What is your most memorable KU sporting event?

I have two.  I will never forget when we unleashed years of frustration on the gridiron against Nebraska at home in 2007.   We won 76-39.  After winning on the road at KSU, at CU, and at Texas AM, we knew we had something special in the making.  The other event was easily the 2008 Final Four.  Beating Carolina, winning the title in dramatic fashion, and then taking over Rita’s on the River Walk is about as good as it gets.  The only thing better would have been to be able to walk out of the arena onto Mass Street!

Last week, we found out Heath’s hidden talent. Next week, find out who Heath’s favorite professor at KU was, and read the advice he has for today’s students.  Email us at
