The most recent dozen games of the Kansas-Kansas State football rivalry supply more evidence of the genius of Bill Snyder as football coach.

Over that stretch of games, Kansas State has a 9-0 record in games coached by Bill Snyder, an 0-3 record with Ron Prince coaching the Wildcats.

In his second tenure with Kansas State, Snyder is 8-0 vs. KU and has won by an average margin of 30.25 points.

Snyder has a 21-4 record against Kansas and has a winning record against each of the seven Jayhawks head coaches he has faced. The breakdown: 5-3 vs. Glen Mason, 5-0 against Terry Allen, 4-1 vs. Mark Mangino, 2-0 against Turner Gill, 2-0 vs. Charlie Weis, 1-0 against Clint Bowen and 2-0 vs. David Beaty.

Snyder's record grows even more impressive when you consider that he lost three times to Kansas in his first four seasons. So Snyder has won 20 of his past 21 games vs. Kansas, the lone loss coming in 2004 by a 31-28 score.

The Wildcats have scored 50 or more points eight times in the past 19 games Snyder has coached against Kansas.

Before the year started, I thought this would be Snyder's last year. Just how it felt with the team he has coming in and his health problems this past offseason. Now, with them underperforming and not living up to their preseason expectations, I'm curious if he sticks around another year or two to go out on a better note. Season isn't over so we'll see. I respect him and what he has accomplished, but I definitely will not be sad to see him go.

Mark Mangino: K-State beat us 64-0 in 2002.

David Beaty: Hold my beer.............
