Chiefs continue making moves

The Chiefs continued making moves this weekend, signing a nose tackle from the Packers (Anthony Toribio) and releasing a receiver (Quinten Lawrence).

Toribio is 6-foot-1 and 305 pounds. He was the Packers last year when they ran a 3-4 so he has some experience. He has little experience on the active roster.

He now becomes the Chiefs backup nose tackle. On Saturday, the Chiefs released nose tackles Derek Lokey and Garrett Brown from the active roster.

KU's worst loss in history?

The KC Star's Upon Further Review blog is wondering whether the loss to North Dakota State is the worst loss in school history.

SB Nation's Rock Chalk Talk says there are games like the one against NDSU for two reasons.

First and foremost, a win.  You need six to get into a bowl and you can count one of these toward that six.  Tough break, Kansas get's none this year.  The second reason, a tune up.  A FCS school is supposed to afford a team an opportunity to work out the kinks, iron out last minute changes and find the areas that need to be worked on.  The only one of those goals that Kansas accomplished was finding plenty of work to do.

Either way, it's designed to be a win.

It was Alex Gordon who hit the go-ahead home run in the sixth inning for the Royals to take a 2-1 victory. Kyle Davis kept the Tigers to three hits over the first six innings. He gave up just a solo shot.
