I gotta know: which is bigger, the Jayhawk on the b-ball court or the Jayhawk on the football field?
Great question! The Jayhawk on the football field looks smaller, but it is actually the bigger of the two. Football Field Jayhawk is just over 40ft wide, and Basketball Court Jayhawk is just under 30ft wide. We know what you're asking now, "Are those the biggest Jayhawks in the world?" Well, there is plenty of speculation, but we can tell you that in 1983, a student named Grady Phelan got his friends together and used sewn together bed sheets to print a 60-foot wide Jayhawk that got unveiled at a home b-ball game. We have crowned Grady the maker of the world's largest Jayhawk.
