You don’t have to be from Kansas to know the exciting rivalry of Bulls vs. Knicks, or the Celtics vs. Lakers. Here in Kansas our big rivalry is KSU or Kansas State University Wildcats vs. KU, or Kansas University Jayhawks. The rivalry between these two schools dates back to the 1860’s and although Kansas University has been the more dominant team in basketball, Kansas State University, or KSU, packed Fred Bramlage Coliseum with 12,528 highly energetic fans on February 10, who helped cheer the Wildcats on to victory over Kansas University, or KU with a score of 85-82. Attending this high energy monumental win were the Color Guard cadets from St. John’s Military School. The last two years St. John’s has been asked to support the K-State basketball programs by providing a Color Guard for their home games.
The Color Guard received great compliments and were often complimented in the fact that they were better than than the college programs and often the active duty Color Guards. This year we requested and were chosen to post the colors for the following games:
