John Agitation

Ramdeen Ramjattan, known as John Agitation, was a Trinidadian comedian and storyteller. He was a graduate of the Progressive Educational Institute and served in the Trinidad and Tobago Civil Service, he was the first comedian in the Commonwealth of Nations to win an election. In 1951, at 24, Ramdeen was introduced to the Trinbagonian national audience by Landy de Montbrun, a leading local comic at the time, he told a joke nervous that he was crossing the boundary of taste. But the crowd was elated. "They were happy to see a fella," Agitation remarked. From there, Agitation became a regular on Radio Trinidad the Horace James Comedy Hour, Sunday Serenade and the Aunty Kay Children's Show; the latter was sponsored by Bermudez Biscuit Company Limited for decades. He performed in many venues in Trinidad and Tobago as the headline performer to sold-out shows. Throughout his life he was an avid hunter, as his home was in the rural, still-forested area of Cumuto, with a large population of agouti and brocket deer.

He farmed oranges, tangelos and grapefruit on his 10-acre estate. He was the first candidate to run on a United National Congress ticket: he contested and won a 1989 by-election in the Sangre Grande Regional Corporation for the Guaico-Cumuto district, thus becoming the first comedian in the Commonwealth of Nations to win an election. Agi, as he was known in Trinbago, lived on his public service pension, but still performed until his death in 2018. In 2003, Ramdeen "John Agitation" Ramjattan was awarded the Hummingbird Medal by the government of Trinidad and Tobago, for his more than five-decade-long work to preserve Trinbagonian and Caribbean folklore via comedic storytelling.

Wichita State Shockers football

The Wichita State Shockers football team was the NCAA Division I football program of Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas. The Shockers fielded a team from 1897 to 1986, they played their home games at Cessna Stadium and were members of the Missouri Valley Conference until the program was discontinued. The team was known as Fairmount from its first season in 1897 to 1925 and Wichita from 1926 through 1963; the first official football game played by Wichita State was in 1897, when they were known as Fairmount, under the coaching of T. H. Morrison. Fairmount defeated Wichita High School, now known as Wichita East, by a score of 12–4 in the only game played that year. In the 1905 season, the Coleman Company set up temporary gas-powered lighting for a night game against Cooper College, it was the first night football game played west of the Mississippi River. Fairmount won the game 24–0. On December 25, 1905, Fairmount played a game against the Washburn Ichabods using a set of experimental rules.

The game was officiated by Washburn head coach John H. Outland; the experiment was considered a failure. Outland commented, "It seems to me that the distance required in three downs would eliminate touchdowns, except through fakes or flukes." The Los Angeles Times reported that there was much kicking and that the game was considered much safer than regular play, but that the new rule was not "conducive to the sport."In his history of the sport of football, David M. Nelson concluded that "the first forward passes were thrown at the end of the 1905 season in a game between Fairmount and Washburn colleges in Kansas." According to Nelson, Washburn completed three passes, Fairmount completed two. On October 2, 1970, a plane crashed, carrying about half of the football team on their way to play a game against Utah State University. 31 people were killed. The game was canceled, the Utah State football team held a memorial service at the stadium where the game was to have been played; when Willie Jeffries became Wichita State’s head coach in 1979, he became the first African-American head coach of a Division I-A football program.

Former T. C. Williams High School football coach Herman Boone, whose hiring was featured in the film Remember the Titans, compared Jeffries’s hiring to that of Jackie Robinson signing with the Brooklyn Dodgers. On December 2, 1986, Wichita State President Warren Armstrong announced that the university would no longer sponsor football due to the financial strain the program places on the university. On May 16, 2009 the Wichita State University alumni association held an all football players reunion at Cessna Stadium. In 1992, a study was done on Cessna Stadium to comply with I-A football standards, it was shown. In 1997, the cost was cited at $11 million to restart the football program and three other women's sports. In 1998, an advisory committee at Wichita State recommended reinstating the football program at Wichita State after a 15-month study for $70,000. In 2006, Wichita Mayor Carlos Mayans proposed to use public funds to restart the football program at Wichita State, he would subsequently drop the plan weeks later.

In 2012, an attempt was made to begin a club-level football team at Wichita State with hopes of reviving the football program, though no official endorsement was given by the university. Wichita State's 2017 move to the American Athletic Conference leaves it as the only full member of the conference which does not play football. However, the American has 12 football-playing schools, as Navy is an associate member for football only. In 2020, the American will have 11 football-playing schools, after UConn leaves to become a full member of the Big East and independent in football. Wichita State won fourteen conference titles; the records below only includes games while a member of the conference and does not include games against teams listed below considered non-conference games. The Shockers had an 0 -- 3 record. Longest field goal – Joe Williams 67 yards vs Southern Illinois October 21, 1978 Ackerman Island.
