Rock Chalk Jayhawks!!

We may have lost, but it's still thanks to us y'all are here at all. Yes, it's true: March Madness, the Final Four, even the NBA would not exist if it weren't for John Naismith and his successor at the University of Kansas, the legendary Phog Allen. And don't you forget it!!



For just a hint of Allen's enormous influence, consider the history of two other college programs, North Carolina and Kentucky. Both schools...play in buildings named for their greatest coaches. Just as KU plays in Allen Field House, the Kentucky Wildcats plays in Rupp Arena, named after Adolph Rupp, while North Carolina's Tarheels play in a dome named for the legendary Dean Smith...[And] Rupp and Smith both played college ball, and learned coaching, under Phog Allen at Kansas.

Go here and learn more about why hating on the Kansas Jayhawks means hating on mom, apple pie and yes, basketball.

Heh

Still in mourning here, but, yes you are so right. And yet most of the basketball country thinks nothing exists between the mountain ranges. :P
