How bad are things in Kanas City?
A groupd called "Save the Chiefs" is calling for a "Blackout" Sunday, to show they are in mourning for the state of the franchise. The group is also looking for individuals to hand out flyers, calling for the firing of GM Scott Pioli. Check out their message:
Organizers behind the Save Our Chiefs movement have designated November 18, 2012 against the Cincinnati Bengals as the official Blackout Arrowhead game. Not a blackout in the traditional sense where the game isn't televised but instead one where the fans wear black to the game. Why a Blackout? To send a visual message that Chief fans are tired of broken leadership and subpar performance on the field. Black is a color commonly attributed to “mourning” which is the state of mind, play and spirit of the Chiefs fan base.
Organizers released this official statement on Wednesday, October 17, 2012:
"We, the donators and supporters of the banner and movement, have been accused of being fair weather fans. This is simply not true. We are passionate fans who live and die with this team on Sunday. If we were fair weather fans, we would have found something else to do a long time ago. Instead, we have gone hoarse by the second quarter and not been able to speak right the next day. We have painted our faces and worn costumes, even formed charitable organizations that have raised tens of thousands of dollars to benefit the local community. We have made life-long friends and are as dedicated a Chiefs fan as anyone else.

Crennel: Chiefs' dance party is over
“We had some penalties that were really uncharacteristic of the guys on this team,” Crennel said. “They were celebrating and dancing and those kinds of things. With the record we have, we really can’t afford to be dancing or anything like that. Our focus should be on trying to play good football and trying to do everything to help the team win and not do things that cost the team field position and give a good opponent some momentum and those kinds of things.
“I do have a young team and I keep mentioning that all the time. Young guys do make young mistakes. We’re going to educate those guys about their actions … and then we’re going to eliminate it.”

Blast from the past
NKU Norse lose OT thriller in DI debut
“I'm glad we weren't their first win in Division I,” Dee said of NKU. “They played very well and really hard.”
NKU head coach Dave Bezold made it clear that moral victories do not count on the court, even if it was the Norse's first game as a Division I program.
“We don't care about close,” Bezold said. “This program has never been about being OK or being close. It's about winning, and we didn't do enough of the right things to win. We didn't make free throws, and we didn't make shots. We fouled too much. We didn't shoot free throws at the end, and that cost us.”
I get a kick out of stuff like this
I received the following email this morning:
Jason has sent you the following story that may be of interest from the Official Site of Xavier University. Click the link below to go to the story:
Jason's comments: Welcome to the A-10, Butler. Enjoy your doormat status from here on out. Xavier owns you.
I replied to the email and found the address no longer exists. Jason created an account just to send the email and take a shot at Butler? Seriously?
Regular season perfection
Brian Kelly has a chance to coach his second different team to an undefeated regular season: Cincinnati in 2009 and Notre Dame this season. How many coaches have had undefeated seasons with multiple teams? Listener Steven Sharp points out Ara Parseghian, at both Miami University and Notre Dame. Steven adds we could see Urban Meyer do it this season at Ohio State, after leading Utah to an undefeated regular season in 2004. Noah Stern (Twitter) found Dan Devine: Arizona State ('57) and Missouri ('60), and Frank Leahy: Boston College ('40) and Notre Dame ('49).
Ohio State pursues own goals as perfect season nears
At 10-0, only two more wins separate the Buckeyes from becoming just the school's sixth undefeated and untied team. And yet, as college football reaches its November crescendo, Ohio State isn't a part of the shouting match, or most importantly, the national championship chase.
"There's no negativity," left tackle Jack Mewhort said. "We're proud to be 10-0."
