Hawkeyes forced to turn to unproven running backs

Sports

April 14th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa has long been known for its punishing running attack. But the Hawkeyes will wrap up spring ball next week with serious questions to answer about their running back situation. Iowa is down to a pair of unproven sophomores, Damon Bullock and De’Andre Johnson, after Marcus Coker’s departure and Jordan Canzeri’s knee injury. True freshmen Greg Garmon and Barkley Hill join the team in August. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says Bullock and Johnson have made consistent improvement this spring. He also says they’ve told Garmon and Hill to do everything they can to be ready to play by the end of the summer.

Iowa State QB race still even

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Nothing has changed in the competition for the starting quarterback job at Iowa State after the Cyclones’ spring game. Jared Barnett and Steele Jantz were even throughout spring practice after both started games last season, and both had good moments in Saturday game, though coach Paul Rhoads was disappointed in their interceptions. Barnett, who started six games in 2011, completed 11 of 21 passes for 67 yards and added 54 yards rushing. He was intercepted twice. Jantz, who started the other seven games last fall, was 20 of 32 for 161 yards, including a nicely thrown ball on a 56-yard completion to Josh Lentz. He threw one interception. Rhoads says he doesn’t have a timetable for naming a starter in the fall.

Cubs Tag Wainwright, Spoil Cardinals Home Opener

Sports

April 13th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Ian Stewart hit a three-run homer in the first inning, Bryan LaHair later connected for a grand slam and the Chicago Cubs hammered Adam Wainwright, spoiling the St. Louis Cardinals’ home opener with a 9-5 victory on Friday. Starlin Castro had three hits and a walk for the Cubs. Chicago has scored 17 runs the last two games after totaling 19 runs in the first six. Wainwright’s first start at home since Sept. 19, 2010, was a total mess from the get-go and tied his worst ever from a statistical standpoint — eight earned runs in just three innings. His outing unraveled just moments after pregame pomp and circumstance that featured 91-year-old Hall of Famer Stan Musial waving from a golf cart to fans who gave him a standing ovation.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Wrestling legend Dan Gable has spent the last 40 years working to help grow the sport that’s defined his life. Supporters won’t need to look at the statue set to be unveiled in Gable’s honor in Iowa City to see the ultimate payoff for those efforts. The U.S. Olympic Team Trials will be held in Carver-Hawkeye Arena on April 21-22 before what is expected to be the largest crowd in the event’s history. Organizers have already sold more than 10,000 tickets, far surpassing the record crowd of 9,434 set 12 years ago in Dallas. The enthusiasm in Iowa has been spurred by four decades of work by the 63-year-old Gable, a former Olympic gold medalist and successful coach.
