UPDATED 10/8, 3:15 p.m. ET: Snoop addressed his Kansas performance on Tuesday's episode of The Howard Stern Show. "They freaked out cause I brought stripper poles, bitches and money guns," he said.

University of Kansas' annual "Late Night in the Phog" featured Snoop Dogg performing his hits in front of the college basketball fans. Snoop also brought pole dancers and a money gun to the show, which probably didn't fit with the G-rated standards event organizers had in mind.
Kansas' PR men and conservative sports fans didn't really dig the sight of Snoop Dogg performing "Gin and Juice" as a dancer busted a split. Director of Athletics Jeff Long issued a public apology for the explicit fete.
"We made it clear to the entertainers’ managers that we expected a clean version of the show and took additional steps to communicate to our fans, including moving the artist to the final act of the evening, to ensure that no basketball activities would be missed if anyone did not want to stay for his show," Long's statement said. "I take full responsibility for not thoroughly vetting all the details of the performance and offer my personal apology to those who were offended. We strive to create a family atmosphere at Kansas and fell short of that this evening."
College basketball analyst Seth Greenberg said he also wasn't too happy with the show. He called Snoop's performance an "absolute embarrassment" that looked even worse as the basketball program is being investigated for its alleged involvement in a pay-for-play scheme.
Snoop Dogg himself hasn't commented.
