I have to disagree and dispute Jon Wefald on his statement that K-State was blessed by God when Bill Snyder became coach. K-State was really blessed by God when Jon Wefald became president of the university.

I was at a swim meet in Wichita with my daughter the Sunday morning that the Wichita Eagle wrote a story about Jon Wefald being hired as KSU’s next president.

I jumped up and down for joy and thanked God that Sunday in church for sending us Jon Wefald. Bill Snyder just happened to be one of the many angels that Jon Wefald brought on board to save our beloved university.

Think Pat Bosco was already there, but he was one of many that Wefald surrounded himself with that put KSU on the map. You deserve all the credit for being the captain of that ship.
