KU Kickoff at Corinth Square
Kansas Athletics and the KU Alumni Association will join forces to host the ninth annual KU Kickoff at Corinth Square located at 83rd & Mission Road in Prairie Village, Kan. Kansas football head coach Charlie Weis and selected KU Athletics staff will each address the crowd at Corinth Square, starting at 6 p.m. The KU Kickoff at Corinth Square is a family-friendly event that will include food, drinks and KU giveaways as well as inflatable games for kids. A limited number of coupons for Corinth Square vendors will be available for members of the KU Alumni Association and Williams Education Fund who show their membership cards.
Gameday vs. Southeast Missouri State
Kansas opens the 2014 season against a Southeast Missouri State team looking for a new identity under first-year head coach Tom Matukewicz, who was hired in December after serving two years as the defensive coordinator at Toledo. A Division I FCS program and member of the Ohio Valley Conference, the Redhawks went 3-9 in 2013. They return dual threat QB Scott Lathrop and talented WR and kick returner Spencer Davis.
Gameday vs. Central Michigan
(Family Weekend/Band Day)
Central Michigan will be battle tested when it arrives in Lawrence for KU's second home game of the season having played at Purdue and against Syracuse in non-conference action in consecutive weeks prior. The Chippewas went 6-6 in 2013 after playing a similarly grueling non-conference slate against Michigan, UNLV and NC State. Look out for Chippewa receiver Titus Davis, who caught 61 passes for 1,109 yards while earning All-Mid American Conference First Team honors in 2013.
Gameday vs. Texas
Kansas opens Big 12 Conference play and celebrates homecoming by welcoming another new head coach to Memorial Stadium when Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns visit Sept. 27. Texas went 8-5 during the 2013 season, including a 35-13 win over the Jayhawks in Austin towards the end of a six-game winning streak. Malcolm Brown returns for the Longhorns after rushing for nearly 1,000 yards while splitting carries with Johnathan Gray. Texas lost to No. 10 Oregon in the Valero Alamo Bowl.
Gameday vs. Oklahoma State
Despite dropping a 41-31 shootout to former Big 12 foe Missouri in the AT&T Cotton Bowl, Oklahoma State was one of the top teams in the country last season while posting a 10-3 overall record and 7-2 mark in Big 12 play. The Cowboys lose All-Big 12 Second Team QB Clint Chelf, but dual threat J.W. Walsh started five games last season and the Cowboys return productive RB Desmond Roland. The Cowboys will be without their top two receivers (NFL Draft and graduation), but recent history suggests a new star will emerge - perhaps sophomore Jhajuan Seales, who was honorable mention for 2013 Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Year.
Gameday vs. Iowa State
(Salute to Service)
The Cyclones dropped seven straight contests to open Big 12 play but rallied to win two straight - over Kansas and West Virginia - to close the season 2-7 in the league and 3-9 overall. The Jayhawks will be looking for revenge, and warmer weather, in this contest while also honoring veterans with a Salute to Service promotion.
Gameday vs. TCU
TCU returns 18 starters from last year's squad that needed a third quarter surge to pull away from Kansas at Amon Carter Stadium in Fort Worth. Kansas forced five turnovers in the contest and will look to be similarly ball disruptive when TCU visits Memorial Stadium in the 2014 home finale. Be there as KU recognizes the contributions of its senior class on Senior Day.
Charlie Weis (HC)
The owner of four NFL Super Bowl rings and one-time National College Coach of the Year after coaching teams to back-to-back BCS Bowl Games, Kansas head coach Charlie Weis enters the third season of his revitalization effort at KU. Weis has undoubtedly picked the Jayhawks' football program up and set it on a firm foundation while continuing his goal of turning Kansas into consistent winners.
John Reagan (OC)
Considered one of the bright, young offensive minds in college football, John Reagan returns to Kansas after helping Rice to a Conference USA Championship in 2013 and guiding the Owls to their second-most productive offensive season in 2012. Reagan previously spent five years as an assistant coach at KU (2005-09) where he helped the Jayhawks produce the best season in school history and set numerous offensive school records.
Clint Bowen (DC)
A former leading tackler for the Jayhawks at defensive back, Clint Bowen has revamped and reenergized the Jayhawk defense as its coordinator. Playing in one of the most high-powered offensive conferences in the country, Bowen has accepted the challenge of improving one of the nation's most pourous defenses prior to his arrival and has the unit giving up nearly 100 yards less per game over the last two years.
"In this family, our blood runs deep,
and our loyalties even deeper.
Check your pulse, make sure you're ready,
because this fight takes every single one of us."
Cozart was name KU's starting quarterback after he earned Offensive MVP honors in KU's annual Spring Game, leading his Blue team to a 20-10 win over the White team. He finished the game completing 6-of-10 passes for 58 yards, while also rushing for 70 yards and two touchdowns on seven carries.
A WR when he first entered college, Johnson was successful not only as a newcomer to the Jayhawks, but as a newcomer to the defensive backfield. He finished the 2013 campaign with the most interceptions by a Jayhawk since 2008, when Darrell Stuckey also picked off five passes.
Averaged 81.8 yards receiving through the first four games, including a 118-yard performance against Texas Tech before leaving with an injury that sidelined him for much of the remaining season. Caught 24 passes for 333 yards and rushed for another 163 while making the transition to receiver.
History of the Jayhawk
Mascots are believed to bring good luck, especially to athletic teams. Just about every college and university claims a mascot. The University of Kansas is home to the Jayhawk, a mythical bird with a fascinating history.
The Fight Song
“I’m a Jayhawk,” written in 1912 by KU graduate George “Dumpy” Bowles, became popular with KU students in 1920. The lyrics remained unchanged until 1958, when slight revisions included rival schools in the Big Eight Conference.
Waving the Wheat
At crucial moments — for example, when the football team scores or a basketball opponent fouls out — Jayhawks in the stadium lift their arms over their heads and slowly wave them back and forth. From a distance, this looks like a field of Kansas wheat swaying in a prairie breeze.
Rock Chalk Chant
The Rock Chalk Chant has been the battle cry of KU fans for over 100 years. This strange, traditional chant, which is among the most famous of all college cheers, was started by E.H.S. Bailey, a professor of chemistry.
In 1891, professor George Barlow Penny searched for a school song for the Glee and Mandolin Club to sing on a tour. Changing a few words, Penny taught Cornell's "Far Above Cayuga's Waters" to the glee club. The campus has been singing "Crimson and the Blue" ever since.
KU's colors have been crimson and blue since the early 1890s. Originally, the Board of Regents had decided to adopt Michigan's maize and sky blue, but in 1890 a clamor arose for Harvard's crimson to honor Col. John J. McCook. Faculty members who graduated from Yale insisted that their lineage not be overlooked and in 1896 crimson and blue were officially adopted.
"We don't run away from challenges...we chase them down."
