RIP Pepper Rodgers

  • Former Kansas football coach Pepper Rodgers passed away yesterday at the age of 88.

    Rodgers was the head coach of KU from 1967-1970. In his second season in 1968, Rodgers led Kansas to its last conference championship in football and lost to Penn St. in the Orange Bowl that season. Rodgers went 20-22 in his four seasons at Kansas.

  • I remember that Orange Bowl. We were ahead by one and Penn St. went for a two point conversion and failed. We were flagged for 12 men on the field. Penn St. went for two again and made it to win the game by one point. I was at a friend’s house in Prairie Village and was so pissed off, I drove back to Lawrence.

  • @Hawk69 lol good times 🙂
