Fumble! Kansas State defenders scramble to pick up a KU fumble. (KC Star photo)
Kansas State defeated Kansas 17-10 in Manhattan today. KU turned the ball over 3 times, and the offense was inconsistent and unable to establish a rhythm. K State D was stout when it needed to be and their stud running back Daniel Thomas ran for 183 yards total, running 105 of them in the third quarter when K State grabbed the game and would not let go. KU's offensive woes continue with Todd Reesing fumbling twice, intercepted once and still in a slump. This, along with Mizzou's loss to Baylor, puts K State in a position to win the Big 12 North. Not bad for a team expected to be in the basement this year.
I am a New Yorker by birth, and have been a life long Giants, Jets and Mets fan. (I never could really get into rooting for the Yankees.) I moved to Vermont for my high school years. I lived in the Philadelphia area for several years. Then I returned to Vermont to live. Now, I have been in Kansas City for twenty years. I am a Royals and Chiefs fan. I'm a graduate of the University of Vermont. My tax dollars go to MU, but I am an all around fan of our area Big 12 colleges. I love living in a town with a vibrant sports scene, where sports news gets more comments than any other news. I am passionate but thoughtful. I don't call names. However, if someone needs a butt kicking, I'll give it. So, that's where I'm coming from.
