CrazyVirgo readers, I'd like to introduce a fairly regular contributor to my blog - The Kansas Fan. As it's the most wonderful time of the year, The Kansas Fan will be on the blog discussing the greatest team in the world. Without further adieu, The Kansas Fan discusses the following ridiculous posting by ESPN:
You have to cut these people some slack. I'm sure to ESPN and the outside world, it must seem as if Baylor could beat anyone in the Big XII, the country, or the universe after toppling Kansas. Hell, these people probably think Baylor could stand on top of each other's shoulders and touch the sun after toppling Kansas. This, of course, is because Planet Earth knows Kansas for two things: 1) Smashing basketball teams into tiny pieces on its way to title after title; and 2) Populating every known record book and hall of fame with good looking gents from the greatest college campus in America.
However, what Planet Earth does not know is that, though we've won more Big 8/12 Tournament titles than any other school, we view the exercise as a novelty; an adorable way to spend the time between March 1 and the NCAA Tournament, given that polishing one's Big XII Conference Championship trophy can not possibly take 18 full days. What Planet Earth does not know is that we probably question whether even to send a full squad to this rec league tournament. What Planet Earth does not know is that while every other school in America uses these tournaments to try to collect more hardware, we have so many trophies and awards, that if we won the thing we'd probably melt it down to be smelted into new trophy cases for real trophies.
What Planet Earth does not know is that they just handed Bill Self a bomb kit filled with 13 angry human basketball machines and 7 days to prepare for the NCAA Tournament.
