KU Wednesday Tutorial: Kansas State Week – Update Kansas

In a year filled with historically important weeks and moments, this may be the biggest such week yet for the Kansas Jayhawks. They have a chance to beat their hometown rivals for the first time since the Prince of Darkness reigned in Manhattan, while also giving the Jayhawks a chance to keep the Kansas State Wildcats out of the Big 12 Championship Game.

But as big as the game is on its own, it pales in comparison to the importance of KU reportedly agreeing to a contract extension with Lance Leipold, keeping the architect of the program’s turnaround in Lawrence for the long term. It’s hard to quantify how important that is to the Jayhawks’ continued growth, but a good way to start doing it would be to ride that wave of positive momentum and head into Saturday’s strong Sunflower Showdown performance.
