Watched the game, but haven't read the whole thread. I wouldn't be worried at all about KU this year. This is the type of game I would expect this team to lose. They've barely played together against real competition. And KU lost this game last year and went to the championship. It always takes Self a little while to figure out the right balance. And as the younger guys get more experience, they'll be more composed towards the end.
I'm also very excited about Traylor. He showed some awesome stuff tonight.
