With a loss to Baylor in the opening round of the Big 12 Tournament, the Kansas Jayhawks fell from No. 11 to No. 13 in the latest coaches' poll out Monday afternoon.

The Jayhawks also fell to No. 14 in the latest Associated Press poll.

Oklahoma was ranked No. 8 and Missouri was No. 9 in the coaches' poll and No. 7 and No. 9 according to AP. No other Big 12 teams were in the top 25.

So we beat OU away, win the regular season title and lose in the same round as OU in the conf. tourney yet, we're still a bit behind them in the polls? While I realize we have 2 more losses, I still believe we should at least be one ahead of them, whether its in the top 10 or not.

Polls are meaningless now until the tourny is over.

win big 12 reg season , much better than big 12 tourney.. anyway stay focused , do not allow teams to build large leads and this team can advance. Mizzou better than WV and we should have beat them at Mizzou. pounded them here. Michigan St grudge match who knows??????????

i am more worried about the first 2 games we dont respond well to new situations and weaker teams after that it will most likley be michigan st. which like cooonrod said is a grudge match just the thing ku gets up for then we are definite underdogs from there on out which is another good position for this team to be in.

I like KU's match up in the bracket and the fact that no one is talking about KU as a potential national title contender .. that said, we have to be at our best , missing bunnys or layups will not cut. Against Baylor, I guess it was Markieff who botched a dunk and it was a 7 point swing in few seconds and we never recovered. KU will have to play its best game , like they played against Tennessee or Misery at AFH.

I like our chances to go to Detroit.

I'm hope we play Louisville in the elite 8. That will be a great game if it happens.

Ditto Relic.

A poll now is irrelevant.

I hate polls.

I like the NCAA tourney that Phog Allen dreamed up.

It proves who is best and who is jest.
