Okay, so most Jayhawk fans show their devotion by buying a shirt or maybe a hat. But one Wichita woman is hooked on her Hawks. And if you happened to catch Coach Bill Self's Pre-Game Speech Monday night, you may have seen her devotion on the locker room floor.
"I'm pretty crimson and blue," said Mary Easton-White. And maybe for some, Easton-White is just a Jayhawk with a crafty side. But for the Jayhawk men's basketball team, she is their un-official floor decorator.
If you saw Bill Self's speech in the team's locker room before the championship game, you may have noticed the Jayhawk on the floor. You can credit Easton-White for the Jayhawk -- it's a traveling Jayhawk hooked rug, and it follows the men to every away game.
It started back in 2002, when Easton-White was reading an article about the Jayhawks. She read there's a Jayhawk in the locker room of Allen Fieldhouse the team assembles around. Then she wanted to know what they do on the road.
