Early glance: Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl

Klein should learn from the Tebow QB experiment

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Heres the thing that doesnt make a shred of sense: Collin Klein is a smart guy. Surely, hes watched enough of Tim Tebow to know that this is not the path that lands you at Candy Castle in the end.
