Tonight was a big moment for our basketball programs as fans filled Bramlage Coliseum for Madness in Manhattan and the official start of the 2010-11 season. I appreciate the hard work and creativity of our staff in putting together an entertaining event that included activities with both teams, drop-ins into ESPNU’s nationally televised midnight madness program and a video feature from the cast of ABC’s Modern Family featuring our good friend, K-State alumnus and Emmy Award winner Eric Stonestreet.
There is tremendous excitement surrounding the start of basketball season for both our men’s and women’s programs, as evidenced by the great response we have had in season ticket sales. Another special part of Madness tonight was the unveiling of the plans for our new basketball training facility. Building this facility will impact our ability to be a leader in the new Big 12 Conference and is a strong statement that we are fully committed to the continued success of both basketball programs. Certainly with the highest graduation rate in the Big 12 and great APR scores, our coaches are doing the right things off the floor and we need to continue to provide them the tools to be successful on the court as well.
The Wildcats’ proposed facility will be approximately 50,000 square-feet, is designed by the world-renown architects at Populous and has a projected total cost of $20 million. Located on the east side of Bramlage Coliseum the state-of-the-art building will provide both the men’s and women’s basketball programs an all-inclusive and efficient training facility.
We have so much to be proud of here at Kansas State. When the lights and cameras come on at Bramlage Coliseum and you see a sold-out atmosphere with more than 4,000 screaming students sitting up close in the best seats in the arena, the nation gets a glimpse of the kind of magic we have here at K-State. And when you add the amenities of this basketball practice facility, dedicated weight room and athletic training room spaces, I truly believe we will have a total basketball facility scene that is second to none in all of college basketball.
As most of you know, the ultimate Kansas State advantage is the K-State family. The opportunity now is for the Wildcat family to continue to participate together in making this project a reality. Thanks to a number of leadership donors we currently have approximately $12 million pledged towards the project. We need to reach the $15 million mark prior to beginning construction and then continue to press forward to the final goal of $20 million to keep in line with our commitment to fiscal responsibility. So, we still need your support.
Last week we announced that Madness in Manhattan will be returning and we are excited to be one of six schools nationally to be spotlighted during ESPNU’s coverage of the annual start of basketball season. We are very fortunate to have our basketball programs under the leadership of Coach Martin and Coach Patterson and we look forward to this opportunity to showcase our institution and programs to the nation. The event will take place at 7 p.m. Friday, October 15, which is the evening after our football game against the Jayhawks in Lawrence, and we hope you pack Bramlage. We are planning a few surprises for you that night so mark your calendars to attend!

“I was incredibly impressed. Right before tipoff I just kind of looked around and said, ‘Boy, there is a lot of purple in here.’ They get behind their team. They were into it the whole game.”
-- OSU Coach Travis Ford
“It’s probably the best road atmosphere … I can only remember two other atmospheres that rivaled it, since I’ve been coaching, at Indiana and at Okie State my first year back. To me, this was the atmosphere that was the equivalent of those. That’s one of best road atmospheres I’ve ever been a part of.”
-- KU Coach Bill Self
