Jayhawks to wear Retro '70s uniforms Saturday vs. West Virginia
So it seems like Kansas assistant Jerrance Howard was the first to unofficially break the news about KU's newest throwback uniform day. Because why wouldn't he be?
Howard will be the first to tell you that he has the best style of anyone on the team and his shoe collection and fancy game day attire has been talked about in various circles around here for years.
But for this next game — 3 p.m. Saturday vs. West Virginia at Allen Fieldhouse — KU will be throwing it back to a time before Howard was even born.
It's a step back into the 1970s this weekend, with the 2018-19 Jayhawks wearing a classic and clean look that names like Bud Stallworth, Darnell Valentine, Donnie Von Moore, Roger Morningstar and dozens of other Jayhawks will remember fondly from their playing days.
KU unleashed a first glimpse of the retro uniforms on its Twitter feed earlier today and Howard began sharing his excitement over the new white threads Thursday night.
Saturday's game will mark the second home game in a row that features the Jayhawks in alternate uniforms, as KU wore the Harlem Renaissance inspired gear during last weekend's win over Oklahoma State in honor of Black History Month.
Here's a quick look at what's coming tomorrow followed by a few flashbacks (in black and white images, sadly) of some of those 1970s uniforms wore by the Jayhawks of the past.
