5. The special teams unit is in good hands with Sean Snyder

There’s not much to say here besides the fact that I’ve been ecstatic with the special teams unit. No muffed punt returns, no missed field goals, and just one kick away in the first two games.

K-State legend Bill Snyder’s son, Sean, has a big part in it. Kansas hired him in April, and he is one of the best special teams coordinators in the country. It’s safe to say that they are in good hands with him.
