K-State looks to future after Fiesta Bowl loss
Question of the Day
There are even more holes on the defensive side.
Brown began his career at Miami before transferring to Kansas State, where he became a team captain and was this voted the Big 12’s top defensive player by the conference.
He led a defense stocked with experienced players that managed to shut down some of the Big 12’s most high-powered offenses _ Oklahoma, West Virginia and Texas Tech among them.
Brown will be moving on along with fellow linebackers Jarrell Childs and Justin Tuggle, and the entire defensive line: tackles John Sua and Vai Lutui and ends Adam Davis and Meshak Williams. Cornerbacks Allen Chapman and Nigel Malone and safety Jared Milo are also seniors.
Yes, questions certainly abound as the Wildcats try to plug in replacements.
Snyder’s future is yet another question.
The architect of what’s widely been considered the greatest turnaround in the history of college football came back from a brief retirement in 2009 and did it again, taking a program that had lost its way back to the top of the Big 12.
Athletic director John Currie has said that the 73-year-old Snyder can remain Kansas State’s coach “as long as he wants,” but only Snyder knows how long that will be. He routinely turns back any questions about his future, preferring to focus entirely on the present.
Still, it’s clear Kansas State is positioning itself for his retirement.
The athletic department has begun a massive construction project on the west side of the stadium that bears Snyder’s name. While the immediate goal is to create better facilities for players and a better experience for fans, the long-term upshot is that it should help Kansas State woo Snyder’s replacement, whenever that’s necessary.
For now, it appears Snyder is turning his attention toward next season.
Given everybody they’ll lose to graduation, the Wildcats probably will expected to finish somewhere in the bottom half of the Big 12, and that should suit them just fine.
That’s right where they were picked to finish this season.
