    The last time Kansas did not win the Big 12 title, George W. Bush was President and the No. 1 song in the land was Yeah! by Usher featuring Lil Jon and Ludacris.

    The year was 2004.

    Yet with wins Monday by Texas Tech and Kansas State, Kansas’s reign atop the Big 12 is in serious jeopardy.

    The Jayhawks now have just a 6 percent chance of winning a chance of the Big 12 for a 15th consecutive season.

    No. 8 Texas Tech and No. 18 Kansas State are both 13-4 in the Big 12 and both control their destiny. Texas Tech finishes at Iowa State and K-State at Oklahoma. With wins, they would share the Big 12 title.

    No. 13 Kansas (11-5) has two games left at Oklahoma and against Baylor.
