    FT HAYS STATE UNIVERSITY is well known around the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference as having poor sportsmanship demonstrated at basketball games. Don't know why, thats just the way they are. Perhaps they are trying to be the Kansas version of the University of Colorado.

    BY THE TIME A HAYS BASKETBALL GAME IS OVER THERE WILL BE millions of pieces of newspaper all over the gym. What a mess it must be to clean up. But more importantly, these shreds cover the concrete steps, making them very slippery. It looks like a lawsuit waiting to happen.

    The public address announcer is one of the more unprofessional ones we have heard. A few years ago when Hays beat an undefeated team, he screamed the other teams new record into the mike, as in "Can you say 18 - and - one?" More recently he yelled "This is the game you've been waiting for!" (which Hays then proceeded to lose). He even makes a big deal about time outs. Someone near us observed that he is quite full of himself.

    Another oddity we have never seen at any other school is that they play their school song (which is fine) but expect fans from visiting schools to stand at attention for it! Hey guys, they aren't alumni of your school, get it?
