FORT WORTH, Texas — Day two in Fort Worth was another day of meetings, practice and fun for the University of Kansas football team.
After an 8:45 a.m. wake-up call, the Jayhawks held position meetings in the spacious meeting rooms at the Renaissance Hotel. The squad then boarded buses for Burleson High School where the team held a two-hour workout.
Several players addressed media from Kansas and the Fort Worth area before the Jayhawks returned to the team hotel where players picked up gifts courtesy of the Fort Worth Bowl. Included in the gift bag was a seven-inch travel DVD player, in addition to a commemorative Fort Worth Bowl watch, sweatshirt and t-shirt.
After a couple hours of free time, the travel party headed to Billy Bob’s Texas for reception for both teams where the team enjoyed a barbeque dinner.
“I was glad to be able to visit Billy Bob’s, the nation’s No. 1 honky tonk and mecca of Texas Country music, where legends like George Strait, Pat Green and Jason Boland have played,” senior Cullen Holmoka said.
Following the dinner, entertainment provided by Darryl the Hypnotist. Freshman wide receiver Micah Brown was the highlight of the hypnotist show after cracking up everyone with his impersonation of head coach Mark Mangino.
When asked if he knew what he had been doing, Brown simply said “what happened?”
