Kansas basketball coach Bill Self live tweeted the entire 2008 national title victory over Memphis when it re-aired on TV Sunday.

CBS aired the epic Sunday because March Madness isn’t happening this year, and Self hopped onto Twitter to share his thoughts as it happened. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

This was such a cool thing for Self to do to entertain everyone isolating from coronavirus Sunday. It’s worth noting it was the first time he tweeted since May 2019!

I think coming out of Twitter retirement to live tweet the 2008 national title game is absolutely worth it.

That game will forever go down as one of the greatest college basketball games ever played.

Mario Chalmers hitting that shot at the end of the game was absolutely chilling. I remember watching that live and being absolutely stunned.

Derrick Rose was the best player on the floor, but Kansas was such a complete team.

Props to Bill Self for giving us all something to smile about this past Sunday. We need anything and everything we can get to lift our spirits.
