Big 12 Predictions: Can Anyone Dethrone Kansas

November 6, 2018

For the past decade and a half, the Big 12 has gone through Lawrence, Kansas. Head Coach Bill Self has established a winning culture, which has expectations, year in and year out, sky high. The Jayhawks are primed to win the Big 12 for a fifteenth(!) consecutive season, but there are a few teams with their eyes on Kansas' throne. Will this be a repeat of what's been the norm, or will we finally see a new team wear the Big 12 crown?
