So what are everyone’s plans for the weekend after last week’s madness? Me? I’m going to nap all day, watch some college football, etc. Maybe grill out, relax and go to my date party.
Oh wait, I can’t do that. I gotta drive five hours to watch Kansas football.
Going to every Oklahoma football game and partying in a new town every other weekend sounds like a thrilling way to spend a semester. And, for the most part, it has been a blast. With that being said, a trip to Lawrence after 11 constant weeks is the toughest way to break out of being burnt out.
Who are the Jayhawks?
A complete pile of garbage masquerading as a college football team.
These guys are just ass, my dudes. I really, really can’t emphasize how bad Kansas is. The 2018 Red-White Spring Game will be more competitive.
The only thing getting me remotely excited for this one is just thinking of this as basketball season catharsis. Come January, we’ll all hate and fear Kansas as is tradition. But for now? They are hardly worth a column.
Last Time We Met: October 29th, 2016 in Norman. OU, 56-3.
Yeah, this game was a stomping. OU scored in some pretty cool ways; Dede Westbrook tore off a 71-yard punt return and Jordan Evans returned an interception for a touchdown after running backwards. Baker Mayfield did Baker Mayfield things, dropping his standard 4 touchdowns and 200+ yards on the Jayhawks.
Honestly, the coolest part of this was the fact it was a rare night game, for some reason.
Kansas Memorial Stadium:
After researching stuff about Kansas’ stadium, I started to wonder if the University of Kansas actually wants people to come to these things. After reading this quote, I was convinced they don’t want anyone here.
Alcohol may be consumed only during a three-hour period before kickoff and during halftime in the designated tailgating area. Consumption of alcoholic beverages must end 30 minutes following the opening kickoff and 15 minutes following the second-half kickoff. Alcoholic beverages must be transported off-campus following the end of the game. -KU Fan Guide, Tailgating Section
C’mon, KU. You are making this overly hard not only for me but for your own damn fans to suffer through your games.
Here is the seating chart. Just buy a cheap ticket and sit wherever.
The bag policy is a solid 12x12x12 so no need to worry about this stadium.
Yeaaaah I’m pretty sure none of y’all are going to this one. That’s and totally fair. So here are some things to do in Norman/OKC that will be WAAAY more worth your time.
- If you are a beer snob, check out the new Prairie taproom in OKC that opened this week. They are a world-class brewing company with one of the best stouts in the world, which sounds really dumb if you don’t care about beer, but take my word for it.
- Jones Assembly in OKC is also a pretty solid place to stay put for an afternoon and check out the games. Definitely on the more expensive end of things, but really damn cool.
- You all know what to do in Norman by now, so I don’t really need to tell you much about what do there. That being said, if you want to impress a girl, take her to the Ben Rector concert. Even if you don’t know who he is or hate his music, just do it. Trust me, she’ll love it.
