Campus Clicks: Snyder apologizes to Kansas State students, Arizona complains about late kickoffs
What a Class Act
Bill Snyder might be the classiest person in sports. The longtime Kansas State coach, who built the program from a pile of rubble into a perennial Big 12 contender, watched his team get throttled by Oklahoma, 55–0, one week after nearly upsetting TCU. He then wrote a letter to the student body apologizing for the performance. The letter comes a few days after Snyder wrote a congratulatory note to Horned Frogs' QB Trevone Boykin. They should rename the town of Manhattan after him.
Prior to Michigan State's miracle win, not many college football fans knew who Jalen Watts-Jackson was. Thanks to his fumble recovery and touchdown scamper, his name will be remembered by college football fans forever. Unfortunately, the redshirt freshman defensive back dislocated his hip on the play and is out for the season (he also said he'd re-injure his hip over again to beat Michigan).
Watts-Jackson posted the following message to Instagram on Monday morning:[instagram:https://instagram.com/p/9CDIX-q6mtNuXCywYFUoRBs1KIuqd3HktazLI0/]
Jemele Goes All-In
ESPN's Jemele Hill, a Michigan State alum, unleashed a furious rant against Michigan after the stunning finish on Saturday, saying the Spartans own the Wolverines and their fans don't deserve MSU's dignity and respect. Wow.

Past Their Bedtimes
Apparently Rich Rodriguez and Arizona have grown so tired of the late kickoff games that they filed a complaint with the Pac-12.
Here's an end zone angle of the Michigan State botched punt. It's oddly quiet and you can hear 100,000 Michigan fans groan multiple times in unison.
