MANHATTAN, Kan. — The average person wouldn't be overjoyed to awake on a Sunday morning, on their birthday no less, and head to the office to get started on another grueling work week.

Bill Snyder is not, by any stretch, considered an average person.

He's the guy who eats once a day, so precious is his time. The guy who built Kansas State into a national powerhouse from almost nothing. The guy who turned 73 on Sunday, one day after beating rival Kansas 56-16 to remain undefeated, and had very clear plans on celebrating his birthday.

He would be in his office, working away.

The Wildcats moved up to No. 6 in the AP poll Sunday, and Snyder knows there are increasingly important games still to come, starting at Iowa State next Saturday.
