Gold & Blue Lunch: Snyder keeps mum on retirement until after season

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — It’s “Wizard Watch 2015” … will he or won’t he retire? He is the very model of the modern major venerable, and Bill Snyder seems unbothered with being 76 and more concerned with his team becoming 6-6, which it can Saturday with a mild upset of West Virginia.

A .500 finish would grant the Wildcats legit postseason access, though even 5-7 would suffice given the current dearth of bowl-eligible teams. With singular focus on chopping wood before the season finale, Snyder isn’t entertaining hypotheticals on retirement or his team riding an APR into the Liberty Bowl.

But in the event he does hang up the windbreaker after this, his 24th season at K-State, The Lunch is taking a moment to appreciate the man, who stands 19th on the all-time major-college wins lists, only one behind Nick Saban.
