What a wild day in the sports world yesterday. Tons of upsets in both college basketball and the NFL.
“Definitely,” senior center Gavin Howard said. “After watching film, we’ll forget about (Iowa State). We’ve had K-State circled all season. We’ve had a running clock waiting for this game since the summer. This is the No. 1 game we want to win every single year, so there’s no doubt we’ll bounce back from this.”
The last road victory came in the West Texas town of El Paso, where Kansas leveled UTEP, 34-7, Sept. 12, 2009. Has it really been four-and-a-half seasons since that day? Sometimes, it feels like 20, the last few spent Saturday night in Ames, Iowa, where Iowa State picked up its second victory of the season and first in the Big 12.
“Though it’s flattering to hear things like that, it’s something I don’t put a lot of stock into because the reality of that happening is that it will not occur. My plate is full here. I’m just focused at what is going on at Kansas. It’s flattering but not realistic either,” Self said.
