KSU's Snyder sends note to OK State kicker

  Bill Snyder was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame earlier this year.

Yet again, Kansas State coach Bill Snyder showed us he's one of the most respectful and sportsmanlike figures in college football.

His Wildcats were handed the first loss of their season last Saturday in dramatic fashion, when Oklahoma State kicker Ben Grogan kicked a game-winning field goal to give the Cowboys a 36-34 win in the final minute.

On Friday, Grogan posted the following handwritten note from Snyder on Twitter.

It reads:

Congratulations Ben. I admire the courage you displayed in hitting the game winning FG. That took great focus & discipline on your part. Wishing you continued success

Coach Snyder

Classy move, coach.
