He'll be the first to tell you that the milestone is secondary to everything else the game represents.
The ninth-ranked Jayhawks are 23-4 overall and 11-3 in the Big 12, tied for first place with rival Kansas State. So a win over the Cyclones would ensure they're no worse than neck-and-neck with the Wildcats with three games left in the regular season.
Kansas has won the past eight regular-season conference championships.
Still, Self's players say they have a vested interest in seeing their coach win his 500th game. Center Jeff Withey says ``he's done a lot for us, so if we can get that win for him, that means a lot to us and him.''
