That is really cool.
Since this the Internet, something snarky is required, so: pics or it never happened.
Here is a photo of the actual equipment Naismith used to do eye exams for all incoming freshmen until 1937. It is on display in the KU Museum at the entrance to Allen Fieldhouse. My grandfather was a freshman in 1929. It's as close as I can get...
Omaha is cyclone territory. I think youre actually a cyclone fan at heart, but have been a fair weather fan of Kansas. Now that ISU is becoming a prominent name in college ball I fully expect you to jump back on the ISU bandwagon.
My grandfather got his incoming freshman eye exam from Dr. James Naismith himself back in the late 1920s so sorry, no fairweather KU fan here. We were inbred long before I was born. And yes, I do know several ISU fans/grads here in Omaha but there is also a surprisingly large number of KU grads here as well. But I wouldn't go so far as to call Omaha a Cyclone town.
Assuming they are waiting on the College Gameday schedule to be released at this point, and then it will be out. Should be within the week.
You have to think that there is a very good shot that KU at ISU will host College Gameday since it isn't a Big Monday game. I am really looking forward to ESPN releasing the College Gameday schedule for this reason!
