Ken is always worth reading, but I thought PB readers might find this nugget particularly pleasant.
For those of you whose life is ruled by the RPI, you are missing what Kansas is doing. With an RPI of 112, they are not showing up in anyone's "season ended today" bracket projections. But that's precisely why those projections are of little value two months before the season really ends. I dare say were it not for four bad minutes (the last three against Kansas State and the last one against Missouri), more than a few people would be thinking that KU could challenge Texas for the Big XII title. Their defense is among the best in the land, and though their offense is wildly inconsistent, when it's on, it too is among the best. I don't think it's an exaggeration to say they'll be a top five team next season if everyone stays.
