Frank Tracz, the director of K-State’s band, has been suspended one game by the university after Saturday’s halftime show performance that appeared to depict a Jayhawk eating a gigantic penis. Tracz tried to defend himself yesterday by saying the band formation was of the Starship Enterprise and not a penis but no one was buying that.

After Saturday’s game, the administration formally apologized to the chancellor and athletic director at the University of Kansas, which was the mascot depicted by the band,” the statement read. “K-State students previously signed a sportsmanship pledge as a way to increase the awareness of good sportsmanship.”
The penalties imposed by Kansas State:
1. A self-imposed $5,000 fine to be paid to the Big 12 for violation of league sportsmanship policy
2. A single-game suspension for the university director of bands. The suspension will take place for the game against Kansas on Nov. 28.
3. Prior approval for all content in the band’s halftime shows by representatives of the Office of Student Life and the Athletic Department.
One game for pulling off the greatest troll in K-State history was totally worth it. Suck it, Kansas.
