Iowa RB Bullock the latest hope for Hawkeyes

Sports

August 29th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Damon Bullock will step into perhaps the most treacherous position in college football on Saturday when he starts at running back for Iowa. The Hawkeyes just can’t seem to keep its tailbacks on the field. Iowa’s bad luck with backs reached a breaking point in the offseason. Five players expected to compete for carries in 2012 won’t be on the field Saturday when the Hawkeyes face Northern Illinois in Chicago. All that’s left is Bullock, a sophomore who also played receiver in 2011, and a pair of true freshman in Greg Garmon and walk-on Michael Malloy. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says Bullock had a good fall camp and that he’s been impressed by Garmon and Malloy.

Chiefs Go with Quinn as Backup Quarterback

Sports

August 28th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Brady Quinn has been picked as the backup quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs, leaving Ricky Stanzi at No. 3 on the depth chart heading into their preseason finale. Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel told the team of his decision before Monday’s practice. The race to back up Matt Cassel had been one of the few open contests for Kansas City during training camp. Quinn signed as a free agent in the offseason, and Stanzi was No. 3 a year ago. Tight end Kevin Boss missed practice for what Crennel called personal reasons. Defensive backs Jalil Brown, Kendrick Lewis and Brandon Flowers were among numerous players who did not participate because of various injuries.  The Chiefs wrap up their preseason Thursday night at Green Bay.

Chiefs Still Trying to Find Identity in Preseason

Sports

August 28th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs are heading toward their preseason finale Thursday night at Green Bay with what appears to be an identity problem. Jamaal Charles and Peyton Hillis give Kansas City one of the league’s best backfields — a quintessential thunder-and-lightning look. And with the play of Matt Cassel at quarterback one of the biggest question marks entering the regular season, there’s little doubt the Chiefs prefer to be a defensive-minded, ball-control team. That makes the way Friday night’s 44-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks played out all the more surprising. New offensive coordinator Brian Daboll aired it out 44 times. Even Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel sounded a bit perplexed by the direction the team is headed, and admitted that it needs to figure out quickly what it does well.

Sports

August 28th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Matt Holliday hit a tiebreaking home run and Kyle Lohse won his eighth consecutive decision, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night. Holliday led off the sixth inning with his 24th homer, a drive to right field off A.J. Burnett that put St. Louis ahead for good at 3-2. Lohse (14-2) pitched five innings before being lifted following a 34-minute rain delay in the top of the sixth. He allowed two runs and five hits while striking out three and walking none. Lohse has not lost in 13 starts dating to June 15 and raised his career record against Pittsburgh to 9-2. Burnett (15-5) gave up four runs, three earned, and seven hits in 5 2-3 innings with three strikeouts and one walk. He lost at home for just second time this season in 10 decisions and 13 starts.

Knott, Klein Lead Deep but Young Iowa State Defense

Sports

August 27th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State knows it can lean heavily on Jake Knott and A.J. Klein, among the best pair of linebackers in the country. It’s the other nine guys on defense who will determine just how far the Cyclones can go in 2012. Iowa State has plenty of depth on a defense that got better as last season wore on. But where all those pieces fit within the big picture still needs to be sorted out as the Cyclones prepare to open the season on Saturday afternoon against Tulsa. Coach Paul Rhoads says the defense has improved since last season, when it allowed nearly 30 points a game. But Iowa State won’t know how much better it is until they face someone else.
