Iowa's Tyler Cook out 3 weeks with broken finger | The Gazette

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Iowa men’s basketball can add bad luck to its early season ups and downs.

The Hawkeyes will be without their starting center and marquee freshman Tyler Cook for approximately three weeks after the St. Louis native fractured his right index finger, requiring surgery Tuesday in Iowa City. Cook injured the finger during practice for the Emerald Coast Classic in Destin, Fla. on Thanksgiving Day, but was able to play in both the Virigina and Memphis games with what they thought was just a jammed finger.

"The guy had 17 and 7 against Memphis with a broken finger. That’s a pretty tough kid,” McCaffery said after Iowa's 92-78 loss to Notre Dame on Tuesday. “It’s like anything else. We’re all sick for him. We want him here, he wants to be here, but it’s an opportunity for somebody else. Cordell (Pemsl) stepped up and made the most of it.”


Washington Huskies in College Football Playoff at least for now

Buoyed by its convincing win over Washington State in the Apple Cup, Washington reappeared in the top four this week of the College Football Playoff selection committee's rankings.

The Huskies, though, might not want to get too comfortable there. Not yet, anyway.

The Big Ten is still positioned to potentially get two teams into the playoff, which could be bad news for Washington.

While Iowa’s Desmond King expected a repeat performance in the secondary, Jaleel Johnson grew into the first-team all-Big Ten defensive lineman he was recognized as Tuesday.

“I’ve done what I can to play my best ball this year,’’ the senior tackle said last week. “I’ve tried to bring my best every day to practice, to every game. That’s been my objective all season, to be the best player I can be. To be recognized would mean a lot to me.’’

The Big Ten honored its top defenders and specialists on Tuesday, announcing all-conference selections in those areas. Offensive players will receive recognition today.

IOWA CITY — As you continue to fold the Hawkeyes’ 2016 season and prepare to pack it away, there are certain things you stop and dwell on for a minute, just as there are things that you will hang on to long into the winter.

On one end of the spectrum, you have the final drive of the North Dakota State game. The Hawkeyes went into the drive needing to run 3:41 off the clock in order to hang on to a 21-20 victory.

Movie Review: Dr. Strange

Mike Thayer 2016 (2)By Mike Thayer

So my boys and I went to see Dr. Strange over the Thanksgiving holiday.

If you're into the Marvel movies, it's a must see.  If you're not into Marvel movies so much, it's still a good time.

It's a good origin story and actor Benedict Cumberbatch was the perfect choice to play Dr. Strange.  There is dazzling imagery throughout the film with plenty of comic relief one-liners in the script. 

It's not the best Marvel movie, but it is good.

I give Dr. Strange 3 out of 5 stars.
