If one was to name the most successful baseball coaches in Kansas State history, it's likely the name of current coach Brad Hill would be mentioned, or perhaps Bob Brasher, who skippered the Wildcats in the 1960s and early-1970s, or perhaps Mike Clark, who had a 17-year run as coach of the Purples.

With the announcement of the new Vanier Football Complex and the North End Zone Project during K-State's spring game on Saturday afternoon, Wildcat fans had the opportunity to look forward into the future of K-State football.

Yesterday afternoon, football was back in Bill Snyder Family Stadium. 

Letter from A.D. John Currie - April 26

Wildcat Nation,

Thanks to your commitment to K-State, we have taken incredible steps towards our vision of a Model Intercollegiate Athletics Program and our goal of providing a World-Class Student-Athlete Experience including completing about $125 million in athletic facility upgrades benefitting all 16 of our sports over the last 24 months.

Every member of the K-State Nation should feel the pride of these improvements and the fact that they have been achieved in a fiscally responsible manner. But we still have work left to do.

You have heard me say before that my two favorite of Coach Snyder's 16 goals are #3 - UNITY and #12 - NO SELF LIMITATIONS. Look what the K-State Nation has accomplished over the past several years by indeed being committed to these principles!

Coach Snyder and his staff have done an extraordinary job of rebuilding our football program over the past five years. Our fans have stepped up too, with the best attendance in our history, highlighted by a current streak of 13 consecutive sell-outs at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. However, we all know that in any competitive environment you are either getting better or getting worse. There really is no standing still and treading water. We have to capture the momentum you have helped create and continue to strengthen the foundation of our program. Phase III of the Bill Snyder Family Stadium Master Plan - a new Vanier Football Complex and North Stadium expansion - is our next major priority, and earlier at today's annual spring football game we announced details in regards to the project. Click here for full project details which include renderings and videos of the project.

Bobby Randall laughs when he says that the only time he was a big man on campus might have been when at the little community of Gove.
