Go Jayhawks
17 August 2015 | by lawkansasSee all my reviews

Well, I attended KU Law School from 1969 to 1972, and I was really looking forward to seeing this movie. We bought the DVD as we could not find "Jayhawkers" on TV, even On Demand.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the movie as we are die hard KU fans...basketball and every other sport as well. Lawrence is a unique town, and this movie captures the atmosphere perfectly...back then. Nowadays, we get back there every chance we get.

It is hard to get seats to see KU play at Allen Field House, so this movie is kind of a good substitute. The cast of this movie is superb, and the actor who played Wilt did a great job.
