I was perfect in the pros – 4-0 – and that’s very tough these days. I dropped one in college, but still had a nice winning week. Let’s keep the heat on this weekend.
All that can be said about our Chiefs has been said. Now we know. Even the Wall Street Journal – a publication without a sports page – spanked our city as the worst in pro sports with two teams that haven’t won a post season game since 1985 (the Royals) and since 1993 for the Chiefs. Worst in the nation. Yikes.
Now we even have to hear about it from Wall Street.
Like most of you I’m a little surprised that the Ravens of Baltimore are only a 6 point favorite Sunday. Seems like easy money, right? You never can be too sure in the NFL though. Our FRANCHISE, Matt Cassel has been told by everyone, including the kid at his neighborhood lemonade stand, that if he doesn’t do better, much better, he will be yanked for that other failed quarterback, Brady Quinn.
Then when that doesn’t work, it’s time for “Oh Ricky, your so fine. Hey Ricky!” Nice.
Regardless the Chumps will be 1-4 after Sunday.
College ball shines for K-State. Right now that’s all our area has to cheer for in terms of football teams with a bright post season potential. In fact if the K-State Wildcats can win the Big 12, and they could, look out.
It could be Alabama vs. K-State for the National Championship.
We can dream, can’t we? K-State will crush KU’s Jayhawks on Saturday. They might go to second stringers late in the third quarter to show mercy, but don’t count on it when you’re after that No. 2 ranking at season’s end and a title shot.
K-STATE -18 OVER KANSAS (tease you get 6 points)
Ohio State +3 OVER NEBRASKA (tease with above game)
BALTIMORE EVEN OVER KC (TEASE and you get 6 points)
NEW YORK GIANTS -2 1/2 over CLEVELAND (TEASE with above)
PACKERS -7 OVER COLTS
