Kansas State's Ron Prince
We'd be talking about the second-year coach anyway after he beat Texas for the second consecutive season, but his success always provides the opportunity to mention the travesty that there are just six black head coaches among the 119 top-level schools.
Kansas State Athletic Director Tim Weiser met the relatively little-known Prince at an NCAA forum for minority coaches, and last year, Prince beat the Longhorns when they were ranked fourth and finished 7-6 after a loss to Rutgers in the Texas Bowl.
This season, Kansas State is 3-1 and ranked 24th, their first appearance in the AP poll since the second week of the 2004 season.
