It's Homecoming weekend, and we are already enjoying seeing K-State alumni rolling in for a full weekend of activities, which we'll cover in greater detail later in this letter. But first, let's all wish K-State's men's and women's cross country teams good luck in our first Big 12 Championship of the year, tomorrow morning in Austin.
I do want to take a quick moment to look back at our victorious trip to West Virginia last weekend, primarily because of the numerous letters and notes I have received from our fans about how well they were treated by the host fans of the Big 12's newest member institution. We salute President Jim Clements and AD Oliver Luck for establishing a high level of sportsmanship expectation and tone. And, we continue to appreciate the great job K-State fans are doing to set the example for all of college athletics in how we welcome our visiting fans here at Bill Snyder Family Stadium with "The Best Fan Experience in Big 12."
And, it was a tremendous performance on and off the field in Milan-Puskar Stadium, with K-Staters from 22 states attending the pre-game alumni function (click here for additional alumni functions on the road) and approximately 3,500-4,000 Wildcat fans at the game, all wearing purple I might add! Thanks for your passion for the Cats!
