The Jayhawks football head coach David Beaty has recently inked a contract for former Waratah-Mayfield District Cricket Club fast bowling sensation Burt Cockley to join them on a 2-year deal, reportedly worth in excess of 7,000USD.Cockley will fill the wide-receiver vacancy left by Chase Harrell in the most recent off-season.The name "Jayhawks" comes from the Kansas Jayhawker freedom fighter and anti-slavery movement during the Bleeding Kansas era of the American Civil War.The term became part of the lexicon of the Missouri-Kansas border in about 1858, during the Kansas territorial period.The term was used to describe militant bands nominally associated with the free-state cause.One early Kansas history contained this succinct characterization of the jayhawkers: Confederated at first for defense against pro-slavery outrages, but ultimately falling more or less completely into the vocation of robbers and assassins, they have received the name – whatever its origin may be – of jayhawkers.Another historian of the territorial period described the jayhawkers as bands of men that were willing to fight, kill, and rob for a variety of motives that included defense against pro-slavery "Border Ruffians", abolition, driving pro-slavery settlers from their claims of land, revenge, and/or plunder and personal profit.Over time, proud of their state's contributions to the end of slavery and the preservation of the Union, Kansans embraced the "Jayhawker" term.The term came to be applied to people or items related to Kansas.When the University of Kansas fielded their first football team in 1890, like many Universities at that time, they had no official mascot.They used many different independent mascots, including a pig.
