Kansas State’s band said its formation was the starship USS Enterprise from Star Trek. It was supposed to be crashing into the Kansas mascot. Trouble was, it looked more like a penis imploring the KU mascot for oral sex.
You can imagine the reaction on social media.
Kansas State president Kirk Schultz (Yes, his name is Kirk; we’re not making this stuff up!) and band director Frank Tracz issued apologies.
In the game, inconsequential as it was, that surrounded the controversial halftime show, Bill Snyder’s Wildcats opened their season with a 34-0 whitewashing of South Dakota.
