Uh? Oh wait, you mean there's another school in Kansas?

No. There's only one school in Kansas. The Kansas State University. The first land grant university created under the Morrill Act during the civil war. The oldest of the D1 Universities in Kansas. Home of the Landon Lecture given by most US presidents and dignitaries in recent history. KSU is second in the nation at producing Rhodes Scholars despite being among the smallest D1 state schools in the nation.
We have the smallest athletic budget in the Big 12 and one of the smallest among BCS schools, but we've produced four Final Fours, nine Elite Eights, and 36 All Americans.
After being named Futility U by Sports Illustrated, and the worst college football team of all time, Kansas State has become a formidable football team. As head coach Bill Snyder has amassed a record of 162-83-1. That doesn't sound great until you consider that he took over a team with about 50 scholarship players who had lost every game for several seasons.

We are a small school who competes well.

Notre Dame and Kansas State have two common opponents this year. Miami, who Kansas State dismantled 52-13, and Oklahoma, who Kansas State beat 24-19, becoming the first ranked team to defeat Bob Stoops in Norman.

This is shaping up to be a fun season. The resurgence of ND football and the topsy turvy upsets in several major conference make for some interesting races.
