Prince ****ed that program, and Gramps will do nothing to revive it.
More accurately, Gramps sent that program downhill his last couple years and Prince finished them off.:thumbsup: I love how everyone conveniently ignores Snyder's last couple years before he retired.
they weren't exactly the "golden years" thats for sure.
How did I know this was about KjSu before I even opened the thread...
Remember this? "Kansas State did it the right way when the Wildcats brought Ron Prince to Manhattan." http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/blackhistory/news/story?id=2325630
Yeah, what dumbschits. Prince w/ his Power Towel has brought back the KjSU of the 80s.
Yeah they were pretty bad as a team, but at least Grandma wasn't making his assistants run stadium stairs while simultaneously trying to bankrupt the athletic department.
I have to say that the epic meltdown in the little apple is amusing to me. They're in about the same spot we were in with upChuck Fairbanks in 1980 when we axed a bunch of sports. KSU is on the verge of insolvency. If they have to pay out these settlements, it will likely cause the entire athletic department to collapse.
Maybe they'll be replaced with Utah or BYU when they cant stay in the Big XII.
If I were running things at the Big 12 offices, I'd be making contingency plans right now. Seriously. This has the potential to totally blow up that entire athletic department. We'd be better off with Utah anyway, save for the goofy travel times. The extra TV sets from SLC would bring some clout to the league as well.
It'd be nice to get another mountain state represented too.
Utah would quickly grow into a big rivalry game for us.
They are already grasping for any money they can get their hands on - you can buy a season ticket for $178 if you are a young alumni. That comes out to about $25 a game.
This is how serious new Kansas State athletic director John Currie is about cramming people in at Snyder Family Stadium this fall:
•1,200 season tickets — dubbed “K-State Pledge” tickets — are available at $99 each. Fans who buy those tickets and attend at least five of the six home games will be guaranteed the same tickets during the 2010 season, when the Wildcats play host to such big-name programs as UCLA, Texas and Nebraska.
•The first 500 fans who buy a $35 ticket for the Sept. 5 season opener against Massachusetts will receive a free Wildcats Classic DVD.
•Any fan with a UMass ticket stub is eligible for a $10 discount toward the purchase of a ticket for the Sept. 26 game against Tennessee Tech.
•And the ultimate — 1,989 tickets for the UMass game are on sale for just $9, which, of course, was the price of general-admission tickets in 1989, Bill Snyder’s first season.
