Seeing Orange Today

Posted by Fred on January 3, 2008


Was your New Year good?  My present for the new year is the chance to see the Jayhawks in a post-January 1 bowl game for the first time ever (although a Division I playoff would have been a better present for everyone except CL Keedy).  KU hasn’t played in one of the big four bowls since the 1969 Orange Bowl, and hasn’t been to any kind of bowl game since Fort Worth in 2005.  It’s hard being a KU fan in Hokie country, a place where the Times-Dispatch features an article on Hokie Bird wine and prints Go Hokies editorials, but I’ve persevered.  Hopefully the lilliputian Todd Reesing and corpulent Mark Mangino can emulate the Mountaineers and pull off the upset.
