Another reason to swell with pride about our Jayhawks.

  • Since 2001 KU has had a #4 or better seed in the tourney EVERY year, 14 seasons and about to become 15. In fact in 23 of the last 25 tournaments since our tourney streak began we’ve been seeded at least 4th. We had a 6 and an 8th in there besides those.

    Maybe this is why people say we’re always getting upset in the tourney!

    By the way Duke’s streak of #4 or better is only 7 years and they have the 2nd best streak going.

    We are Jayhawk proud, we are Jayhawk nation.

    It is a major accomplishment. Many schools have come and gone and even come again and gone again the last century, the last 15 years… Without being the darlings of national media, or reputedly local AAU coaches, we remain. Without the asymmetric talent stacks, we keep competing and winning more than our share. We have been upset, but not broken; investigated thoroughly, but never found in more than minor violation. We actually do graduate some players. We actually do expect guys to be teammates. We actually do have a legacy to live up to, rather than just a W&L statement to equal. Players actually do develop at our school and program. A President that is not a graduate and not borrowing the buzz of a ring actually did come to pay us his respect and tell us job well done. We actually are the good guys swimming with sharks, despite all our flaws and mistakes. We actually do have a coach that DOES win more with less talent; that DOES get more out of what he has, and that does win a ring even against a team full of ringers, when he has all the pieces of a champion. We actually are at the center of the greatest game ever invented, flawed and imperfect as we are, acting as a force for good, as it globalizes amidst powerful forces seeking to exploit the game for base reasons. Rock Chalk!

  • K State and Mizzou don’t feel that way about us.

    Fizzourians could not tell which side to be on concerning slavery.

    KSU has never appeared the same, since they reputedly became biological warfare researchers.

    And the rich we will always have with us.

    Good must be its own reward, or it will never be done.
