Cyclones brush off lack of buzz for Iowa game

Sports

September 9th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — The annual matchup between the Cyclones and Hawkeyes is viewed as perhaps the biggest sporting event of the year in Iowa. The game might not feel quite so big this year though, because Iowa and Iowa State are off to unimpressive starts. The Cyclones insist that Saturday’s matchup will be as intense as ever.

Iowa State is 0-1 after losing to FCS school Northern Iowa. The only win for the Hawkeyes (1-1) came last weekend against lowly FCS opponent Missouri State. Those early stumbles have threatened to take some of the buzz out of the 61st meeting between the state’s largest schools. Cyclones coach Paul Rhoads says this week is always electric, adding that there is great energy and emotion surrounding this game.

Branstad celebrates wrestling staying in Olympics

Sports

September 9th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Gov. Terry Branstad is celebrating a victory with the announcement that wrestling will remain an Olympic sport.  Speaking by telephone to reporters from a trade mission in Japan, Branstad says being in Tokyo when the International Olympic Committee first announced the 2020 games would be held in the city and then the news that wrestling would remain has been a tremendous experience.

Branstad helped launch a website last winter to lobby Olympic officials to keep wrestling. Branstad says 25,000 people joined the effort and 30 other governors wrote to the IOC to support wrestling. The IOC voted in February to drop the sport. On Sunday the committee admitted it was a big mistake and voted wrestling back onto the program for the 2020 and 2024 Games.

Chiefs RB Charles leaves opener with quad injury

Sports

September 9th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles has left the season opener against Jacksonville with a quadriceps injury.  Charles returned for two carries, but then headed to the sideline for good in the fourth quarter.  Charles was injured in the third period when he got sandwiched on a tackle between Jaguars linebackers Geno Hayes and Paul Posluszny.

He finished with 16 carries for 77 yards and a touchdown. He also caught three passes for 23 yards. His 2-yard TD run in the second put the Chiefs ahead 21-2.  Team trainers looked at Charles on the sideline, and then the running back got on a stationary bike for a few minutes before jogging into the locker room for further observation.

Chiefs score early, dominate Jaguars in 28-2 win

Sports

September 8th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Alex Smith threw two early touchdown passes, Kansas City’s defense dominated all day and the Chiefs began the Andy Reid era with a 28-2 victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jamaal Charles ran for 77 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game with a quadriceps injury, but that was about the only negative for the Chiefs.

Jacksonville advanced past its own 36-yard line just once, a stunning display of offensive futility for the rebuilding franchise. The Jaguars finished with 178 yards, but for most of the game were challenging the team low of 117 yards set last year against Houston.

It wasn’t even close to the start the new coach Gus Bradley wanted, but it was a clear indication of how far the team has to go.

Wacha’s arm, bat lead Cards to sweep over Pirates

Sports

September 8th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Michael Wacha pitched seven shutout innings and drove in two runs as the St. Louis Cardinals routed the Pittsburgh Pirates 9-2 Sunday for a three-game sweep. The Cardinals outscored Pittsburgh 26-10 overall in taking the NL Central lead.

The Pirates arrived at Busch Stadium this weekend with a 1½-game division lead and a chance to cement their first winning season since 1992. They left trailing the Cardinals by 1½ games and still stuck on 81 victories.

Wacha (3-0) allowed two hits and walked two, both of which were erased on double plays. He struck out two and never had more than one runner on at a time. Pittsburgh starter Charlie Morton (7-4) left with discomfort in his left foot in the second inning. He allowed five runs on six hits and two walks in 1 2-3 innings.
