Kansas State apologizes for ‘offensive’ halftime show


During halftime of their blowout win over the South Dakota Coyotes, the Kansas State Wildcats marching band produced a very interesting formation. That formation was deemed as offensive by some, but the Wildcats have responded to the criticism by trying to provide some clarity on what their formation represented.

The formation was taking a shot at the school’s rival, Kansas, and showed a Jayhawk being attacked by the starship enterprise.

However, it looked a lot more… graphic.

That led to an apology.

Director of the K-State Marching Band Frank Tracz added the following:

“The chart below represents the drill from tonight’s show. There was absolutely no intent to display anything other than the Enterprise and the Jayhawk in battle. If I am guilty of anything it would be the inability to teach the drill in a manner that these young people could have succeeded. I do apologize for the misinterpretation and I assure you that I meant absolutely no disrespect or malice toward the University of Kansas.”

We’re glad that is all cleared up.
