When I drove into downtown Kansas City today, one of the first things I saw was a big billboard that read: This is Big 12 Country.

I soon learned those billboards were all around the city. Missouri is gone to the SEC, but there’s no doubt where Kansas City’s loyalties lie.

The people here are proud of the Big 12 men’s basketball tournament, and it’s evident everywhere you go.

The streets around the Sprint Center are buzzing with activity, and restaurants around town welcome visitors to the tournament.

When the Kansas Jayhawks’ bus arrived in town, it was big news that was well covered by the local TV stations.

This tournament has great tradition dating back to the Big Eight days, and people go all out to support it.

There’s always some discussion about moving the tournament around to other cities, but why mess with a good thing? This is where it belongs.
