Oh, it is on now. Or at least it soon will be.
In a sign that WNIT fever is growing in the city, Lawrence Mayor Mike Dever made a wager with Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio.
For those of you who haven’t quite read through all of your WNIT program, Tampa is home to the University of South Florida. In case you really haven’t read your program, South Florida is KU’s opponent in Saturday’s WNIT National Championship game at Allen Fieldhouse on Saturday.
Dever and Iorio made their friendly wager: The loser has to wear the other team's colors during a day at work.
So, green and gold if the Bulls of South Florida win, and of course, Crimson and Blue, if the 'Hawks win.
