We're starting off our Big 12 preview today with Kansas State, our pick for cellar dwellar in the Big 12 North this year.
Back in the day, I think Bill Snyder did the single best coaching job ever by breathing life into the Wildcat football program. However, the coaching staff of Leavitt, Mangino, Venables and Stoops is gone. Josh Freeman is gone. Snyder has his customary mix of juco transfers to close the gap, but I see too much turmoil in the program, and Ron Prince just wasn’t a good hire (note to self: don't hire an offensive coordinator as a head coach if his last three teams have decreased production from the prior year). I see the Wildcats as 3-9 this year, with wins against UMass, Louisiana-Lafayette and Tennessee Tech. They might suit this guy up.
