Welcome to yet another "rebuilding" year for Bill Self and the Kansas Jayhawks.

Although, the word "rebuild" has a little bit of a different definition in Lawrence than it does for other college basketball programs. 

After winning the national title in 2008, the Jayhawks entered the next season with no impact seniors and Sherron Collins as the only true leader. Naturally, they still made it to the Sweet 16, blowing away expectations.

Oddly enough, the next season, they were ranked No. 1 for most of the year and ended up bowing out in the second round of the NCAA tournament. 

But when the word "rebuild" worked its way back around to the Phog Allen Fieldhouse, the Jayhawks once again proved everyone wrong, making it to the Elite Eight in 2011 and to the national championship last year. 

With the Jayhawks entering this season at No. 7 despite the loss of Thomas Robinson and Tyshawn Taylor, coupled with a ton of youth, it would appear that pundits have finally figured out the secret.

Bill Self and his staff don't rebuild.

Let's take a look at what's in store for Kansas this season.
