Listening to Juicy Wiggle (which I like), why does KSU use Wabash Cannonball? Nothing to do with Kansas at all. Maybe someone can inform me, inquiring minds want to know.

The "Wabash Cannonball" has played a vital part in K-State spirit, dating back to December 1968 when Nichols Gym burned. The fire destroyed most of the band's instruments and sheet music. With a basketball game coming up three days later, the band scrambled to find instruments and sheet music. Band director Phil Hewett had sheet music at his home, which included the "Wabash Cannonball." This song has been an inspiring song for K-Staters, which is characterized by the dancing and rocking done by the crowd during the song.

There's even a KSU Wabash Cannonball Scholarship

I love Juicy Wiggle, but I also really like what I call the soccer hooligan (I'm not exactly sure how to describe it) type music they've been playing at ISU FB and BB games.
