I wouldn't go that far...During the Bill Mallory days in the 80's and early 90's when he wrapped up they went to I believe 6 bowl games in 8 years and twice went into the final two games of the season with a chance to go to the Rose Bowl. No juggernaut by any means but very respectable especially considering the Big Ten was a very tough conference. KState ran off a few more bowls but managed to get their backsides kicked in most of them and sold out any ethical and academic standards they might have had to build with mercenaries that were anything but a student athlete.
Other than Snyder's run with hired hit men KState brings nothing to the table. Stunk forever leading up to that. Not competitive in any other major sports. Only thing KState ever did of note outside of Snyder's run was knock off the #1 seed Purdue team with Mitchy Richmond. I will always appreciate that but lets be real. If Snyder had any standards at all KState would be the most pathetic mens athletic program of any BCS school with the exception of maybe Rutgers. The little rotten apple is most likely headed back to that status.
