Kansas State Marching Band Sorry for NSFW Halftime Show

College Game Day returned Saturday to the delight of football fans around the country, but the one story to come out of the weekend didn't involve a player or a team.

It's all about one unforgettable marching band.

During Kansas State football's halftime show, the school's band tried to nail the "Space" theme that involved scenes from Star Trek and Star Wars. The band members attempted to form the Kansas mascot — a Jayhawk — and what was supposed to be the Starship Enterprise crashing into it. For better or worse, however, the spaceship ended up resembling male genitalia.

The school's president apologized on social media.

"I am sorry if anyone was offended by the performance at half-time," Kirk H. Schulz shared online.

The marching band's director offered explanation for the questionable formation on Facebook hours after the game concluded.

"The chart below represents the drill from tonight's show. There was absolutely no intent to display anything other than the Enterprise and the Jayhawk in battle," Frank Tracz wrote on Facebook. "If I am guilty of anything, it would be the inability to teach the drill in a manner that these young people could have succeeded."

If there's a bright side to this story, Kansas State would end up beating South Dakota 34 to zero.
