Bill Snyder remains one of the best coaches in the country and has been masterful in his second stint with the Wildcats. Kansas State has gone 29-10 the last three years and they are always a player in the Big 12 despite holding firm as a bit of a throwback, physical, run-first attack.
Solid senior signal caller Jake Waters and stud wideout Tyler Lockett return to guide the offense. And even though they have just 11 starters back that is actually more than they welcomed last season. Snyder always relies on a lot of transfer talent as well so this team always has a chance to be better than people expect.
However, I think that Kansas State enters the year as one of the more overrated teams in the league. They do open with four of their first five games at home. But one of those tilts is against defending SEC champion Auburn and the other is against Texas Tech. And from Oct. 18 to Nov. 8 they play one of the toughest four-game stretches in the nation, with road games at Oklahoma and TCU bracketing contests against Texas and Oklahoma State.
The Wildcats finished 8-5 last year. But they were worse than that mark suggests. They are always tough to beat in Manhattan. However, the teams coming to town this season have the sand to knock this Wildcats group around. I don't think this is a nine-win roster so I'll play 'under'.
