Letter from A.D. John Currie - October 1

Happy October K-State Nation!

It is a great time to be a sports fan in the Sunflower State as the Royals won in dramatic fashion last night, the Chiefs had a big Monday Night Football win, Sporting KC continues to climb in stature as one of American soccer's marquee teams and perhaps the most innovative of MLS franchises and all local universities continue their fall sports season. For us, that means two road volleyball matches, first against the Jayhawks tonight and then at Texas Tech this weekend, cross country action in Fayetteville, Ark., as coach Ryun Godfrey makes his debut in purple and, of course, Saturday evening's ESPNU televised football game against Texas Tech at Bill Snyder Family Stadium at 6 p.m.

This week for me started with a Monday morning NCAA Administrative Cabinet meeting in Indianapolis followed by Tuesday morning meetings back in Manhattan and then a drive over to KC yesterday afternoon for a fun dinner with a group of passionate K-State basketball fans. After dinner, city-wide attention to the baseball game meant the roads were completely empty on my short drive over to the Overland Park Hampton Inn! Today I'll be making some more visits around KC before driving back to MHK in time to watch tonight's volleyball game on Cox.

Letter from A.D. John Currie - September 22

Good afternoon K-State Nation!

I hope you were truly able to use Sunday as a day of rest after a very busy several days in MHK!

Let's start today's update by congratulating Coach Suzie Fritz and the K-State volleyball team, which on Saturday captured its third early season tournament title of the season - this time in Ann Arbor defeating host Michigan on its homecourt along with Eastern Michigan and Youngstown State. Having now won 11 straight matches, Coach Fritz's squad is 13-1 and on the cusp of a Top 25 ranking. We have a Wildcat Weekend coming up as the Cats host Baylor at 7 p.m., Saturday in Ahearn Field House to open Big 12 Conference play. Remember, you can get in for just $3 with your UTEP football ticket stub. I look forward to seeing a great K-State crowd in Ahearn Saturday night.
