Kansas Jayhawks News and Notes 9.26.15

Mildly surprised that I wasn't able to find a single article about the football team.

Kansas Basketball

And so it begins: Freshman Wiggins, Jayhawks set for season | KUsports.com

And basketball season has officially started.  I know I should be excited, but this lengthening of the schedule seems a lot like Christmas Creep to me.  If you think of Late Night as our Black Friday moment, then this new extended time period of practice before it seems like putting Christmas displays in stores the day after Halloween.

Opinion: 7-footer Embiid rare talent among Kansas big men | KUsports.com

It will be interesting to see how Embiid develops.  If he takes off and plays fantastic, we will likely play for a national championship. If he takes a bit of time to put it all together, we could be set up pretty nicely for the next season or two after this one.

Knee-deep in hype, KU’s Andrew Wiggins tries to deflect spotlight - KansasCity.com

This seems par for the course for this kid.  Other than his play on the court, everything about him screams "I'm great, but it's not all about me."

Self: Newcomers’ talents impressive | KUsports.com

I think the comment that gets me the most hyped up is the one about Mason.  Usually when HCBS says we will be pleasantly surprised, we are.
