Kansas Jayhawks Tickets for Sale

Though it is assumed that all of the football talent plays in the South Division in the Big 12, there are quite a few promising teams in the North Division and the Kansas Jayhawks are one of them. The team finished 7-5 overall and 4-4 in conference play in 2008 and made a trip to the Insight Bowl where they destroyed Minnesota 42-21.

The 2009 Kansas Jayhawks have the 25th spot in the ESPN Power Rankings this preseason and hope that they can build on that with its powerful offensive weapons. Quarterback Todd Reesing is a threat to throw and run, but he prefers to throw. His two targets this season will be Dezmon Briscoe and Kerry Meier. Running back Jake Sharp is better than his numbers, but that could remain to be seen as the poor play on the offensive line has continued to stifle his numbers and put Reesing's scrambling ability on display.

The defense has similar issues to the offense, a line that is far from dominant. The team also has three new starting linebackers and a secondary that struggled against the best in the Big 12 last season (of course every secondary in the nation struggled against the Big 12's amazing roster of quartebacks). If the defense finds someway to get it together then this team should in the North Division.

Kansas Jayhawks tickets are available through OnlineSeats for games throughout the 2009 college football season. Check the seating chart and at Memorial Stadium and the ticket inventory for the Jayhawks conference and non-conference schedule and enjoy your Big 12 football live.

The University of Kansas colors, crimson and blue, used since the early 1890s, are not the colors originally adopted by the university Board of Regents in the 1860s. The regents had decided to adopt the Michigan colors, maize and sky blue.

Maize and blue were used at early oratorical meets, and they may have been used when Kansas competed in rowing in the middle 1880s. However, when football came upon the scene in 1890, the student backers wanted to use Harvard crimson as the athletic color in honor of Col. John J. McCook, a Harvard man, who had given money for an athletic field at KU. That field ran east and west in the proximity of where the north bowl of Memorial Stadium stands on the Kansas campus today.

Until that time, Kansas football games were played at Central Park on Massachusetts Street in downtown Lawrence. Some Yale men were on the faculty, and they demanded that Yale blue be included. The rooters rallied forth to follow crimson and blue on their team. No one fought to retain the original colors, and the vivid deeper tone crimson and blue became generally used. Finally, in May 1896, the KU Athletic Board adopted crimson and blue as the official team colors for the university.

The History of the Jayhawk

Each spring, as the University of Kansas graduates a new class of Jayhawks, the origin of its name comes into question. It's known that the term, "Jayhawk", was used as early as 1849. In that year, a party of pioneers crossing what is today Nebraska, called themselves "The Jayhawkers of '49." They are believed to have taken the name from a combination of two birds which are familiar in the West -- the hawk and the blue jay. Whether these pioneers were the first to call themselves Jayhawkers is not known. (later they did discover Death Valley in California.)

One member of the party, John B. Colton, later remembered first hearing the word in Platte River in 1849, long before the Kansas Territory was established. Colton said when the Argonauts returned to the East, the word continued to be used.

The word "Jayhawk" first was used in present day Kansas about 1858. It was associated with robbing, looting and general lawlessness. During the Civil War, however, it took a new meaning.
