Thank you Max Falkenstein

Tonight is Senior Night at KU…one of the more special Senior Night’s in the country. This year, in addition to losing seniors Moody, Vinson, and Hawkins, KU loses one of the greats in college broadcasting: Max Falkenstein. Max, a fan favorite for 60 years, has been calling KU games longer than anyone in the country.

To put this in perspective Max covered games coached by KU’s second basketball coach Dr. Phog Allen. Max was calling KU games for 10 years prior to Wilt arriving. Max has covered every game played in Allen Fieldhouse. 1946 – 2006…it’s hard to belive.

Tonight Max had an honorary banner hung next to Lovette, Vaugn, Woodard and Chamberlain. It is sad to see this KU legend move on.

Here’s the final Channel 6 piece as he says goodbye to 60 years of broadcasting KU football and basketball

Farewell Seniors and Max

(btw… John Roberts (not the SC Justice) is Christian Moody)

    Ok, I cried. But that won’t surprise anyone.

    I hung out with Max the other night… even at 82 he’s throwing in the towel too early.
