10 Iconic March Madness Shirts That We All Need To Appreciate And Try To Understand

These shirts have me confused but extremely excited for the tournament to begin.

10 Iconic March Madness Shirts That We All Need To Appreciate And Try To Understand

It's that time of year again: March Madness. While this time brings lots of basketball binge watching and the sophisticated science behind creating brackets, we should also take a second to appreciate the fan merchandise that hits sporting good stores. A lot of what is created is references to the schools in the tournament (which I find hilarious because I never understand it and it all just sounds silly to me) but there is also a branch of it that is just for your avid basketball loving fan. Therefore, I decided to take a time to appreciate the clever and sassy shirts that our favorite teams have worn (or will wear) proudly during the big dance.


This shirt holds a special place in my heart because I found it to be the greatest saying ever yet I never could bring myself to buy it. (Also - I'll miss you in the tournament this year Badgers)



3. [insert school name] VS. ALL

Well... yeah, guys. That's how the tournament works. If you're good enough, it will be you versus everyone, I guess?

4. Chicago Is Dancin'

this one is just cute because of the pun and usage of the tournaments nickname. I just love it I just want to appreciate it for a second.

5. [insert school name] HERE TO CREATE

I believe these are the new merch for the season but like gosh, what is this. What are we creating? Championships? New records? Help.


Love the little college sayings I guess but is this really the slogan? Do frat boys say this? Who on Earth? I have questions please contact me.


Ah yes, the greatest sacrifice one can make for a city: playing college basketball. Really great, really nice, big fan of this one..

8. JUST NEVER STOP [insert some school's logo in the basketball]

Another new piece arriving to the courts this season. I do appreciate this one a lot because this is what I expect from Nike. This is a real good pep-talk on a shirt.


Honestly, this one is not bad but I just thought it said "pay less" on it. I like this one though because I can just picture a team saying this to the team they verse. Just the greatest comeback.


Alright... Now I am just straight up confused. Who? What? How? Really, I want to know, what are we feeding it? Tennessee, help me understand. Do I have to attend this college to understand it? Let me know, thanks.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
