Ferentz keeps focus squarely on Michigan

Sports

November 13th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa isn’t giving up on Kirk Ferentz despite a third straight season of diminishing results. The Hawkeyes simply have to hope that the well-respected coach who has twice revived the program has another turnaround in him. Iowa (4-6, 2-4 Big Ten) is on course for its worst season since 2000, when it went 3-9.

The Hawkeyes have lost four games in a row and will need to beat Michigan and Nebraska to qualify for a bowl game. Ferentz says the key for the Hawkeyes is to simply focus on Saturday’s game at Michigan (7-3, 5-1).

Ferentz: Ex-UI official no longer worked with team

Sports

November 13th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz says an athletics department official who resigned after being accused of sexually harassing athletes had stopped working with his players. Ferentz told reporters on Tuesday that Peter Gray worked with the football team in the past, “but it’s been awhile. A significant while.” He did not elaborate on when Gray stopped counseling his players or why that came about. Gray resigned last week after a decade at the athletics department, where he was in charge of monitoring the academic progression of all student-athletes.

An internal report released to the Iowa City Press-Citizen found that Gray violated the university’s sexual harassment policy through improper behavior that included rubbing, massaging and hugging students. UI President Sally Mason said Tuesday she’s launched a review of the matter.

Chiefs place DE Dorsey on injured reserve

Sports

November 13th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have placed defensive end Glenn Dorsey on injured reserve with a calf injury and added defensive back Neiko Thorpe to the 53-man roster. Dorsey played in just four games this season. He injured his left calf in practice in September and missed four games, then injured his right calf during a 31-13 loss to the Chargers on Nov. 1. The former first-round draft pick finishes the season with seven tackles and no sacks.

Thorpe made the Chiefs this summer after signing with the club as an undrafted rookie free agent. He played on special teams during a 9-6 loss to the Ravens last month, and was on the practice squad when he was promoted before Kansas City faced the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night.

Roethlisberger hurt, Steelers survive Chiefs 16-13

Sports

November 13th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers escaped with a victory. The health of their franchise quarterback is another matter entirely. The Steelers edged the woeful Kansas City Chiefs 16-13 in overtime on Monday night but lost Ben Roethlisberger for most of the second half — and perhaps a lot longer — with a right shoulder injury. Roethlisberger left the game early in the third quarter after getting slammed to the turf by Kansas City linebackers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston and did not return.

The Steelers (6-3) won their fourth straight anyway. Shaun Suisham kicked a 23-yard field goal 51 seconds into the extra period, one play after Lawrence Timmons intercepted Kansas City’s Matt Cassel and returned to the 5. Jamaal Charles ran for 100 yards and a score for the Chiefs (1-8), who have lost six straight.

Iowa State blasts Alabama A&M 98-40

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Tyrus McGee led five Cyclones in double figures with 18 points and Iowa State blasted overmatched Alabama A&M 98-40 on Monday night. Freshman Georges Niang had 17 points and Melvin Ejim added 16 for the Cyclones (2-0), who opened the game on a 35-10 run and recorded their sixth-largest margin of victory in school history. Iowa State held Alabama A&M (1-1) to just 14 first-half points in building a 27-point lead. The Cyclones led by as many as 58 points and won their ninth straight at home dating back to last season. Jeremy Crutcher had 10 for the Bulldogs, but he was their only player in double figures.

Iowa defeats Central Michigan 73-61

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Devyn Marble scored 18 points and Mike Gesell added 15 as Iowa beat Central Michigan 73-61 on Monday night. Aaron White had 14 points and nine rebounds for the Hawkeyes (2-0), who couldn’t pull away against the inexperienced Chippewas until a 14-3 run midway through the second half. Gesell powered the key stretch for the Hawkeyes, hitting two 3-pointers and assisting on another.

Kyle Randall scored 17 points for Central Michigan (0-1). The Chippewas cut the lead to seven points with 4 ½ minutes left, but got no closer. First-year Central Michigan coach Keno Davis, the son of former Hawkeye coach Tom Davis, was an undergraduate assistant for his father at Iowa from 1991-95.

Michigan defense looks to bounce back vs Iowa

Sports

November 12th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — All season, Michigan has been able to count on its defense, even if the offense has struggled for consistency. After Saturday’s 38-31 overtime win over Northwestern, though, the 23rd-ranked Wolverines can’t even be sure about that. The Wildcats put up 431 yards against Michigan, and should have won the game in regulation if not for a bad punt and a spectacular pass from Devin Gardner to Roy Roundtree. Michigan will be facing an entirely different kind of attack Saturday in Iowa’s pro-style power-running system.
