A passion of the KU Memorial Union
  • In the final game of his only season as a Jayhawk basketball player, Forrest “Phog” Allen scores 26 points, a record that will stand for nearly a decade.
  • More than six years after breaking Jim Thorpe’s decathlon record, James Bausch – KU football, basketball, and track star extraordinaire – makes an unexpected visit to his alma mater.
  • Professor Edgar Henry Summerfield Bailey first proposes the cheer that will evolve into the “Rock Chalk, Jayhawk, K.U.” yell.
  • At 1:00 in the afternoon, on cinders still soaked by the previous day’s rain, the first events of the inaugural Kansas Relays get underway in the newly completed Memorial Stadium.
  • The flagship universities of Kansas and Missouri initiate what will become one of the oldest rivalries in NCAA Division IA football. Unfortunately, with MU's seceding from the Big 12 in 2011, the rivalry is on hold.
