Congratulations Jayhawks

I’m not a college basketball fan but since I grew up in Kansas, I felt compelled to watch KU versus Memphis State. Wow, what a game. When they were down 9 with two minutes left I thought it was over. Not only did they tie it up at the buzzer for overtime but then they dominated the OT.

This victory would be sweeter for me if Kansas wasn’t the rival of the school I would have gone to had I stayed in the state. Head to head, I would always root for the Wildcats over the Jayhawks but I’m pleased to see the championship go back to my home state.

  1. I dug Lawrence so much when I went out there in October 2006 that it made me rethink the Midwest as a place to live.

  2. As a long time UNC fan, I have to take my hat of to KU. That was a good old-fashioned butt kicking you guys put on us. Congratulations on the championship, it’s good to see Bill Self get his first title.

  3. Dan, just imagine that you had been there when William S. Burroughs was alive and living in Lawrence.
