It used to be that these media days were kind of semi-formal affairs. I remember that many teams came dressed to the nines when they arrived. The only team that came dressed in their coats and ties were the Kansas State Wildcats. They might reconsider in the future -- or at least let the players show a little originality and not come dressed in the same suits with the Powercat logo on the chest.

8. Does Bill Snyder still have the fire to patch up Kansas State? Unknown. His early comments would indicate he's either playing the Lou Holtz "poor us" card, or he realizes there is little chance of recapturing the Manhattan Magic.

Ultimately, however, the embarrassing financial revelations that rocked the K-State community this offseason may affect the program more than any of that. In case you missed it, former AD Bob Krause made an inexplicable, secret agreement to give fired coach Ron Prince $3.2 million in deferred payments. A subsequent audit by the Kansas Board of Regents uncovered another $845,000 in under-the-table payments over the years to numerous athletic officials, including Snyder. All of this happened under the watch of recently retired president Jon Wefald, a sports nut who was lauded for hiring Snyder back in 1989 but who apparently let the athletic department operate willy-nilly during his tenure. Clearly, heads will roll and things will change, and I just can't see it working out well for Snyder. It would be a shame to see him tarnish a previously impeccable legacy.

It'll be interesting to see how Chris Harper fits in at Kansas State. Harper, who spent his freshman season playing football at Oregon, is transferring to K-State and will be eligible for the 2010 season. The former Northwest High standout is intent on playing quarterback at KSU, and he certainly fits the Bill Snyder profile for that position. It was Snyder who got tremendous mileage out of dual-threat types Michael Bishop, Jonathan Beasley and Ell Roberson during his first tenure as coach. All three of those quarterbacks were raw passers who become better under Snyder's tutelage. But they also played before the explosion of spread offenses around the country, and particularly in the Big 12. It'll be interesting to see whether Harper can become a good-enough passer to play quarterback. Right now, he's probably not. But he'll have more than a year to get better.
