    I just ran across this article... just another reason to despise anything from Kentucky...

    Kentucky fans riot after defeat of Louisville in Final Four

    Sharp contrast between "class" and "cats", IMHO... Go Jayhawks!

    wow, afaik we did not tear up the town like that^! just A LOT of drunk people, including myself. even the cops were high-fiving everyone!

    i hope it's going to be a good game. there will be some key matchups and foul trouble will be HUGE, as any game. win or lose, i am so proud of them. they've exceeded so many expectations already and these last couple of weeks feel like a bonus. after all, 2nd in the nation is pretty good too!

    RCJH!!

    Self wins Naismith Coach of the Year

    NEW ORLEANS Kansas head coach Bill Self was named the*2012 Naismith Mens College Basketball Coach of the Year, the Atlanta Tipoff Club announced on*Sunday. This accolade makes Kansas the only university to have three different Naismith Mens*College Coach of the Year winners, as Self joins 1988 winner Larry Brown and 1997 winner Roy*Williams. Self edged out finalists Jim Boeheim (Syracuse), John Calipari (Kentucky) and Frank*Haith (Missouri) to win the most prestigious national award presented annually to the top mens*college basketball coach.

    Self was selected by the Atlanta Tipoff Clubs National Voting Academy, comprised of leading*basketball journalists, coaches and administrators from around the country. The academy*based its criteria on coaching performances this season. The vote was tabulated and certified*by the accounting firm of Habif, Arogeti & Wynne, LLP. HA&W is the largest independent*accounting firm in Georgia and one of the top 50 firms in the United States.*

    Bill has done a remarkable coaching job this season and deserves all the accolades that come*his way, said Eric Oberman, executive director of the Atlanta Tipoff Club. Theres always*something special about adding another chapter of Kansas basketball to the Naismith Awards*family.

    In his ninth season at Kansas, Self led the Jayhawks to a 31-7 record, including a perfect 16-0*at home, leading them to a record eighth consecutive regular season Big 12 title and earning his*second consecutive Big 12 Coach of the Year award. He owns a 269-52 record at the school*and a 476-157 overall career record, including a national championship with the Jayhawks in*2008.

    This is a terrific honor. When you think of postseason awards, anything that has [James]*Nasmiths name in front of it is a huge award and certainly Im very proud of this, Self said. It is*a reflection of how our team performed all year long. There are so many good coaches out there*to choose from but I am honored they picked me.

    Entering the 2012 NCAA Mens Division I tournament as a No. 2 seed in the Midwest region, the Jayhawks defeated No. 1 seed North Carolina and No. 2 seed Ohio State to reach their second NCAA Championship game in four years.

    I'm hoping Kansas wins, but honestly? I don't think they can compete with Kentucky. Kentucky looks like a machine on the court. Kansas has been pretty inconsistent lately.

    i agree they have been inconsistent as of late but they have also found ways to overcome that. yeah it may be in the last few minutes/seconds, but all anyone will remember will be the fact that we won these games, not so much how close they were

    i am very nervous knowing that there is a good possibility we will lose. i can accept losing to the best team in the nation. all i ask is that KU plays their best too, because when they do.. the unexpected happens
