So many of you made good arguments (in response to my anti-college-sports post) about how athletics help universities. I buy it, though I still don't like how much energy colleges expend on such non-academic activity.

Last Saturday, I did watch - with starstraf, Pooch, Jony and Chelsie, and jamer_31 and his girls - KU trounce all over North Carolina, and I'll be watching as KU plays their final enemy of the year (Memphis, I believe).

Rock Chalk Jayhalk! Go KU! (Click to hear the history of the chant.)

Click the Jayhawk to see the story of the name, "Jayhawk."

(There, am I absolved? *g*)

Best,
Chris
