Make your jokes — we have. Call him old. Say he looks like the Crypt Keeper. Bill Snyder doesn't care. He's untouchable in Manhattan, Kansas. Snyder mopped up the mess left by Ron Prince and restored purple pride to Bill Snyder Family Stadium. He didn't waste time after his three-year absence. Last season, Snyder's 'Cats rolled to a 10-2 record (with losses to Oklahoma and Oklahoma State) and an appearance in the Cotton Bowl against Arkansas. His team played salty, smash-mouth football, and Snyder returned swagger and tradition to EMAW nation. No laughing matter, indeed.
