NCAA Tournament 2012, North Carolina Vs. Kansas: Opposition March Madness Fans Talk, Don't Kill Each Other

Never have I felt prouder of the old corporate overlords: Today, ahead of their Elite Eight matchup, a blogger from Kansas and a blogger from North Carolina have avoided the more homicidal strains of March Madness and successfully conducted a very polite interview with each other. Here's the Kansas-blogger side. This might be a 2012 NCAA Tournament first, if the way the people I know have behaved is any indication.

From the tone of Kansas's postgame interviews, you'd have thought that not only had N.C. State won, but the Wolfpack had stolen their girlfriends and kicked their pets, as well.

From there they go on to talk about Thomas Robinson's legacy as a Jayhawk, Tyshawn Taylor's play down the stretch, and whether the Wolfpack actually stole anybody's girlfriend. (REPORT: None, as of yet.)

As a wishy-washy blogging type, I always appreciate collegial stuff like this. After one of these teams has lost—well, the tone might deteriorate a little at Carolina March or Rock Chalk Talk. It's understandable.
