MANHATTAN, KAN. -- When Bramlage Coliseum is packed as it was for Tuesday’s Sunflower Showdown, there is no louder place on the planet. Ears will ring into the next day. Students, who are treated royally with midcourt seats that stretch from the bottom to top of the building, scream and boo with passion. The team’s pregame entrance comes compete with dramatic music and a behind-the-scenes player dance contest captured on the big screen.
