Kansas State’s monumental, 24-21, loss to defending FCS champion North Dakota State took place more than a week after the writing of this post, but the result still stings in the Little Apple.

Not for Wildcats coach Bill Snyder, however. While most big-time, millionaire men might stew over such an embarrassing defeat, Snyder couldn’t be more of the opposite. Always a class act, he actually took the time to personally write a congratulatory letter to Bison quarterback Brock Jensen. Jensen finished the game having completed 21-of-30 passes for 165 yards along with two touchdowns and one interception; not gaudy numbers by any means, but he engineered a drive that ate up more than eight minutes in the fourth quarter and would eventually provide the winning margin.

In doing so, Jensen impressed the man with a massive bronze statue outside the front entrance of the stadium.

If you can’t quite make out what Snyder wrote, we’ve got you covered.

Congratulations Brock. I was truly impressed with you & your teammates. You played so very well, virtually error free & with such poise. I wish you a great year & hope you achieve all you desire. Please share my thoughts w/ your teammates.

Warm regards,

Bill Snyder

Our favorite part? That easily has to be the fact that the man who bleeds KSU purple wrote this out with a purple pen.
