Jayhawk football has arrived

August 28, 2008

Throughout this offseason, many a Jayhawk Nation member has made reference to the football program’s “arrival.” In between remembering that the basketball team won the national championship. How many has the University of Missouri won?

But I digress.

Some say it came with (another) record number for season tickets, others the fact that two non-conference games are on national TV. Then, when two backup running backs announced their intentions to transfer during fall practice, another group chimed in.

Everyone can agree it’s the new football-only facility next to the stadium, right? I mean, you’re still a football school if your football offices are in the same space as the other sports?

I think the recent changes to tailgating and parking have signaled the program’s arrival. SEC schools would look on this at laugh. But they’re way ahead of the Big 12. They’re into giant houndstooth hats.

Now that’s a football school.
