As a proud Bison alumnus and fan living in Chapel Hill, N.C., I was really excited to watch the Bison play Kansas State in a television match up on FSN Midwest. Unfortunately, my excitement grew to disappointment as the student section continually chanted derogatory chant after derogatory chant at the officials. If North Dakota State University wants to make it to the big time, it surely has to get its crowd in order and act with class.

Earlier this year, I attended the Ohio State/North Carolina game and the crowd started chanting "OVERRATED" to OSU near the end of the game. Roy Williams jumped out of the team huddle and screamed for the sold-out crowd to stop, then went and grabbed the PA and told everyone to be good sports and gracious hosts. Roy is in a different class among coaches. I ask NDSU Coach Tim Miles to take this approach next time our student section gets out of line.

For NDSU to join the big time, it needs good nonconference opponents to want to come to the Bison Sports Arena. Unfortunately, I can't help but think K-State wasn't too impressed with our students' showing Dec. 9.
