Schedules don't magically appear in college basketball, and it appears that Kansas is having a bit of a hard time putting together the right slate starting next season. While KU mostly has its schedule ready, Andy Katz of ESPN reports that Bill Self's administration is still looking for one more solid opponent for the schedule.
"Kansas coach Bill Self said the Jayhawks are desperate for a quality home-and-home series, starting in Lawrence next season. KU originally talked to Indiana but that deal fell through," writes Katz. "The Jayhawks are in the CBE Classic with Saint Louis as the other high-profile team. The Jayhawks also have the Champions Classic game against Michigan State in Atlanta, return a game at Ohio State and get Temple at home. That's still a very strong slate. But Self said the Jayhawks are looking for a new series at home and are struggling to find one."
Kansas will try for its ninth consecutive Big 12 title in 2012-13. It will be the first season with Texas A&M and Missouri out of the Big 12.
