The largest mass exodus in Bill Self's career as Kansas head coach came following the 2007-08 national title season.
Brandon Rush, Mario Chalmers and Darrell Arthur all left Lawrence early for the NBA. Seniors Sasha Kaun, Darnell Jackson, Russell Robinson and Rodrick Stewart also departed. All seven ranked in the Jayhawks' top eight in minutes played, leaving Self with guard Sherron Collins and little-used Cole Aldrich.
Despite this episode of departures, Kansas managed to capture yet another Big 12 title while reaching the Sweet Sixteen as a No. 3 seed in 2009.
Self has been lauded for this consistency over ten years as head coach for KU and while the No. 2 Jayhawks appear ready for another Final Four run in 2013, he will likely lose his entire starting five in rebuilding his roster once again.
He currently holds a stellar recruiting class of five commits, one that will likely hit six in the coming weeks, therefore significant changes to a young rotation will occur.
