All The Bacon and Eggs: My Love Letter to the NFL

Bacon and Eggs

By Joe Fuentes   Dear NFL, Oh how I have missed you. It was a difficult summer with the way things ended between us. We both said and did some things we shouldn’t have; Jay Cutler got hurt and ruined the Bears season. But let’s not dwell on things from the past. It’s time for us to turn a new leaf. A new chapter is starting in our relationship. Peyton Manning is finally back, but he’s with a different team. But I have to tell you, he hasn’t missed a missed a beat– orange might just be his new favorite color. The Bears finally got their receiver, well two receivers: Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery….

Gridiron Gesticulations Week 2: LOLs in the Polls


Well, KU lost. Here are my thoughts. But we can take solace in the fact that other teams lost in a myriad of more embarrassing ways. Falling from Grace Where to begin? How about Arkansas getting taken out of the Top 25 entirely by Louisiana Monroe? Razorback fans are going to make the excuse that QB Tyler Wilson left the game at halftime due to injury, but come on, shouldn’t the #8 team be able to beat the Warhawks with their 3rd string in the game? The answer is yes, Arkansas. The answer is yes. Also your defense stinks and WOO PIG SOOIE is dumb. One can only hope this begins your long slide back into…

The Recruiting Trail: Self and staff keeping busy

the recuiting trail

By Nick Ratliff   Welcome to the second edition of the Recruiting Trail blog. There is a TON of information to get into this week, so let’s get right into it: First off, the only real information to give on the football recruiting front is that three in-state players who have already committed to the Jayhawks for the 2013 class attended the season opening win against South Dakota State last Saturday. Quarterbacks Jordan Darling from Shawnee Mission East in Prairie Village (my alma mater, Go Lancers!) and Montell Cozart from Bishop Miege in Roeland Park, KS and tight end Ben Johnson from Basehor-Linwood High School in Basehor, KS were all present at the game, representing…

All The Bacon and Eggs: It’s Finally Back!

Bacon and Eggs

By Joe Fuentes It was a great weekend in sports: college football returned, Manchester United avoided embarrassment, Dwight Howard said thank you to Orlando and the NFL begins Wednesday. So let’s get started:   College Football Is it bad that I left the KU game early? I walked out after the 99 yard touchdown run (which I called by the way) by South Dakota State in the first quarter to put the Jackrabbits up 7-0. I’m sorry, but it was 100 degrees in the stands, there was no shade and our offense couldn’t score on its first two possessions. I had already seen enough. Although, the Jayhawks ended up winning the game, I think it…

Jayhawks beat SDSU in Weis debut


By Trevor Graff The first game of the Charlie Weis era ended in a Jayhawk victory, but it began with a missed 35-yard Ron Doherty field goal. The Jackrabbits exploited the Jayhawks slow start. A 99-yard Zach Zenner touchdown run put South Dakota State ahead seven to nothing following Doherty’s missed attempt. Despite the slow start, the Jayhawks found a rhythm early in the second half. “The performance had its highs and lows, but as a coach this is utopia,” coach Charlie Weis said. “What’s going to happen is the guys are going to go out and enjoy themselves tonight, but on the flip side there will be so many things on the tape where…
