Bill Is Leaving The Bill: The End Of Snyder Football

Bill Is Leaving The Bill: The End Of Snyder Football

After 27 seasons of hard work and commitment, Snyder steps down from his head coach position.


Over the weekend, Manhattan was hit with the biggest punch. Bill Snyder retired. Snyder is the nationally recognized symbol of the Little Apple. Our humble college community and our football team both have been impacted by Bill Snyder in a plethora of ways. In his 27 seasons at the helm of K-State football, he has led them to a 215-117-1 record. In Big 12 conference play he has amassed 128 wins against only 89 losses. He has won two conference titles.

All these numbers to say: Bill Snyder is a miracle worker.

When he accepted the position as head coach, the program was notorious for being the only team in the nation with 500 losses. Wildcat football was amidst a 27-game losing streak and went to a bowl game once within 77 years. The team had He took a team that was poorly organized and made them a name to compete against. They call the turnaround the Manhattan Miracle. Snyder reshaped the stigmas surrounding wildcat football.

For that, the city of Manhattan is ever grateful.

Now, we lie in wait to see what comes next. Even his players don't know what this means for them exactly. Jahron McPherson, a redshirt sophomore defensive back said, "I already knew but I can't really believe he's leaving. Playing for him was taxing. He complained about everything we did. Everything was so hard, and he never acknowledges what we did. But he made us better. I'll miss being coached by a legend." Bronson Massie, a sophomore defensive end, also commented about Snyder's retirement. "He's old. So, everything was old school. We had a lot of old-time traditions. But we are all ready for something new. Alex Delton already signed his release. I'll find out when you do who all leaves and who stays. But he made this place. So K-State won't be the same without him."

Gene Taylor, the athletic director at K-State, said they have already begun the hunt for Snyder's replacement. Taylor also mentioned that Snyder would be given the position of Special Ambassador. He would continue to assist in the growth of K-State however necessary for the time being.

I'm An 18-Year-Old Female And I Will Never Be A Feminist

Honestly, I'd rather be caught dead than caught calling myself a modern-day feminist.

"A man told me to have a good day... I'm triggered." How ludicrous does that sound? Tune in because that is the extent of modern day feminism.

Sure, I think boys are stupid and that I'm probably better than 90% of the male population, but that doesn't make me a modern-day feminist. Now I believe that woman should stand up for themselves, and Golding's quote: "I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men, they are far superior and always have been," is by far one of my favorite quotes... but modern day feminism is not something I want to be associated with.

I'm all for "anything you can do I can do better," and "We can do it!" but realistically speaking in some situations, that isn't feasible. As an 18-year-old woman who works out regularly, and is stronger than the average female, I couldn't carry a 190-pound man back to a safe zone after he was shot on the front line of a war even if I tried. It is not anatomically possible for a grown woman to be as strong as a fully developed male.

Reality check: Men and women are not equal.

They are not physically equal, they are not mentally equal. Modern-day feminism is equality between the two genders, but corrupt and on steroids. I support what feminism used to be. I support women who work hard and have goals and ambition... not girls who hate men and stomp around with no shirts on to piss off the public. Feminism has developed into a polluted teaching that young men and women are plunging into.

We are built dissimilarly.

The human brain is literally an organ that is sex oriented. There is a cognitive difference, that singlehandedly destroys gender equality.

I will not spend my time running a revolution against anyone who likes Donald Trump. I am not going to binge watch Trump's twitter in an effort to start some leftist gob of drama. I refuse to be part of this head hunt to attack all Republicans on the newest Instagram post made about how feminism is stupid. I do not hate men, and society would crash and burn without the successful men and women who work together to create what we call the United States of America.

Why, you ask? Why are the 15-25 year olds of our society clinging to feminism? They are hopping on the rapidly growing bandwagon where all the hipsters, feminists and Trump haters reside. It's "cool" to hate Donald Trump. Twitter is a world of liberalism, hatred and fake love towards all. Social media is where this generation is living — and modern-day feminism brews there.

We need to keep separation in the household within roles.

We must raise our children to do what they are best at rather than trying to do something they are incapable of just to prove an irrelevant point.

Women must stand up for what they believe in and be strong in their shoes, while not getting so caught up in what your modern day feminist says she thinks is right.

We cannot let this briskly changing society sway us away from what is going to keep the world working precisely.

5 Things That Can Be Fixed Rather Than Paying For Trump's Border Wall

Trump's government shutdown results in $5 billion being misused.


$5 billion is a crazy, large amount of money that is needed to build an unnecessary wall. Instead, a portion of that money could be used to help border security while also helping other flaws that exist in America due to lack of funding. There are so many other useful areas that this money can help and irrevocably change.

1. Clean Drinking Water for Flint Michigan

It's January 2019 and Flint, Michigan still doesn't have safe drinking water. The government is neglecting a plethora of American children while trying to put a focus on a less hazardous situation, which frankly shows that they don't care.

2. Provide Health Care for Thousands of United States Citizens

So many citizens in the United States are unable to pay for their own or their children's healthcare and instead avoid going to the doctors. The Trump Administration has only made their situation more difficult.

3. Better Our Education System

$5 billion could provide so much for our education system, especially schools in areas of lower socioeconomic status.

4. Give to the Environmental Protection Agency

The Trump Administration has severely neglected the effects that climate change has had on this Earth. $5 billion could better our chances at helping this issue and ensuring a safer and longer-lasting planet for everyone.

5. Give to Citizenship and Immigration Services

By aiding the US Citizenship and Immigration Services, we could be helping people get into the United States in a legal and safer manner rather than tear-gassing them at the border.
