These guys again: First-place WVU bringing assertive style to Allen Fieldhouse | Smithology |

The No. 6-ranked Jayhawks are a game back of 10th-ranked West Virginia, coached by the often grouchy and always entertaining Bob Huggins. The Mountaineers (19-4 overall, 8-2 Big 12) already defeated KU in January, when WVU’s guards blew by the Jayhawks on their way to layups and free throws and Kansas had far too many turnovers (22) to win a road game against a top-10 caliber opponent.

Under pressure: Kansas must take care of ball to win |

The key, coach Bill Self said, “is not so much just beating their press, but making them pay for pressing. We didn’t do that at all the first time. We got numbers a few times and didn’t make them pay at all. We didn’t convert. We’d get three-on-one and try to throw a lob and come up empty or drive in there and they’d rotate and take a charge. They made several plays like that especially early that allowed them to take control of the game,” Self added.

Who are the prizes of the Kansas Jayhawks' 2016 recruiting class? - Heartland College Sports | Heartland College Sports

While Kansas will likely be graded as the worst recruiting class in the Big 12 by recruiting websites, I believe that they found some really good, underrated talent. When Kansas has had success in the Mangino era, the recruits that they landed were never top rated players.

Big 12 pre-spring position rankings: QB - Big 12 Blog- ESPN

Ryan Willis showed that he could be David Beaty's long-term QB with a decent true freshman showing. He'll have to fend off classmate Carter Stanley, who redshirted last year. Montell Cozart will give Beaty experience, though he could move to another position, since the Jayhawks should have depth with Deondre Ford and incoming freshmen Tyriek Starks and Dagan Haehn.

Mark it down: West Virginia should be Big 12 favorites - Heartland College Sports | Heartland College Sports

With the Oklahoma loss to Kansas State, and Kansas still looking more than vulnerable throughout the Big 12 schedule, WVU should now be considered the favorites to win the Big 12 regular season title. Obviously, a matchup with Kansas in Lawrence this week will be one to watch. If the Mountaineers can win that game it will put them in pole position to take the conference.

Poll Attacks: One South Carolina writer really loves South Carolina -

There's nothing wrong with ranking South Carolina. But there's no way to justify having the Gamecocks 12th on a ballot -- ahead of such teams as Miami, Oregon and Louisville. That's a bad look. And it's an especially bad look when the voter with that ballot also happens to work in ... you guessed it ... South Carolina.
