The dreaded 'Kansas Rectangle'

The Onion has a classic dig on Kansas. Be sure to check it out.

For the record, this fair state of mine is not flat. If you want flat, go to Texas. My favorite line from the piece:
“Acquaintances of Corcoran say they warned him that once he entered the Rectangle, he would never make it back out, but he did not listen, and was drawn there to investigate tales of cheap tuition.”

The University of Kansas: Orange Bowl and NCAA Men’s Basketball National Champions (!)

Glorious! Just glorious! There was rolling thunder here in Lawrence throughout the game and it certainly seemed a good omen. Turns out, it was. I would like to say thank you to Jay Bilas, as he is the only one of the national broadcasters covering the game last night that picked KU to win. Way to recognize, Jay. Honorable mention goes to Coach Bobby Knight for saying it was too close to call. What a spectacular year it has been for KU athletics. I’m glad I got the chance to be in Lawrence to listen to the festivities erupt from the comfort of my couch. I’m too old to run down the middle of the street now, but I’m glad there were 40,000 others that weren’t! Rock Chalk Jayhawk, go KU!
