So far today I've had about three cups of coffee, worked out at Stone and Barbell club, gotten ready for work, eaten lunch, written my stuff for the 5 and 5:30 shows, edited and sent it back, shot another quick 10 second hit for our marketing department, watched the end of the Ole Miss Wisconsin game and then I sat around for a minute and now I'm writing my blog. Oh and we're still more than 6 hours away from tipoff between Kansas and Western Kentucky.
It's the story of a reporter's life and this time of year it's the story of every basketball player's life: hurry up and wait. Odds are Kevin Young has gotten that Rubik's cube done about 10 times already.
One thing you won't have to wait for is coverage from this tournament. Starting on our 4pm show on the CW we'll have updates from Kansas City. Then we'll have updates in the 5 and 5:30 news blocks as well as in the 5:30 sports. And of course, you can follow Grant and I on Twitter at @grantmeech12 and @jennbates12 for in game updates and naturally witty banter and comments.
So, keep yourself occupied until 8:50 or so when the Jayhawks finally tip off and then wait for our coverage after the late CBS game finishes up on KWCH 12!
