Kansas State might change one of their pregame traditions after a student was injured over the weekend.

A member of KSU's cheer squad dressed as a West Virginia fan began having a seizure after he was tackled by Willie the Wildcat before last Saturday's game.

The student was taken to an area hospital where he was evaluated and released.

Now the school's athletic department is reviewing the practice of mascot skits, and is looking at changing those performed by Willie and the cheer squad before football games.

What do you think of the tradition? Please leave a comment below.
