Luke Winn: Jayhawks' title march now begins with on-campus embarrassmentupdated: Thu Sep 24 2009 15:40:00

I'm still planning on putting Kansas No. 1 in my preseason rankings. The Jayhawks are too experienced, too talented, too deep to be ranked anywhere else. I know what I saw last season, when point guard Sherron Collins emerged as one of the country's best leaders; and in the NCAA tournament, when center Cole Aldrich established himself as a premier defensive stopper. I know what I saw in New York in April, when wing recruit Xavier Henry looked like a future pro in workouts for the Jordan Brand All-Star Classic; and in in Colorado in June, when two-guard Tyshawn Taylor was gearing up to star on USA Basketball's gold-medal-winning Under-19 team.

Announcers first. Keith of Seattle believes the league is so intent on "selling the spectacle" of the game that "actual facts get in the way of the sales job, hence, revenues." And that, he feels, accounts for the decline in quality of announcing. I get your thought and I agree, kind of, but here's the way I'd put it. Networks appeal to image, hence they hire image people and push them hardest. Once upon a time they weren't afraid of hiring big, earthy guys with a sense of humor ... Matt Millen, John Madden. Now they seem to be more interested in pretty folks who aren't as glib or as incisive.
