BRISTOL, Conn. — Kansas State coach Bill Snyder says the legend of him eating one meal a day is true.
Snyder, 74, still works 18-hour days as he is about to begin his 23rd season as the Wildcats’ coach, and he refuses to take lunch breaks. He usually doesn’t eat until after he leaves the office.
“One meal a day is accurate,” Snyder said Wednesday, during an interview at ESPN. “It’s not always Taco Bell. I like Taco Bell.”
Snyder said Taco Bell is sometimes his only option because he returns home so late.
“Taco Bell is open at midnight,” Snyder said. “[My wife's cooking] is not.”
Absolute psychopath move. No other way to put it. I mean yeah, this is some funny little quirk about an eccentric guy who by all accounts is pretty much the man, but at the same time it’s kind of disturbing right? Like would you really trust your son to go play for a guy who doesn’t eat food all day then just crushes a Taco Bell burrito at midnight? A 74 year old man who only eats food made specifically for hammered drunk 20 something year olds? Such a weirdo. Hey Snyder you’re not POTUS bro. You’re the football coach at Kansas State. Put the play sheets down and step out and grab a turkey sandwich for 30 minutes.
