Okay, we have the definitive answer to the questions I posed regarding the score by the Kansas Comet (Gale Sayers) in the October 31, 1964 contest between KSU and the wretched Jayhawks. I will post the answer Friday morning. But first we’ll have a little fun, a poll, a survey, to see what faith there is out there in the internet ether in Furnace’s memory. For those of you who forgot, read the following fan post, and then if you so choose, vote in the poll, after the jump:
And to connect this little ditty about Gale Sayers (in my opinion the most graceful and elusive runner of all time) to more recent players and times, the following is from Darren Sproles’ Wiki page:
"On September 14, 2008, Sproles became just the second player in NFL history with 50 rushing yards, 50 receiving yards, and 100 return yards in one game (the other being Gale Sayers with the Chicago Bears). His stats for the game included: 53 rushing yards, 72 receiving yards, and 192 return yards. Sproles logged 317 all-purpose yards in a 39-38 loss to the Denver Broncos. He also had a 103 yard touchdown return"
