More love for the Baby Jays from Andy Katz

Thanks to PB commenter Lawler for the head's up. Katz waxes complimentary on our beloved Baby Jayhawks today

Kansas: The Jayhawks are rolling. They swept through Nebraska on the road and Iowa State at home to stay within one game of first-place Texas in the Big 12. Kansas once had the look of a bubble team and now is looking at a high NCAA seed. Bill Self has done his best coaching job in his brief KU tenure.

After two more wins in the next week, we'll be 10-0 over our last 10 and people will start trumping up the matchup with Texas.

Whitlock Gushes About the Jayhawks

The KC Star's much-maligned Jason Whitlock may have finally gotten over his love affair with Roy Williams. It appears that the baby Jayhawks have warmed his icy heart, and he couldn't help but give 'em some love. In his recent editorial, Jayhawks Will Elevate the Big 12, he gushes:

"Yes, I called the six-loss Jayhawks national-title contenders. And I'm not overreacting to Monday's thumping of the awful Texas Tech Red Raiders. Kansas has played one bad game - a home loss to Kansas State - since losing to St. Joseph's on Dec. 6."

Whitlock also prognosticates that KU may raise the Big 12 to the level of 'power conference,' rivaling the Big 10 - and do it this season.

Welcome home, Jason.
