Game 5 starters both coming off stingy efforts


October 9th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Heading into Game 5 of their NL division series against Pittsburgh, the Cardinals can take comfort in this: They’re 7-1 the last three years when facing postseason elimination. Though this is the Pittsburgh Pirates’ first playoff appearance since 1992, they’ve looked seasoned, too.

Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright starts Game 5, opposed by rookie Gerrit Cole, who pitched like an ace in his postseason debut. Statistically, the series is almost dead even. The Pirates are batting .189 and have scored 14 runs, while the Cardinals are hitting .192 with 15 runs.

Most Cardinals players participated in an optional workout Tuesday. The Pirates did not work out and were scheduled to arrive later in the day.

Drake basketball has new look


October 8th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Butler, Gonzaga and Davidson are small schools that have succeeded on college basketball’s biggest stage. First-year coach Ray Giacoletti wants to put Drake in that same category.

Giacoletti, who spent the last six years as a Gonzaga assistant, will try to take the first steps in that direction with a team that has a vastly different look from the group that went 15-17 last season under Mark Phelps, who was fired after five years of mediocre results.

Along with a new staff, the Bulldogs have three transfers, two freshmen and two players back in action after missing last season. Of the six returnees, only two were starters: 6-foot-11 Seth VanDeest, who has battled shoulder and knee injuries throughout his career, and point guard Richard Carter.

Hawkeyes might ban punt returns


October 8th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Everyone thought Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz was joking last weekend when he said the Hawkeyes might never return a punt again. Ferentz wasn’t kidding. Ferentz says he’s leaning against sending blockers downfield to help set up returns after Iowa was burned by a fake punt in Saturday’s loss to Michigan State. Ferentz indicated Iowa might always use a punt safe formation in the future, with a returner charged simply with keeping punts from hitting the ground.

The Hawkeyes (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten) have allowed a number of successful fake punts in recent years, including one each in losses to Northern Illinois and the Spartans this season. Iowa next plays at No. 4 Ohio State (6-0, 2-0) on Oct. 19.

Texas WR Davis issues new apology over cut block


October 8th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas wide receiver Mike Davis has issued an apology for a cut block against an Iowa State defender that drew a personal foul penalty, a day after saying he’d “do the same thing” again. Davis was penalized for his block on Deon Broomfield and was publicly reprimanded by the Big 12 for the play last Thursday.

On Monday, Davis said he was glad Broomfield wasn’t hurt. He said the play called for him to block the defender. But he suggested Broomfield wasn’t playing hard and deserved the cut block at his left knee. Davis said: “I’d do the same thing” in a similar situation.

In a statement released Tuesday, Davis says he didn’t want to hurt Broomfield. He apologized to the player and Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby

Rushing offense, defense still key in Big Ten


October 8th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

With a full week of league play in the books, a familiar trend has emerged in the Big Ten. Running the ball — and stopping others from doing likewise — will likely be huge for teams hoping to contend in the conference this season.

Five Big Ten teams rank in the top 25 nationally in rushing offense, the most of any conference in the country. The Big Ten is also first with six teams ranked in the top 20 in rushing defense, and four of them; Michigan State, Ohio State, Iowa and Michigan, are among the top 10. By contrast, Indiana is the only league team in the top 30 in passing offense.
