KU haters got their wish
The Kansas City Star
Hmmm, couldn’t find much about the KU-Kentucky basketball game in today’s Star, but it appears the Jayhawks fell short in Monday’s NCAA championship game.
Congratulations to the Kansas athletes on an incredible accomplishment.
As for all those KU haters out there - yes, I know they exist in Columbia, Manhattan, etc. - at least you got your wish:
Kansas is just the SECOND best basketball team this year in the country, thanks to Monday’s defeat.
Still, that’s better than being knocked out in the first round (Missouri) or the second round (Kansas State) in the tournament.
Finally, my favorite quotation from Jason Hancock’s Star story today about Columbia fans cheering on Kentucky’s victory:
“For me, it’s not really the players or even the school. It’s the Kansas fans. They’re irrational and obnoxious,” said Jared King, a Missouri alum. “We live, die and breathe Missouri athletics, but as soon as we lose, we focus on rooting against Kansas.”
Read that last sentence again, and you’ll see why it brings a smile to the faces of KU fans.
