Chiefs' Smith suggests he lacked time to throw downfield on final series at Arizona

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It's been several days, but I have to admit I'm still completely puzzled by the Chiefs' final sequence of plays as they were trailing Arizona 17-14 on Sunday. Setting the stage: Starting at their own 24-yard line, the Chiefs needed to gain about 38 yards to give kicker Cairo Santos a decent shot at tying the score. They had 69 seconds and no timeouts -- a difficult...

All 10 baseball Hall candidates fall short

SAN DIEGO -- The doors to baseball's Hall of Fame remained shut to this year's Golden Era committee candidates. Nine players and one executive whose primary contributions were from 1947-72 all failed to receive the 75 percent of the vote needed for election. "The results today are a reminder that election to the Hall of Fame is incredibly difficult and the highest honor an individual...

Life doesn't get any easier for Mizzou with visit to No. 22 Oklahoma

With a quick glance at Oklahoma's difficult opening schedule, one might have considered Missouri as a team that would at least pose an interesting threat in its first return to Norman as a nonconference opponent. The Tigers' early season play has done nothing to back that up, and their struggles could carry into the SEC/Big 12 Challenge on Friday night against the 22nd-ranked Sooners...

No. 9 K-State heads to Baylor trying to make history

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- When B.J. Finney stepped to the line of scrimmage on Sept. 3, 2011, against Eastern Kentucky, Kansas State's football program was still in disarray. The Wildcats had been to three bowl games the previous eight seasons. They won a Big 12 title in 2003 but hadn't won more eight games or more since then. Their coach, Bill Snyder, had retired and come back, bookending...

Odds makers and the expected crowd will all be in No. 1 Alabama's favor when it meets No. 16 Missouri in Saturday's SEC Championship Game at the Georgia Dome. Nick Saban's crew is without question the conference's blue bloods in crimson garb, but the reality is that, despite the perceptions of their respective divisions, this will be a meeting of the SEC's two most dominant programs...

Missouri holds on to beat SEMO 65-61

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Johnathan Williams III scored 18 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead Missouri past Southeast Missouri State 65-61 on Tuesday. The sophomore forward played with a brace on his right knee but otherwise showed no ill effects from soreness that limited him to just 7 minutes against Chaminade in the Maui Invitational. The Tigers (4-3) took their first lead of the game...

Offense can wait: Royals' top priority is finding an ace

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Here's the problem the Royals and general manager Dayton Moore face this offseason: They have a lot of work to do just to stay as good as they were in 2014 when they reached Game 7 of the World Series. And, of course, the expectations are that the Royals need to get even better if they want another magical ride in 2015. How can they? Here are five musts: FIND...

Chiefs defensive line still shutting teams down

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kevin Vickerson has been a part of some stellar defensive fronts, whether he was playing next to Albert Haynesworth and Jevon Kearse in Tennessee or Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil in Denver. Still, the Kansas City Chiefs are on pace to do something that neither of those defenses did -- in fact, something that has never been done in the history of the NFL. They...

Names may change, but Shockers' stifling D remains the same

New frontcourt. Same angry. Apropos, right? In a building named The Pentagon, defense was the order of the day as the Missouri Valley Conference power of now, No. 11 Wichita State, thumped a Valley power of old, Memphis, 71-56, in Sioux Falls, S.D. The two teams, which combined for 59 wins a season ago, got together and misfired on 67 of 112 field-goal attempts and 20 of 26 tries...

3 in the Kee: Chiefs' start is for real, and Oakland may be ... dangerous?

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Patriots have three wins on their ledger over NFL teams with winning records through Week 11. The Steelers have three. The Colts, Bengals, Ravens, Browns and Dolphins have two each. The Kansas City Chiefs have four. So, no, don't let anyone tell you this 7-3 start isn't for real, or that this team is riding some kind of lucky schedule bounce. The Andy Gang...

Kansas City stadium food areas criticized as dirty

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Fans at last month's World Series and recent Kansas City Chiefs games were endangered by filthy conditions in food-service areas at the city's two professional sports stadiums -- including cockroaches, mouse feces and food kept at unsafe temperatures, according to a man who managed food safety at the facilities.

Kansas QB Cummings has weathered all competition

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Michael Cummings has never been the go-to guy at Kansas at the beginning of the season. He's always been the reliever. The junior quarterback out of Killeen, Texas, sat behind Dayne Crist his redshirt freshman year. When Crist failed to deliver, Charlie Weis and his offensive staff called upon Cummings, who started the final five games and played fairly well in...

No. 25 K-State tries to bounce back against UTEP

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- There are certain fundamentals that Bill Snyder stresses, and one of them is executing in the final 20 yards before the goal line. Kansas State's performance there last week had the old coach seeing, well, a whole lot of red. Five times they ventured into the red zone against Auburn. Only twice they came away with points. Two drives ended in missed field goals...

Jayhawks, Longhorns have plenty in common

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- If Texas coach Charlie Strong needs anybody to commiserate with these days, he needs look no further than the sleepy college town of Lawrence and the guy coaching Kansas. When Charlie Weis took over the Jayhawks a couple of years ago, a veritable purge ensued. Just about every day, it seemed, another player was suspended or dismissed from the program. Weis wanted...

Slow start or not, Chiefs know Tom Brady's Patriots can put up points

The New England Patriots have regularly been among the NFL's top offenses for the better part of a decade, but a pedestrian start has some wondering whether their run as an explosive unit may be over. Luckily, an improved defense has done most of the heavy lifting thus far. New England's struggling offense looks to provide some relief for its defense Monday night when it visits the...

If there are holes in Mizzou's game, the Gamecocks will find them

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Steve Spurrier wasn't quite as angry Tuesday as he had been about South Carolina's performance in a win over Vanderbilt. He is, though, still very frustrated. Spurrier ranted about his team's "embarrassing" performance following the 48-34 victory, appointing himself kickoff coverage coach when the Commodores returned two kickoffs for touchdowns.
