I get what Davis trying to say, but his analysis is a little loose at the seams, considering Rush committed mid-late Summer and that KU did indeed win the regular season league title last year.
7. Kansas: Will youth be served in Lawrence?
I'm surprised how many preseason publications have left the Jayhawks out of their top 25. True, having at least two freshmen in the starting lineup isn't exactly a recipe for a Big 12 title, but coach Bill Self already had arguably the nation's best freshman class before he added dynamic forward Brandon Rush in the late spring. And besides, Kansas relied on a trio of experienced seniors last year and still failed to win the league before losing in the NCAA first round to Bucknell. My advice to the rest of the league: Beat the Jayhawks now because they could be plenty scary come late February.
