Kansas Governor: Stem cells could guarantee 20 more years of Bill Snyder

Big 12 Football Media Days

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.

    I hope they do keep Snyder for another 20 years. The man is a credit to his profession. All coaches could learn a lesson or two from him.

    “Stem cells could guarantee 20 more years of Bill Snyder”


    And cloning technology could guarantee 80 more years of Bill Snyder.

    Don’t tell that to the christians. “It’s not god’s plan” pffffff what a crock!

    Cloning is no good. Cloning is a mere physical copy of a preexisting template. It’s not Bill Snyder’s physical form that Kansas St. wants to retain. You need to keep him around.

    Based on my extensive sci-fi entertainment research, it appears that Kansas St. needs to:

    1. Store His consciousness in a computer;

    2. Store His brain in a glass jar and give him a robot body;

    3. Find a sports loving Vulcan to mind meld with Him;

    4. Find the fountain of youth and give it to Him and Buzz Aldrin; or

    5. Convince Him to use some of his magic on himself rather than use all his powers on team.

    Besides, how can you trust a clone. Oh, and when you get to a clone of a clone, you are looking at a mess. I bet some of you are too young to remember a xerox copy of a xerox copy.

    Yes I through in Mr. Aldrin in out if nowhere., and it wasn’t a mistake.

    The Kansas governor sounds kookier that Maine’s governor (“Maine will boycott the NFL” guy).

    Notice there was no mention of keeping Charlie Weis another 20 years……..
