Join us in discussing the field, the brackets, and all the wonderfulness that is March Madness.

The Kansas Jayhawks have appeared in 44 total NCAA Tournaments, including 26 in a row (about to be 27).  In fact, the last time KU did not go dancing, "Lost in Your Eyes" by Debbie Gibson was the #1 song and "Lean on Me" was the #1 movie in theaters.  It was March of 1989.

Anyway, Kansas has seen 14 Finals Fours and won three championships while compiling an overall 97-43 record.  In his career, Bill Self is 36-15 in the Tournament, 26-10 while at Kansas.

Selection Sunday

When: 4:30 PM Central Time

Talk about the draw, the regional, and the tournament as a whole.

Once the brackets are out, consider the following questions:

How far will the Jayhawks advance?  What do you like about our draw?  What do you hate about our draw?

How many Sweet 16 teams will the Big 12 get?

How many #1 seeds will make the Final Four?

Who is over-seeded?

Who is under-seeded?

What's your first-round upset special?  Unfortunately, Norfolk State is not an option this year.  Neither is La Salle.

Who's your Cinderella?
