The Kansas Jayhawks' imperial death march to the Big Dance — and inevitable March letdown — is on. With a tight defense and an explosive offense, the Jayhawks have breezed through a preseason schedule with few — if any — scares. A few weeks ago, the rock chalk Jayhawk
chants drowned out a death rattle from the RedHawks of Miami (Ohio). Tonight at 8 at Allen Fieldhouse (1651 Naismith Drive in Lawrence, 785-864-3141), the Oklahoma Sooners have the unlucky distinction of being the Big 12 home-opener opponent of Bill Self's Jayhawks
. To Darrell, Darnell, Brandon, Sherron and Sasha, the Sooners are simply the next victims. For $45 tonight, you'll be able to do the waving wheat with 16,000 likeminded Jayhawks.
