Bill Snyder rips nature of big-time college sports as Kansas State opens fall football camp

Bill Snyder ripped the big-time nature of college athletics as Kansas State opened fall camp Wednesday, lamenting the way universities have "sold out" in search of the almighty dollar.

During a lengthy oratory in which the 74-year-old coach discussed the upcoming season, Snyder argued that TV has assumed too much control of college sports; education has been relegated to a second thought; and that the entire endeavor "distorts" the values of young people.

Snyder voiced his thoughts one day before the NCAA board of directors is to vote on a proposal giving the five wealthiest college football conferences the ability to make rules and pass legislation without the approval of the rest of Division I schools.

The autonomy proposal is expected to pass.
