To the editor:
As a KU graduate and football season ticket holder, I believe KU owes K-State and the NCAA a huge apology for their use of the speaker system during play at their recent game. Whoever the person is that decided blaring music during KU kickoffs was the answer to the student section's chant is sadly mistaken. That was in my opinion much more childish, obnoxious and uncalled for than 5 to 10 seconds of a chant that contains one swear word. The music is way too loud during pregame warm-ups in itself without having to also try to endure it during actual game plays. I believe it was also rude to use the same to drown out the K-state band, which took time and expense to attend the game.
It might not be against NCAA rules, but I do know it has always been an unofficial rule of etiquette that there is no playing of any kind of disruption during actual plays, either in football or basketball. Our former basketball coach liked to say KU fans just sit on their hands and do nothing. At least the students are attending games and showing some spirit. I guess the people that suggested KU kick out the ones that yell the chant would rather see the whole east side of the stadium empty? Let the students enjoy themselves for a couple of hours on Saturday.
