of mixed race, said Jessie Myles,
director of multicultural education

cars were overturned and people were
injured, The Associated Press report
If needed, KSU Police will also
help in Aggieville, a popular bar dis
trict where many fans go for post
French said barricades will be set
up in Aggieville to block traffic.
Pedestrians will not be allowed to
bring in hard containers.
Businesses in Aggieville also are
ready for a big day.
Ballard’s Sporting Goods was
expecting more customers than it
could handle even with a doubled
work force scheduled.
Becky Ballard, who owns the
business with her husband, Steve,
said Ballard’s will have three shirts
commemorating the game ready
within an hour if the Wildcats win.
If the Wildcats lose, she expects
sales of all merchandise to drop off
dramatically throughout the week
Bar owners in Aggieville are brac
ing for the crowds.
Bob Leetch, owner of the Lucky
BrewGrille restaurant and bar, said he
will have extra security to make sure
the night moves along safely.
“If those goal posts come down, I
think it will be a controlled, fun
atmosphere, and everybody will have
a great time,” Leetch said.
Fan excitement for the game has
been building all season, and it is only
heightened now that the Wildcats,
ranked No. 1 in the ESPN/USA
Today Coaches’ Poll, could qualify
for the national championship game.
But the fans have adopted a win
ning attitude just like die team has,
“My insurance agent might be
worried, but I’m not,” Ballard said of
the expected crowd. “We’ve learned
how to win. People are much more
graceful and act appropriately.”

tributed to this report.
