    Congratulations to the Panthers of UNI!

    I was going to make this a PM but we might as well discuss it "out in the open" As some of you may know, ChipR is a University of Northern Iowa alumn, and I suspect he's partying his brains out, right about now.

    9 seed beats #1 Kansas? Well done, my friend. Very well done. Of course you do realize that everybody's brackets are irreparably screwed up!

    I ate my bracket.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I have it on good authority that he ran around the dining room at BW3s this afternoon at the Redszone gathering when his team won that game. I really wish I had it on video, LOL

    Congrats again Chip!

    Congrats Chip! Hopefully they can knock off Michigan State or Maryland in their next game.

    Biggest basketball news there since landing Eldon Miller.

    I wonder who Eldon will be rooting for if UNI ends up playing the #2 seed in that region?

    Congrats to UNI and Chip! UNI's win definitely showed that you don't need extreme athleticism to play great team defense. Great win for that program.

    that was an unbelievable 3, not the shot necessarily but taking it rather than pulling it back out to run some clock. My wife is also a UNI grad and called me from Hawaii right after that shot
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    That shot was as Raferty would say "Onions!". What a shot! Congrats Chip. I didn't realize you were a NIU alum. That had to make your day,week and year.
