Kansas Coach Bill Self Faces Tremendous Challenge Next Season

Will Bill Self get to coach, or will he be stuck babysitting?

As excited as Kansas fans should be about the football season this year with new head coach Charlie Weis and former Notre Dame quarterback Dayne Crist, the attention in Lawrence is always on the hardwood.

Bill Self is starting to realize the enormous challenge he will have next season. CBSSports recently covered how Kansas basketball will have eight first-timers taking the floor next year as freshmen. Yep, count 'em, eight.

Now nobody is going to feel bad for Self, because Kansas is still considered by most experts to be a top-10 team next season. But it will be pretty amazing to watch and see how he coaches possibly the most youthful team in America.
