Bring on the Podcast with 247sports Big 12 Editor Kevin Flaherty

It's time for another K-State trip to Lawrence, so occasional KU blogger Kevin Flaherty tells us why this year's Jayhawks may not look like what we're used to seeing from Bill Self's teams, even if the end results are generally about the same.

This team is very scary, especially in Lawrence.

Bruce Weber and the Wildcats can't afford to overlook Tuesday's home test against West Virginia, but we sure can and did on this week's podcast. 247sports Big 12 editor and contributor to Kansas blog TheShiver joins KSUEMAW! and I to explain why point guard Frank Mason III has been KU's best player and the leader of a strong backcourt often asked to cover up some weaknesses in the post. Kevin's also got some good news for Nino Williams about Perry Ellis' defense, or lack thereof.

The podcast runs a little long when we dive into a perplexing column by The Oklahoman's Berry Tramel claiming Kansas' dominance is a sign the Big 12 isn't very good, even this season. Finally, we try to figure out why the conference has struggled in postseason play and Kevin gives us the lone reasonable scenario in which Bill Self might actually leave Lawrence anytime soon.
