Four from the weekend: Chiefs continue to bomb, K-State stumbles, and what happened to Mizzou and KU?
The Kansas City Star
Did you know the Bengals are utterly mediocre?
Did you know they are now 5-5? Did you know they rank 15th in offense and 17th in defense, almost a perfectly average, C+, just-getting-by, nothing-to-see-here football team?
Did you know the only other time in the last five years they’ve won by 22 or more on the road they played the Seahawks when Tarvaris Jackson started at quarterback and Marshawn Lynch rushed for 24 yards?
The only redeeming quality of another embarrassing loss yesterday, like I write in the column, is that Clark Hunt can no longer be vague about just how bad things are.
Too bad about Kansas State. The Wildcats are a hard team not to like, and an impossible story not to get behind.
But, like Blair Kerkhoff writes today, K-State still has plenty to play for.
So much for those signs of progress at Kansas. Charlie Weis had built some nice season-winding-down momentum, but goodness, can’t give up 51 points to Iowa State and feel good.
Anyway, this is an underrated great time of the year for sports. College football, college basketball, the NFL and more hot stove in baseball. I think I have some interesting stuff lined up for the paper, two columns in particular that should run toward the end of the week. Hope you check it out.
