Bill Snyder has coached 24 seasons in two stints at Kansas State, so he's already in a category by himself. But did you that he's never asked for a raise? "I've never interviewed for a job [while at K-State]," Snyder said. "I've never shown an interest. It was all about people. I went to Kansas State because of the people. I stayed there because of the people. We remained in Manhattan, Kansas when I retired, and I came back because of the people."

The Big 12 set up trophies at media days this year, which is a new touch at the conference's annual event.

One interesting tidbit from Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby's press conference was his mention of creating divisions with "equity" ... in other words in relation to final records for teams. That could be an interesting way to split up the conference, particularly if the Big 12 decides to tweak the divisions on a yearly basis to separate the top teams while maintaining traditional rivalries.
