I don't often enjoy talking about Kansas basketball for extended periods of time, but I found an exception in this week's podcast with KC Star beat writer Jesse Newell (formerly of the Topeka Capital-Journal) our own Gracey Terrill, who did just fine in her Bring on the Podcast debut. It was almost like she's done this before or something.We discussed the inexplicable hex KU has over the rest of the league to make everything go its way if a Big 12 title ever looks in doubt, and that was before Oklahoma lost in Lubbock. Jesse also talked a little about how K-State could exploit KU's weaknesses on Saturday and possibly extend Bruce Weber's stunning win streak to three games. Finally, we covered KU's "classiness," Brennan Greene's dunk, and other important issues.Have a listen and be sure to check out Jesse's work at kansascity.com or kansas.com (The Wichita Eagle).
