1 Day Until Kansas Football: The Jayhawks Are Coming

New, 2 comments

What a wonderful phrase!

NCAA Football: Nicholls State at Kansas Amy Kontras-USA TODAY Sports

99 days ago... wait... erm... 107 days ago, we began our third annual attempt to count down 100 days to KU football. This offseason definitely threw us for a loop - twice! - but here we are. We made it!

Heading into the second year of the Les Miles era, the Jayhawks are still in a rebuilding mode, but optimism still abounds. However, you can only write about optimism so much.

Two years ago, I gave you “The Charge of the ‘Hawk Brigade.” Last year, with so much optimism, I took a more light-hearted outlook with “A Visit From Les Miles.”

This year, inspired by coach Brent Dearmon and the great Alfred Yankovic, and with apologies to Elton John, Tim Rice, the Walt Disney Company, and Timon & Pumba, I present to you “The Jayhawks Are Coming” sung to the tune of “Hakuna Matata.”

The Jayhawks are coming!

What a wonderful phrase

The Jayhawks are coming!

Ain’t no passing craze

.

It means more touchdowns

For the rest of our days

It’s our Saturday communique

The Jayhawks are coming!

.

The Jayhawks are coming?

Yeah! It’s our motto!

What’s a motto?

Nothing! What’s a matta with you?

.

You know, kid, these four words will solve all your problems.

That’s right! Take Mike for example.

Why, when he was a young Jayhawk

When I was a young Jay-haaaaaawk!

Very nice!

Thanks!

He found his football team had a certain veneer

They would end at the bottom after every year

I’m a sensitive fan, though I may seem coy

And it hurt that my friends only cheered

For Roy

.

And oh, the shame

(He was ashamed!)

Thought of changin’ my name

(Oh, what’s in a name?)

And I almost upchucked

(How did you feel?)

Every time that they -

Hey Mike! Not in front of the kids!

Oh…. sorry.
