Danny Manning never won in 4 trips to Ames (and Larry Brown went 0-5). Nowadays it's hard to spot many matchups where KU would be the underdog.
Think I read somewhere that KU has been an underdog something like 40 times in the last 15 years. That's just about 3 times per season. Since they play 35 games it would appear that KU is favored in over 90% of their games. Seems like the only interesting part about KU basketball any more, is the NCAA Tourney.
I love watching every game they played. I wish they played 30 more than they do.
