K-State Slate: 7.15.15 - Bill Snyder On Your Television

People in Charleston are optimistic, and Topeka gets its 15 minutes of fame.

The sun came up yesterday, and so did Bracket's profile of our very own fourth string long-snapper, Clayton Johnson.

For every action, there is an opposite and equal reaction, and Pete Fiutak of the Charleston Daily Mail serves as the opposite to Bill Connely's K-St(h)aterade yesterday. The guy has the cajones to go on the internet, sit in front of a camera, and tell the citizens of Earth that Kansas State will win ten (!) games next year... In football. Not basketball. Ignoring all the drugs this guy is probably smoking, I might be able to talk myself into believing this sentiment. Looking back at the 2013 season (which is the closest thing to a mirror image we will get), we were two wins shy of ten victories at 8-5. Replace North Dakota State with South Dakota, switch the Oklahoma State and TCU results around, throw in a win against Texas/Oklahoma and a bowl victory, and you got a stew goin'. Unfortunately, that's about as good as it could possibly get barring some 2011 craziness, and seven victories is about as much as I would be willing to put my name next to.

SportsCenter will be in a Topeka near you to cover the World Horseshoe Pitching Tournament on Saturday. Bill Snyder will be on television, along with three-time defending men's horseshoes champion Alan Francis, Travis Kelce of the Chiefs, and Michael Wilhoite of the 49ers as guests of that night's show.
