Podcast: Fatigue and Parity keep Kansas atop the Big 12 standings

I’m joined by Fetch to break down what could have been a phenomenal week for the Jayhawks.

NCAA Basketball: Kansas at Kansas State Scott Sewell-USA TODAY Sports

Last week we did an early episode rather than completely miss, so we had 3 games to talk about today. Now that Fetch and I have overcome our own issues, we dive right back in and talk about the strange season that seems to be more and more like we are used to every year.

Topics discussed:

-After watching Trae Young against Kansas, are you buying into the hype?

-Managing Dok’s playing time

-Takeaways from the Kansas win over Texas A&M in the Big 12/SEC Challenge.

-Do we really need the depth of Sam Cunliffe and Silvio De Sousa?

-Does the SEC win in the challenge actually mean anything?

-What stood out from the win at Kansas State?

-Should the zone be a regular thing for this team?

-Road wins and conference-wide fatigue

-Malik Newman has completely turned it around.

-The decline of Lagerald Vick isn’t completely unexpected.

-Mitch Lightfoot - unsung hero.

-The conference race - any changes in when Kansas has sewn it up?

-West Virginia doesn’t look like a serious contender anymore.

-Big 12 teams in the NCAA Tournament

-#OlympicMinute - 5 non-Americans to watch

-Talking the next 4 games.
