Kansas State's imperfect kicker redeems himself with perfect tweet

Jack Cantele had every reason to be down. Instead, the Kansas State kicker stepped up and picked up his Wildcats on Friday, a day after their 20-14 loss to Auburn. Cantele missed three field goals in the game in Manhattan, including a 22-yard shot that would have tied the game at 10-10. Afterward, Auburn marched down the field and scored a decisive touchdown. When Kansas State scored...

Burton says K-State's wideouts won't settle until they're 'best receiving group' in Big 12

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- You can beat a Gus Malzahn team that's got its mojo working, honest, but you're going to need one of two things. Or, preferably, both: 1. A rainstorm; 2. A quarterback who can chuck it 'til the clock runs out. No. 5 Auburn, Kansas State's dance partner Thursday night at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, has lost two games since August 2013. One came at...

Pinkel on QBs exposed to Mizzou D-line: 'It just changes you'

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- High school defensive linemen looking to become great might want to try putting on a Missouri jersey. OK, so maybe there are some other, more important steps in becoming an all-conference player and, eventually, an NFL Draft pick. But for those who earn the right to wear the black and gold on Saturdays, the odds seem to be in their favor. Since 2010, Missouri'...

Chiefs didn't have Jamaal Charles or Eric Berry in Denver -- but at least they had a pulse

They tried and failed. Or tried and covered, depending on how you want to spin Denver Broncos 24, Kansas City Chiefs 17. If the locals came away from Week 1 at Arrowhead Stadium horrified and appalled, they walked away from the television set in Week 2 proud at the guts spilled to and front, buoyed by a relief that this team has enough fire in the belly, enough pride, to play with...

CARSON, Calif. -- Dominic Dwyer broke Kansas City's single-season scoring record with his 19th goal to help Sporting beat Chivas USA 4-0 on Friday night.

Jayhawks visit Duke looking for first road win since 2009

DURHAM, N.C. -- For all of Duke's accomplishments during its recent rise to relevance, it's still been 20 years since the Blue Devils started a season with three straight victories. Duke is looking to check that off its to-do list when the Blue Devils host rebuilding Kansas on Saturday. The Blue Devils' 1994 team had been the most recent standard of success for a program...

Mykhailiuk lands at Kansas after World Cup ouster

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- In the course of a week, Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk went from playing against some of his biggest heroes on the U.S. team at the World Cup to figuring out where all his classes were on the hilly, tree-filled campus at Kansas. Talk about a whirlwind for the 17-year-old shooting guard from the Ukraine. "I've been sleeping a lot," he said with smile, shortly...

Expect a lot more touches for Jamaal Charles against the Broncos

Missing two defensive starters is not the way Kansas City hoped to head into a matchup against Peyton Manning, who shredded the Chiefs in a pair of Denver Broncos' victories last season. Coach Andy Reid is confident Kansas City can overcome the unfortunate circumstance, but he's also likely focusing on how to get Jamaal Charles more touches during Sunday's matchup in...

K-State T-shirt with 'Bama theme might just stoke Auburn

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas State is hoping to make a statement when No. 5 Auburn visits Manhattan on Sept. 18. Meanwhile, some enterprising Wildcat fans have apparently already made one.

Infante's a gamer, but Yost might need to consider other options

Royals second baseman Omar Infante is hurting. That is clear to everyone watching the Royals these days to see. The latest in a series of injuries for Infante is an inflamed right shoulder that he has been trying to battle through since late August. Last week, manager Ned Yost suggested that Infante probably was only at about 80 percent healthwise and that the inflammation likely...

No bailout in Detroit: Guthrie's short start dooms Royals

Thud. So much for the drama and excitement of a showdown between the first-place Royals and the Tigers, the team chasing them. The Tigers manhandled the Royals easily, 9-5, in the first game of a three-game set in Detroit on Monday. As a result, Kansas City's lead in the AL Central is down to one. This one got away thanks to some shoddy defense by the Royals, and even worse starting...

Flanny's Five: Royals dodge a bullet with Duffy, prepare for showdown in Motown

The Royals got some good news on the Danny Duffy front: His MRI came back Sunday night and showed that his ailing left shoulder is structurally sound. The MRI indicated Duffy has rotator-cuff inflammation, and the Royals said Duffy will not make his next scheduled start Thursday against Boston. It seems likely that right-hander Liam Hendriks will make that start, although left-hander...

3 in the Kee: When Chiefs look in the mirror, they won't like what they see

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Accepting the concept that the Tennessee Titans might not be that bad isn't what's driving the locals nuts today. It's accepting the concept that the Kansas City Chiefs might not be that good. "Yeah, it was tough," quarterback Alex Smith said after his Chiefs' 26-10 egg-laying Sunday in the team's home opener -- their last home game...

It's come full circle: The Chiefs now look like the teams they beat up on last year

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- One song -- granted, it was a lousy bleeping song -- and they're already talking about breaking up the band. Guys, guys, guys, we haven't even gotten to Frankie Hammond Jr.'s theremin solo yet!

Big Game James lives up to his name in pulsating Royals win

There probably are some Royals fans who still hate the James Shields-Wil Myers trade. But it's hard to understand why. And here was perhaps the signature win of the trade as Shields overpowered the Yankees for 8 1/3 innings at Yankee Stadium, and Wade Davis, also acquired in the trade, got the final two outs for a pulsating 1-0 win. This no doubt was what general manager Dayton...
