Originally called the Aggies, it was in 1915 that Kansas State University's new coach, "Chief" Bender, nicknamed his team the Wildcats. However, they wore the moniker "Farmers" for a year before the Wildcats name stuck for good. Their team color was chosen in 1896. KSU athletics have been known as the Purple Pride since Vince Gibson's tenure as coach.
With its recent 75% winning record, Kansas State's football program has gained extra bragging rights in addition to its participation in post-season bowl games 14 out of 19 seasons. Since 1993 the Wildcats claim the top 25% of schools able to win 11 games in six out of seven seasons. Under coach Bill Snyder's tutelage, they rate third in overall wins for the Big 12 Conference.
