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...

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...

Holding on to what they've got: Indians' playoff hopes are livin' on a prayer

CLEVELAND -- The Indians had one foot pushed through the elimination door on Tuesday. They are one loss and a miracle away from being pushed entirely through it in the next couple days. With Tuesday's 7-1 loss to the Royals, Cleveland was officially eliminated from the Central Division race. Kansas City is up 4 1/2 games for the second wild card as the Tribe's elimination...

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...

Dwyer scores 19th; K.C. beats Chivas USA 4-0

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...

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...
