Last week at this time, we all
hoped and dreamed were ready to believe the Big 12 (with the top seven all appearing NCAA-bid worthy) might be up for grabs among no fewer than four or perhaps even five teams.
Man, we're a bunch of suckers.
Bill Self and his blossoming Jayhawks spent recent games erasing nearly every doubt with this team, as KU shot out to the early conference lead, with an impressive win at Ames on Monday to cap off the quick start.
Overall, *only* half the conference is ranked in the AP Top 25 this week, and, after Kansas, the margin between spots 2-7 seems to be pretty thin at this point.
