"Georgia Tech (2-0) and its option running attack have been sharp so far, ranking second nationally with 56 points per game and third with 339.5 yards rushing. The Jayhawks have shown promise behind sophomore quarterback Jordan Webb, but they'll need more out of their defense moving forward."

Darnell Valentine? Wow...and hey look who's back...Chenowith!  In all seriousness I'm referencing Josh Selby.  I think it's big that he's made the commitment to come back and play.  I think it puts to bed a lot of the media speculation about his feelings in regards to Kansas and his time hear and I think it provides an opportunity for him and the fans to put the whole thing to bed.  Here's hoping he puts together a GREAT NBA career.
