UNI prepares for South Dakota


October 8th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

UNI coach Mark Farley says the Panthers need to do a better job of finishing drives and that was a factor in their loss at Indiana State in their Missouri Valley Football Conference opener. The Panthers dropped their conference opener a year ago and that began a five game losing skid. Farley does not think Saturday’s loss will linger. Farley says the Panthers need to be more consistent in the games. They fell behind 14-0 in the opening quarter at Indiana State.

UNI visits South Dakota on Saturday and the Coyotes are expected to regain the services of junior quarterback Kevin Earl. He passed for 370 yards in South Dakota’s overtime win in Cedar Falls last year. South Dakota coach Joe Glenn expects the game to go down to the wire.

The last two years have feature close games, including a South Dakota overtime victory in 2013. Like UNI, the Coyotes are 2-3 overall. South Dakota lost at Southern Illinois 41-10 last week.

Ferentz previews Indiana


October 8th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says everyone will find out together how effective the Hawkeyes’ two quarterback system will be and how long it lasts. Iowa hosts Indiana on Saturday and Jake Rudock will get the start after missing the Big Ten opener at Purdue. C.J. Beathard is also expected to play after leading the Hawks to a pair of road victories. Ferentz says there is no set plan right now on how much each quarterback will play.

He’s not concerned that the system will damage the confidence of both players. Indiana is 3-2 and Ferentz says the Hoosiers are starting to turn the corner under Kevin Wilson. In a year with few impressive non conference wins for Big Ten teams the Hoosiers may have posted the most impressive one with an upset victory at Missouri.

It is important to keep a defense fresh against Indiana’s up tempo offense and Ferentz hopes the Hawkeyes depth on the offensive line is an advantage.

Cardinals sink Kershaw again, head to another NLCS


October 8th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals tagged Clayton Kershaw in the seventh inning for the second straight time, riding Matt Adams’ go-ahead, three-run homer to a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday and a fourth straight trip to the NL Championship Series.

Following their 3-1 win in the best-of-five series, the Cardinals await San Francisco or Washington with their rotation well-rested for the NLCS, which starts Saturday. They would open at home against the Giants or at the Nationals.

Trevor Rosenthal allowed two runners in the ninth before getting Carl Crawford on a game-ending groundout for his third save of the series. Kershaw allowed one homer to left-handed hitters while going 21-3 with a 1.77 ERA in the regular season. He gave up two to the Cardinals, with Matt Carpenter connecting in the opener. The left-handed ace is 0-3 with a 9.72 ERA in his last three postseason appearances, including St. Louis’ clinching Game 6 victory in the NLCS last year.

Chiefs’ Hali lends support as Ebola epidemic rages


October 7th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

LENEXA, Kan. (AP) – Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali is lending his support to a humanitarian organization that plans to open a clinic in his native Liberia to help combat the Ebola epidemic. Hali was joined Tuesday by officials from Heart to Heart International, which is based in suburban Kansas City, to announced the construction of a clinic near the capital of Monrovia that will offer 70 beds for patients stricken by the disease.

Liberia has been among the hardest-hit of the West African nations at the center of the months-long outbreak, which has killed at least 3,500 people. Hali fled with his father from Liberia at the age of 10, when it was in the midst of a bloody civil war. He still has family there but they have not been infected with Ebola.
