Big 12: Kansas Looks to the Stars

SAN ANTONIO - Coming off of a mediocre 6-6 season, Kansas has been picked by the media to finish fourth in the Big 12 North. With the paradox of a one of the nation's best defensive backs, Aqib Talib, anchoring a pass defense that ranked dead last in the nation in 2006, head coach Mark Mangino has considered looking for answers in unusual places.

"Last year I was pretty close to calling that guy on TV who can make the blind see and the deaf hear," Mangino said, looking to the crowd for acknowledgment that perhaps the media, too, sometimes needs outside help. "He can't grow hair on his own head, but we were pretty close to calling him to see if he could help us out."

Still, Mangino, whose Jayhawks are 2-18 in Big XII road games, maintains that "everything is fixable."

With a soft non-conference schedule to start the season, Mangino explained that this is a perfect year for the team to fix it.
