K-State fans troll KU with mock PSA to stop court storming
Court storming and public service announcements. Two things Kansas State Wildcats fans are, apparently, quite good at.
It all started Monday night, when K-State fans rushed the court after beating the No. 8 Kansas Jayhawks. By Tuesday morning, there was a national debate on safety issues, an upset Kansas State athletic director and a police hunt for a K-State student who bumped into Jayhawks player Jamari Traylor during the postgame party.
The fun didn’t stop there, either. On Tuesday evening, said student, identified as Kansas State enrollee Nathan Power, turned himself in to authorities and issued a public apology through the university’s newspaper. And finally, on Wednesday, Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby publicly reprimanded KSU for being "unsuccessful in ensuring the safety and security of both game participants and spectators."
Needless to say, the time-honored tradition of rushing the court was dissected and analyzed more than it probably should be.
So for those who prefer to see the lighter side of the story, look no further than this public service announcement to stop court storming that was posted to YouTube by Wildcats fans. And, of course, it took direct aim at Rock Chalk nation.
"Haven’t enough feelings been hurt already?" the description on the video states. "For only $18 dollars a month you can provide food, shelter, medical assistance and most importantly, love, for a victim of court storming this season. Pick up the phone or go online."
Point, Kansas State.
And to make the video even better, the music on the clip is by ol’ sad songs herself, Sarah McLachlan.
