January 14th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Peter Jok scored 19 of his 23 points in the first half to help No. 16 Iowa build a huge lead and the Hawkeyes went on to rout No. 4 Michigan State 76-59 on Thursday night. The Hawkeyes (13-3, 4-0 Big Ten) dominated the Spartans for the second time in two weeks and beat them on the road for the first time since 1993, ending an 18-game losing streak.

Michigan State (16-2, 3-2) was down by 22 points at halftime, its largest deficit at home since at least the 1996-97 season and its biggest anywhere in the regular season since trailing at Michigan by 23 points at halftime in 1997, according to STATS.

Denzel Valentine had a relatively lackluster game with 14 points, five assists and four rebounds for the stunned Spartans.

Chiefs’ Pederson focused on Patriots, not Philly job

Sports

January 13th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson says his interview for the vacant head coaching job in Philadelphia went “great,” but he insists he is focused on the New England Patriots. The Chiefs visit the reigning Super Bowl champions for a playoff game Saturday.

Pederson interviewed for the Philadelphia job Sunday. He started nine games at quarterback for the Eagles in 1999, and began his NFL coaching career under Andy Reid in 2009 as a quality control coach. Pederson followed Reid to Kansas City in 2013 as his offensive coordinator.

The Eagles have also interviewed Tom Coughlin, Duce Staley, Pat Shurmur and Ben McAdoo. Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase also interviewed before taking the job in Miami.

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State coach Matt Campbell has named Jim Hofher as his passing game coordinator, completing his first staff with the Cyclones. Hofher has 35 years of experience at the college level, including 13 years as a head coach at Cornell and Buffalo. Hofher spent the past three seasons as the assistant head coach at Nevada.

Hofher will work under coordinator Tom Manning, who’ll be in his first season running an offense. Iowa State went 3-9 last season, leading to the dismissal of coach Paul Rhoads. The Cyclones will hold their annual spring game on April 16.
