I posted that more or less for your eyes only, it was just antagonistic enough that I didn’t want to be perceived as being an argumentative jerk. I do apologize for the harshness of its tone, however if I were sitting across a table from you sharing a beer I would have pretty much said the same thing, and hope you would not perceive it as mean spirited.
I get it but I think you are wrong insofar as calling Snyder a hypocrite.
You state: It is hypocritical to chastise a system of which you are an integral part.
WE THE PEOPLE of the United States of America are an integral part of our society and our government. Is it then hypocritical, of us as individuals, to criticize our society and government?
As far as high moral ground… I doubt you can find a D1/FBS coach with higher moral character. In 2003 when Roberson stepped into it in Scottsdale, Coach Snyder held him out of the first half of the Fiesta Bowl. Nick Saba, Urban Meyer or Jim Tressel would have probably started him and won the game.
Bryce Brown, good enough to play for the Philadelphia Eagles, NOT good enough (personal development) to play for Coach Snyder.
You and I will probably just not see eye to eye on this hypocrite deal, but I doubt there is no one more ethical or of higher moral character coaching in College Football, and for Snyder to say that he is grossly overpaid for what he does is a refreshing bit of truth that you aren’t going to here from anyone else in a D1/FBS Coaching position.
I also get your point about Million$$ being spent on his salary as opposed to funding Academic or other programs within the University. My counterpoint to that is…can you tell me how much the university has benefited financially (outside the athletic department) over Coach Snyder’s career at K State? My guess is, that it is more than his annual salary, no matter how large that might be.
