I always see tons of KU licensed merchandise at the Goodwill. Even then it's way over priced.

" A while back I heard some student saying "KU better win a title while I'm in school". 1952, 1988, 2008. That's a pretty big spread, kid. The vast majority of schools have never won a title and never will." Rara

All of this. Perspective isn't a strong suit for college students.

I had Roy taking us out at the elite 8. Should have known better. No morels yet but folks are finding them.

True, jonas. I'm so disgusted with the sense of entitlement in this town that I sometimes want KU to lose. I started going to games in about 1975, and believe me, it was a huge acomplishment to even get into the tournament. A while back I heard some student saying "KU better win a title while I'm in school". 1952, 1988, 2008. That's a pretty big spread, kid. The vast majority of schools have never won a title and never will.

KU will beat Ohio State, Kentucky will be Louisville, which is going to be one exciting game for Kentuckians. I have all but Louisv in the final four, with KU winning over KY.
Honestly, I didn't put much thought into it, I just thought it was fun to say KY (or UK) v KU. KUKUKYchoo.

It has also been quite entertaining to watch us go through North Carolina State and North Carolina, while living in Wilmington, North Carolina, about 2 hours from Raleigh and Chapel Hill. Hahaha.

Didn't get around to doing a bracket this year. If I had, I probably would have had them losing around the Elite 8 to UNC. As Jaywalker and O-Bob said above, we exceeded my realistic expectations for this year when we made it past the first weekend (and when we lost the chance to rematch with Mizzou and hopefully crush their dreams there). I'm satisfied, and everything the last week, and next week, is just icing on the cake.

BTW, if you want to have some fun picking on poor schmoes, say something like that, (that you're satisfied with 16 or 8), in the espn forums. I did, thinking nothing of it, and got descended upon by the KU spoiled-debutante squad, and called a traitor and a terrible fan. I laughed at them, and expressed regret that they were such angry people.

Easier board to troll on than here. It's like taking candy from a baby.

Strange how so many can be avid KU fans and never gone to college a day in their lives

What a narrow minded view. Believe me, the Athletics people don't care as long as you keep buying the licensed merchandise.

Indyan had them rolling down the bracket in a landslide. Strange how so many can be avid KU fans and never gone to college a day in their lives.

As far as Siam. Thad Motta has no game, but he would make a good looking woman. Will that work, Coach Eustachy?

I had them in the Final Four, really, got my bracket right here, have them playing Kentucky in the final. Babboy doesn't do brackets because he doesn't have a team and now not even a coach

I"m with Bob on this one. After getting to the Great 8 I stopped fretting. Nothing but smiles since tip off w/ UNC, win or lose this team has surpassed all my expectations. Gotta say, sure was nice Sunday night just watching and not fretting the outcome. Gonna be the same Saturday. Love my 'Hawks!

I had them driving home from Omaha thanks to Georgetown missed on both counts. I had Georgetown knocking off NC. Had Syracuse knocking off Louisville in the final game. Split my picks half and half by reasoning and who I disliked the least. couldn't put Kentucky or MU in the final game and just didn't have faith in KU making it...even this far.

I do not do brackets. My view on that is sort of thing is like drinking on New Year's eve. Everyone else is doing it so I am not.. (okay the drinking issue stopped years ago but it used to be a bad hobby)

I think basketball is just something to get you baseball which is just something to pass time until football starts. In my opinion, KU fans have their priorities backwards as football is king in American sports.....

But, to answer the question,, I figured that Self might go all the way because he finally has a superstar in Thomas Robinson that is cool dude and works hard unlike the divas he has had in the past......

I like that Robinson kid. Billion times cooler than the Morris thugs.

Totally unrelated question that might me better posed on "Sound Off"

My last ammo order is apparently coming on stripper clips. Will that leave my gun all glittery?

Autie copied my bracket. I though it would be a fun game in the championship after our dud in the Big 12 Tournament. No one ever plays by my rules though. My west and east sections of the bracket are all jacked up! Looks like someone spilled coffee all over my bracket. Oh darn. You can't read it now and will never know how horrible it was.

I was a quarter way done filling out the first round of the bracket and was so conflicted having to label 32 entities as losers that I just broke down and stopped.

I had Kansas beating Missouri in the Championship game, with Kentucky and Kansas State rounding out the four.

I had a final four of Roy, Cal, Boeheim, & Izzo. Instead, it's Bill, Cal, Thad & Pitino. Out of any of 'em, I'd pick Roy first on the playground. Then Bill, prolly, but he's sporting a gut lately & might wear down early. Does Motta got game?

I just watch the games. I don't know their names, or their stats, or what they had for supper. I don't yell at the TV when there is a bad call by the ref or feel all warm and fuzzy when they win.

Yeah.

I always got picked last on the playground.

I had KU beating Baylor in the final game. That was a bit optimistic, eh? Now if KState could have beaten the Boeheim boys...oh, never mind.

They're doing a lot better than I expected, that's for sure.

I don't do college basketball brackets. Those are for hicks. But, ah thank Granny might a' still be in the runn'in.

My opine? Kentucky. Dirty is as dirty does. That basketball program, like a fish, stinks from the head down. And, Kentucky stinks.

Hey, on some kinda good news I found this link from a while back 'bout Lawrence and photogs if can post it. It is pretty good. :
