Hawkeyes deflect preseason hype

Sports

July 18th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

With preseason camp a little more than two weeks away members of the Iowa football team are ignoring predictions for the upcoming season. After posting an 8-5 record a year ago, including a trip to the Outback Bowl, most of the preseason magazines predict another successful campaign for the Hawkeyes but quarterback Jack Rudock says nobody is satisfied with last year’s results. Rudock says he is focused on the present and not looking at the season as a whole.

Defensive end Drew Ott says he does not pay any attention to the preseason hype. The Hawkeyes open the season at home against UNI on August 30th.

CHARLOTTE (AP) — Lance Stephenson has parlayed his finest NBA season into a new contract with the Charlotte Hornets after four years with Indiana. A person familiar with the contract says Stephenson has agreed to a three-year, $27 million deal with the Michael Jordan-led team, a package that includes a team option for the third season. Stephenson averaged 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists a game for the Pacers last season.

IRVING, Texas (AP) — Quarterback Kyle Orton has been released by the Dallas Cowboys after skipping all offseason workouts amid reports he might retire. The move saves Dallas about $3.25 million this season, but will cost the team about that amount on the salary cap over the next two seasons. Former Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden takes over as Tony Romo’s backup.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Alabama and Southern California will play in the 2016 Cowboys Classic in Arlington, Texas, on Labor Day weekend. The last time Alabama and USC met in the regular season was 1978, when the Crimson Tide were the AP national champions and the Trojans finished No. 1 in the UPI poll. Defending national champion Florida State plays Oklahoma State in this year’s Cowboys Classic on Aug. 30.

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Rangers have agreed to terms with free agent forward Matthew Lombardi. The 32-year-old Lombardi had 20 goals and 50 points in 46 games in Switzerland last season, leading his team in goals and assists, and tied for sixth in the league in goals. Lombardi has 101 goals and 262 points in 536 NHL games.

UNDATED (AP) — Welterweight champ Manny Pacquiao will return to China for his next fight, taking on Chris Algieri Nov. 22 in the gambling enclave of Macau. The scheduled bout comes a year after the Filipino headlined the first big fight card there with a win over Brandon Rios. Pacquiao returns to Macau on a two-fight winning streak that began last September with his win over Rios.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — NASCAR Trucks series driver Erik Jones has been docked 10 championships points after his winning truck failed a post-race inspection last week in Iowa. Jones, driving the No. 51 truck owned by star Kyle Busch, led 131 laps on Friday en route to his first win in 2014. But an inspection revealed that Jones’s truck was too low.

Crew chief Eric Phillips has been fined $6,000 and placed on probation through the end of the calendar year, and Busch was docked 10 owner points. The 18-year-old Jones will make his NASCAR Nationwide series debut this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway.

IRVING, Texas – The Big 12 Conference announced its 2014 preseason All-Big 12 team today and Iowa State senior tight end E.J. Bibbs made the list.

A native of Chicago, Ill., Bibbs has been a unanimous preseason All-Big 12 choice by the majority of the college football publications, earning first-team honors from Athlon’s, Phil Steele, Sporting News, Lindy’s and Bleacher Report.

Bibbs was an All-Big 12 Second-Team selection in 2013 after catching 39 passes for 462 yards. Bibbs’ 39 catches was the second-most ever by a Cyclone tight end in school history. He was the only Cyclone to have multiple receptions in all 12 games a year ago.

Bibbs is on both the Mackey Award and CFPA Award watch lists for the nation’s best tight end.
