North end of Memorial Stadium exterior decorated with banners of KU football greats
A sharp new feature of the outside wall of the north end of Memorial Stadium almost is been completed. The wall is decorated with banners made from action photos of a dozen Kansas football greats.
Dorance Armstrong is the only current player with a banner. The 11 recent former players, 10 from the Mark Mangino era: Dezmon Briscoe, Anthony Collins, Charles Gordon, Chris Harris, Ben Heeney, Kerry Meier, Todd Reesing, Nick Reid, JaCorey Shepherd, Darrell Stuckey and Aqib Talib. Shepherd was recruited to Kansas when Turner Gill was head coach, played one season for Gill at wide receiver, then was moved to cornerback by Charlie Weis.
As of Monday afternoon, only the Reesing banner had not gone up on the wall.
The wall also features the three football players whose jerseys were retired by Kansas: Ray Evans, John Hadl and Gale Sayers.
