CBS Sports Network presents “The Miracles: The 1988 Kansas Jayhawks”, a one-hour documentary recounting the resurrection of the Kansas program under head coach Larry Brown and star player Danny Manning, culminating in winning the 1988 National Championship for the team known as “Danny and the Miracles.”
The one-hour documentary debuts tonight (Monday) at 8:00 p.m.
A clip from the documentary can be viewed here: http://cbsprt.co/WYWqIp.
The documentary explores Kansas’ turbulent 1988 season. The Jayhawks struggled to a 12-8 mid-season record and lost to Oklahoma, their eventual national championship opponent, twice during the regular season. The documentary features interviews with Larry Brown (now coaching at SMU), Manning, current Kansas head coach Bill Self, former Oklahoma head coach Billy Tubbs and 10 of the 12 active players from the 1988 Kansas team.
