Kansas State Wildcats: It's All About The Purple [video]



The Kansas State Wildcats have some of the most passionate fans around. Maybe more than any other fan base, Wildcats faithfully embrace their primary team color as part of their school identity.

Kansas State Wildcats love their purple! A good friend of mine, Kim Hall, even owns a purple VW Bug, for crying out loud! She loves and babies that thing.

Don’t take my word for it. This Wildcat fan, with the YouTube handle of “goodforanotherksu”, put together this video montage of Kansas State football highlights, imploring school officials to play  the song “Start Wearing Purple” by Gogol Bordello during home football games.

While the 2013-2014 sports year hasn’t been as good as last year, what Kansas State accomplished in 2012-2013 was underrated and under publicized. Last year, the Wildcats earned a share of the regular season Big 12 Conference championship in football, basketball, and baseball – an incredible trifecta!

It just seems few fans identify with their school color more than the Wildcats do. They certainly embrace the purple. Between the purple, and the strong Power Cat logo, Kansas State has worked to increase their level of recognition, not only locally, but nationally.

Purple is part of the trademark that is Kansas State University, and it is so cool how the fans accept the color as part of what makes them Wildcats. Throughout the KC Kingdom, there is no doubt. If you love purple, you are a Wildcat.

Be sure to check out the great tongue-in-cheek video from “goodforanotherksu”, about the down and out Kansas Jayhawks football team.
