Give Iowa’s band a hand for wave to children’s hospital

This season, the Iowa Hawkeyes have produced what is sure to become one of the best traditions in college football: the hospital wave.

A grassroots movement helped bring Iowa fans together by having them wave in unison to the children’s hospital adjacent to Kinnick Stadium at the end of the first quarter. On Saturday, during the Hawkeyes’ game against Illinois, the school’s marching band got involved in the new tradition too.

The band formed a hand, moving side-to-side, to wave at the children at University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital. Between the fans and the marching band, Iowa is giving new meaning to the wave tradition.

Carmona’s team was loaded — Josh Jackson (Kansas, Phoenix Suns), Kyle Kuzma (Utah, Los Angeles Lakers) and Jaylen Johnson (Louisville, Chicago Bulls) were on the team. Brian Bowen, a younger player from Arthur Hill High in Saginaw, and A.J. Turner, from De La Salle Collegiate High School in Warren, Michigan, who would go on to play at Boston College and then transfer to Northwestern, were also on the roster.

Dawkins renamed the team Dorian’s Pride in honor of his late brother and landed Adidas as a sponsor.

In an interview with ESPN, Carmona said that he coached the players and Dawkins worked as team director, helping raise money for uniforms and travel expenses. Dawkins set the team’s schedule, which mostly included tournaments in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. After about 18 months, however, Carmona said the team was running out of money. He took his players Cheap Jerseys Elite and left for Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap The Family, a more established AAU organization that was sponsored by Nike in Detroit.

Vote: Weigh in on Week 6 in the Big 12

We’re approaching the halfway point of the college football season, and thanks to Iowa State’s upset win over Oklahoma, the College Football Playoff picture is starting to get interesting. Conference play has shown whose quick starts were for real … and whose were not.

With that said, let’s take a look back at Week 6 and look ahead to Week 7 in the Big 12.

As the size of the arriving parties increased, eventually reaching today’s standard of 100 people (players and staff) and an 18-wheeler full of gear, the visitors were given space wherever it could be found. At some stadiums, that became a cave dug wherever there might be an empty space beneath the grandstand. At others, it meant looking offsite.

“I can remember having to hoof it to other buildings a lot,” Keyshawn Johnson remembered about his time at USC. At the time, Oregon State, Washington State and Washington housed their visitors outside their stadiums, in a physical education building basement, a P.E. classroom and a basketball arena, respectively. “I swore some guy sat in an office and drew up a map to make the worst possible path between the stadium and the locker room. ‘Hey, what gate does the drunkest fraternity use to get in? OK, cool, let’s make them jog through there!'”

The Coyotes took two penalties late in the period, which led to a Kings 5-on-3 advantage. Arizona killed off one of the power plays, but Los Angeles defenseman Drew Doughty blasted a shot past goaltender Louis Domingue to put the Kings up 1-0.

The box went silent for a few minutes after the goal, as Chayka and Sullivan — along with goaltending coach Jon Elkin, who sat on the far right side — tried to Wholesale Jerseys From China digest what Wholesale NBA Jerseys had just happened. Then Chayka and Sullivan started to chat and saw they were on the same page.

Wilton Speight likely out for season with 3 broken vertebrae

Michigan Wolverines senior quarterback Wilton Speight has three broken vertebrae in his back, a source confirmed to ESPN.

ESPN’s Chris Fowler first reported Speight’s injury at the top of ABC’s Saturday night broadcast of Michigan State’s 14-10 upset of Michigan in Ann Arbor. “Wilton Speight … he is out, probably for the season,” Fowler said. “He has three broken vertebrae, he told us.”

More often than not, that path leads through some sort of tunnel. And more often than not, that tunnel is actually a funnel. What starts as a hallway wide enough for teammates to enter four-wide is gradually condensed, growing smaller and smaller until it’s so tight the kicker might consider traveling sideways. An offensive lineman might consider therapy. At Arizona, visitors Nike NFL Jerseys descend into a hole that feels like a garbage chute, custom built for the fans above to deposit NHL Jerseys China whatever they have in their hands. Notre Dame’s just-unveiled path for opponents to find the playing field looks like a real-life M.C. Escher painting. Only, instead of surrealist’s preferred color black, this tunnel has been painted mustard brown.

“When we went to Washington State our locker room was a five- to seven-minute hike away,” recalled Mike Belotti, who spent 22 seasons at Oregon, from offensive coordinator to head coach to AD. “It wasn’t in the stadium. It was in a building across from the stadium. Sort of. You went down a long, skinny tunnel and that emptied out behind an old gym and then into a hallway. Halftime was only 15 minutes, so by the time you got [to the locker room], it was time to turn around and go back.”

The Bears have run out of excuses.

Never before has a team welcomed playing four of the next five games on the road, even with trips to Oakland and New England looming.

The NFL hates falling to other sports as much it hates “outdated” facilities that won’t be Super Bowl-worthy sometime soon. That’s why the league moved the Rams from St. Louis and is moving Cheap Jerseys Soccer the Raiders from Oakland.

For the Rams and Raiders, though, at least Los Angeles and Las Vegas offer some appeal compared to their current situations. The Chargers’ move was forced and poorly planned with the players least in mind.

Stop selling the silliness of Mike Glennon, NFL starting quarterback, and turn to rookie first-round pick Mitchell Trubisky, effective immediately.

At the beginning of the season, there was some reason to buy the idea of John Fox and Chicago’s offensive coaches wanting to go with Glennon. Beyond how much money they already had thrown away on the former Buccaneers backup, there was the old-school notion that Trubisky “had little starting experience” and Glennon gave them “the best chance to win” early.

Well, Glennon has had four starts, and the team is 1-3. After Sunday, the Bears will be two games behind in the NFC North, both to the Packers — who routed them 35-17 on Thursday night — and the Lions. Chicago now should know what the rest us of already did before Week 1 — it doesn’t have a team bound for the playoffs in 2017. If the Bears don’t, they should accept that Glennon isn’t the guy who’s Cheap Jerseys To Design going to get them there. Either way, it’s Trubisky time.

2018 NFL Draft Watch: Saquon Barkley continues to showcase his skills

Each week during this year’s college football regular season we will highlight some of the top draft-eligible performers from around the country.

Saquon Barkley continues to assert himself as not only the top running back in next year’s NFL Draft class, but the front-runner for the Heisman Trophy.

While the Penn State running back ran for just 56 yards on 20 carries Saturday against Indiana, the 5-11, 230-pound junior returned the opening kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown to set the tone for a 45-14 victory. Barkley, who has accounted for seven touchdowns this season, also caught four passes for 51 yards and even threw a 16-yard touchdown pass in the win.

No, nobody saw this Case Keenum renaissance coming (369 yards, three touchdowns against the Buccaneers). No one knows how long it lasts, either. It could end this week against a Lions team with a defense that handled Matt Ryan fairly well and gave Matthew Stafford a chance to win. Jim Caldwell no longer has to answer weekly questions about his job security, which can’t hurt.

Collins and I have this in common: We both rushed for more yards than Terrance West Cheap Jerseys MLB in Week 4: Collins had 82 yards, I had zero and West had minus-7. Collins has run hard over Cheap Jerseys Online Free Shipping the past two weeks, posting an identical nine carries for 82 yards both times out. It really feels like just a matter of time until he earns more early-game carries. He’s a speculative add for anyone looking to pad running back depth.
