Ah, the first true game of the season.
But still, Kansas basketball isn't the big topic on campus. No, that belongs to the Kansas football team, also ranked #4 (although they earned their ranking), who will take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys down in Stillwater tomorrow.
But before then, we start our Jayhawk weekend with a basketball game, a home game against the University of Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks.
I will kinda-sorta be here, working on some football-previewness to put up later tonight while jumping in and out of this open thread. Treat this as tonight's open thread for everything basketball, but remember that this isn't football. Bill Self has made it clear that these first games mean very little in the long run of things, and I will be careful not to look too much into any particular performance before the late-November clash with Arizona.
We are going to make the NCAA Tournament. I promise. How we look tonight won't go very far in deciding anything on the season.
