It's a fact folks ;) You can look it up. It's in the book -- the one with everything left in and nothing left out . . .

I love that there are simply NO alternate facts when it comes to the magic of the barn......

:-)

LOVE the place (I can even look back fondly -- maybe -- at those HOT, HUMID August days pulling cards to enroll for classes. Yes, showing my age.....but I don't care. I LOVE the place!)

Getting there and hoping they still had a least one card for every class you wanted to take, the frustration and disappointment when they didn't!

Oh, yeah, Wheaty, I be feeling ya, sister!

I was so glad when KU switched over to online sign up. Much less "fun", and so grateful for it!

RCJHKU!

Hot & humid indeed! The bball floor had the Kansas map back then. (I like the Jayhawk we have now much more.) [I'm in the foreground -- not the one with a finger in his nose!]

seriously, this was one of the best comebacks in a long time. 2:45 left and 14 down...a "rally"


"Swarming Flock of Jayhawks Storm Mountaineers in OT"

It may have happened before, but it was the first time in my life I ever saw a team come back from 14 down with under 3 to go.

"Sandstorm"?
We got "StormHawks", baby!

I didn't find anything that meets the exact criteria of KU's comeback over WVU (down 14, under 3 min left), but I did find these:

UK came back from 31 down (to LSU with just over 15 min remaining in the second half)
www.nytimes.com/1994/02/16/sports/basket...es-record-rally.html

Texas A&M down 12 with under 50 seconds left to beat Northern Iowa in the NCAA tournament (pretty amazing!)

Illinois was own 15 with 4 minutes left, but came back to beat Arizona (this was to go to the Final 4)
thebiglead.com/2015/03/26/illinois-90-ar...-10-years-ago-today/

And this list is pretty cool:

I always remember going to Hoch Auditorium (pre-fire) for this stuff. Am I older than you guys or something?

YES.....enough cards...AND/OR at a DECENT time -- for those Frosh, soph days of completing pre-reqs and pre-major requirements!!!!

Seems like the "S" group always got slotted in a poor spot.....too early in the enrollment process so they HELD BACK cards for other days in the week......or at the end when EVERYTHING was taken!!!!

I have a recurring dream where I am searching the KU campus (and Lawrence) far and wide looking for a "timetable"...yes, My children, there was a time when NOTHING was on line or electronic.....so I could start working on my schedule. In the "dream," I am old and looking for a poli sci class to finish "something."

You were in the "S" group too, eh? It was like a mad dash up there and totally insane.

It'll feel better when it stops hurting

Ok, horrible story here....

As an advertising major (school of journalism) we had to go get approval from the J-School to take certain classes. They checked to make sure that you had the proper prerequisites, etc. before you were approved to take certain classes.

Anyway, sophomore year, and I'm starting to take classes in my actual major, and I'm nervously going to the J-School for my stamp of approval. Waiting in line, the approval was given by a somewhat elderly woman who was either the dean of the school or someone at a similar level. Being my first time there, I was a little nervous that she'd find something wrong in my paperwork and that I'd be summarily tossed out of the classes I needed.

Finally, it's my turn to hand over the paperwork, and she asks me some simple question.....but she's looking intently over my shoulder. I turn to see what's up, and there's nothing there. Turning back, I realize that the woman had a lazy eye, and now she's looking at me like I'm some kind of idiot who's not paying her the respectful attention she deserves.

I got my papers signed and stamped and got the hell out of there. For the rest of my time at KU, whenever I had to get her to sign/approve things, I always told myself to just go in and stare at the spot right BETWEEN her eyes so I didn't break eye contact. I also enjoyed watching underclassmen looking over their shoulders making the same rookie error I made in my first interaction.

This one goes to 11 12 13!

O.K., I'm asking for the cone of silence here, and maybe some "client/attorney privilege" as well:

During summer registration (see photo above) a fellow grad student friend would have kids (as we call 18 & 19 year-olds today) sign-in on a tablet before pulling a punch card. After a while I notice that he only had the young (pretty) women :kiss: sign-in. I asked why it wasn't important to have the guys sign-in and he explained that signing-in wasn't necessary to get a card. "So why have a sign-in?" :huh:

He slid the tablet in front of me and told me to collect the signatures. I had everyone sign-in for a few minutes until I figured it out. ;) In the early hours of the morning with the heat and humidity in full swing, females never wore undergarments (bras) and, inevitably, a very loose top. To sign-in they had to lean waaaay over the table and didn't much care about us in front of them as long as they left with a card. B)

We would probably be expelled nowadays . . . :ohmy:
