Will any cheerleaders be present during the game? Might have been interesting to have had a few of them from past years show up to support the cause and lead the crowd during the Rock Chalk chant.

Alohahawk 6 years, 2 months ago

Wow! Max still has a full head of hair. Or is he wearing a rug?

Scott Oswalt 6 years, 2 months ago

I watched the game on kuathletics.com

The video kept cutting out and it was painful to listen to Bud Stallwarth doing the announcing. He wouldn't stop talking about the teams weren't playing any defense. After the 30th time of him talking about defense, I hit the mute button. Great game though. Couldn't have asked for a better ending with Paul and Mario hitting 3 pointers!

Anyone know if they'll make a DVD? Great Christmas present...

REHawk 6 years, 2 months ago

Gotta be a DVD of this event! Available when?????

Hey Nick (and LJW) - thanks for the coverage and pix (how about some video)...sorry, but one correction in the pix/captions: that's Ryan Robertson (#4) going up for a lay-up (not Nick Collison) - I know, both wore #4 and the paleskins all kind of look alike, but Collison was wearing a t-shirt under the jersey.

Nick Krug 6 years, 2 months ago

All these nice photos came from Mike Yoder and Richard Gwin. Thanks for the heads up on the Robertson photo.

Gravy (Jeff Graves) was there??? Awesome. ;-)

Michael Pannacciulli 6 years, 2 months ago

Here are some that I would have expected be there (we know Kirk couldn't make it because his wife is almost due with their baby). And maybe some of these guys were around (I'm basing this off the pics I saw). Can't get 'em all. Wish I was there. Looked like a really fun time.

-Raef Lafrentz -Jacque Vaughn -Kevin Pritchard -Rex Walters

Second Tier: -Russell Robinson/Tyrel/Brady/Sasha/Keith Langford - probably because they are playing overseas -Jerrod Haase -Steve Woodbury -Adonis Jordan -Richard Scott

Third Tier -Calvin Rayford -Jeff Boschee -Michael Lee

ROCK CHALK Baby! Nothing even comes close to KU Baksetball.

Andrew Fry 6 years, 2 months ago

Would have LOVED to have seen Cedric Hunter, Mark Turgeon, Greg Dreiling, Mark Randle (even though he made an appearance), Richard Scott, amd several of the former players already mentioned. Would have loved to have seen Roy make an appearance too.

Michael Auchard 6 years, 2 months ago

I just look at these photos and grin like an idiot. It's never been so apparent to me before now how much I care about this program. Well, maybe that one time in April of 2008... but I digress. These guys are like family members to me. To someone my age, growing up in the '80s, it was really great to see Kellogg and Valentine out there. It's like meeting two new uncles or something. This event was a genius idea, and I will never forget it (or erase the game from my DVR).

Today has been a great day to be a Jayhawk, Rock Chalk for life.

Where was Rex Walters, Adonis Jordan, Steve Woodberry, Jeff Boschee, Jerod Haase, Raef Lafrentz, Eric Chenowith, Darren Hancock, Kurt Hinrich, Drew Gooden, Keith Langford, and Aaron Miles? I think we could have "Legends of the Phog V2.0" next year!!!!!

Scott Stewart 6 years, 2 months ago

Eric Chenowith was there in street clothes. Drew Gooden did a video piece apologizing for no attending due to family and schedule issues. Can't say about the others.

kusports1 6 years, 2 months ago

Eric Chenowith? really? that would not excite me.

Hank Cross 6 years, 2 months ago

Great pics that brought back so many memories. .

McGuzzo23 6 years, 2 months ago

The former players I saw there that weren't playing included

Kevin Pritchard Mark Randle Jeff Gueldner Mike Maddox Chris Piper Sean Pearson Jeff Carey Eric Chenowith Greg Gurley but he works for KU Moulaye Niang

Gooden had a 30th BIrthday party already planned with friends and family, Hinrich's wife was giving birth at any moment. Don't know about Vaughn. I'm guessing Walters and Turgeon are getting ready for the season. That was a good time though.

Steve Gantz 6 years, 2 months ago

Awesome pics! Wish I'd been there. Makes me proud to be a Jayhawk!

David Serven 6 years, 2 months ago

There were some older guys that didn't show up either. How far back did they go to ask people? I was there when Jo Jo White, Vernon Vanoy and Roger Bohnenstiel(sp?) were rocking the place. Wonder where they are now?

Brandon Snook 6 years, 2 months ago

These pictures are amazing and gave me goosebumps...wish I could have been there. I also wish Langford had been there.

oldrocker 6 years, 2 months ago

Really glad I was able to be there...would love to see more of these events in the future. I got to wondering...how many other schools could put on a game like this with so many former and current pros?

Theodore Thadogweadore 6 years, 2 months ago

It was beautiful. Just like the reunion in 1998. What a special program we have.

Thanks to anyone that had a hand in planning and excecuting this wonderful event.

timcampbell 6 years, 2 months ago

What about sherron collins? Was he there?
