Bill being Bill

That wacky Bill Snyder… He’s at it again.

Secretive as ever, the Kansas State coach bristled yesterday when asked what defense K-State is going to run – several recruits have noted it’s a 4-2-5 – and all he has spilled about the offense is that it will be “broad-based.”

Yep, this is going to be fun.

He took it a step further, though, when asked about the running back situation. Snyder suggested if the season started today – it doesn’t – Keithen Valentine would be the starter.

But then he said Logan Dold would probably be No. 2.

Which sounds fine, given all Dold did last year for the Wildcats. But a source told me that Dold has been shifted to safety, where the depth at the so-called “Wildcat” spot, the fifth defensive back that is almost another linebacker, is somewhat thin at the moment.

To paraphrase Ron Prince, that’s what I was told.
