Notebook: A Recap of TCU

Sure, I might offend a few of the ‘bluenoses’ with my cocky stride and musky odours. Oh, I’ll never be the darling of the so-called ‘City Fathers’ who cluck their tongues, stroke their beards, and talk about ‘What’s to be done with this Homer Simpson’?

The Rock Chalkboard

Despite the result, Saturday shows how far Kansas football has come under Lance Leipold
As KU football fans began to leave their suites at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium, one comment from a fan could be heard throughout the back stairwell. KU had just dropped its first game of the season, a 38-31 loss to TCU, ending the Jayhawks’ undefeated start to the season. KU’s first 5-0 start since 2009 in fact. But by now you know the numbers behind the Jayhawks’ blistering start to year two of the Lance Leipold era.

Tight end Mason Fairchild 'made some big plays' on his way to a career performance vs. TCU
In the second quarter of an eventual 38-31 loss to TCU, the offense had little to show with zero points and only 68 total yards. With a big play required to jump-start KU’s fourth drive, quarterback Jalon Daniels threw a strike down the middle of the field with Mason Fairchild his intended target. Fairchild turned his head to the right to look for the ball but didn’t see it, so he made a split-second adjustment to turn left, stick his hands out and reeled in the catch with the ball almost completely even with his body. Although the drive would end with a Daniels fumble at the one-yard line, the big play proved to be one of several big plays Fairchild produced in a career day for the senior

Dnoll is in Spain News

What if you got a whole city to yourself? With the infatuation of visiting only the “best” places, the places constantly featured in those instagram videos where someone is fluffing her giant dress or where you have to actually wait in a line to get a view of a cliff side, it’s nice to go somewhere no one else goes. We’ve mapped out some quick day trips from Sevilla during our time here and Écija was our first venture out of the city. Apparently no one else was going there. Perfect.

This place is no longer a secret. When we were in Sevilla for an extended time at the beginning of 2014, we didn’t even know that this place existed. After all, it was still a private residence. But after opening its doors to tourists in 2016, the Palacio de las Dueñas has become one of the must see sights in Sevilla.

We ordered our drinks amidst the chaos and were ready to go. My wife had a house vermouth and I ordered a vino de naranja, an aged white wine with macerated oranges. Off to a good start. But the people come to Bar Santa Ana not only for the ambiance and free flowing cervezas (they changed the kegs at least once, maybe twice while we were there) but also for the chicharrones which are said to be among the best in the city. I’d have to agree. They were crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. But what made the chicharrones at Bar Santa Ana so good is the seasoning. It’s salty but tangy, kind of like an American dry barbeque rub, but with Spanish flavors. They were really tasty and we’ll go back for more soon.

It’s no secret that the people in Sevilla (and all of Spain for that matter) love to eat and drink. Bars, restaurants, cafes, abacerías, and tabernas are packed every day, morning, day, and night. Large groups out for a night on the town, couples swooning over each other, families, people of all ages, it doesn’t matter. Everyone is out. Places are full for breakfast between 9 and 11am, lunch between 1:30 and 3pm, and dinner and tapas from 9pm until well past midnight. And I can’t forget the magical merienda time from about 5pm to 6:30 where a beverage and sweet snack is the norm. Spaniards love to eat and they seem to be doing it constantly.
