Boulder Blocks out K-State Colorado Scales Down Wildcat Ambitions 12-0


Vahe Gregorian Of The Post-Dispatch, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


Earlier this week, Kansas State football coach Bill Snyder pondered the implications of Saturday's game between his ninth-ranked Wildcats and No. 6 Colorado. He surmised thusly:

"It's a defining game," he said, "although I can't tell you what it defines."

Well, this: As astounding as Snyder's resurrection of K-State (3-40-1 in four years before his arrival) was and continues to be . . . as routinely as the Wildcats now browbeat and plunder the vulnerable likes of Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma State and Iowa State (17-1 against the group since 1993) . . . Kansas State remains a plateau below the elite, marquee programs in the nation. With Saturday's 12-0 loss to the Buffaloes in the snow-dusted, 16-degree confines of Folsom Field, the Wildcats squandered their latest bid to proclaim equality with the Big 12 Conference's irresistible forces: two-time defending national champion Nebraska and Colorado. "Obviously, it was a gut-check type contest," said Colorado coach Rick Neuheisel, who compared the "atrocious" conditions to a skating rink. "It really became a battle of wills." And won'ts. Snyder now is 0-15-1 against Nebraska and Colorado - "It's not hard to be reminded of that," he says. K-State last defeated the 'Huskers in 1968 and last overcame Colorado in 1984. The defeat leaves the Wildcats 8-0 against the more mortal rest of their schedule but 8-2 overall - and dashed the slim remaining prospects they had of competing in next month's Big 12 Championship game at the Trans World Dome. Moreover, K-State now is likely headed to a Cotton Bowl berth rather than one of the six coveted Bowl Alliance spots - each carrying a minimum $8.5 million payoff. "Obviously, we were not very productive," Snyder said, referring directly to his offense but effectively to the game. Privately, officials of the Bowl Alliance (Sugar, Fiesta and Orange bowls) probably celebrated, or at least exhaled over, the news. …
