Heard there will be more than 40 recruits at the game. Not sure how many are offer guys.

Been too busy lately to communicate with anyone who would know names but did hear there were going to be some from both Louisiana and Texas coming up.

Yeah, go figure the coldest day in a couple weeks would be the day of the Spring game.

At least it won't be a blizzard like it will be in places like Boulder, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Not sure when any of those schools are having their Spring games though. Considering their locations and when Spring is in those places, maybe sometime in June?

Looks like a big fish out of LA is coming up for the spring game. Making a lot of waves too, as he's currently committed to LSU.

TJ Finley, a 6'7" 230 4 star QB out of Ponchatoula HS in Ponchatoula, LA is gonna be there. Believe he's coming on an official visit too.

Also a bunch of Alumni are coming back for the Alumni game(starts at 5:30PM) too. Guys like,
Aqib Talib
Chris Harris

to name a few,and I think these guys too, but not 100% on them yet,

I'm sure there's plenty more coming too, but those are some of the guys I know (or think with the last 3) will be there off the top of my head.

No idea on attendance, but I imagine it'll be higher than it has been in years with the Les Miles factor and Rick Ross. Weather may affect the total though.

Hearing there may be 50 or more recruits now.

Agreed... on full screen. It’s my understanding a number of the fall games are going to be on + too.

You can do the free 7 day trial of ESPN+ and watch, then cancel the trial.

It was broadcast locally on 38 The Spot and Time Warner/Spectrum sports in the KC area too and Spectrum rebroadcasts it several times, but not sure if you can get access to it that way or not. Someone once told me they had found a way to do this as they had Spectrum as their cable provider but lived out of state. Don't recall the details though.

Haven't checked, but I think it may be available via KU Athletics website too if you pay for their online subscription stuff for media. Recorded radio coverage may also be available online.

I looked around and using my knowledge of how many people can potentially sit in each section and then estimating what percentage of seats were sat in with a photo I took I'd say there was between 11,000 and 13,000 people there yesterday. Maybe a few more as some people were kind of going in and out off and on.

Looks like all 3 of Reesing, Briscoe, and Brown made it too, with Briscoe winning the 12 foot tall player of the game award for the alumni game. Reesing had an INT also...he made one on Bobby Douglass, not threw one! LOL

Oh, and watching McDougald goin nuts on that scooter was HILARIOUS! hahaha

Forgot to add, Micah Brown got nailed in the head with a football on an incomplete pass to the end zone as he was shooting footage from the end zone for a project he's doing for some company that's making a video story on coach Miles.

Oh, and word was 77 total recruits showed up for the game! 77!!

Big big turnout for both recruits and alumni at the game! Was great.

Not sure how the Rick Ross concert went as I had to leave before it got started. At least it didn't rain at all, but the cold wind wasn't pleasant. I think that kept a bunch of fans away from both the game and the concert.
