Politicians are known to make promises they cannot keep, this is no surprise. Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder has also become a bit of an ageless wonder in college football, but even he would tell you his time will come to step away from the sport of college football. Just do not tell that to Kansas governor Sam Brownback, who jokingly promised another 20 years of Snyder leading Kansas State on the sidelines.
“We’re going to be able to keep Bill Snyder for another 20 years,” Gov. Brownback told an audience of oil producers at the Kansas Independent Oil and Gas Association convention, per The Wichita Eagle. “We got it figured out.”
Brownback’s comment came during a discussion on stem cell research. The comment drew a good amount of laughter, reportedly. this time, at least, there were no suggestions Snyder was into any acts of sorcery, as Washington State head coach Mike Leach once suggested in a Reddit Q&A (or AMA, for the Reddit-literate). Maybe Snyder would not need any help from stem cells if he were indeed a sorcerer.
