real purpose of the game. How much are they paying us?

$775,000

Here are the payouts for our pay games from what I've gathered:

YEAR   TEAM   $$$$   
2015   Kentucky   $900,000   
2016   Louisville   $600,000   
2017   Kansas State   $775,000   
2018   Tennessee   ?   
2019   Clemson   $1,100,000   ?
2020   Tennessee   $1,500,000   
2021   Illinois   $1,200,000   
2022   Indiana   $1,200,000   ?
2023   Indiana   $1,300,000   ?

That storm looks like a real mess. be safe. Go to Manhattan Kansas, it will be bone dry.... much like the way KSU is going to enter us.

This is also a homecoming game for Lambert otherwise we could play a "body bag" closer to Charlotte.

If the Niners can have some success running the ball and not commit bad penalties and turnovers, I think they could beat the spread.

Quote
“We are definitely going to be ready for the option,” he said. Kirby, a senior K-State linebacker, is confident in his team’s ability to stuff Charlotte every time it runs the option

Umm... we don't run the option. Even if we should at least run a read option. Did we send them a fake scouting tape?

Everyone, please remember, we did not schedule this game to win.  We scheduled this game to lose, and to make $$$$$$$ in the process.

Kansascity.com: K-State’s opponent is coached by a former player. He’ll hardly recognize his alma mater

“I have great respect for what they have done, and, as much as anything, how they have done it,” Snyder said. “They have all the appropriate thoughts in mind. I don’t know much about their program. We haven’t competed against them before. But I know the three (K-State) coaches that are there. They are good people, and they have an excellent feel for the game.”

He doesn't know anything about us, but respects what we have done?

It does somewhat  bother me that we are viewed as an easier foe than the FCS team they just beat.
