A Bit of Phogery

Bill-Johnson-1933

Coach Phog Allen delays the start of the Oklahoma game to 7:30 p.m., purportedly so fans could listen to the end of the K-State/MU game (Missouri was tied for first in the Big Six Conference race with KU and OU.)

Actually, Phog delayed the game to give center Bill Johnson (left) time to fly from Oklahoma, where he had been attending his father’s funeral. Johnson arrived in time and KU won the game 33-29. Kansas State had beaten MU and the Kansas victory gave KU the Big Six Conference Championship.

The conference championship gave Phog nine championships in a twelve year period.
