Over a month ago, the KISS were the doormat of the Arena Football League. They were a team at the time that was confused, dejected, and at times embarrassed to step on the field, only to be blown out each game. This season has also become a trend for the LA KISS, where before the seats would even get warm, they would find themselves down by at least two scores. No matter how you look at it now, the KISS are a completely different football team. Losing Adrian McPherson to that-league-up-North did nothing as Danny Southwick has now become a blessing in disguise. Head Coach Bob McMillen now has a chip on his shoulder and can actually say that not only is he proud of the way his troops are playing, but that they are playing at a much more consistent level. Sunday felt weird, but in such a way that not even the most die-hard LA KISS fan would even expect. By far the KISS played their best 30 minutes of football in the team’s history. The KISS managed to be the first to make that happen. They have had leads before going into the break, but the way the KISS had complete control was unthinkable. Arvell Nelson finally got the Shock offense back on track and in four plays to open the second half, found Nuck Truesdell for a 12 yard strike.
HERSHEY, Pa. — Whether it’s sometime in the next few months or 20 years from now, Brett Brumbaugh is going to reminisce about his final three visits to Hersheypark Stadium — and then crack a grin. Perhaps buoyed by South Fayette’s victory against Dunmore in December in the PIAA Class AA championship, not to mention a quick start, Brumbaugh definitely made the most of his opportunities Saturday night as Pennsylvania claimed a 20-3 victory... Brumbaugh’s truncated outing was impressive, however, as this 6-foot-4, 200-pound quarterback ticketed for Duquesne was 5-for-7 passing for 219 yards and three touchdowns. Brumbaugh hooked up with Harrisburg’s Amechie Walker on the first play from scrimmage, completing a 63-yard scoring heave just 13 seconds in that gave Pennsylvania a 6-0 lead. Brumbaugh’s dart to Woodland Hills receiver Arthur Thompkins led to Pennsylvania’s second touchdown with 5:14 left in the half. After a Pennsylvania defensive stop, Brumbaugh flashed his right arm one more time on a flea-flicker that led to an 86-yard touchdown pass at the 2:59 mark.
The members of the 1976 Indiana basketball team remain close after all these years, four decades on from their season together. They reminisce about ribald moments and great games and lessons from Coach Bob Knight. Among one another the players rarely mention their 32-0 record, the sport’s last undefeated season, the accomplishment 38-0 Kentucky can match with two more wins in next weekend’s Final Four. “We’re very boring,” current Saint Louis Coach Jim Crews, a senior guard on the 1976 team, said with a laugh. “I’m sure I’m not 100 percent right, but in all my conversations – and we’ve been friends for 40 years – we never talk about it. We got honored last year as the best team ever in the NCAA, and we didn’t talk about it then. They are not the 1972 Miami Dolphins, popping champagne when the final loss column is filled every year. The Hoosiers remain secure in their place in history, proud of their success but still charitable toward Kentucky’s accomplishment. “We kind of feel records are made to be broken,” said Scott May, Indiana’s leading scorer in 1976. “I mean, Jesus, we’ve held the record for 39 years. Wayne Radford, a sophomore guard who came off Indiana’s bench in 1976, receives calls from friends who aren’t former teammates every year when the final unbeaten team loses to tell him, “Your record is safe.

Did you take any souvenirs from the set? "There were two little furry, stuffed-animal kind of things. One was a monkey that was on Meredith's desk. And one was a duck that you press and it makes all of these quacks for an insanely long amount of time.
