OCTOBER MADNESS!

Fans flock to fieldhouse for first look at Jayhawks

Allen Fieldhouse was filled to capacity on Friday as the 25th annual Late Night in the Phog once again prepared Jayhawk fans for the upcoming season. Fans had plenty to cheer, from silly skits to a look at the men’s and women’s teams in scrimmage.

Allen Fieldhouse filled up with fans Friday night for yet another start to the basketball season celebrated in Late Night fashion.

The KU men’s and women’s basketball teams officially began their practices and got their first chance to entertain a fieldhouse crowd — with the skits, videos and musical numbers that were part of the 25th annual Late Night in the Phog followed by scrimmage games.

Jason Stubbs and Larry Frederick both make the pilgrimage to Allen Fieldhouse each year for the event and are excited about the potential of this 2009-2010 season.

“We’re excited to start another season, preseason No. 1, and looking for good things,” Frederick said.

Fans young and old, from near and far, were able to attend the show for the cost of a donated can of food.

Fans say that’s a small price to pay to see their basketball teams for the first time. “It’s really loud and everyone gets into it,” said Laura Henry. “It gets us really pumped up for the basketball season.”

The event was televised on ESPN as part of its Late Night coverage around the country.

Kind of an "OMG" reaction to see the photo of Brady Drunkenstar sitting all alone on the bench (that has to hurt, really bad), while all the participants from the Thug Wars prance around the Court. The difference? Brady = caught by Highway Patrol (real police). Thug Wars Fighters = protected by KU Police (pretend police).

KU Police = Shameful

What erudite, balanced commenters here. We know you're a bunch of emasculated humanities majors, but you don't have to put it on display here for people who actually like sports and their Alma mater.
