I often find myself thinking, "How do Iowa State fans do it?" At least we have a history to look back to. Probably makes it worse for us as fans, but imagine if we had never won back to back to back conference championships, or an mnc or the Big xii title game. Sucks now, but at least we were good, nay, damn good once.
Things to fix:
-new City Council
-new team surgeon
-replace Bohn, Benson, and DiSteF
-add PE major
-talk Boulder PD into not arresting football players
-accept any recruit that has a pulse academically
-get better donors
-get better state support
-get better fans
Then we're back.
It happened at KSU because of Bill Snyder. Without Snyder, KSU hasn't done much.
Did it happen at Colorado because of Bill McCartney?
Depressing thread is depressing. The K-State program you speak of, circa 1989, had won 1 game in three years. That is the basement of rock bottom hotel. The fact that we can see the basement (we haven't hit it yet, hoping we won't/can't because of Pac 12 money) is inexplicable.
It happened at Colorado prior to McCartney. And yes, there's no doubt that KSU wouldn't be anywhere close to where they are without Snyder. I'm not denying that at all. In fact, I'm celebrating it. If one guy can turn around a program like that, who's to say we can't get the next Bill Snyder here?
Snyder for sure did it, but after he showed he could have success the support from the school came too...
You forgot to move the university out of Boulder
Slade, Colorado is in a very small handful of schools that have finished in the top 10 at least once in every decade since the 60's.
Anyway, Snyder is the reason for KSU turning it around, but a nother big advantage that KSU has that we don't is a JUCU factory in your own backyard and being able to let any of those JUCO's into school.
What I find interesting in Bill Snyder is the fact that he has resurrected himself. His last two years before retiring it appeared that he was losing his touch. His recent return he has been able to revitalize himself and his program. Interestingly enough he has only beaten the Buffs 6 times in 19 meetings.
The good QB play has helped them along with a tough Defense.
