Former Iowa star Roy Marble dies after battling cancer at 48


September 11th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

Former Iowa basketball star Roy Marble, the school’s all-time leading scorer, has died. Iowa spokesman Matt Weitzel confirmed Marble’s death to The Associated Press on Friday. Marble, who had battled cancer in recent years, was 48. Marble played for the Hawkeyes from 1986-89, scoring 2,116 points. He led Iowa to the NCAA Tournament four times, including an Elite Eight appearance in 1987.

Marble was drafted 23rd overall by the Atlanta Hawks in 1989 but played just 29 games in the NBA. Marble’s son, Roy Devyn Marble, earned first-team All-Big Ten honors in 2014. He played for the Orlando Magic last season. Marble is the second high-profile Iowa athlete to die this week. Former football star Tyler Sash, 27, was found dead in his home in Oskaloosa, Iowa on Tuesday.

Rabbit season is open

Ag/Outdoor, News, Sports

September 11th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

Rabbit season got underway in Iowa this month. Iowa Department of Natural Resources wildlife biologist, Todd Bogenschutz says hunters shouldn’t have any trouble finding targets. “On our roadside surveys they’re actually a little bit down from last year, not much, basically unchanged,” Bogenschutz says. “But our rabbit numbers are 20 percent above the long-term average right now — so we’ve got plenty of bunnies in Iowa.”

While the population is doing well, he says fewer hunters are looking to hunt rabbits.
He says the number of hunters has been trending down and he is not sure if that is following the pattern of more people moving from rural to urban settings. “There’s just a lot more opportunity for other species right now, 30 years ago we didn’t have a turkey season or deer season, or giant Canada geese,” Bogenschutz says. He says rabbits are a good way to get a young person started in hunting.

“For beginning hunters, there’s nothing easier than cottontails and squirrels. All you need is a 22, and you don’t need any camo, you just need a place to go and sit in the woods,” Bogenschutz says. Rabbit season runs through February 28th, with a daily bag limit of 10 rabbits and a possession limit of 20. Shooting hours are sunrise to sunset.

Hunters looking for places to go rabbit or squirrel hunting should use Iowa’s online hunting atlas at www.iowadnr.gov/hunting.

Frazier and Phillips HR, Reds hand Cards 4th loss in 5 games


September 11th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

CINCINNATI (AP) — Todd Frazier and Brandon Phillips both homered and drove in three runs as the last-place Cincinnati Reds sent the NL Central-leading St. Louis Cardinals to their most-lopsided loss of the season, 11-0 Thursday night. The Cardinals opened their longest road trip of the season — 11 days, 10 games — with their fourth loss in five games.

Reds star Joey Votto doubled and singled, driving in a run and scoring one, a day after his tantrum at home plate following an ejection. Jaime Garcia (8-5) lasted a season-low 4 1-3 innings and gave up six runs. He had been 5-0 in seven starts since losing to the Reds on July 28.

John Lamb (1-3), one of three left-handers acquired from Kansas City for Johnny Cueto in late July, shook off control problems for his first major league win. He walked six, struck out six and gave up three hits in five innings.


(Update) Iowa to honor former star Tyler Sash during Iowa St game


September 10th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa will honor former star safety Tyler Sash by switching out one of its “Tigerhawk” decals for Sash’s No. 9 for Saturday’s game at Iowa State. The 27-year-old Sash was found dead Tuesday in his Oskaloosa, Iowa, home, about 3 1/2 years after he won a Super Bowl during his rookie season with the New York Giants.

Foul play isn’t suspected. The Iowa State Medical Examiner’s office said an autopsy conducted Wednesday revealed “no acute trauma” or evidence that he was killed by external force. Sash starred for the Hawkeyes from 2007-10. As a junior in 2009, Sash picked off three Iowa State passes in a 35-3 win in Ames.

A memorial service is set for Friday at the Oskaloosa Community Stadium at the Lacey Complex in Oskaloosa. A private family burial will follow. Bates Funeral Chapel in Oskaloosa is handling arrangements.

AG: U. Iowa track email should have been marked confidential

News, Sports

September 10th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – A mistake by state defense lawyers enabled a plaintiff’s attorneys to release an email suggesting the University of Iowa athletics department discriminated against their client and other male candidates during a coaching search.
A spokesman for the Iowa Attorney General’s Office said it inadvertently failed to mark as confidential the email and thousands of other university documents provided to Michael Scott’s attorneys.

Scott is suing the university for gender bias, contending he was passed over for a job opening on the track and field staff repeatedly because he’s a man. His claims were bolstered last week when his attorneys exclusively gave The Associated Press a copy of the 2013 e-mail in which the head coach told assistants there was a “mandate from the administration to hire a female.”

OSKALOOSA, Iowa (AP) – Services have been scheduled for Tyler Sash, the former New York Giants and Iowa safety who died suddenly at age 27. Sash’s body was found Tuesday in his Oskaloosa, Iowa, home, about 3 1/2 years after he won a Super Bowl during his rookie season with the Giants. The cause and manner of his death are being investigated.

The University of Iowa says visitation will be held Thursday at Fellowship Bible Church in Oskaloosa. A memorial service is set for Friday at the Oskaloosa Community Stadium at the Lacey Complex in Oskaloosa. A private family burial will follow.
