K StateAs the first year of my presidency unfolds, I continue to be even more impressed by the wonderful accomplishments of our students, faculty and staff. I hear daily about a student’s accomplishment or a faculty member’s significant research. What a pleasant surprise to discover our university is even better than I knew. This is why I decided to compete to become your president.

One surprise that has not been pleasant is hearing a vulgar chant at sporting events targeted at our in-state rival. It’s easy to see how one can get caught up in the moment. However, many of my friends across the nation reached out to me following last week’s men’s basketball game and expressed their dismay. The chant was clearly heard from coast to coast on national television. It was personally embarrassing and not what one expects from a world-class university.

The strength of the Wildcat family lies in passing our legacy from one generation to the next. K-Staters are known for doing the right thing. Whether our fans are 8, 18 or 80, they deserve the best fan experience in the Big 12. I think about those younger fans sitting in the stands or watching on television and know they represent our next generation. As we continue the spring competition season, let’s show them the Wildcat Way.

This poor fucking guy Richard Myers. One time chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Real power. Real responsibility. Making decisions with implications on a global scale.  Reporting directly to President George W. Bush.  A true power player.

Now relegated to begging college kids to stop saying the F curse because it’s a naughty word and is embarrassing him. We’re on television for gosh sakes. Really hope for his sake that this open letter works. If there’s one thing drunk college kids will listen to it’s a well reasoned, rational open letter. Especially if it’s an in-state rival. Always got to show the utmost respect to them.

RIP Fuck KU chant.
