NCAA Title Game Pins Teammates Against One Another from The Mothership

And then there were two.

The Louisville Cardinals and Michigan Wolverines are playing for a national championship tonight, with two Kansas City Chiefs WRs, Josh Bellamy (Louisville) and Junior Hemingway (Michigan), each pulling for his former school.

Hours before tonight's tipoff, I ventured downstairs in search of analysis about Saturday night's wins and Monday-night predictions.

Charting The Best Offensive Tackles from KC Star

Fun Fact: Joeckel's twin brother Matt is a quarterback at Texas A&M.

Sleeper: Terron Armstead, Arkansas-Pine Bluff

Chiefs needs: With Branden Albert on a one-year contract and holding out from offseason conditioning, the Chiefs need to seize this chance to secure left tackle for the long run.

Draft Spotlight - Day 16: Eddie Lacy from The Mothership

Eddie Lacy left his mark on college football in spectacular fashion, rushing 20 times for 140 yards and one TD, during Alabama's 42-14 victory over Notre Dame, winning the BCS National Championship for the second-straight year, while earning the game's offensive MVP award.

It seemed to be only a matter of time for Lacy, who played behind teammates and current NFL running backs Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson, during his first two years on campus. However, when it came time for Lacy to shine, he made the most of it, especially in 2012.

Team Needs: Kansas City Chiefs from ProFootballTalk

We have seen far worse holders of the No. 1 pick than the 2013 Chiefs. This is a team that had a half-dozen Pro Bowl representatives in January - and all of them are still on the roster. Still, they have some work to do in April. With a good draft, a climb out of the cellar in the AFC West wouldn't shock anyone, especially with the Raiders and Chargers trying to climb back into contention themselves. Finally, the Smith trade opens some options for the Chiefs. They don't need a quarterback this year. If any team falls in love with a prospect, the Chiefs shouldn't let the call go to voicemail.

Hy-Vee Invests In Major-League Marketing Plan from The Kansas City Business Journal

Hy-Vee already sponsors the Kansas City Chiefs. At Arrowhead, the grocery store has a gate sponsorship, the Hy-Vee Hot Zone concert venue and an Airstream trailer that serves as a box seat with a full view of the field. Hy-Vee also hosts tailgating competitions and brings in celebrity chefs.

Volunteers Hawk Papers For Kids On Greater Kansas City Day from KC Star

The mood was festive at 63rd and Prospect, with a bagpipe quartet playing while former Kansas City Chiefs Bobby Bell and Warren Moon sold papers.

"We are going to help young kids go to camp and that's really what it's all about," Moon said. "It gives kids a positive environment and some fun during the summer. We have to help those who can't help themselves.

Environmental News from

EPA Region 7 and the Kansas City Chiefs today announced Extra Yard for the Environment, the football club's sustainability initiative. The program is designed to devise and implement new green policies for the Kansas City Chiefs while raising awareness for green efforts at Arrowhead Stadium, the University of Kansas Hospital Training Complex and for fans at home.

To launch Extra Yard for the Environment, the Chiefs will host a community-wide recycling drive at Arrowhead Stadium on Saturday, April 20 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. As part of the kickoff for Earth Day on Monday, April 22, EPA will join the Chiefs, along with a number of other local vendors, to help facilitate a one-stop recycling opportunity for metro-area residents.

Mile High Monday: AFC West Offseason Update from Predominately Orange

Kansas City has made more changes in the offseason than any other team out there, and rightfully so. To say they were an embarrassment last season would be an insult to embarrassments. They brought in a new general manager, head coach, and quarterback to completely overhaul the organization. Alex Smith is certainly an upgrade behind center, but many doubt that he is a quarterback that can take a team to the Super Bowl, including myself. Most Chiefs fans would probably be content if he could just score a few points and make them competitive.

Jets, Revis In No-Win Showdown from FOX Sports

There's uncomfortable and then there's awkward.

Uncomfortable might be Kansas City Chiefs offensive tackle Branden Albert openly stating that he wants to "stay away" from the team's facilities until he has to be there, as he said last week, three weeks removed from having the franchise tag placed on him. Awkward is having Revis, a respected, well-liked team leader and a perennial All-Pro, being forced to show up for OTAs despite his current uncertainty with the team.
