Many Royals Review readers are Kansas Jayhawk fans, understandably so considering Kansas City’s proximity to Lawrence. Indeed, our wonderful Editor in Chief is a KU grad and Jayhawk fan.
However, it is not Max that is writing this, but me, Matt, the Ames-born son of two Iowans with two Master’s degrees from Iowa State with another half dozen degrees floating around on my mom’s side of the family alone. That’s why you are getting an Iowa State-centric featured image, especially considering that they won the Big 12 tournament—again, I might add—but this time against those Jayhawks.
Hey, at least the Jayhawks can revel in their regular season domination of the league agai...oh. Right. Ah-hm. Excuse me. But what good is fandom if it can’t be used for a little gloating every once in a while?
As you might have surmised from the title of this article and from the time of year again, it’s March Madness. Once again, Royals Review is hosting our annual March Madness bracket.

- BRONZE MEDAL (tie): Eluvio_Vale by 1_October, AF Dawg by Royalsblues, and kmcmc2010 by kmartincmc

I only ask that, if you are a commenter here at Royals Review and your ESPN screen name is not clearly similar to your Royals Review screen name, you name your bracket something that can make it clear to everyone whose bracket yours is.
