    Here it is Jayhawks

    This is a perfect book for all the Kansas University Jayhawkers. It doesn't matter what sport you're interested in because they are all included plus it contains all the trivia you'd ever want to know. Wonder where "Rock Chalk Jayhawk" came from. It's in this book plus the school song and a cheer just for Jayhawkers. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to expand their knowledge of athletics at KU. It's set up in such a way that you don't have to read it cover to cover but once you get it home I think you'll want to.
