Athletic director Jeff Long said Friday night "we expected a clean version of the show."

Long said in a statement the school fell short of providing a "family atmosphere" during the annual kickoff for the school's beloved basketball program.

The rowdy performance came with the Jayhawks already facing a high-level NCAA infractions case that includes a charge against Hall of Fame coach Bill Self.
