Locker Room Chats | Part 2

September 23, 2014
By Kelly McHugh

The 2014-15 K-State men's basketball season is just around the corner, and leading up to the season, K-State Sports Extra readers have the opportunity to get to know the returning players on a whole new level through this fall's "Locker Room Chats" series. 

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.

It's been a while since ESPN college football sideline reporter and College Gameday host Sam Ponder has visited Manhattan, Kansas. While the scenery may be a bit different than it was five years ago, she's glad to see the foundation has remained the same.

Keep moving on, keep fighting - that's the only thing No. 20 K-State football can do now that last night's 20-14 loss to the No. 5 Auburn Tigers is in the rearview mirror. A game littered with mistakes, while the Wildcats may have closed the night with the "L," the team proved it was capable of keeping up with any team in the nation.

Letter from A.D. John Currie - September 15

Good afternoon Wildcats!

Thursday night's football game against 5th-ranked Auburn provides us a unique opportunity to showcase our program and university on ESPN's Thursday Night College Football platform. As we approach the game, which I believe to be one of the hottest tickets in K-State history, I want to provide some thoughts and details that will allow you a smoother trip to and from the stadium.
