With vigilance by day and night our scanners trace the sky.

We’re not even sure Bill knows what’s going on at this point.

You would think, on today of all days, the news coffers would be exploding with material for us to share.

But they are not. On this, the 30th anniversary of the hiring of Bill Snyder by K-State, there’s barely a peep — because nobody has the slightest idea what’s really going on, although there are some pretty interesting guesses being thrown around privately.

The original post at GPC is $ubscription only, but the Coaching Carousel roundup at 247 offers the detail that Tim Fitzgerald is reporting that Snyder is likely gone today, with Seth Littrell of North Texas being Gene Taylor’s prime target.

Twitter user @rynjrgr shared the following this morning:

If that’s a sign, it also Means Things for current K-State assistants. Of course, it could also just be a sign that Thompson’s going to transfer, right? (h/t Luke Sobba)

Brett Vito of the Denton Record-Chronicle, the de facto paper of record for North Texas, ran with Fitz’s report.

One major suitor for Littrell isn’t anymore, as Texas Tech has swiped Matt Wells away from Utah State.to replace Kliff Kingsbury (who numerous reports are now linking to the offensive coordinator position at Southern California). The Aggies just finished a 10-2 regular season, and Wells has been a moderately hot target for other schools in recent years.

At the Eagle, Kellis Robinett reports that K-State’s assistants — with one telling exception, Sean Snyder — are still hot on the recruiting trail amidst all the drama.

In non-paid content, Fitz offers a retrospective on thirty years of Snyderball.

That’s all the actual news we have for you at the moment. This is your open thread for today’s shenanigans, although we would ask that you all refrain from kvetching about what other sites are and are not saying, publicly or privately. Our comments have better uses than fighting about your second-favorite K-State site, okay?

Stay tuned for news when it breaks, and also expect this week’s Bring on the Podcast to drop sometime today, featuring Luke’s visit with Ben Steele of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel ahead of tomorrow’s meeting with Marquette.
