The Bear Watch - The Fighting Manginos are 2-0


The Bear Watch
You can have Pete Carroll with his hyper motivation on the sidelines or the sleazy and cool St. Jim Tressel from Ohio State.....give me Mark “Bear” Mangino....I love this guy....plus, he is a graduate of Youngstown State University - my alma mater and place of current employment....

The Fighting Manginos of Kansas are off to a 2-0 mark as they have outscored their first two opponents (Central Michigan and SE Louisiana) by a combined score of 114-7.....the first time in Kansas history that they scored 50 or more points in back-to-back games...right now, Kansas has the ninth best defense in the nation - giving up 184 total yards per game....

This week the Fighting Manginos are looking to avenge their 37-31 overtime loss at Toledo last season....it was a game that Kansas should have flat out won, but they could not finish and Toledo escaped with the victory....so far this season, quarterback Todd Reesing has thrown for 518 yards and six touchdowns....the running attack is shared between Bra McAnderson and Jake Sharp who have combined for 308 yards and four touchdowns....Kansas has also been deadly on special teams as they have already brought back a kick-off and punt for a touchdown....

The weapon that Bear has utilized this year is All-American candidate at cornerback Aqib Talib....Talib has also been used on the offensive side of the ball and has scored two receiving touchdowns....expect more highlights this week as Toledo has surrendered 52 points to both Purdue and C. Michigan....the Fighting Manginos get their revenge.....Kansas 56-14....the Bear is growling baby!!!
