MANHATTAN, Kan. (KSNT) – Kansas State University’s Bill Snyder Family Stadium was the subject of recent criticism in a Sports Illustrated article.

The stadium received a poor critique from the sports magazine in an online article released on Tuesday, Sept. 13. The article ranked stadiums across the country as either a “gem” or a “dump.” The Bill Snyder Family Stadium received the latter rank:

DUMP: Bill Snyder Family Stadium, Kansas State (33). It’s in the Little Apple, which is a bad place to start. And the castle-like structure added on to one side only reinforces the fact that the rest of the stadium is quite ordinary.

K-State Athletics, in response to the poor rank, put out a video via Twitter stating the opposite:
