The school's sports teams wearing crimson and blue are called
the Jayhawks. They participate in the NCAA's Division I-A,
and in the Big XII Conference. In NCAA DI play, the Jayhawks
participate in basketball, baseball, cross country, football,
golf, rowing, soccer (women only), softball, swimming (women
only), tennis (women only), track, and volleyball (women only).
KU Football dates from 1890. While not a national powerhouse
like KU's basketball team, the Jayhawk football team has had
notable alumni including Gale Sayers, a two time all-American.
KU has played in the Orange Bowl twice 1948 and 1968.
The men's basketball team is a perennial national
contender, even though their last national championship was
in 1988. In addition, Allen Fieldhouse is considered one of
the greatest places to play basketball in the nation. Kansas
has counted among its coaches Dr. James Naismith (the inventor
of basketball), Basketball Hall of Fame inductee Phog Allen
(sometimes dubbed "Father of Basketball Coaching"),
and Detroit Pistons coach Larry Brown. Ironically, Naismith
is the only Kansas coach to have a losing record for his tenure
The Jayhawks have won 4 national championships. The 1922 and
1923 championships were retroactively awarded by the Helms
Foundation in 1936. The 1952 and 1988 championships were won
in the NCAA tournament. They have the third most all-time
wins in NCAA history, behind Kentucky and North Carolina.
The coaches most responsible for Kentucky and North Carolina
being ahead of Kansas in wins are Adolph Rupp and Dean Smith,
the two coaches with the most wins in NCAA history. They were
both players for Kansas under Phog Allen.
