2. Oh, so Sweet!
In the first half of Sweet 16 games Thursday night, Kansas dominated Purdue, Oregon beat Michigan in the final seconds, Gonzaga edged out West Virginia and Xavier upset Arizona. Jayhawk alums Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr. were nervous in the first half when Purdue hled a meager lead, but they quickly got energized after Kansas took control and ran away with the 32-point win. A little earlier, Oregon alum T.J. Ward watched his Ducks also pull out a victory, much to his relief.
3. Puppy love
Can you think of a more adorable holiday to celebrate than National Puppy Day? The Broncos participated by sharing photos of the best Broncos Country pups. Brandon Marshall's mom also shared a photo of her son's pup, Lola, and Brandon McManus revisited some of his first photos of his golden retriever.
4. Best week ever!
Riley Dixon earned best big-brother honors Thursday for taking his little sister to Disney World, which capped an awesome week that began with meeting NFL legend Fran Tarkenton while golfing.
