For almost the entire time up until the Feb. 6 signing day, Kansas State was never in linebacker Brandon Archer's recruiting picture. Until Jan. 10, when Coach Bill Snyder hired Bret Bielema as the Wildcats' co-defensive coordinator, using the University of Iowa pipeline to help replace three coaches who departed for Southern Methodist in December. And it didn't take long for Bielema, an Iowa graduate and assistant since 1993, to hit the recruiting trail as a Wildcat. Shortly after receiving the job in Manhattan, he made a phone call to St. Paul, Minn. It was to Archer.
