Kansas State University is being drawn into the Senate campaign for Republican Sen. Pat Roberts, despite protests from the university.
Longtime K-State Football coach Bill Snyder seems to endorse Roberts in a new campaign ad.
The problem? Political endorsements aren't allowed by university policy.
K-State president Kirk Schulz says in a memo that the the university talked to Snyder about the video. Snyder told them he was unaware his comments would be used on the campaign and apologized.
When asked about a post-game press conference, Snyder says he was embarrassed by the ad.
K-State has asked the Roberts campaign to stop running the video. The Roberts campaign dispute that and say they've never received a request to stop the ad and it continues to run.
Roberts is facing independent candidate Greg Orman.
