Cyclones seek to get bowl eligible against Kansas

Sports

November 16th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Paul Rhoads ticked off in his head, one by one, the number of questions it took this week before someone finally asked him about his Cyclones winning their sixth game. “That’s not bad. I thought it would take two,” the Iowa State coach said with a smile.

The Cyclones (5-5, 2-5 Big 12) haven’t been to a postseason game in back-to-back years since the 2005-06 seasons, when they went under former coach Dan McCarney. The program has only been to 11 in its meager history, including the Pinstripe Bowl against Rutgers last December.

Iowa State can become eligible by beating Kansas on Saturday or West Virginia in its finale.

Chiefs’ draft history big reason for 1-8 record

Sports

November 16th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli has often said free agency is a flawed way to build a team, where players available are often overpriced or on the downward side of their careers. Sure, it’s always necessary to sign a few guys to plug holes, but Pioli would much rather draft the right guys, develop them from within the organization, and generate the kind of stability that has made franchises such as the Pittsburgh Steelers the model of NFL success.

Problems arise when you don’t draft the right guys, though. The result can be a 1-8 record.

Chiefs OL Jon Asamoah has surgery on thumb

Sports

November 16th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs offensive lineman Jon Asamoah will miss Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals after surgery on one of his thumbs. Wide receiver Jon Baldwin has not been cleared following a head injury sustained in last week’s game against Pittsburgh and is unlikely to be available. Tight end Jake O’Connell is also expected to miss the game with an ankle injury.

The Chiefs have been ravaged by injuries this season. Center Rodney Hudson, tight end Kevin Boss and defensive end Glenn Dorsey are all on injured reserve. Quarterbacks Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn have both sustained concussions.

Russ Hochstein is likely to start in place of Asamoah on the line. Steve Breaston and Dexter McCluster would help fill the void left by Baldwin.

Iowa throttles Howard 66-36

November 16th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Junior Devyn Marble scored a season-high 22 points and Iowa throttled Howard 66-36 on Thursday night for its third straight win. Aaron White added 16 points and eight rebounds for the Hawkeyes (3-0), who cruised despite hitting just four 3s in 21 tries.

Iowa took a 36-16 halftime lead over the overmatched Bison and never looked back. The Hawkeyes held Howard to the fewest points scored against them under third-year coach Fran McCaffery. Mike Phillips had 11 to lead Howard (0-2), a MEAC school coming off a 10-21 season in 2011-12.

November 16th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Josey Jewell led Decorah’s power running game with 160 yards and three touchdowns and the Vikings beat Bishop Heelan CAtholic 49-21 Thursday night to win the Class 3A state championship. Holt Johansen added two touchdowns for Decorah, while Jacob Kvale scored one and passed for one as the Vikings (14-0) won their first state title since 1989 and their fifth overall. Heelan (12-2), which has won three titles, lost in the championship game for the eighth time.

Decorah contained Heelan’s pass-heavy spread offense for most of the game and intercepted the Crusaders’ Trent Solsma three times, with all three picks setting up touchdowns. Solsma threw two touchdown passes, the second coming after Decorah had built a 49-14 lead. Solsma finished 13 of 29 for 202 yards and was sacked twice.

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Stone Kane barreled into the end zone from a yard out with 1:39 left to give  Wapsie Valley a 21-14 victory over Hinton on Thursday in the Class A state championship game in Cedar Falls. Wapsie Valley (14-0) drove 80 yards in nine plays for the winning touchdown after Hinton’s Matthias Gross-Holtick hooked a 28-yard field goal try. It’s the fifth state title for Wapsie Valley, which also has won championships in Class 1A and 2A. Hinton (10-4), a surprise finalist after winning three road games in the playoffs, saw its final hopes end when Jason Vander Kooi’s pass after a double reserve was intercepted. Tyler Odneal scored Wapsie Valley’s first two touchdowns on runs of 10 and 50 yards. Morgan Wenzel threw a pair of touchdown passes for Hinton.

MMC Beats Don Bosco 51-16 for 8-Man Title

November 16th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Tanner Utesch scored three touchdowns, passed for two and caught a TD pass, leading Marcus MMC past Gilbertville Don Bosco 51-16 Thursday for the eight-player state championship. MMC (14-0) dominated a Don Bosco team that had scored 78 points in the semifinals and capped a season of firsts. It was the school’s first year of eight-player football, first appearance in the title game and it came under a first-year coach, Kyle Oswald. The Eagles built a 37-0 lead in Cedar Falls when Utesch leaped between two defenders to catch an 8-yard scoring pass from running back Andrew Hoefling with 38 seconds left in the first half. Don Bosco (12-1) was shut out until Jake Hogan threw two touchdown passes in the final 5 minutes.
