Well, It's Over

and there are no Kansas teams left playing basketball this year.

Some thoughts:

Total World Domination

Just a thought: most companies try to protect their brand names to keep them from becoming generic. But if "google" is ruled generic, how does Google loose? I mean, if you're going to google something, where are you going to start? Bing?

Well, at least K-State is still in it.

You have no idea how painful that is to write.

One Down


All year, every game, KU has always played down to to the opposition. And it's going to come back to bite them before we're done, certain prognosticators notwithstanding.

It will be a morality play, just like Memphis can't hit free throws turned out to be in 2008.

My bracket, and my heart, say KU wins it all (it's sort of mandatory for KU alums), but if I had to bet, my wallet would say it ends next week.

And I'd never be happier to lose a bet.

Who Woulda Thunk?

Bobby Knight and I go way back — I was at Indiana University from 1973-79, including the great undefeated 1975-6 team featuring Scott May and Quinn Buckner. Over the years I've had the chance to notice that when he's coaching he's not particularly stable.

However, over the last year Knight and Brent Musburger telecast Big XII basketball games, mostly those involving KU and/or K-State. I've also heard him on the Mike & Mike radio show on my drive to work.

When he's not coaching, Bobby Knight is smart, witty, thoughtful, and doesn't just talk to fill the air. It's amazing.

Of course, I have no way of knowing what he's like off-camera, but it's a considerable improvement over the old Knight.

Maybe he should have started out as an announcer.
