Blake Cripps hosts, Tommy Castor returns after 6 weeks off for the birth of his new baby and more big news: this is the last show for original host Weston Mills, who is stepping away from the podcast.  So, with all of that news, let's get right into a new episode!(04:03) Weston Mills kicks off the show discussing his plans to leave Keeper of the Games after 73 episodes.(06:30) To put it nicely, the Kansas City Royals have limped into the All Star Break and there really is very little to be excited or hopeful about for KC.  They enter the break with a record of 36-53, 17 games under .500.  Since this season is a bust, what does the future look like for the Royals? Is there any hope?(35:05) Time for a Wichita Wind Surge update. The Surge are in 1st place by the skin of their teeth in the Double A Central Division.  They play an exciting (and at times nervewracking) brand of baseball, but how sustainable is it long term?(49:22) Final topic of the day is the wild story about Kansas football and the allegations by a former player and his family that they were silenced about their harrassment from teammates and that Les Miles enabled the situation.  But how legitimate is the story and what purpose does it serve? The guys discuss.(1:08:07) Time for our Wichita Whiparound and it's all about youth basketball, Newman Jets baseball, Tyson Etienne returning to Wichita State and more!Make sure to hit subscribe so you never miss an episode. You can listen on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, iHeartRadio, TuneIn Radio and more! Check out our new website at www.kogsports.com. Watch full episodes on YouTube and Facebook by searching for Keeper of the Games. Follow us on Twitter and Instagram @KOGpod. Follow Weston @Wmills94, Blake @becripps & Tommy @TweetsFromTommy. #KOGpod

    Keeper of the Games is back and it's NFL Draft Week! Settle in and enjoy our new episode as we break down the Draft and more!! (05:26) The NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday evening, but the Kansas City Chiefs don't have a pick in the 1st round. Last week, KC traded away their 1st round pick in exchange for OT Orlando Brown from the Baltimore Ravens. The Chiefs have rebuilt their offensive line after their Super Bowl loss in February, but what will the draft hold for the Chiefs? (32:09) Many sources are saying the search for the next head football coach at the University of Kansas and an announcement could be imminent. Most sources are leaning either toward Lance Leipold from Buffalo or Jeff Monken from Army being hired as the next HC by new AD Travis Goff. Can you go wrong with either coach? Is it ok to be cautiously optimistic? The guys debate. (53:18) The Kansas City Royals are still, at the time of this recording, in 1st place in the AL Central and have the best record in the American League. The pitching has stabilized and KC is getting good offensive production from several guys including Carlos Santana. Can KC continue to ride the wave into the month of May? (1:07:08) This weekend will be a crucial one for both Wichita State baseball and Wichita State softball. Baseball takes on #8 East Carolina this weekend at home after dropping 3 of 4 on the road last weekend to Cincinnati. Meanwhile, softball will battle league leading Tulsa this weekend after dropping 3 of 4 last weekend to USF. Softball did take down #11 Oklahoma State on Tuesday evening. (1:22:51) It's our #WichitaWhiparound and this week we discuss topics like Wichita Thunder hockey, Newman University women's soccer and an inspiring story about a dad and little league coach in Wichita losing his battle against cancer, but his son still played a little league game the next day and how it brought the community together.

    Keeper of the Games is back and even without Weston Mills, who is out sick this week, we are ready to roll with Blake Cripps and Tommy Castor! (04:33) We lead off the show with a topic we've been saying for weeks should actually lead the show, and we finally do it. Wichita State Softball continues to be on a roll. They took 3 of 4 games from UCF last weekend (the 4th game ended in a 0-0 tie) before snapping their win streak on Wednesday vs. Kansas. The Shockers control their own destiny to snag a conference regular season title. Shocker baseball had a rough weekend vs. Tulane, but look to bounce back against Cincinnati this weekend. (26:12) The Kansas City Royals are still, at the time of this recording, in 1st place in the AL Central with a record of 10-7 after their walk-off win vs. the Rays. Their pitching has been suspect outside of Danny Duffy, but their hitting has been solid for the most part. That being said, is this 1st place record and the early success of the Royals fools gold? Blake and Tommy debate. (47:15) It continues to be a busy time in the transfer portal, for all 3 Kansas college hoops teams. For WSU, they add Joe Pleasant from Abilene Christian, while Tyson Etienne declares for the NBA Draft. KU and KSU are also dealing with players announcing they are leaving, but both teams continue to pick up new players. Also on this episode, the guys discuss the breaking news that Marcus Garrett will not return to KU and will declare for the NBA Draft with the intent to stay in the draft. (1:13:24) It's our #WichitaWhiparound and this week we discuss Friends University baseball and soccer and Wichita Wind Surge single game tickets now on sale. We end the show with a discussion on the next KU football coach, plus an update about Newman University baseball this weekend. Make sure to hit subscribe so you never miss an episode.

(02:57) We're about at the midseason mark for the Wichita Thunder, so the voice of the Thunder, Jason Mals joins KOGpod for an update on the season, and what's up next for the Thunder! (28:24) The Kansas City Royals, at the time of this recording sit in 2nd place in the AL Central. They had a letdown game on Monday vs. the Angels, but followed it up with a 2015-esque win, led by the bullpen on Tuesday. The boys give their recap on where KC stands right now. (49:10) It's a topic that nobody enjoys discussing, but it is relevant to sports in the area as Britt Reid, former assistant with the Kansas City Chiefs (and Andy Reid's son) has been charged in the accident that left a 5 year old girl critically injured. The guys discuss the latest in the case. (1:01:58) It continues to be a busy time in the transfer portal, especially for Kansas basketball as freshman Bryce Thompson has decided to leave the Jayhawk program, meaning the entire freshman class has left KU. Also Ochai Agbaji and Jalen Wilson have declared for the NBA draft. On a positive note, Drake transfer Joseph Yesufu has committed to play for KU next season. (1:16:20) The good times keep rolling for Shocker baseball and softball. Baseball has won 7 straight, including winning 7 of 8 against Houston (and getting the first victory in the brand new Riverfront Stadium). Softball has won 10 straight and received their first Top 25 ranking in school history. (1:31:04) It's our #WichitaWhiparound and this week we discuss big topics like a familiar name returning to coach City League hoops, the TBT returning to Wichita this year and potential trouble brewing with college tournaments choosing Wichita, according to Wichita's mayor.

    Buckle up boys and girls! Time for a brand new episode of the Wildly Underqualified, Yet Mildly Entertaining Sports Podcast for Wichita & Beyond - Keeper of the Games!! Tommy Castor is joined this week by the one and only Blake Cripps, voice of the Newman University Jets! Also, Weston Mills is back on the program this week as he awaits the birth of his brand new daughter!! It's a jam packed show, so let's get right into it. (02:51): We start the show with probably the most controversial and troubling story that we've ever discussed on this podcast and that is the situation surrounding Gregg Marshall at Wichita State University. Tommy, Weston and Blake try to unpack and tackle the disturbing allegations of physical and verbal abuse by the Shockers head coach against players, other coaches and community members. WSU is in the middle of an internal investigation. The guys debate what's going on, what the outcome may be and who else, outside of the coach himself is to blame for this whole situation. Easily our longest one topic discussion on this show, it may be polarizing but it's important. (50:43): Weston, Blake and Tommy recap the 40-32 loss on Sunday for Kansas City against the Las Vegas Raiders. Tommy called it a trap game the week before and was it ever for KC. The guys discuss how Patrick Mahomes can't always look superhuman, plus lapses on defense contributed to the loss. The guys look ahead to the next Monday afternoon matchup against the Buffalo Bills and recap some injury news for KC. (1:12:39): Another big win on Saturday on the road for the Kansas State Wildcats as they defeat TCU 21-14 to move to 3-1 on the season and 3-0 in the Big 12. Tommy thinks the Wildcats are for real as they lead the Big 12 standings, Weston and Blake are still not so sure. The guys debate that and also K-State's effectiveness without Skylar Thompson who is out for the season. (1:23:15): If things couldn't get worse for KU football, Les Miles tested positive for COVID-19, but still plans to coach Kansas on Saturday against West Virginia. Also, Brent Dearmon says Miles Kendrick will start at QB for the Jayhawks, however Thomas Macvittie will be available, so more QB carousel news for KU. (1:27:45): A quick KU basketball update as the Border War with Missouri, scheduled to start this season has been cancelled for this year and will actually start next season, due to COVID-19. (1:29:22): Our #WichitaWhiparound's is another prep football update around the Wichita metro from this past week and a look ahead to the prep action this weekend.
