Old Home Town - 25 years ago

October 25, 2007

Kansas University Chancellor Gene Budig received a letter of apology from Kansas State president Jon Wefald for the recent behavior of some KSU fans toward KU band members following the KU-KSU football game in Manhattan. KSU won 36-7, and KU band members had been jostled and pelted with debris in the aftermath.

From what I understand, KSU fans were also prone to throwing things at their own band in those days.

I also remember a time during pregame run-on when a fellow band member and friend of mine gave a KSU fan a shove down the steps because the fan grabbed a hold of another band member in an attempt to tear off a piece of her uniform. This was at a KU home game, where sometimes you had to be careful during run-in if you were running out of "enemy territory" in the north bowl.

Ah, memories.
