Darnell Jackson's letter to KU fans

Darnell,I came to Lawrence five years ago, and I could not begin to understand this Rock Calk Jayhawk stuff. I had the opportunity to attend KU's first trip to Canada in Vancouver four years ago. Now watching those boys, Simien, Miles and Lankford playing in a High School gym, and feeling the frenzy I started to get it. But the thing I remember most was this big eyed, big boy with an even bigger grin having the time of his life and ok with being bumped off the end of the bleacher after every time-out huddle. I had more fun watching you grow and become MY favorite Jaykawk. It was a big day for me watching you carry the trophy through the crowd after winning the National Championship! Congratulations and Good Luck!
