The head coach has called out his Kansas Jayhawks off-and-on over the years, saying this team didn't play well, or that team was soft, or just "wasn't very good." He would say these things, and we would halfheartedly listen, knowing the Jayhawks were only the next opponent away from proving there really wasn't anything to worry about.
Brandon Rush's supposed shooting woes would wane. Sherron Collins would direct traffic and take over a game in crunch time. Tyrel Reed and Brady Morningstar would make slight corrections needed to again lock down the defensive perimeter. The Morris twins would find a way to provide a spark to a fire that never really went out to begin with. A program good enough to turnover multiple classes and still win seven conference championships doesn't have a fire problem.
