Actually it is one of the better questions they have ask.

Woo, boy.

The Journal-World is scraping the bottom of the barrel with these "on the street" questions.

I've never noticed it, so I don't really care.

The name of Missouri street should be change to Woo street.

The entire 'rock chalk' thing is lame. And yes I know the story behind it, still lame.

Pretty good list considering half of them are dead. Maybe they are hanging out at the fieldhouse with the Phog? Guess we'll never know. I can't hear a thing with the woo.

I heard Ringo and Danny Little Bear are not fans.

Rachel, dustin and laura must root for Mizzou and be against KU and America.

I heard that Stalin and Mussolini used to Woo.

No. If the people that are paying good money to attend the games want to Woo, then let them Woo to their hearts content. It's not hurting anything with the possible exception of a few snob's sensibilities.

Woo on young'uns!

How long has this wooing be going on?

Why suddenly are some objecting?

Are some trying to take the woo out of going to college?

JackMcKee 2 years, 11 months ago

people have been objecting since the first woo was uttered. I think most people were hoping it would be a passing fad. The woo'ers I've seen all look like people that are there for the socializing and not for the actual game. It's the unfortunate byproduct of being the only successful sports team in the area. I doubt these people can name more than 10 people that have ever worn a Jayhawk jersey.

What do socializers look like?

How are they different from real Jayhawks?

College has some socializing tendencies attached....

I say Jayhawk Basketball is a mammoth social experience.

Wooing represents change...

a person who is at the game just to be seen at the game who doesn't really know or care to know what's going on in the actual game, traditions or anything but their own selfish desire for attention. The people who are only at the games because it is the trendy thing to do. They are the ones I have observed doing the "woo". They typically have bleach blond hair and many have had cosmetic surgery for enhancement of particular features.
