K- State students asked to sign pledge M anhattan ( ap ) — Kansas State students will have to sign a sportsmanship pledge before they can pick up their tickets for sporting events this year. The pledge requires students to refrain from using profanity and inappropriate chants and to show respect for all athletes, coaches, fans and officials, The Wichita Eagle reported. Students and athletic administrators together came up with the idea of the sportsmanship pledge, the first in the Big 12 Conference. The pledge followed problems that arose during a Kansas State- Kansas men’s basketball game last season in Manhattan. Students chanted inappropriate language during the game and stormed the court afterward, and one student seemed to intentionally bump Kansas player Jamari Traylor. “ We want to take the lead in the Big 12 and try to have our student section be representative of the type of environment that should be present at college sporting events,” said Scott Garrett, K- State’s senior associate athletic director for external operations. If a student violates the sportsmanship pledge, he or she risks punishment from the school, including having their tickets taken away for the year’s remainder. Kansas State officials say students who behave badly during games will be dealt with on a caseby- case basis.

By John Hanna Associated Press Motel owner accused of stabbing wife for being ‘ fat’ heading to trial The 46- year- old owner of Lawrence’s Super 8 motel was bound over for trial on a charge of attempted firstdegree murder Tuesday after waiving his right to a preliminary hearing in the case. Navinkumar Patel, of Shawnee, is accused of stabbing his wife twice in the abdomen at his motel at 515 McDonald Drive on June 24. According to an affidavit supporting his arrest, Patel told police he did so after growing angry with her because she was eating a bowl of Cheerios and he thought she was “ fat.” His wife survived the stabbing, which allegedly occurred in an office area near the motel lobby. After the attack, she ran from the area and found an “ unknown man” who provided first aid and helped her call police, Lawrence Police Detective M. T. Brown wrote in the affidavit. When police arrived, an officer asked Patel if there was a disturbance going on, and Patel directed him to the office, according to the affidavit. Patel then handed the knife, which he still had in hand, to the officer, according to the affidavit. Patel then allegedly told the officer, “ I stabbed her.” Medics responded and took the woman to Lawrence By Caitlin Doornbos Twitter: @ CaitlinDoornbos Hall Nick Krug/ Journal- World File Photo A KANSAS STATE FAN jumps into Kansas University forward Jamari Traylor, pictured at right, on the court following the Wildcats’ victory over the Jayhawks last season at Bramlage Coliseum.
