I know at the time of my observations of our old family friend's son that KU had training table and most of their team were staying on campus during the summer and working out together (as were most P-5 level teams at the time from what I understand). Not all of them, but definitely most of the starters were.

Things weren't nearly as lax as you describe from the late 60's, but they also weren't quite like they are nowadays either with the entire team spending their entire summers on campus doing team workouts.

I've briefly met both before, but they're both before my time as far as being alive when they played at KU.
