I had a fantastic time speaking in Topeka, Kansas at Washburn University. I can't thank Garrett Love, President of the student council, and Caley Onek, Vice President, enough.  They made our time in Topeka so great and were so hospitable.  The event raised dollars for Coaches vs Cancer.  It was so nice to see Bill Self, head coach of Kansas basketball, and Frank Martin, head coach of Kansas State basketball.  I had a wonderful time speaking to all the students, their families and residents of Topeka.  Over 1,000 people were in attendance for the event.  It was a super night and my wife and I certainly appreciated the kindness everyone showed us during our stay.

What a Final Four in Indianapolis!  The Final Four weekend is always jammed packed for me with appearances and events and this year was no different.  From Thursday thru Monday I made appearance after appearance along with taping numerous segments for Sportscenter and various ESPN shows.  It is truly one of the BEST weekends in all of sports.  I had a blast doing events for The Hartford Group, Hooters, Sunkist, Anaconda Sports, State Farm plus many others.  The final game between Duke and Butler was truly one of the best college championship games I have ever been a part of.  The passion and emotion both teams competed with was unparalleled.  It was only fitting that the game came down to the final shot in the final seconds of the game.  The entire Butler team and staff should hold their heads high for their valiant effort throughout the entire tournament.  Coach K continues his dynasty with his 4th national title.   The Duke program epitomizes all that is great in college athletics.  It was a very special weekend and a great way to cap off a terrific season in college hoops!
