Keegan believes in the 'Hawks

I'm glad that somebody agrees with me about this team, which I believe will be much better than last year's team was at the end of last year by the end of this year, dig? Keegan says KU will start climbing in the polls. Like most Keegan yarns, this one is a must read:

And don't blame the panel. Christian Moody is the leading returning scorer and rebounder. Once word spreads about 6-foot-1 Mario Chalmers' dunk over 6-foot-8 Micah Downs at Saturday's coaches' clinic, and once C.J. Giles shows the world what he's shown in practice, the Jayhawks will crack the back end of the Top 25 and should keep climbing.

Leaps and bounds people - this years team will improve leaps and bounds over the course of the season. And with Arizona and UConn both hobbled by injuries, KU could break into the top 25 earlier rather than later.

By the way, I think KU will go 2 and 1 in Maui. Look at the bracket and tell me I'm wrong.
