Snyder expects Longhorn upgrade

Texas didnt make many obvious defensive adjustments against Mississippi with the return of Greg Robinson as the teams defensive coordinator. Robinson took over for Manny Diaz, who was reassigned after Texas lost to BYU.
K-State coach Bill Snyder said he expects to see significant changes and improvement from the Longhorns before they face the Wildcats on Saturday night in Austin.
Greg is a very fine football coach, Snyder said Tuesday. He had a maybe not so good experience at Michgan, but he wasnt running his defense at Michigan. He was running somebody elses. I think it was tough this past week for Greg, because he wasnt totally invested in the terminology that goes with it. That made it difficult for him to call the game like he likes to. Now that he has had this period of time to invest in himself and understand all the terminology I think you will see improvement just because of that.
• K-State quarterback Jake Waters threw four interceptions as a sophomore at Iowa Western Community College. He has thrown five after three games with the Wildcats.
When asked about those mistakes, Snyder said Waters has occasionally made mistakes in his presnap reads. Snyder expects that to improve in time.
I think he has played well with the exception of five interceptions, he said.
• Kansas State basketball is bringing back its Madness in Manhattan event to celebrate the start of the season. It will take place at 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 25 at Bramlage Coliseum. The event is free, and doors open at 8 p.m.
Both the mens and womens teams will scrimmage. There will also be a dunk contest, skill competitions, and banners celebrating the history of K-State basketball will be unveiled.
