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

NCAA Basketball: Big 12 Championship-Kansas vs TCU Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas Jayhawks have appeared in 45 total NCAA Tournaments, including 27 in a row (about to be 28). 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.

Those dark, dark days were in March of 1989.

Anyway, Kansas has seen 14 Finals Fours and won three championships while compiling an overall 100-44 record. In his career, Bill Self is 39-16 in the Tournament, 29-11 while at Kansas.

Selection Sunday

When: 4:30 PM Central Time

TV: CBS

Use this thread to 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, I doubt Norfolk State will be an option this year.

Who's your Cinderella?
