Interesting how it sounds like game superstitions have slacked off since Bill came. Wonder if HCBS has any game day superstitions. I know Roy and Brown did.




Self is extremely superstitious, he's often talked about it. Like all the "you play in the clothes you practice in" stuff.

I do the opposite, whatever i'm wearing when we lose is now bad luck and never gets worn again

funny because I never would have thought someone as practical as Self would be superstitious. I just can't see him being that way. lol

I wore the same clothes for every NCAA tournament game in 1988. I was 14 and thought it made a difference.

Haven't done it since. I try to wear something with KU on it for every game, but have realized it has no bearing on the outcome.

I wonder if any of the players have stuff like this...ala Keith Langford and his changing shoes after bad halves.

For me,,no. I discovered that since Bill Self has been our coach, we haven't needed it. However, the wife is very much attached to the sweatshirt that helped win usthe national title in 2008. It is 9-1 since then, when she puts it on when the game is tight.

RCJHKU!

I have a KU Basketball sweatshirt that is old and pilled, but if I don't wear it, we are in danger of losing, case in point OK State. It was dirty during the Tenessee game. It is now clean and ready for Saturday!

My superstition is that I have to use my Jayhawk credit card at least once on game day before the game starts, and I wear my t-shirt that commemorates the KU ncaa championship in bowling- I don't know why, but it is what it is.

Blue Kansas shirt sitting on the edge of my couch, everyone has their own seating arrangement. I have a plush dog that my friend won out of a claw game named "winston" that watched the national championship with us so now has a permanent home atop the couch.

Well...it's my fault we lost two games this year. I had to work and was unable to wear my classic all blue "Kanas Jayhawks" shirt.

That off my conscience. I've had that shirt 6 years and it will be retired after this season. My 5 year-old has a Jayhawk shirt just for gameday as well. Our tradition is we wave a KU flag every time we score scream at the screen.

My wife wants to kill me every game.

I am not superstitious, either. Maybe the reason the team overexcelled last year was because we were all wearing our '08 Championship sweatshirts.

I used to wear a certain shirt, but now I just wear any KU gear, and believe me, I have a lot to choose from. Once the tourney starts though, I wear the same shirt for every game. I also have an AWESOME pair of KU shoes that sport the "angry" Jayhawk. So glad my hubby found them for me I also deck both my kids out in their KU gear for every game day. We get comments from a lot folks when we are out as a family on game day b/c we are all decked out.

We used to keep our Jayhawk Santa Claus out until the end of the tourney (so he could bring us a championship for Christmas), but he was retired after the 08 championship. Now he gets put away when all the rest of the Christmas stuff does.

Rock Chalk!

I have a sweatshirt that was given to me before the 06-07 tournament. I only wear it during that special time of year.
