    116. How It Works: The Gear at KU

    116. How It Works: The Gear at KU

    How does a player convey swag? Is it hitting a fadeaway jumper over a defender? A running back bowling over a defensive back for a score? Maybe launching a 400 foot bomb over the fence. Sometimes, it just comes down to the jersey on your back. Before that jersey made it to the court or field, it was meticulously planned, from the first stitch to the final fold before being put into game action.
    This is a special How It Works edition of the Jayhawker Podcast featuring the gear of KU.

Classy edition

Wayne hosts classy conversations that give you an inside look at KU players and staff. His experience on the court adds credibility and he doesn’t waste time with childish old boy nonsense that other similar podcasts do. Appreciate this one.
