The Kansas State student section has made a habit out of chanting F*** KU at sporting events. This led the school’s band to threaten to end the playing of the Wabash Cannonball following last week’s game against South Dakota. The Wabash has been a K-State tradition since 1968 and its one of the fun things about visiting Bill Snyder Family Stadium.
On Saturday, K-State had its first home game since the warning was issued and the students replaced F-KU with K-S-U during the song. Head Men’s Basketball coach Jerome Tang could be seen leading the student’s chant. That certainly didn’t hurt the school’s efforts to turn the chat into something more positive.
Here is the NSFW version of the chant:
According to @landonian87 from @KSNTNews and @KSNTSports, the Wabash Cannonball won’t be played if the @KState student section keeps chanting “F-KU” during the song. Only one section of students participated on Saturday. Caution: LANGUAGE pic.twitter.com/PrIJ3opXPY

Kids will be kids and they are just having some fun. It’s fairly harmless but you can definitely hear it on tv during some of the games. This isn’t a good look for the university. Maybe the students should have picked their spots better instead of doing it all the time. The vulgar version certainly isn’t worth losing a longstanding tradition over. I can’t help but chuckle when they use it, though.
Cats Dog Walk Mizzou
The Cats would go on to steamroll Missouri 40-12 while holding Missouri to 222 yards of total offense and snagging 4 interceptions. Deuce Vaughn starred again for the Wildcats. He had 145 yards rushing and 2 TDs. This marks the eighth straight game he has gone over 100 yards and ninth game in a row with a TD. Phillip Brooks led the K-State in receiving with three catches for 57 yards. The Wildcats have only thrown for 196 yards through two games. They haven’t needed to throw much yet so it may not mean much but it is something to keep an eye on. The Cats host Tulane this week. Kickoff is set for 2:00 PM Central Saturday, Sept. 17.
