Thanks again to Mic's Jayhawk Blog for scouting out this excellent interview with the oft-forgotten Rodrick Stewart who reminds us that our Jayhawks will be ridiculously athletic this year. I think it will be our most athletic team of all time.
6. Kansas has 10 freshmen and sophomores on the roster, how different will this young team look from last year's veteran team?
"In a way it's going to be better because the team is going to be more athletic. We're quicker so there will be a lot of run and gun and fast breaks. We're not very experienced but everybody is willing to step up and play a role. We have great chemistry. We realize it's not going to be one man to get the job done. Every player is equal."
Based on the comments the players have made, I get the real sense that every player wasn't equal last year. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but I do think it explains a lot of our crippling chemistry issues that only got worse as the year continued.
