LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Everybody seemed to be happy on the Kansas bench last season.
Bill Self was certainly pleased with the way his team ran roughshod to an eighth straight Big 12 title. All his players were content, too, because they understood their roles, and that seven or eight of them were going to carry the load on a night-by-night basis.
There could be quite a bit more discontent this season, at least early on, and Self believes that's just as good as the positive vibes that enveloped the program last year.
The reason? There are about a dozen guys who could be vying for playing time for the seventh-ranked Jayhawks.
They open the regular season against Southeast Missouri State on Nov. 9
