Most of the preseason buzz has centered around Kentucky and Duke for the upcoming season, but according to one writer, the Kansas Jayhawks will not only win the national championship, they’ll go undefeated. Yes, KC Kingdom’s Chris Taylor predicts Bill Self’s squad will go 40-0 and “mow over the competition,” which includes Kentucky, Villanova, Michigan State, Kansas State, and Tennessee.
“No disrespect to any of the Jayhawks foes this year, but I personally do not see a team that can run with Kansas, especially when substitutions will be coming at a rapid pace,” Taylor writes. “The first five off the bench can give each of these teams a run for their money, if not win it by themselves.”
“Anything less than a National Championship will be a failure,” he concludes.
But, you know, no pressure or anything. As a reminder, the Jayhawks will travel to Rupp for the SEC/Big 12 Challenge on January 26.
