Former Chiefs guard Will Shields is elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame

Shields was the bedrock of the Chiefs’ offensive line of the 1990s and 2000s and a 12-time Pro Bowl selection. “It was a great day,” said a beaming Shields, who was in his fourth year of eligibility after retiring following the 2006 season. His induction will be Aug. 8 in Canton, Ohio.

KU chalkboard: How Wayne Selden helped protect the rim against K-State

One of the themes of this Kansas basketball season has been the lack of a classic rim-protector. For the better part of six years, the Jayhawks have played with an elite shot-blocker in the middle, from Cole Aldrich to Jeff Withey to Joel Embiid. (The one exception was the 2010-11 season, when a sophomore Withey played sparingly, and the Jayhawks terrorized opponents with a Morrii/Thomas Robinson frontcourt.)

KU team’s multiple personalities have become its personality

At times, Kansas coach Bill Self says, “we can really, really, really guard.” Other times, KU’s defensive game is “average,” which in Self-speak is code for unacceptable. Such peaks and dips and ruts and spurts are to be expected in the course of a season, naturally — but Self was talking about a more compressed time frame.

Former Chief Will Shields made impact in KC that went beyond football

The Pro Football Hall of Fame is about football first and football only. The men that Will Shields is to join with induction are the best players our country’s most popular sport has seen, and by that demanding standard the former Chiefs lineman is now certified. But — and we mean no offense to the Pro Football Hall of Fame here — football is not even close to the best thing about Shields.
