I'm very proud of my alma mater and our sports teams - through thick and thin, good and bad; I bleed purple. But tonight is an especially wondeful night to be a KSU alumna - we just knocked off #1 ranked Texas 71-69. We haven't beat a #1 ranked team since 1994 (Kansas) - damn it feels good to be a Wildcat!
Frank Martin will probably make the whole team run sprints and shoot free throws for the entire practice tomorrow, it doesn't matter because tonight all Wildcats can hold their heads up high! And even though Luis Colon is the clumsiest player I've ever seen and Denis Clemente only scored 5 points, thanks to the "the greatest fans in the world" (quote from Frank Martin) KSU pulled through in the Octagon of Doom (Bramlage Coliseum) for a big W.
So K-State fans, raise your glasses and be proud, be purple, Go State!
All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Native Kansan with a passion for K-State, agriculture, rodeo and free speech. Two-time K-State alumna with a background in animal science and livestock production combined with a tremendous love for writing and communicating. I find joy in the simple things: college sports, hot chocolate, ‘me time’ and a close circle of family and friends. You’ll find an odd assortment of agriculture, rodeo, K-State, home decorating, cooking, clothing and married life on this blog. Good luck finding order in this chaos.
