So, just how would you capture the euphoria of victory -- or, god forbid, the agony of defeat -- in just a few words?
As the Jayhawks get ready for their big game against North Carolina in the Final Four, we're giving everyone a chance to submit their suggested headlines for Sunday morning's paper.
Some advice: Be clever, descriptive and, of course, concise. Remember: Your optimistic words just might end up being prophetic.
For now, we'll stick with taking ideas for the national semifinal, the one pitting Bill Self and the No. 1-seeded Jayhawks against Roy Williams and his No. 1-seeded Tar Heels.
But keep in mind that a KU win Saturday in San Antonio would open up a new list of suggestions - for headlines following the national title game, to be contested Monday night.
So put on your editor's visor, grab a thesaurus and get to work. We'll get things started with one suggestion for a main headline and what we in the newspaper business call a subhead or a deck:
KU sends Roy's Heels home from Final Four
Now, it's your turn. Post your headlines in the comments below.
