“I couldn’t be more disappointed, more upset, more frustrated,” a despondent KU coach Bonnie Henrickson said after the loss. “We have always embraced our match-up and rivalry with them, and we didn’t show up and just let them smack us around. I still can’t believe that’s how we started the game.”

What if Andrew Wiggins never came to Kansas? | Tale of the Tait | KUsports.com

All of this got me thinking.... What if Wiggins never came to Kansas? What if he picked Florida State or Kentucky or North Carolina last May and left the Jayhawks to fend for themselves with the roster they already had? First of all, KU would have been just fine, even without the steady dose of highlight-reel dunks, long arms on defense and lightning fast strides in transition.

But would Bill Self's bottom line have remained the same? Would the players who absorbed Wiggins' minutes — and it likely would have been several of them — have been able to produce the same results?

If you still aren’t impressed, consider this: In the last 10 seasons, Syracuse, Duke, Kentucky, and UConn have combined to win nine conference championships. Every Kansas fan could put a statue of Bill Self in their front yard and I’d still think they’re taking him for granted.

“I think I talk a little more than that (Wilt character in movie). I think I’m a lot funnier than that,” Wesley rebutted with a big smile. “Coach came up to me afterward and said he was proud of me and congratulated me. That meant a lot.”

Spring Primer: A look at KU's still-deep RB corps | Tale of the Tait | KUsports.com

We'll have plenty of time to dive deeper into each position group when spring ball arrives and throughout the spring and summer, but, for now, let's look briefly at a few of the most intriguing positions heading into Year 3 of the Charlie Weis era. We'll start with running back, where the Jayhawks, despite losing stud James Sims, remain stacked with depth, talent and options.

Rock Chalk Park will join Oregon, Auburn and Arkansas at the collegiate level, and the surface at Icahn Stadium in New York to rank among the nation's elite track and field facilities. A coup in having a world-class facility like Rock Chalk Park has already been seen, as Kansas was selected to host its first NCAA West Preliminary regional meet May 26-28, 2016, which will feature the top-48 student-athletes in each event west of the Mississippi River.
