Do you wear have particular game day clothing you wear for good luck? What's it look like and did your outfit help you win the game? Saturday I am going to wear my most colorful crimson and blue sweatshirt that has a Jayhawk and a basketball and says, 2008 NCAA National Champions. And, I am going to wear my warmest, most comfy socks that are black with gold lines and MIZZOU in gold letters on one side, and a gold tiger on the other side.

Since its tattooed down my ribcage, I always wear "Ad Astra Per Aspera" on my skin.

Plus I've got several National Champions t's that come in handy.

Plus the myriad of Big 12 Champs t's that I've got at my disposal.

Plus I just added a Gameday KU flag on my porch. That helps.

I don't get your MU socks though. Irony?

I thought about adding a porch flag, but I'm afraid my house might get vandalized. I live in Missouri. Office Secret Santa gave me the Tiger socks. I thought socks were just socks, but these are very snuck and warm, just what you need during games when your feet turn into ice cubes. Now I need some gloves when the hands turn cold during the games.

big KU flag on the front porch, the only days it doesn't fly is 7/4 and 9/11.

I have reversible KU bball shorts, blue on one side, red on the other. I wear the same side out until they lose, then turn them inside out until the next loss, and i only wash them at the end of each season...oh yea, i'm superstitious alright

UM?? I think the appropriate response to that gift would be burning those slaver rags...not wearing them....what is wrong with you? Wearing MU socks....good lord.

And nothing else.

Unless I'm going out.

In which case I put on shoes.

Was super superstitious. Used to have a pair of KU socks and a KU hat that I'd put on for rallies. In 2008 I said I wouldn't do anything superstitious all year--so my superstition was not to be superstitious. That same year my backpack along with the socks were stolen at a bar.

KU won the title. I still have the KU shirt and the thermal shirt that accompanied it. I wear the combo during big games but I believe I have managed (almost) to convince myself not to be superstitious anymore.

I seemed to have lost the most of my superstitions after Bill Self started coaching here.

Except, I still can't go to the 1st weekend games in Oklahoma City. Was at both the Rhode Island Game and the Bucknell game.

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.

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.

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!

Well, it took 8 KU shirt changes, 3 KU sweatpants changes, 2 whitie-tightie changes and almost waking a baby to make this one happen. Ended up in a pair of Sears KU sweats, no banties and shirtless. Rock Chalk.
