LAWRENCE, KS -- It seems lots of folks want to be buddies with Kansas coach Mark Mangino -- and his unbeaten 12th ranked team.
Mangino says he's got "all kinds of new friends."
Mangino has made a remarkable turnaround in his sixth season at
a school where basketball has always ruled.
Kansas is led by an iron-willed sophomore quarterback and a
cornerback-wide receiver who seems to rise to every challenge.
The Jayhawks are 7-0 for the first time since 1995.
If they keep their streak alive and win this week at Texas A&M,
Kansas will be 8-0 for the first time since 1906.
A Big 12 championship and a BCS bowl game might even lurk down
But the Aggies have beaten Kansas seven games in a row -- and
never lost to the Jayhawks at home.
