KUfan.Com celebrates its' THIRD decade on the WWW with a new, improved website. Still a work in progress, the goal will be to make it an easier place to navigate, along with stories of what's happening with the Jayhawks, and perhaps a glimpse into what's happening with some other teams and some other sports.  The Weather Page has also been refreshed. I hope you enjoy the new look and encounter no problems while moving around. Fear not, regular visitors, there will be the 25th Annual NCAA Tournament Contest. More about that in the first part of February.

Of course, the biggest change is the new drop down menus. It's been a goal for several years. It will be much easier to navigate around. One of the new features is when you click on a link that takes you away from this website,  a new window will open so you won't lose your place here. That is dependant though, on whether your browser options are set to allow a website to open new windows. Another nice little touch is when scrolling down a long page, if you want to quickly return to the top, there is an up arrow in the lower right hand corner to click that will take you there immediately.

If you do run across a problem, a wrong or dead link, any issue, a comment or a suggestion, please send an email. I'd love to hear from you. A link to send an email should be available at the bottom of every page.


Upsets of #1 Teams

        
     
Last Update: 1/20

The first week of the season saw Associated Press #1 Michigan State loses to Kentucky. The next week, Kentucky took over the #1 spot and promptly lost to unranked Evansville. The next week, Duke move to #1 and holds it for two weeks before losing in overtime to unranked Steven F. Austin, AT HOME. All this happened in November. Louisville becomes #1 in December for a couple of weeks and loses to unranked Texas Tech. Kansas takes over and can't handle the heat of being ranked at the top and loses to Villanova. Gonzaga bubbles to the top and holds it several weeks and sadly becomes a victim of their weaker conference. Baylor takes over #1 by sneaking ahead of the 'Zags by three lousy votes.

In the 70+ years of the Associated Press poll, this is the first time that more than one #1 team has lost in November. Duke hasn't lost a regular season non-conference game since 2000 (150 straight games). There has never been SIX #1 teams lose before January (3 was the max). We have now tied the record from 1983 of having SEVEN number one teams and there's still half of a season of baskeball left to play. The Jayhawks have moved back up to #3 while the Shockers, having lost two games in a row, have dropped out of the polls.

Also of note, North Carolina has fallen out of the polls for the first time in five years. The Tar Heels (8-9, 1-5 in conference play) Tar Heels have now lost 8 out of their last 10 games and are now flirting with not even making it to the NIT, however there is still a lot of basketball left to be played.


Maybe it's time for ol' Roy Boy
to hang up his white board.

These four teams are the only Division 1 schools with over 2,000 victories. The top three, the true blue-bloods, are deeply rooted together.


The next school to join this elite club will probably be Temple.




Fifteenpeat

3/9/19
No fifteen conference championships in a row this year for Kansas. Texas Tech and Kansas State took care of that. The unblievable streak is over. Could it ever be possible to accomplish such a feat again? In ANY major sport?



"There is parity in the Big 12.
Everyone has an equal chance to finish second."
- Rece Davis, ESPN (circa 2015)
- - -
The Streak is over.
Long Live "The Streak".
