Just watched that Jayhawkers movie for the first time. I never realized Harp and Phog Allen disliked each other. And the credits showed Wilt at AFH getting his jersey retired. I always thought he never came back because of the Midwest discrimination of that time. But basically it was because he blamed himself for the title loss in 57....

I could be wrong but I question whether or not Allen and Harp disliked each other. I've never read that, but I have read that Harp was very loyal to Allen. I'm wondering if the movie may have gotten a little carried away on that. The rest is quite correct. Wilt blamed himself for the '57 loss and felt the fans blamed him as well, but they didn't. That was quite a speech Wilt made when his jersey was hung in the rafters.

I was dissappointed in the camera work with the dark scenes. But the budget for that movie was nothing. So they did the best they could I guess. And yes that was quite a speech he gave.
