Toughest team goes to the toughest bracket. North Carolina will be a heck of a test, and the KU-UNC meetings are always great at NCAA time. Then comes Michigan. We are certainly going to be toughened up by the time we get to Elite Eight. I think these are much better match-ups on a national stage than MIssouri or Wichita would be. Last team standing wins the championship--these early contests will force the Jayhawks to raise their game a bit more each new round of play. I disagree with the reporter's premise.
We gotta get past Western Kentucky first. This team really scares me and may be the sleeper of the tourney. They are a much tougher team than TCU and for sure WKU is better now than Northern Iowa, Bucknell and Bradley were when they beat us in the tournament. I am sure Coach Self and staff are perusing the tapes of WKU very, very carefully.
There is nothing scary about this team. Look at their schedule. They have accomplished nothing other than going on a lucky run at the end of their conference tournament. They are a fluke.
good point. we've been sideswiped before and more than once.
"Kansas must first defeat Western Kentucky — not a problem"
Nothing is possible for those who write about it. They can be suitably incommunicado hoping no one remembers.
"When I coached, I always wanted to know how we could lose. what do we have to do to keep from losing. Then there's only one alternative and that's to win."
You definitely lose if you think the other team isn't showing up.
I predict KU will be out early this year. Maybe even in the second round. Sorry.
Don't be--your prediction is as irrelevant as everyone else's.
I predict consumer1 will make many more dumb and ill informed posts this year. Sorry.
Something crazy tells me we will be the first no. 1 seed to lose to a 16 seed.
My money is Gonzaga being the first 1 seed to lose even though they have the easiest path.
KU definitely has the toughest two and three game if higher seeds win at least to that point. Come on, UNC was a very young team and that team has grown up. A lot. The seed represents the entire season and if we play them, that game will represent the UNC that is a very good "vintage UNC" team right now. Michigan's seed represents their late season slide. Of course if KU and Michigan win into a matchup, the Michigan (ask Indiana which Michigan team they just got) team that was ranked #1 may very well be the team that KU gets. KU should't face this caliber of teams before the sweet 16 or the elite 8. Maybe not even until the Final Four.
However, if KU shows up and plays to their capability, they should handle these two teams anyway. If not, well, there's always next year.
I must say my confidence in this years team has me alittle worried. EJ just has not proven that he can be a consistent point gaurd. To much up and down play and Naadir just dosen't have the experience in the NCAA Tournament. Teams with really good point gaurds always seem to make the big runs when it come to March Madness. I hope I'm wrong, would love to see KU at least make it to the Sweet 16. Good Luck this weekend Hawks!!
