From the SI article
The backcourt duo of Deathbite and The Flush return, but the Wildcats’ frontcourt situation is less defined. Keep an eye on rising sophomore Xavier Sneed, who’s in line for a starting role at wing. Kansas State may be in the basement for now, but it’s easy to see them not finishing there.
Kansas State will do much better.  Joyhawks will fall to 4th.  Their trans Indian, Harry Whiteguy, left.  Mitch Lightpole has a broken snoz.  King Klog is coming off an injury and is a greenhorn. So it's kind of how optimistic you want to be.

Looking forward to seeing what #oscar can do w/this team of plucky underdogs, picked by experts to finish last in the league.  The table is set for the naysayers to be proven wrong with a courageous 8th-place finish.

Possibly not good enough for Bob Strawn.

This seems so likely.

I thought only Jayhaaawkers plucked their underdogs.  Plucking sounds painful to  my special friends.

For the competitors, unlike those programs that have established a monopoly on the best players, it takes a good measure of LUCK in order to put together a great season. I would say the Force factors more heavily than most other things. The competing programs, which have solid coaching, must avoid key injuries. This is the first thing. The competitors cannot sustain key injuries. Monopolies will bury them. The competitors have to get some favorable calls along the way. This is not easy while playing against a monopoly. Who will forget the force-fed flurry of bad calls at ISU,, which led to the KU monopoly to retain it's monopoly on Big XII championships? In a world where transfers are the norm, and immaturity flourishes, competitors must be able to build experience. This is not an easy thing to do. Last, but not least, the force must shine well upon the competitor who dares to spar with the monopoly. A crucial three pointer must fall at the right time. The ball must bounce the right way at the right time.

This is not to belittle hard work, good coaching and team work. No team will deserve the name of "competitor" without possessing these things.

I think Life has found the elixir for our mediocrity, luck.  What can we do to spawn Lucky Oscar?  I propose getting him a shellacked lucky chicken foot.  Any other suggestions?
