Kansas' last trip to the Final Four depressed Rex Walters to the point of questioning when, if not why, he was born. "It was like I had the worst timing in the world," the Jayhawk guard said. "If I had been born a year earlier, I would have been playing." Walters spent that 1990-91 season sitting out the year after transferring from Northwestern. Watching from the stands while capacity crowds cheered on his teammates was hard to take.

Kansas guards Adonis Jordan and Rex Walters always liked each other fine. Nice guy but a little quiet, Jordan thought of Walters. Yeah, good guy, Walters thought of Jordan. But when does he sleep? Jordan and Walters became teammates two years ago, the season Jordan was the point guard for the Jayhawk team that reached the 1991 NCAA championship game against Duke. Walters was a redshirt player who had to watch the Final Four from the bench after transferring from Northwestern.

That isn't a chip on Rex Walters' shoulder, it's a full-fledged inferiority complex. If the Kansas guard held any more grudges, he'd need an extra set of arms. In the last two weeks alone, Walters has chided the media for supposedly doubting the Jayhawks as they made their way through the NCAA Midwest Regional and into the Final Four. Said the miffed Walters after Kansas disposed of No.

Officers said they were not sure what Joe Rex Walters was after when he turned into the drive-through chicken restaurant at Beach Boulevard and Ball Road in Anaheim Monday, He had five pursuing police cars only a few feet behind, so it's unlikely he planned to place an order, they said. Nonetheless, he wheeled into the may-I-have-your-order-please lane and encountered what so many customers encounter at such restaurants: a customer ahead in line.
