Kansas head coach Bill Self is not shy in hiding his blunt criticism toward his diverse rosters each year, with this season being no exception.
The 10th-ranked Jayhawks defeated San Jose State earlier in the season but Self was not impressed with anyone aside from Jeff Withey, saying, "He was the only guy who played worth a flip. He did a good job covering up for a lot of mistakes, because we made a ton of them tonight."
Furthermore, following a December 2011 loss to Davidson, he questioned KU's chances of even reaching the NCAA Tournament, let alone winning their eighth straight Big 12 title.
Self does have the most dynamic freshman scorer in the country in Ben McLemore along with four senior starters, one of which is the country's best interior defender in Withey, but continues to stress improvement in a few key areas.
