Where do you begin upon looking at this picture of Kansas Jayhawks Coach Bill Self? Well, when you recruited Deron Williams and the rest of the guys who brought the Illini to the 2005 National title game, you can wear whatever shirt you want; no matter how Jersey Shore/ecto cooler in solid rayon form/homosexual environmentalist fund-raiser the shirt looks.

We’ve had a lot of posts on college basketball, but we’ve never devoted a whole post to a shirt first.

Kansas Jayhawks Look to Rock-Chalk Their Way to Houston

Choke artists. If there were two words to describe the Kansas Jayhawks under coach Bill Self those two may be it. The Jayhawks have ruined many brackets through the years from their first round losses to Bucknell and Bradley to their did-that-really-just-happen second round exit to Northern Iowa last year.

That’s why, when Kansas only led by four at halftime against 16th-seeded Boston University, people everywhere held their breath. KU, with the exception of the 2008 national title, has been known to choke in tourney time and what’s scary for those Jayhawk fans is that the Regional matchups look like the perfect trap games.

Starting with their Friday night game against Atlantic-10 postseason champion Richmond, Kansas could get to Houston by playing two Regional games against double-digit seeds. No number one seed has anything close to that easy but that’s not to say that Richmond is totally incapable.
