I am really pulling for him to shine along side Ray Kibble, Rapheal Guidry and Javonta Boyd. If they can all stay healthy Kansas State has the potential to be a stout defense in 2010. (Aug 26, 2010 | post #2)
Close but no cigar... :-) (Sep 8, 2009 | post #3)
I posted that link above for the video Snyderman Returns (which you'll see if you scroll down a little). If you watch the video all the way through it quickly reminds you of how hard Bill Snyders teams hit. That will be a welcome change no matter how many games we win. (Jul 5, 2009 | post #3)
I don't know if it really matters that they were starters but I do believe we have some talent returning and just as important we have coaches that know what playing good defense is about. http://www.bringon thecats.com/sectio n/kansas-state-foo tball Snyder and staff may not win them all but they're defense will not lay down like they did under Tibesar/Prince. I can't wait to see Kansas State get back to playing defense like we did in Snyders first stint. (Jul 5, 2009 | post #2)
We will find out what kind of team we have when we head out to CA to play UCLA in the Rose Bowl. I think Kansas State is going to win this one and send a statement that things are back on track starting in 2009. (Jun 28, 2009 | post #1)
Good article. I believe the answer is... YES. (Jun 28, 2009 | post #1)
That's what they thought when they strolled into Boulder CO last year too. (Oct 22, 2008 | post #2)
Sorry, I copied and pasted the same thing twice (distracted at work) from gopowercat.com but I think you get my point. (Aug 7, 2008 | post #19)
There were some decent players inherited when Prince took over but it wasn't anything to write home to Mom about. While 14 current seniors made at least one start last season, Prince continues to take steps with some unsightly knowledge at hand. Research indicates that of the 26-member scholarship post-Big 12 championship recruiting class in 2004, only seven tight end Brett Alstatt, safety Cedric Wilson, defensive end Vlad Faustin, place-kicker Jared Parker, and offensive linemen Jordan Bedore, Brad Rooker and Gerard Spexarth remained on the 2008 roster prior to training camp. Only four others in the 2004 class wide receiver Yamon Figurs, defensive end Tearrius George, and defensive backs Maurice Porter and Kyle Williams completed their eligibility at K-State.

than any football -TEAM- in shoocl history. Whoops (Aug 6, 2008 | post #16)
He also has Kansas State more academically on track than any football in school history. In 2007-08 the football program placed a total of 74 student-athletes on the Big 12 Commissioners Honor Roll, including a record number 38 in the spring. K-States football program was also recently recognized by Diverse magazine as at it ranked 10th nationally among all Division I football programs, and was the lone Big 12 institution in the top 10, with a 77.2-percent graduation rate among African-American student-athletes. Boy, Prince's really doing horrible huh? (Aug 6, 2008 | post #15)
Also... Ron Prince is just the second Wildcat head coach in school history to win seven games during his inaugural season and the first to take his team to a postseason bowl, Prince became only the sixth Big 12 head coach (out of 19 to be hired since the leagues initial season in 1996) in conference history to guide his program to a bowl berth in a debut campaign. Making the accomplishment even more noteworthy is the fact that just four of the six Big 12 head coaches to earn bowl bids in year one took over programs coming off losing seasons, including Texas Mack Brown in 1998, Colorados Gary Barnett in 1999, Oklahomas Bob Stoops in 1999 and now Prince. He is currently the fourth-youngest NCAA Division I-A head coach in the country and one of just six African-American head coaches in all of Division I-A and has rare NFL exerience because he served NFL Minority Fellowships with the Jacksonville Jaguars (1996), Washington Redskins (1997), Atlanta Falcons (1999) and New York Giants (2000). He deserves the chance to prove himself and I'm sorry but 2 seasons doesn't cut it as a chance. (Aug 1, 2008 | post #14)
Kansas State will field a very mature team on August 30th. This is just Ron Princes 3rd year so you might want to relax a bit fellas. If we go to a bowl this year (I'm almost sure we will) that will be 2 bowls in three years. Not to shabby playing in a Big XII that had 4 teams who finished 2007 in the BCS top 10 teams (after all bowls were played). That's more than any conference... including the SEC. Prince has recorded the second-most wins in school history for a head coach in his first two seasons on the job and has also led the Wildcats to wins in consecutive seasons over Texas, including last seasons 41-21 whooping in Austin that was Kansas States first-EVER win on the road against a Top 10 opponent.

Umm... I think you're a little confused Rob. In 2003 we went 11-4 and won the Big XII Championship... not 6-6? http://www.kstates ports.com/SportSel ect.dbml?SPSID=306 1&SPID=212 &DB_OEM_ID=400 &KEY=&Q_SE ASON=2003 I would hardly say they got "destroyed " by "The" Ohio St. either. They had a dismal first half (much of which wasn't played with Roberson) and then came back and made things very interesting towards the end of the game. Ron Prince didn't exactly have a mountain of talent to work with when he took over and you are wrong (again) about the ranking his recruiting classes. http://kansasstate .rivals.com/teamra nk.asp?Year=2008 &Page=2&Po sType=0&Sort=0 http://kansasstate .rivals.com/teamra nk.asp?Year=2007 &Page=2&Ty pe=0&Sort=0 You might want to check your "facts" before you go bashing someone. Get ready for the Kansas State Bandwagon. It starts around the beginning of October (Remember to act like you've on board all along). (Jul 24, 2008 | post #10)
