    He's still blabbering on about how great his team is right now.

    Funny thing is that he keeps referring to Arkansas as Ar-Kansas.

    EDIT: He addressed the Michigan situation and said he's not going to talk about jobs right now. It's not productive for his team. Then someone asked him a question about the Michigan job and he said, again, "I'm not going to talk about jobs, so don't ask about it."

    Well, in southern Kansas and in some parts of Oklahoma, it's not the Arkansas River, it's the Ar-Kansas River. Say it like the state and someone will quickly correct you, so maybe he grew up with that dialect or simply got used to it during his time with the Pokes.

    I've only ever referred to the river as the Arkansas, never the Ar-Kansas.

    Sorry if this helps out you, but: UT is not from Wichita.

    Ar-Kansas River.

    Not Arkansaw River.

    You say Arkansaw River here in Kansas, people look at you like you just shit your pants.

    That's so weird.

    And now, I'm not from Kansas, but I am from Oklahoma.

    The Kansaw Jayhawks just haven't been the same since Roy Williams left.

    Oddly, Arkansas and Kansas are Native American words that are not related in any way.

    Might be one of the best lines of the week (outside any that might come via the KU-MU thread).

    Meh. It was a nice place to grow up, and it's a nice place to which I can return to see the fam.
