Bill Snyder: Kansas’ struggles not close to Kansas State’s past

The Kansas Jayhawks’ football struggles in recent years are well-documented.

They’ve won a total of 3 games since the start of 2015. They didn’t win a single game that year. Just last week, they were shutout on national television by TCU and had a historically low 21 yards of offense. 

But it can always be worse. And nobody knows that better than the Jayhawks’ rivals’ head coach.

Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder opined on the state of Kansas football this week. As Kellis Robinett of the Wichita Eagle reported, Snyder wants Jayhawks fans to know that Kansas State feels their pain.

“I don’t know that there is any program that has been or will be in the situation that was at Kansas State at that particular time,” Snyder said. “Kansas has had some success in the past. They are not the losing-est program in the history of college football, and all that goes along with it.”

When Snyder took over the Wildcats job, Kansas State had lost more games than any program in the highest division of college football.

“They are going through some difficult times right now, but … They are not where we were,” Snyder said.

That may be true. But it might not be much comfort to Kansas fans.

Especially considering that they’ve lost 8 straight games to the Wildcats.
