Gameday Breakdown: KU football at No. 4 TCU |
Facing likely the most imposing defense they will see all season, members of the Kansas offense are better off approaching this game as if the pratfall at Iowa State never happened.

How Lonzo Ball quieted the haters with brilliant bounce-back vs. Suns -
A night after Lonzo Ball's disappointing debut against the rabid wolverine Patrick Beverley and the Los Angeles Clippers, Ball got the best gift he could ask for in the situation: the Phoenix Suns' defense. Ball finished with 29 points, 11 rebounds, and nine assists, on 12-of-27 shooting. Ball wasn't a bust after his opening night struggle, nor is he a guaranteed Hall of Famer after this breakout. There are good things and bad things, but overall, you have to be impressed with that stat line, regardless of efficiency or pace.

Now ... the other part of the equation. The universe must have balance, meaning it's only fair to assess and guess on the programs that will be replaced. Below, my modest forecast on the teams that made the 2017 NCAAs but -- due to coaching changes, significant roster turnover or otherwise -- don't figure to be dancing in March.
