  1. While Brent Venables is the top name on many K-State fans’ wish lists, North Texas coach Seth Littrell has arguably been the most rumored replacement for Bill Snyder Why Seth Littrell? Littrell is one of the hottest names among mid-major coaches right now. He’s been mentioned either seriously or in passing for every open head coaching job this offseason. As Bill Connelly wrote in his North Texas preview before this season: But why is he so coveted? Littrell inherited the North Texas coaching job from former Iowa State coach Dan McCarney. McCarney had led the oft-hapless Mea
  2. Many thought something would be announced by Wednesday, when Taylor said he hoped to meet with Snyder and discuss his future. Instead, fans are still nervously checking their phones for updates. Taylor did not return a message seeking comment for this story, and the only statements Snyder has made have been one-liners to reporters camped outside K-State’s football complex. The waiting game has gone on long enough that one news outlet inadvertently posted a pre-written story announcing Snyder’s retirement and quickly took it down. And for North Texas athletic director Wren Baker to take to

  4. Wow, I just may have a new favorite bowl scenario... K-State would bring a TON of fans to this game...BTW this was updated just tonight. http://www.sportingnews.com/ncaa-football/news/college-football-bowl-predictions-week-14-auburn-clemson-oklahoma-wisconsin-alabama-ohio-state/74aojjwfjgr61ue3lwvh12e2k

  6. If only Kansas State could play Miami every week. Just a week removed from scoring at will in the rout over the Hurricanes, offense suddenly became difficult for the Wildcats on Saturday, needing just about every break to come away with a 35-21 victory over North Texas at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. "If you don't prepare yourself well, about anything can happen," K-State coach Bill Snyder said. "And we weren't prepared well…There probably isn't anything we don't need vast improvement on — and that's on both sides of the ball." The 15th-ranked Wildcats improved to 3-0 to close out noncon
  7. I was going to post some thoughts on UNT’s loss to Kansas State last night, but stayed in the one hotel left on the planet without wireless. UNT really did turn out a remarkable performance. The Mean Green hung with one of the top teams in the country until the Wildcats superior talent took over. UNT’s offensive line is everything it was billed to be heading into the season. The Mean Green’s top two running backs — Brandin Byrd and Antoinne Jimmerson — picked up 129 yards between them. Derek Thompson had his best night throwing the ball since last season, connecting on a remarkable
  8. 9/16/2012 By ARNE GREEN Salina Journal MANHATTAN - The lights were on, but Bill Snyder had a sinking feeling nobody was home. Whether his Kansas State Wildcats were gazing south toward Norman, Okla., or simply looking past North Texas, the signs were ominous. "I hated playing this one at night because it's been on my mind very definitely for a long time and certainly was all during the course of the day," Snyder said after the No. 15-ranked Wildcats stuttered and sputtered for more than a half Saturday before pulling away to a 35-21 victory at sold-out Snyder Family Stadium. "I neve
  9. MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - North Texas almost beat No. 15 Kansas State at its own game Saturday night. Using a ball-control offense devised by former Iowa State coach Dan McCarney - no stranger to matching wits with Kansas State's Bill Snyder - the Mean Green managed to keep Collin Klein, John Hubert and the rest of the Wildcats' potent offense standing on the sideline most of the night. It wasn't until Klein and Hubert scored on late touchdown runs that Kansas State finally squeezed out a 35-21 victory Saturday night. "It goes right back to your offensive line,'' McCarney said. "If you c
  10. I'm just an alum and fan -- but I felt something tonight that I haven't felt in the entire time I have been following this program which dates back to 1988.... You can't expect to go into a hostile environment like #15 K-State and expect to be able to make mistakes or get any calls in your favor. That said, I can honestly say after tonight - I feel better than I have since I can possibly remember (including 2002 when QB Andrew Smith was alive and we had won a bowl game against Cincy). We performed well against the #15 team in the country tonight. In fact, I would argue we won the lin
  11. Kansas State, ranked No. 15 in the nation, isn't taking the Mean Green of North Texas lightly, even with a showdown with 5th-ranked Oklahoma on deck. How could they? Wildcats coach Bill Snyder has his fingerprints all over the program. He coached under Hayden Fry at North Texas from 1976-78, and got his first win with K-State (and his career) over the Mean Green in 1982. Then there's the last meeting between the teams in 2010. The Wildcats won a wild 49-41 decision in Denton, Texas. K-State (3-0) will host North Texas (2-1) at 6 p.m. CT Saturday and are 28.5 point favorites. While Lou
  12. “Coach Fry did such a good job of unifying the staff and keeping us humble, we were always on edge and I don’t mean that in a disrespectful way at all,” McCarney said. “It was an around-the-clock job, and you never felt like the work was quite done. “Bill was immensely organized and he had such a tremendous attention to detail. In the 10 years we spent coaching together, every last night Bill was the last one out of the office. He was always looking for another idea that might help us win, and he never lost that work ethic. That’s why he’ll be remembered as one of the best to ever coach the
  13. North Texas hits the road again today in the face of long odds against a Kansas State team that, in the estimation of Mean Green coach Dan McCarney, is better than its ranking as the 15th best team in the nation. To compete -- and better yet prepare for a Sun Belt Conference schedule that begins next week -- the coach said, the Mean Green (1-1) will need to match the defensive intensity it displayed in a home-opening victory last week against Texas Southern and find a balance on offense that has remained elusive through the first two weeks of the season. While North Texas running backs B
  14. Kansas State last played North Texas on Nov. 27, 2010 – the final game at Fouts Field in Denton before the Mean Green moved across the interstate to $78 million Apogee Stadium. Here’s Kellis Robinett’s article from the Wildcats’ 49-41 shootout victory, a game notable for Daniel Thomas running for 269 yards and two touchdowns. Several current Wildcats played key roles in that game – safety Ty Zimmerman had one interception, wide receiver Chris Harper scored a touchdown on a 7-yard pass from Carson Coffman and Anthony Cantele handled all seven kickoffs for K-State. Collin Klein had five carri
  15. It’s a simple case of cause-and-effect for North Texas quarterback Derek Thompson once he enters Snyder Family Stadium on Saturday. If he can’t show he can throw the ball effectively against No. 15 Kansas State, the Wildcats will, undoubtedly, stack the box on defense. And that could mean trouble for the Mean Green, already four-touchdown underdogs. “I know (Kansas State defensive coordinator) Tom Hayes,” North Texas coach Dan McCarney said. “And he’ll be grinning out the side of his mouth if he sees our passing game isn’t working.” Through two games, the Mean Green’s passing attac
