Thank you, Kansas.
Your second round elimination by Northern Iowa caused a massive paper-shredding campaign across the country, as countless millions discarded their brackets in a feeble, mindless effort that reminded us of how you played for much of Saturday.
Oh, Kansas. We've been disappointed by you before, but everything seemed too good for us not to give a fleeting thought that the school that gave us Kurt Warner would also deliver one of the biggest upsets in recent NCAA Tournament history.
We cry with you, Kansas, but rest assured you're not alone in the disappointment bracket. Nine other teams, coaches, and players share in your misery.
As do our brackets.
