Kansas Jayhawks Number 1 AP Polls

Hard to believe that the Kansas Jayhawks college basketball team is ranked #1 in the AP preason poll for the first time since the 1950's. Think about all the great teams Kansas has had in the late 80's and throughout the 90's, think about all the great players they have sent to the NBA, and to think this is the first time they are ranked in the preason #1 in about 50 years is amazing.

Question I have, is this the best Jayhawk team in recent year? With four returning starters back, they do have the leadership to carry them into the Final Four, but I think recent teams with Paul Pierce, Raef Lafrentz, etc might be better than this current team, I just think those teams had bad luck in the tournament as well as having key players leaving early for the NBA draft.

Looking over the top 25 teams this year, I see Kansas making the Final Four with possibly Duke, Oklahoma St., and maybe Georgia Tech which only means that this will be a very tough Final Four. Can Kansas keep their team together and erase those mistakes they made in past tournaments to finally win the big game? Should be a great March and April.
