No. 20 K-State shows little in season-opening win

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Kansas State ran up the middle. Ran to the left, then to the right. Even got crazy and threw a couple short passes to running backs out of the backfield on Saturday night. So much for opening up the playbook. The No. 20 Wildcats hardly made it past the first couple pages. It couldn't have been scripted much better in a 55-16 romp over Stephen F. Austin. Kansas...

No. 20 K-State wary of opening against FCS foes

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Ryan Mueller still finds it hard to talk about one year later. Kansas State was opening a new season amid high expectations. The school was dedicating a $90 million renovation to its football stadium. A bronze statue of coach Bill Snyder that stood to the west of the press box was unveiled amid much pomp and circumstance. Then the Wildcats were humbled by a team...

Chiefs' Fisher is playing hurt, but he needs to be pushed -- or replaced

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A rushed Alex Smith is a bad Alex Smith. Actually, let's clarify that a little: A rushed Alex Smith is a mediocre Alex Smith. Since 2011, when the Kansas City Chiefs' quarterback turned the corner for the better in his NFL career, Smith's completion percentages while "pressured," according to Pro Football Focus (PFF), are as follows: 41...

BROOKINGS, S.D. — Crowded around two medium-sized tables in South Dakota State football coach John Stiegelmeier’s modest kitchen, the 16 seniors on his Jackrabbits team were discussing their most embarrassing sports memories over a pork loin feast on a rare Sunday reprieve from the team’s training camp grind earlier this month.

Nonconference games could show whether Mizzou is NCAA tourney material

If challenging neutral-site games are the best way to prepare for the postseason, Missouri basketball should be in good shape. For the seventh straight season, the Tigers will play only one true road game in their 13-game nonconference schedule, which the university released Friday morning.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- To paraphrase that ancient philosopher Jim Croce, you don't step on Superman's cape. You don't spit into the wind. You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger.

When CFB AM was created, few rules were crafted to govern this space. Just be an informative, entertaining and clean place to stop by in the morning for a few minutes, get current on some college football news and entertainment and move along with your day. One rule I did give myself for this column and life in general? Avoid mentioning the word “twerk” at all costs. There...
