That hand thing the students do now that they stole from Baylor.  I don't know whats more K-StateO, the motion itself or that our own ideas are so bad we had to steal from Baylor.

Actually, we didn't steal this from Baylor, we used to do it a long time ago, but that tradition kinda faded until recently.  It's only perceived that we stole it from Baylor. Hand gesturing is not unique in college football, but unfortunately I'm not a hand gesturing type of fan, so indeed the hand gesture is very goofy, awkward, and very kstate0.


Texas A&M.  Stole the specific hand sign from them. Check my link plz, tia.

The John Philip Sousa Wildcat March.

What would the tucks do if that got eliminated from the pre-game show? Probably a lot sitting, complaining talking about how we should feel honored that JPS wrote a really bad song for us.

This is the worst part of pre-game.

maybe, but not K-Stateo.  it's just an old thing that happens.  K-Stateo is more about trying to be awesome, (proud of this house, hot dogs, fireworks, showing 1998 highlights every game forever until the end of time) and just ending up at K-Stateo.

Yeah, some of you are just naming things tards like, which doesn't necessarily make it Kstateo.

Mods: does this hat count as K-Stateo?

K-State's EcoKat

While Willie the Wildcat typically amps up crowds of purple, his new sidekick will be encouraging K-Staters to go green. Meet EcoKat, K-State's crusader of conservation and fanatic of fluorescent lightbulbs.
 
Along with Willie, the pair -- dubbed the EcoEnforcers -- has set out to reduce K-State's energy usage by 15 percent over the next four years by educating students about what they can do to cut back and conserve.
 
Beginning this week, EcoKat will show the community how to be more environmentally conscious through appearances, promotional events and a series of online Webisodes. The videos -- to be available in late August -- and corresponding website can be found at k-state.edu/ecokat.
 
"Part of my job is to educate the university community on ways they can conserve energy," said Casey Lauer, director of energy and environment. "My idea was to create a video that was a challenge to students -- ‘What's one thing you can to do conserve?' Because that one thing multiplied by 24,000 people equals a big change."
 
The EcoKat video idea was born from a serious call to action that morphed into a more humorous, tough-love take on environmentalism, inspired by Reebok's popular Terry Tate Office Linebacker commercial series and "The Biggest Loser" personal trainer Jillian Michaels.
 
Willie the Wildcat was added into the equation to make the campaign uniquely K-State, because he is an adored and recognizable character in the community.
 
"We didn't want to go over the top with it, so that's when Willie was brought in as her muscle. She's the brain and Willie's her back up," Lauer said. "It has the same feel as the Terry Tate series, but it was different enough with the EcoEnforcers spin that it gained its own sense of identity."
 
The EcoEnforcers project initially began as a behavioral education tool to make students aware of their energy consumption, Lauer said. But once the groundwork was established, it grew to include more facets like the Take Charge! Challenge, which runs through September.
 
EcoKat, who is played by a K-State senior who auditioned for the role, is outfitted in a costume made of 90 percent repurposed materials, coming mostly from the athletics department. The department of apparel, textiles and interior design used eco-friendly dyes to get the final look, making it entirely sustainable and recyclable within K-State.
 
The university will be able to measure EcoKat's success by determining changes in energy usage based on data collected prior and during this project. Energy dashboards will be set up in buildings around campus to show how much energy is being used and where it can be reduced.
 
"The energy dashboards display real-time energy consumption and are a learning tool for feedback and awareness," Lauer said. "They serve as a window into prioritizing how and where to improve conditions on campus."

The list starts and stops with the Big Cats if we want to get serious about this.

Beginning to think maybe Schultz doesn't know what he is doing.  If he wants us to be taken seriously as a university we've got to stop with the gimmicks.

Schultz is a treasure. I can't wait to see these videos on Youtube, and I just hope that Willie and EcoKat join hands to create EPAW Power while fighting pollution.

green initiatives are great.  marketing them in this manner is not great.  how does something like this get approved?  is the target audience a group of 4th graders from Marlatt Elementary?  did they think that ecoKat will turn even the most ardent polluters into ecowarriors?

The amount of exposure this initiative will give K-State for the amount of money K-State is going to spend on the campaign just cannot be beat. This is going to be just as good, and maybe even better than the power towel video.
