Expectations are always high for Kansas basketball, a program that has won seven consecutive Big 12 regular season titles.
So even though the team is off to a solid 5-2 start, with their only losses coming in tight games against top 10 foes, Jayhawks coach Bill Self isn't happy, especially with his inconsistent back-court:
With three of Kansas' top guards -- Tyrel Reed, Brady Morningstar and Josh Selby -- departing from last season, Self has been forced to hand over the reigns of the team over to Taylor and Johnson, two talented but inconsistent upperclassmen.
Thomas Robinson, while a dominant force on the backboards, isn't nearly as skilled as the Morris twins at creating his own shot, so he needs the Jayhawks guards to get him the ball in the correct spots.
And with a Dec. 10 home date against No. 2 Ohio State looming, Kansas' guards don't have much time to live up to Self's expectations.
