Big Ten Surprises Minnesota, Northwestern Both 4-0

Sports

September 25th, 2012 by Jim Field

For all the Big Ten bashing going on, there are a couple feel-good stories playing out at Minnesota and Northwestern.

The Gophers and Wildcats are teams that typically fade from the conference spotlight in October. Right now, both are celebrating 4-0 starts.

Ohio State also has won four straight, but that’s no surprise.

Minnesota already has won one more game than it did all of last season, and Northwestern owns three of the Big Ten’s six wins over BCS-conference opponents.

Minnesota would be 5-0 for the first time since 2004 if it can beat Iowa on the road Saturday. Northwestern opens Big Ten play at home against Indiana.

Ferentz, Hawkeyes Feeling the Heat

September 25th, 2012 by Jim Field

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz shook up his staff in the off season because he believed back-to-back 4-4 finishes in the Big Ten simply wasn’t good enough.

Right now, the Hawkeyes don’t look like they can finish anywhere near .500 in the league.

Iowa’s slow descent into mediocrity sped up on Saturday with a shocking 32-31 loss to Central Michigan.

The reeling Hawkeyes (2-2) on Saturday host Minnesota, which is off to a surprising 4-0 start. Ferentz defended quarterback James Vandenberg and his coaching staff Tuesday while saying the Hawkeyes have to learn from last week’s loss and move on.

Chiefs’ C Hudson, WR McCluster

September 23rd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Kansas City center Rodney Hudson and receiver Dexter McCluster left Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints after being injured in the third quarter. After trainers looked at Hudson’s right knee, he was replaced by Ryan Lilja, who moved over from left guard, while Jeff Allen came in to play guard.

McCluster hurt his shoulder, which had been bothering him during the week, leaving his status as questionable coming into the game. His injury occurred when fell after making a short catch, letting the ball go moments before he would have been touched down by cornerback Jabari Greer. Officials initially ruled McCluster down, but the call was changed on replay review to a fumble recovered by New Orleans. Chiefs officials say McCluster’s return is questionable.
