March Preview

College athletics is a continuous unfolding story, the realest version of reality television. It can not be formulated and the emotions are unrehearsed and undeniable. It is March. The stage has been set, the characters are developed, and the plot is reaching culmination. It is time for the climax, for post season play.

Jayhawk Illustrated magazine celebrates the seniors and anticipates the tournaments in the March issue of Jayhawk Illustrated magazine. Selected features will also be published online.

If you're not a subscriber, it's too late to sign up and begin your subscription with this issue. (Although you may be able to pick up a copy at the pre-game parties at the Big 12 Tournament.) Here's a preview of some of the features in the March issue.

March goes far beyond scores and outcomes. For a lot of us, March is trying to figure out how you're going to schedule those Thursday and Friday afternoon work obligations around the first-round games you just have to watch. March means running the office pool for the eighth year in a row and swearing someone else will do it next year, also for the eighth year in a row.

It's a chance at glory for the young men that play – whether that means cutting down the nets on a Monday night in April, or being this year's Gonzaga or Valparaiso and making it to the second weekend.

March means watching kids smile so hard their faces hurt when they know their team gets to play one more game. It also means watching others cry when they know that their season – and for most, their career – is over.
