Note: This post may be a bit out of place, but I was born and raised a Jayhawk and in less than two months I will graduate a Jayhawk. It's such a big part of my life and I love sharing it with you.
I'd love to share some links that may explain what it means to be a Jayhawk a little be more:
My friends Sarah wrote this great post on "How it feels to be a Jayhawk."
My friend Jayson wrote a brilliant essay/article on the "The Rules of the Game: Bill Self, Kansas, and basketball history"
An "ode" I wrote to our 2008 National Championship back in 2009
Our Alma Mater & Rock Chalk Chant The rock chalk chant has a rich history which you can read more about here.
Former KU, UNC, UCLA, and NBA coach and Hall of Famer Larry Brown about our arena, Allen Fieldhouse:
"I tell everybody there's not a place around—I know Chapel Hill, Pauley Pavilion, Cameron, you name it. They are pretty special, but there's nothing like this. All the guys who scout, I always tell them, 'You'll never have an experience like Allen Fieldhouse.' This is how a college fieldhouse is supposed to be."
Rock Chalk, friends.
