The last time Kansas wasn't Big XII Champions...

… George Bush was in his first term as president.

… Usher’s “Yeah” was the No. 1 song (LISTEN HERE).

… Shrek 2 was the No. 1 movie.

… The final season of Friends aired.

… Jason Sudeikis hadn’t joined the cast of SNL yet.

… LeBron James had just begun his rookie year in the NBA.

… Nobody tweeted, but everybody wanted to be in your Top 8. 

… The most popular phone was the Nokia 2600.

… Wayne Simien was the leading scorer.

… Kansas advanced to the Elite 8.

… Bill Self was in his first season as head coach.

… and Tyler Self was 9.

I just realized that out of context, the entirety of Lawrence, Kansas probably appears to be extremely devout Catholics.

“You going to Mass tonight?”

“You have to go to Mass tonight.”

“I don’t care if you have to walk. Get to Mass.”

“I didn’t get back from Mass until like 4 this morning.”

When in reality we’re talking about Massachusetts Street, where people are crazy and drunk after we win basketball games.

An Ode To Allen Fieldhouse

Twas the minute before tip-off, when all through the gym

Not a player was shooting, untouched were the rims.

The students were standing in their crimson and blue

In hopes that the dunks soon would ring true.

With a blue checkered tie, with such knowledge and skill

We knew in a moment, it must be Coach Bill.

More rapid than eagles his players they came,

And he whistled and shouted and called them by name!

Now Lucas!

Now Mari!

Now Perry and Frank!

On Embiid!

On Tarik!

On Selden and Wiggs!

We sprang to our feet, on our feet we did cheer!

And the players were dancing, their happiness clear.

That’s when we heard Coach yell, with all of his might

“Rock Chalk to all, and to all a good night!”

T-Rob says no.

ICYMI, Thomas Robinson had a monster block the other night:

And we were all like:

But then we watched it again

… and we thought that we have seen this before.

In fact, we saw this same block two years ago:

We see what you did there, Mr. Robinson.
