It happened in August, when longtime Kansas State football coach Bill Snyder observed the money-soaked atmosphere that surrounds the game and basically declared the college game to be toast. “I think we’ve sold out,” said Snyder, who, it should be added, will make more than $2.7 million this season. “The concept of college football no longer has any bearing on the quality of the person, the quality of students.” “It’s no longer about education,” Snyder continued. “We’ve sold out to the cameras over there, and TV has made its way, and I don’t fault TV. I don’t fault whoever broadcasts games. They have to make a living and that’s what they do, but athletics—that’s it. It’s sold out.”
