Obviously, with the majority of bracket participants living in Kansas, the University of Kansas has always been a perennial favorite for picks in the ebTalk Benefit Pool.

This year is quite different.

With KU being a 4-seed, only 7 brackets believe the Jayhawks have what it takes to win it all.

They are the twelfth most picked team to win the championship which is the lowest KU has ever been favored in this pool’s 17-year history.

While 72% of the pool has KU advancing to the round of 32, the numbers drop significantly after that. Only 34% of the pool believes they can advance to the Sweet 16 past Gonzaga.

Then only 9% has them going to the Elite 8 and 4% to the Final Four. After that, 11 people believe KU can make it to the championship game.
