No love for Kentucky AT ALL. I'm not saying they're going to make it as I didn't even pick them, but I think it's possible. They're the No. 3 team in the country with a record of 22-3, so you'd think at least SOME people would have them in the Final Four. But that's okay. They're getting NO respect or publicity, so there's less pressure on them.

Teams like Kansas are getting more respect, but they are a team who just lost THREE IN A ROW.

They no longer have lost 3 in a row.

They also played 2 of those 3 games without Moody there starting PF, but more importantly, they beat KY this year AT KY without Wayne Simien.

Couple that with the BIG 12 having performed MUCH better then the SEC over the last few years in the tourney and the getting more respect is very understandable and deserved.

Fight On!

Kansas lost in double-overtime at Texas Tech (ranked team), in overtime to Iowa State, and at (ranked) Oklahoma.

Then they beat No. 4 Oklahoma State.

Say what you will about the three losses; the Jayhawks still have the No. 1 RPI and No. 1 SOS. And as long as they take care of business against K-State and Missouri, they'll have a Big 12 conference championship.

And Marc, they also have a win, on the road, at Kentucky, without their best player.
