Kansas writer predicts Jayhawks will go undefeated

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.

    Looks like he’s gonna be wrong. KU comes to Rupp. No way they “run over” Cats. They escaped last time. The odds will be very much against them this time around.

      Definitely. UK will probably be a 5 point favorite. Very unlikely we lose to them again.

    This is gonna be a fun season! Kansas UNC and Duke all in the regular season, plus Tennessee and Florida in conference play!

    Fans make outlandish predictions like this at UK all the time but I thought Sports writers were usually use less hyperbole. We will see. It’s a long season and staying undefeated can get tougher as the season goes along.

    Not really sure UK fans are in any position to make fun of this… we did the same thing with Julius Randles team and lost the second game of the season. And we all know the 38-1 team

    Kansas will be very good and its very possible they beat us at home

      They may very well beat us, but there is absolutely no way this Kansas team goes 40-0

      At UK is the game KU is most likely to lose. Also, UK is the favorite to win it all. That article was hilarious.

      Indeed. There’s no way they go 40-0. They always lose in the big 12 tourney and the second wknd of the NCAAs

      Yep. This is a classic choke team for Kansas. They are a bunch of punks who have no chemistry. They get reject transfers. Meanwhile we get stand up guys who are all Americans like Travis. Go Cats.

      The big question is, will this Kansas team lose in the round of 32, or the sweet 16?

    To say they are more likely to go undefeated than to lose a game is laughable.

    That’s one of the most ignorant things I’ve ever read. UK will be a 4-5 point favorite against KU at least. We are deeper and more talented. Not to mention UK is the favorite to win it all. Not KU.

    Even if they do somehow beat us in Rupp, they will drop a game or two to a subpar team throughout the year.
    Every team does it and Kansas does it more than most.

      Yep. And they also choke more than most. This guy is guaranteeing a national title! Lol. KU only has 3 of those. For a so called elite program that’s pathetic.

      Kansas has been the Elite 8 the last two tourneys, so they’re overdue for a round of 32, or sweet 16 exit.

    They choke every year.

    Kansas is a joke. The only thing they’ll win is the overrated big 12. This guy acts like they are loaded but their best players are transfers. Not to mention they are women beating scum bags. Self is the dirtiest coach in the game. Kansas is the new Louisville. They just get away with it.

      The big 12 has won 1 national title in the last 30 seasons!!!! That would be bad for one school but that’s their whole conference. Lol lol lol

    As Kentucky learned, the hardest part of going 40-0 isn’t any opponent. It’s stuff like the weight of history when you get close or complacency when the guys have gone since forever without the sting of a loss. 40-0 may not be impossible, but it’s the most difficult feat in modern sports that anyone seriously attempts.

    Anytime you say “Championship or bust” you’re setting yourself up for failure

    Love this! Put all the pressure on them and let UK creep in under the radar. UK will make’em pay!

    Well, they are in the weakest “Power 5” conference, so they have that going for them. But we all know how many times KU has rolled into the tourney undefeated or with only 1 loss, and choked like a greedy dog on a chicken bone.

    I lool at KUs roster and I dont see it. I feel KU is a top 10 team but not a legit top 5. 1st if there big man gets into foul trouble they are done and they dont have Frank Mason or Gummy Bear Graham to save them this year.

    The teams that KU beat were the teams where certain players didnt pan out. This year our Roster is 100% complete and full. No way KU hangs with UK mid season at Rupp.

    Locker room game prep hanging material for any team that plays them. It will make subpar teams play like they’re on a Cinderella run and teams that are KU’s equal or better set out to just plain disrespect them on the score board.

    Stop it. Do NOT feed the Troll! This writer knows damn well KU won’t go 40-0, but his paycheck does not depend on his “accuracy” – it depends on his click rate.

    If you had to bet a paycheck on a team going 40-0 who you got – UK, Duke, KU, write-in?

    Regardless, you know “stuff” is about to hit the fan when the new AD at Kansas, Jeff Long, has a clause in his contract ensuring “…his contract will be extended equal to the length of any NCAA probation or restrictions that Kansas receives”.
