Happy Wednesday. A little lost in the shuffle of the SuperBowl, Big Monday and Bensa's encore performance was a bit of a milestone here at Rock Chalk Talk that occurred somewhere between Sunday night and Monday morning.  That milestone would be the 1,000,000th visitor.  Yep a million.  The sitemeter at the bottom of the page has been replaced with a more accurate dashboard so they don't quite matchup but as of today we're at about 1,002,400 visits to this little blog and it's been a pretty fun ride.

Jesse poses a pretty interesting question and while it was ongoing I think it was hard to completely understand just how off the charts this team has played offensively since Texas.

Cats' Kelly Facing Permanent Suspension | CJOnline.com
BOOM!!  The titanic is already sinking so the only thing that could make it worse is...well maybe a hole in the lifeboat.  The rumor picked up steam yesterday afternoon, but it sounds like Kelly could be gonzo. No confirmation on the nature of the issue but the rumor is that it stems from a series of failed "tests" and not the kind you take in a classroom.

A nice post over at the Okie Light blog. Interesting that Kansas doesn't get the same home cooking that most opponents contend. In fact K-State and Mizzou are the biggest benefactor's in terms of foul differential when at home vs. away. NO MORE COMPLAINING.
