Big Ten struggling to fill 8 reserved bowl slots

Sports

November 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

No. 4 Ohio State is chasing perfection and a chance play for a national championship. No. 18 Michigan State has the inside track to the Big Ten championship game. Four other conference teams are bowl-eligible and Iowa could join that list with a win this weekend.

But with only four weeks left in the regular season, the Big Ten is looking at the possibility of coming up short in postseason play again — even before the bowl lineups are announced. With eight bowl tie-ins, six qualifiers and Iowa on the cusp, the last available spot will have to be filled by one of three teams that are a combined 1-12 in league play this season: Illinois, Indiana or Northwestern.

Chiefs active Commings from IR, waive McDougald

Sports

November 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have activated rookie defensive back Sanders Commings from injured reserve and waived defensive back Bradley McDougald to clear space on their roster. The moves came Tuesday during the Chiefs’ bye week. After impressing the Chiefs during the offseason, Commings broke his collar bone on the first full day of workouts in training camp. He was placed on the temporary IR and the Chiefs had until this week to active him.

Commings was picked in the fifth round of April’s draft out of Georgia. Many scouts believed he had the ability to go much earlier in the draft, but some legal issues during his time with the Bulldogs caused his stock to slide. McDougald, an undrafted free agent out of Kansas, played in one game this season.

Iowa’s offense takes step backward

November 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — With less than a month left in the 2013 regular season, Iowa’s offense is starting to look more and more like the 2012 version. That’s not a good thing for the Hawkeyes.

Iowa (5-4, 2-3 Big Ten) has taken a big step backward the past two weeks. The Hawkeyes have scored just 19 points in regulation and are now tied for 11th in the Big Ten at 25.3 points per game heading into Saturday’s game at Purdue.

The rushing game, once among the nation’s best, is now averaging a pedestrian 4.3 yards per carry. The passing game isn’t much better, with just 205 yards per game and 12 TDs against 10 interceptions.

Imperfect Chiefs carry perfect record into bye

Sports

November 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs are an imperfect team with a perfect record. Their offense has been sluggish at best, sloppy at worst. Their defense has given up big plays. Their special teams have made a few mistakes that could have proven costly. Still, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith points out that even if everything went perfectly, the Chiefs wouldn’t have any better record than the 9-0 mark they carry into their week off.

The Chiefs met to review video of Sunday’s 23-13 win over Buffalo on Monday before scattering for their bye. While players are enjoying some time off, the coaches plan to begin preparation for a high-profile showdown with AFC West rival Denver the following week.

The Chiefs visit the 7-1 Broncos on Nov. 17.

Cardinals will make qualifying offer for Beltran

Sports

November 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have made a one-year, $14.1 million qualifying offer to free agent Carlos Beltran, though they aren’t expecting him back next year. General manager John Mozeliak and manager Mike Matheny met with reporters Monday for the first time since losing a six-game World Series to the Red Sox last week. Mozeliak says he expects the 36-year-old Beltran to seek a multiyear extension elsewhere.

Mozeliak said it would be difficult to guarantee regular playing time to Beltran, who had 15 RBIs in the postseason. Matt Adams is expected to be the everyday first baseman, cleanup man Allen Craig moves to right field and top prospect Oscar Taveras figures to be in the mix.

Rookie Trevor Rosenthal opens spring training as the closer.

Iowa St coach uncertain on starting QB

Sports

November 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Grant Rohach might be getting his chance to try to reverse Iowa State’s free fall through the Big 12 Conference. rohach, a redshirt freshman, is listed as the No. 1 quarterback on the Cyclones’ depth chart for Saturday’s home game against TCU, ahead of season-long starter Sam Richardson. Coach Paul Rhoads says that doesn’t necessarily mean Rohach will take the team’s first snap. Rhoads says it all depends on how the quarterbacks practice this week and Richardson very well could end up starting.

Whatever Rhoads decides, the Cyclones (1-7, 0-5 Big 12) need a big lift at the position. They’ve been outscored 170-41 in the last three games and the offense is struggling just to make a first down.
