Snyder always cautious despite fan excitement

By Joshua Kinder

While anticipation continues to grow for the football season — evident by four sellouts already — Snyder continues to warn his players and coaches that nothing is guaranteed.

K-State, which has 17 returning starters, may be ranked No. 22 when it opens the season Saturday against Missouri State, but Snyder said every team is different and what last season’s Wildcats did means nothing this week.

“That’s one of those things I’ve attempted to caution so many people about, particularly our players and coaches,” Snyder said. “We take things like that for granted and that tends to come back and create problems for you over a period of time.

“It is really a concern for me. I’ve said this in the spring and every opportunity you’ve given me, that the dynamics — even though we have a certain number of returning starters — are different. Every year is a little bit different and that is certainly true with this group.”
