I guess the No. 5-ranked Auburn Tigers were the cats that had nine lives last Thursday night, as they pulled out a 20-14 victory. But even though K-State couldn't get the win, I still walked away proud to be a Wildcat.
"It was definitely a lot better than I thought it would be. The hospitality was great. From the moment we walked into our room, everybody has been so genuine, nice and helpful. Being a part of the game day experience here, it's been a lot more intense than I thought it was going to be. You never know coming in what it's going to be like, but overall, it was great here."
I'm anxious to see the College Road Trip segment on K-State this coming Wednesday, September 24, at 5 PM CT on ESPNU. The show will also air at 10:30 PM Wednesday and at 8 AM and 3:30 PM on Thursday, September 25.
We sat with Brent for the Thursday night game, then traveled to Topeka to spend Friday with Jill, Kinley and Brooke. All around, it was a FAMILY weekend ... just how we like it!
