Traditions: “The Rock Chalk Chant" has been used at KU sporting events for more than 80 years. The traditional chant was started by KU chemistry professor E.H.S. Bailey, who wanted to create a cheer for his science club and patterned his chant after the rhythmic sound of a train rolling along the tracks. Originally, the cheer was "Rah, Rah, Jayhawk, KU," but an English professor suggested the chant be revised to "Rock Chalk Jayhawk, KU" to make the words rhyme and also pay tribute to KU's chalky limestone buildings found on campus. At basketball games, "The Rock Chalk Chant" traditionally comes before the game and also in the final minutes when the Jayhawks are leading by a comfortable margin.
