B-Mac right at home

It's possible that Kansas University football coach Mark Mangino never has scouted a single high school player more than running back Brandon McAnderson. Of course, there's a reason for that.

It had far more penetrating social impact - Nov. 9, 1912, when Pop Warner's lightly regarded Carlisle Indians romped, 27-6, past a befuddled Army club suffering its only loss of the season.
