Vanderbilt Watch Party - September 16, 2017
Mike Rieger ’06, reported that fifteen faithful fans crowded into Richmond Republic in San Francisco Saturday for what promised to be an evenly-matched contest for K-State's toughest non-conference game yet. The record K-State crowd at the Draught House witnessed an anemic K-State offense sputter to a 14-7 defeat to Vanderbilt, in a game that saw the Wildcats enter the end zone three times, but only come away with 7 points due to an instant replay reversal and needless penalty. The Commodore defense was stingy as expected, as K-State's Jessie Ertz went 10-28 for 76 yards and two interceptions. Although the result was not what was hoped for, the alumni group was loud during the game and made their presence felt at the bar. Multiple Kansan’s visiting the bar stopped by to say hello and wish us luck.

The Alumni Association sponsored a pre-game party attended by approximately 800 K-State fans on the Vanderbilt campus. I was able to attend the game along with approximately 18,000 other K-Staters in the 40,000 seat stadium. Fans from both seemed to get along quite well. Nashville was a great city to visit and watch the Wildcats, if only the Cats would have been more ferocious.

Charlotte Watch Party - September 9, 2017
UN-Charlotte visited Manhattan and provided another early easy opponent for K-State as the Cats totally overwhelmed the 49ers, running away with a 55-7 victory. Though Charlotte was not expected to give the Cats much opposition, K-State's defense played a stronger game than last week. Jesse Ertz was again on target having another excellent game passing to a talented group of receivers when he wasn't running the ball. The running backs game also played well. The easy victory took all of the tension out of the game for Wildcat fans at Ricky's in San Leandro and Richmond Republic in San Francisco.

Central Arkansas Watch Party - September 2, 2017
A hot day in the Bay Area impacted our watch party attendance at Richmond Republic, but we did have four stalworth fans watch tthe Central Arkansas Bears, a strong FCS team, take on the Wildcats Saturday. The Bears high hopes to defeat the Cats were squashed early in the game as DJ Reed took the opening kickoff 96 yards before being tackled at the four yard line. Two plays later the Cats picked up the touchdown and they never looked back. Early passes by Jesse Ertz went awry, but then he was unstoppable throwing for four touchdowns and 333 yards. A great start for the season with a 55-19 victory.
