Gophers-Hawkeyes play for pig, division race

Sports

November 7th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — This game against Iowa was building up to be so big for Minnesota. The Gophers just needed to win at Illinois, a team struggling as much as any in the Big Ten. Then they’d emerge from a week off in sole possession of first place in the West Division, with an unbeaten record in conference play and the benefit of staying home to host the Hawkeyes. Well, the Gophers fumbled away their control of the race with that 28-24 loss.

But the Iowa game is always one of the most-anticipated each year for Minnesota. The Floyd of Rosedale Trophy is at stake, the bronze pig they’ve been playing for since 1935. And the game Saturday will still play a major role in shaping the four-way West Division chase.

Chiefs wide receivers still searching for score

Sports

November 7th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Perhaps it’s just a fluke, but the Kansas city Chiefs are halfway through the season and no wide receiver has caught a touchdown pass yet. The previous time that happened was 2009, when the Cleveland Browns went their first nine games without a wide receiver catching a TD pass.

Still, nobody on the Chiefs sideline appears to be worried about it, especially considering they’re 5-3 and have won five of their past six games heading into Sunday’s game at Buffalo. Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith pointed out that his running backs and tight ends have plenty of touchdown grabs, and it’s only a matter of time until the wide receivers get involved.

Chiefs sign fullback Sherman to extension

Sports

November 5th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Chiefs have signed fullback Anthony Sherman, who has helped pave the way for one of the NFL’s top rushing offenses, to a three-year contract extension. A person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Monday that Sherman can earn up to $7 million over the life of the contract. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Chiefs did not reveal the terms of the contract.

Sherman has started 21 of the 51 games he’s played in over the past four seasons. The past two have been spent in Kansas City, where has been the lead blocker for Jamaal Charles. Sherman has also proven valuable as a short-yardage receiver out of the backfield, catching 36 passes for 315 yards and two touchdowns in his career.

Wadley provides spark for Iowa’s run game

Sports

November 4th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa has received subpar production from experienced running backs for much of the season. Now an unknown freshman is providing a spark for the Hawkeyes. Akrum Wadley turned the first 15 carries of his college career into 106 yards and a touchdown in Saturday’s 48-7 victory over Northwestern. It was the first 100-yard rushing game for an Iowa player this season.

With Jordan Canzeri questionable for this weekend’s game at Minnesota and LeShun Daniels Jr. out for at least the rest of the regular season, Wadley is listed as a starter alongside Mark Weisman.
