Cyclones faced with quarterback controversy after 0-2 start

Sports

September 13th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — It was apparent after Iowa State’s opener that the Cyclones will struggle to run the ball this season. The Cyclones can’t seem to throw it much either, an issue that has plunged the program into a quarterback controversy just two games into coach Matt Campbell’s first season.

Quarterback Joel Lanning’s starting job may be in jeopardy after he gave way to sophomore Jacob Park in last week’s 42-3 loss to No. 13 Iowa. Iowa State is 127th out of 128 FBS teams with just 11.5 points per game, and visits TCU (1-1) on Saturday as a 23.5-point underdog hoping to avoid its first 0-3 start since 1997.

Chiefs’ season opener shows best, worst of what they can be

Sports

September 13th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs looked as if they were two entirely different teams in their season opener. The first three quarters, they looked like a team that might not win another game, blowing assignments and getting dominated at the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. The final quarter, they looked as if they might never lose.

Ultimately, the Chiefs’ 33-27 overtime win over the San Diego Chargers was a microcosm of last season, when they started off 1-5 before rattling off 11 straight wins into the playoffs.

The Chiefs may have plenty to learn from their ugly start Sunday, but they at least can go to school with a 1-0 record. And ultimately, their ability to rally in the fourth quarter showed just how potent they can be once things start clicking. Coach Andy Reid says ultimately it’s just one of 16 games even though the first game can be “overrated a little bit.”

Hendricks loses no-hit bid in 9th, Cubs beat Cardinals 4-1

Sports

September 13th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Kyle Hendricks took a no-hitter into the ninth inning before giving up Jeremy Hazelbaker’s leadoff home run, and the Chicago Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-1 Monday night to close in on the NL Central crown. Hazelbaker drove an 0-2 pitch into the right-field stands for his 12th homer this season. Hendricks, the major league ERA leader, was relieved by Aroldis Chapman.

“Just left that one up right there. What are you going to do?” Hendricks said. Ben Zobrist and Dexter Fowler homered for the Cubs, who lowered their magic number to three for clinching the division crown. They lead the second-place Cardinals by 17 games.

Soon after Hazelbaker’s shot cleared the fence, teammates went to the mound to talk to Hendricks — leading to an argument between Cubs manager Joe Maddon and plate umpire Joe West. Maddon was ejected, and Chapman came in.

Surge in ER visits for injuries, concussions from soccer

Sports

September 12th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) – A new study says that soccer injuries are sending soaring numbers of U.S. kids to emergency rooms. Many cases are kids with concussions needing urgent medical care. The findings are based on 25 years of data. The research was conducted at the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio.

The study says that in 1990, the number of concussions or head injuries treated in emergency rooms was 2 per 10,000 players in 1990. In 2013, the rate jumped to almost 30 per 10,000 people.

Researchers and sports medicine experts believe the growing number of cases reflect not only soccer’s growing popularity, but also a greater awareness about concussions and their potential risks.
