Royals can't complete the sweep

The Royals were looking for their first sweep in about three weeks (July 30 - Aug. 1 against Orioles).

They held a 3-0 lead against the Indians heading into the eighth so it was looking good.

And then? A five run inning and a two run inning to close it out and Royals lose 7-3.

Kyle Davies lasted one out into the eighth before getting out of there.

Kale Pick dominates the headlines

While searching for some KU news this morning I realized that there's one story folks care about right now: Kale Pick as the starting quarterback.

KU released their entire depth chart -- and there are some surprises -- but the story of the day is Pick.

Unfortunately he's nothing compared to the quarterback Blaine Gabbert is. If KU is to finish ahead of MU in the Big 12 North this year, it won't be because KU wins the quarterback battle.

Still, though, it's important they picked someone and did it as early as possible.
