10-15 years ago K-State got some good players. But, that was with Mangino and Stoops recruiting (for KSU). I don't think BS and KSU can recruit without asst. coaches like Mangino, Stoops, etc. (That was a once in a lifetime for KSU) Now K-State must recruit kids that were five years old when Mangino and Stoops coached there. In his last two years Snyder ended LAST place. It's going to be damn near impossible to catch lightning in a bottle again(Mangino, Stoops, Leach and Leavit) Even with great asst. coaches BS got ONE conference championship in 17 years. Now with a decent staff it's going to be the same old thing (excitement from beating Arizona for a recruit) The bar just isn't that high at KSU. Imagine if KU BB won ONE conference championship in 17 years.
Would KU Fans call the coach a legend?
The schools are just on two different levels.
The mentality is different .
If you disagree I call BS. (Bill Snyder as an example)
