Right on and great thread. I went to the games to get bombed and scope chicks when I was there, but that was the late '70's, early '80's. When KU would actually challenge a good team (like beating UCLA in '78 ?), I'd pay attention.

But the best shirt I've seen had nine small LGSU kitty-cat logos with lines through them, then underneath it said, "Cats may have nine lives, but Jayhawks live forever." (I had that as my quote for a while.) I asked the person where she got it and she said they had had them made specially for her sorority. What a shame.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


oh...so her sorority is the University Daily Kansan?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Does that mean the shirt actually IS available somewhere?

Mostly because I think there are two kinds of schools: good schools and party schools. Yeah, its just a bunch of kids who mostly don't even know the name of our starting QB who're wearing them, but still...




Look, the point of this board is to bandy about rumors and opinions like pogs in 1995, but that is one of the most absurd things I have ever read. Both sentences managed to be about 682.7% ignorant.

To the first:

There's only good schools and party schools? So beer bongs here are unacceptable but endless rails of coke at Ivy League schools are? Last I checked KU's national reputation was on the rise. Do we like to party? Absolutely. You tell me what's wrong with work hard/play hard. I'm a student. I'm frequently drunk, especially on weekends. And yet somehow I get good grades, can compose my thoughts in complete, complex sentences, and have a pretty solid future ahead of me. There's only a few years of my life I can live like this. It's offensive to me when people say things as polarized as 'there's two kinds of schools'. Sure, your name suggests you're old enough to be my dad. So you should know that the world doesn't exist in a vacuum. If you think people can't be successful and enjoy a beer or twelve on occasion, you're being awfully naive.

And to the second:

You could not be more wrong. We have known who Kerry Meier was since long before he set foot on campus. We were the ones debating last fall whether or not he should keep the redshirt on, and we're the ones who showed up to Saturday's game mostly because we wanted to see his first TD (or four) as a Jayhawk. I'll take it a step further. I'll bet on a per-capita level, the students who attended the game Saturday were more familiar with KU's depth chart than the rest of the crowd.

Look, you have every right to be ignorant. Clearly, you know this; you exercise that right to its fullest. But don't expect to get away with it. Perhaps you would more appreciate the opinion of someone (estimably) closer to your age level:

"Alumni supply financial support to college athletics, but only the students can truly change the culture of a fan base. The support students lend has deeper roots. They take ownership in a team in a passionate way better measured in decibels than dollars."

So, yes, Win or Lose, We'll Still Booze. We'll fill our glasses, then fill Memorial Stadium. And when it's all over, we'll digest the stat lines as eagerly as we will our Wheel pizza. And we'll do it all again next week. See you there.

So Mr. Fish, I don't believe that oldenough was talking specifically about members of the board, but students in general, like the dullards who spilled beer into my daughters purse last Saturday night. If you need to have one or twelve beers to enjoy a football game, you have some serious issues. I too was once or twice a college student and did many things that I can barely remember, if you get my drift, but NEVER did I attend a sporting event drunk or stoned. The event was more important. To the adults who see the shirts, they are offensive and juvenile. If you don't understand why, then you really don't have a bright future.

I'm not sure I completely agree with this. However, usually when I see a student wearing this slogan, I have a pretty good idea as to their maturity level.

It's not that much different than at the Cubs game last night. Sitting behind some yahoos with their recently purchased "Bleacher Bums" T-shirts that read "Shut up and drink your beer" on the back. It's a stupid shirt with an insipid slogan crying out like a siren to the mouth-breathers of the world.

What made it worse was that we were sitting in the upper deck reserved section - very far from the bleachers. Fitting.

Keegan's article today about the apathy of the program no longer an issue is the true meaning of this thread. The win or lose, we'll still booze shirts only remind us that some dumb arse "fans" still haven't got that message and that there needs to be a public burning for these shirts.

Its a T-shirt guys. Besides it does say WIN or LOSE, not when we lose. A public burning of the shirts, that is the most rediculus idea ever.

Two parts of being in college is wearing old T-shirts because you can't afford to go buy one every week and partying. That is all these people are doing. Calm down.

Apparently, spelling and grammar are not part of the college experience.

Almost every fan (including students) got a free t-shirt upon entering the stadium last week.

Seems to me that throws out your "can't afford" it argument.

Good points and well said...but remember...we've all been in your shoes, but you have yet to be in ours. You will spend much more of your life as an alumnus than you will as the "more passionate student". It takes both of us to help make it work...but moreover, it takes a man on the sidelines who can get athletes and make them become better players. So let neither of us take too much credit.

I never meant to suggest that I need a beer (or twelve) to enjoy a game. All I was upset with was the myopic view that there are good schools and party schools and that the students do not follow the program closely enough to be able to identify the starting quarterback. I am as opposed as anyone to people who go into the game so sloppy-drunk that they spill on fans (and their chidren).

However, please note that obscene drunkenness is not exclusive to college games or college students. Anyone who has ever attended a Chiefs game can attest to that.

Looking at the big picture, can drunken antics of tanked 20-year-olds interfere with your enjoyment of what is becoming a very entertaining atmosphere at the stadium? Absolutely, and I hope you would not hesitate to flag down an event staffer if that is the case.

However, if a few words on a T-Shirt bothers you enough to ruin the game, you are probably too sensitive for your own good. For my part, I'd rather have a stadium full of KU-blue t-shirts advertising drinking and our coach's obesity than the patchwork quilt that is the west side of the stadium during some games.
