March Madness

The brackets have been set!

If you haven’t seen the brackets yet, let me tell you, the Midwest is by far the hardest, especially if you are Wichita State, the number 1 seed in that region. In order for them to reach the title game in North Texas they have to (potentially) take this path:

Cal Poly/Texas Southern

Kentucky(or Kansas State)

Louisville (unlikely that Louisville doesn’t make it past Manhattan and then St. Louis)

Duke

Arizona (the number 1 seed in the West Region) in the Final Four

Florida/Virginia in the title game

Good luck, Shockers.

Perhaps an even bigger story is the fact the SMU was left out of the tournament completely.

Cool little stat pack – all of Kansas’ Division 1 men’s teams are in the tournament; Kansas, Kansas State, and Wichita State. Second cool stat pack – 7 out of 10 Big 12 teams are in the tournament! Final cool thing – Danny Manning and the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes also made it.

Here’s a link to a printable bracket if you are into that sort of thing.

Good luck to all you bracket players, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

Rock Chalk!

March Madness

I promise I talk about things other than sports.  Really.  It’s just, I like sports!  Since the NCAA tournament is officially concluded, I thought I’d post some pictures of how my friends and I spent the final weekend.

Since KU made it to the Final Four, my boyfriend and I decided that we should go to Lawrence to watch the game.  A bunch of our friends had the same idea so we all met up at Granada Theatre to cheer for the Jayhawks.

Pre-partying before the game against Ohio State.

The game was as stressful as every other game throughout the tournament, but the Jayhawks managed to pull out the win.  I’ll let the pictures tell the rest of the story.

Even Lawrence's finest got in on the high fives!

Thumbs up for the Jayhawks as they advance to the National Championship game!

Being the superstitious people that sports fans are, we all trekked out to Lawrence on Monday to cheer the Jayhawks on as they battled the Wildcats from Kentucky in the national title game.

GO JAYHAWKS!

Excited for the game to start!

After two very stressful and emotional hours, a winner emerged, and, unfortunately, it was not the Jayhawks.  But, the Wildcats played an outstanding game, and the Jayhawks had an incredible season.  Even though KU lost, I am still so proud of the team and all that they accomplished.  I can’t wait for next season!!!

Funny tidbits about pre and post game antics.  One of the bars refused to sell Kentucky Bourbon the night of the game.  And after the game, one fan took it upon himself to erase Kentucky Street from Lawrence.
