"Expert Picks" interesting to read but how much do they mean to you?

Matt Tait

For the most part, it seems that fans of Kansas University basketball are a pretty superstitious bunch.

Blind Bracket pick 'em contest opens eyes, offers different look at NCAA Tournament field

Matt Tait

Having trouble filling out your bracket? Maybe this can help. I stumbled upon it the other day via Twitter — where else? — and I've probably tried it four or five different times since discovering it. In a word, it's awesome. But in greater detail, it's the Wall Street Journal's ...

KU coaching staff already comfortable entering Year 2

Matt Tait
