Keegan vs. Tait: Week 12 - This one's for all the marbles

Matt Tait

Like Kansas, Keegan and I laid an egg last week. Maybe it's because we both picked the Jayhawks. So here we head into the final week of the 2013 season, all tied up with five — yep, a season-high FIVE — games different between us. Can't build the drama any ...

Keegan vs. Tait: Week 11

Matt Tait
