Bill Snyder sounds off after season opening loss to North Dakota State

MANHATTAN, Kan. - Kansas State University head coach Bill Snyder was not a happy camper after witnessing the stunning loss to North Dakota State.

The Bison knocked off the defending Big 12 champions Friday night, 24-21.

This is Snyder's first loss to a sub-division opponent since 1989. Before the post-game press conference officially started, Snyder had a few words for the media.

"Now will you believe me when I say we're not very good? That's what I've been trying to tell you", Snyder said.

The legendary coach went on to voice some of his concerns he had with his football team, on an emotional level.

"I would like to see a whole bunch of mad guys in all honesty. I did not see any. That is concerning, that is for sure," he said. "They are certainly disappointed, and they are hurt. I think they knew it was going to be a difficult ballgame, and North Dakota State was extremely talented and a fine football team that plays extremely hard and would not give in."

Kansas State is now 0-1 for the 2013 season. They were picked to finish sixth in the Big 12 conference this year.

The Wildcats will have a shot to redeem themselves on Saturday, Sept. 7 against Louisiana-Lafayette.
