Chiefs Bet On USC-Mizzou
The Kansas City Chiefs are having an amazing year …
After finishing the 2012 season with a 2-14 record, the retooled franchise is off to an 8-0 start. As a result, the mood in the locker room is light and loose … unlike down in Dallas, where the 4-4 Cowboys resemble one of those catty housewives’ reality shows.
The Chiefs placekicker is Ryan Succop, a University of South Carolina graduate who was taken with the very last pick of the 2009 draft. Since then, Succop has converted 112 of 137 field goals (81.2 percent) – including 17 kicks of more than 50 yards – and all 129 of his extra points.
Not a bad return on investment …
Also on the Chiefs’ roster is backup quarterback Chase Daniel, a University of Missouri grad who posted a pair of 4,300-yard passing seasons (and threw for more than 100 touchdowns) during three years as the Tigers’ starting quarterback.
According to Yahoo! Sports, Succop and Daniel made a friendly wager on last weekend’s South Carolina-Missouri game – a thrilling double overtime come-from-behind win for the Gamecocks.
A defeated Daniel was forced to wear a Gamecock hat and squeeze into an extra small “real women love football” T-shirt featuring a Gamecock logo.
