Musings at the mid-week:
■ That rivalry worth all the sunflowers was uneventful, particularly with how Auburn upset Alabama.
■ In what was one of the greatest Saturdays in college football, Kansas State and Kansas waged one of the worst games.
■ K-State got up 21-0 one play into the second quarter, then let its defense, and John Hubert, man the cruise control.
■ The lifting never got heavy. KU, despite instructions to make this a rivalry, was not up to it.
