Unbeaten Iowa: Desmond King, C.J. Beathard and Iowa won’t lose

IOWA CITY, Iowa—”It’s a circus,” Desmond King says about his campus these days. To explain how much of a circus it is, one of the stars of undefeated Iowa refers a visitor to his Media Uses and Effects discussion group. The junior cornerback says he makes it a habit to get to this class early: It is the best way to avoid people asking for his autograph. The player tied for the FBS lead with eight interceptions can settle in and raise his hand and maybe ask the teacher a question, to dissuade anyone from approaching him. If King gets caught up with everyone else arriving, that’s when the attention hits.

And forget about coming in last.

“All eyes are on you,” King says. “That’s worse.”

Thursday Week 11 Selections

If you need to know who to take for a Thursday Night contest – here are some considerations:

  • Allen Hurns – He has scored a TD in seven straight contests, which is the longest active streak in the NFL, look for this to continue.
  • Allen Robinson – While he isn’t scoring all the TD’s for this team, he leads them in targets and receptions for the season with an average of 9 targets and 6 catches per game.
  • Blake Bortles – Tennessee is one of the top ranked pass defenses in the league but on Thursday nights, the home team has prevailed and look, the Jags are in the division hunt right now, look for a solid 20 point performance as Bortles is ranked #7 in fantasy points per game for QB’s this season
  • Dexter McCluster – There really isn’t anyone on Tennessee that you would like, Mariota proved he can only light up the Bucs and Saints this season and the Jags defense is underrated. That said, McCluster has the speed to breakout this game with 40 yards rushing, 47 yards receiving and 1 TD.  Not bad for a $3,300 salary on DraftKings but this is an extreme sleeper to which I wouldn’t consider if you are going to play all games for this upcoming week.

#NHL News: Player News and Updates for 11/17/15

AltX.Logo.white

The NHL is back with a fairly busy schedule this evening. We’ve got eight matchups to look forward to, but in the meantime let’s visit some of the key players and stats in the news right now.

Kyle Okposo, RW, NY Islanders: The Islanders have been on a roll lately, and they put up a nice effort at Barclays Center last night against the Coyotes. Okposo had three assists in the 5-2 win, while John Tavares posted a goal and an assist in a solid line for him as well. Jaroslav Halak made 31 saves in net.
The Islanders are now 10-6-3 on the year and have won three of their past four outings. They’d scored just six goals in their previous four home games before this……

#NBA News: Player News and Updates for 11/17/15

AltX.Logo.white

We’ve got a pretty active NBA schedule in store for us tonight, with seven matchups on the slate. While we’re settling in and waiting on those, let’s check out some of the notable stats and players out there in our daily wrap-up.

Mavericks-Sixers: Dallas got off to a nice 28-15 start in the first quarter against the Sixers last night, and really never looked back. Things got close during the fourth quarter of the 92-86 victory, but Dirk Nowitzki scored seven of his 21 points during a great Mavericks run to help close the game out.
Jahlil Okafor posted 19 points and 11 rebounds, but Philly still dropped their 11th game to start the season and their 21st straight dating back to last year…….

6 Things To Know: Tuesday Morning Quarterback

name of site - hunter thompson style

TexansBengals

1. Low Watt-age:

You know for a guy who wants to be seen chopping wood, working hard, doing things the right way, etc…He sure mugs for the camera when the lights turn on.  Maybe Dalton sounds a bit like a whiner when he brings up “think of the children, JJ”.  But maybe Dalton is right.  JJ Watt misses the spotlight and so he rehearsed this line over and over, just waiting for the cameras to turn on so he could say:  We wanted the Red Rifle to be a BB gun.  Dalton is correct with his response – JJ who wants to be a good guy and wants to be a hero for many should consider that the “look-at-me”, “showboating” antics is exactly what he himself rails against.   But my issue is not so much the trash-talk, it’s lame trash talk – more like something Drake would say.  That’s just my opinion, I could be wrong.  Andrew Garda discusses last night’s Monday Night Football Game, along with his 3 takeaways.

2. United Stats of America – #MNF

Bengals held out of the end zone in first loss of the season

The Bengals did not score a touchdown as they suffered their first defeat of the season, a 10-6 loss to the Texans on Monday night. Cincinnati is the first team since 1934 to fail to score a touchdown in a game in which it entered unbeaten and untied with at least eight wins on the season. On November 25, 1934, the 10-0 Lions lost to the Packers, 3-0. Detroit went on to lose its remaining two games that season, both to the Bears.

  • T.J. Yates replaced Texans starting quarterback Brian Hoyer in the third quarter of Monday’s game. Yates promptly led Houston on a fourth-quarter game-winning drive, tossing a 22-yard TD pass to DeAndre Hopkins to give the Texans a 10-6 lead. He is the third quarterback to replace the starter and lead a game-winning drive in the fourth quarteraltx-logo-white_SMALL or overtime this season, and the previous two each did so in Week 9 (Landry Jones for the
    Steelers and the Vikings’ Shaun Hill).
  • The Texans have not allowed a touchdown in each of their last 10 quarters (their last TD allowed was a Lamar Miller 85-yard run in the second quarter of a loss to the Dolphins in Week 7). That’s the longest such streak in the NFL this season; the Rams and Seahawks are next on the list, each with nine-quarter stretches. It’s the second longest streak of this type in Texans’ history; they did not allow a touchdown in each of 13 consecutive quarters late in the 2004 season.

+ Success for road teams in Week 10

  • Road teams went 11-3 (.786) in Week 10, with the Browns, Cowboys, and Saints the only visiting teams to lose. That’s the second highest winning percentage for road teams in one week over the last 30 years; in Week 11 of the 2001 season, they went 12-3 (.800).

3. Last One Out of the Circus Turns Out the Lights:

Rob just couldn’t eat his way out of it.  Is that Fat Shaming?  Did I just pull a JJ Watt?  That’s not fair – ok, I’m sorry – a man lost his job and his family will probably move again, maybe to Buffalo to be re-united with his brother.  Maybe?  Doubt it.  What we saw the last few years was endless closeups of Rob Ryan and his defenses being the absolute worst – except that first year, that was good.  So now it’s finally official after I tweeted it early yesterday and the biggest question for Saints fans is:  Is it the coach or the lack of talent?  Either way the internet had some fun with it, according to uproxx.

4. Check Your Privilege Uncle Bern

The Great White Hope of Socialism in America, Bernie Sanders once voted to cancel your freedom and was a stalwart against any vice that has to do with the internet and making money while watching sports.  Load up the weird canon and get ready to shoot a load of buck-wildness all over the place when you read the shocking expose by Luke Kerr-Dineen.  A Vote for Uncle Bern could alter how you watch football on Sundays.

5. Heidi-Heidi-Hi

This Day in Sports History

On November 17, 1968, the Oakland Raiders score two touchdowns in nine seconds to beat the New York Jets–and no one sees it, because they’re watching the movie Heidi instead. With just 65 seconds left to play, NBC switched off the game in favor of its previously scheduled programming, a made-for-TV version of the children’s story about a young girl and her grandfather in the Alps. Viewers were outraged, and they complained so vociferously that network execs learned a lesson they’ll never forget: “Whatever you do,” one said, “you better not leave an NFL football game.”  Watch the recap of the game here from the NFL Network.
