January 7th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – The Big Ten has suspended Hawkeyes coach Fran McCaffery for one game and fined Iowa $10,000 for his outburst during Sunday’s loss at Wisconsin. McCaffery received back-to-back technical fouls and was ejected for arguing with officials midway through the second half. The Big Ten says in a release on Tuesday that McCaffery’s actions violated the league’s sportsmanship policy.

McCaffery will sit out Thursday’s home game against Northwestern. Assistant coach Kirk Speraw will take his place. McCaffery apologized for the second time in as many days Tuesday, saying he regrets his actions and accepts the league’s decision.  Iowa athletic director Gary Barta says that McCaffery has expressed his remorse for the incident and adds that the coach has his full support moving forward.

Cardinals claim OF Ortega from Rangers


January 7th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals added an outfield prospect to the 40-man roster, claiming 22-year-old Rafael Ortega on waivers from the Texas Rangers. The left-handed hitting Ortega, of Venezuela, was designed for assignment by Texas on Dec. 30. The Rangers had claimed him from the Rockies a month earlier.

Colorado signed Ortega as a non-drafted free agent in 2008 and he made his major league debut in September 2012, appearing in two games. Ortega batted .228 for Double-A Tulsa last year with one home run, 10 RBIs and nine steals in 13 attempts before a season-ending leg injury in late June.

The Cardinals have one spot remaining on the roster.

January 7th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

GRINNELL, Iowa (AP) — The small Iowa school that produced 138-point scorer Jack Taylor has set another NCAA record. Division Three Grinnell College player Patrick Maher broke the NCAA record with 37 assists Monday night in a 164-144 victory over College of Faith.

Maher snapped the record of 34 set by Grinnell assistant head coach David Arseneault back in 2007. Maher also had 19 points to help the Pioneers improve to 8-2. Taylor put Grinnell on the national map with 138 points against Faith Baptist Bible on November 20th, 2012. Taylor didn’t play Monday night because of a lower back injury.

Rhoads Hires Ayeni as ISU Running Backs Coach


January 6th, 2014 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa- Louis Ayeni, who has had a major impact on Toledo’s running game in his four years at the school, has been named an assistant coach for running backs at Iowa State, head coach Paul Rhoads announced today.

Ayeni spent the last three seasons as Associate Head Coach/Run Game Coordinator at Toledo producing outstanding results. The Rockets qualified for a bowl game in three of the last four seasons and finished among the top five rushing teams in the MAC all four years.

The Woodbury, Minn., native helped place a Toledo running back on an all-MAC team and mentored a 1,000-yard rusher in each of the last four seasons.

“We are very excited to have Lou join our staff,” Rhoads said. “He brings a tremendous amount of energy and passion to this position, both traits I see as essential to aid in the advancement of our football program. He is a dynamic and relentless recruiter which is also vital to our sustained success.”

The Rockets are coming off a 7-5 campaign in 2013 where they averaged 240.6 yards per game on the ground to rank second in the league and 14th nationally. Under Ayeni’s guidance, senior running back David Fluellen flourished, earning first-team All-MAC honors in 2012 and 2013 with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons. His 3,336 career rushing yards ranks fourth all-time in UT history.

Ayeni came to Toledo from Northwestern, where he served as a graduate assistant for two seasons, working primarily with the offense.

During his playing career at Northwestern (1999-2003), Ayeni played running back before switching to safety prior to his senior season. He served as team captain in 2003. He graduated in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in communications and a minor in sociology.

Despite being limited his senior year by injury, Ayeni earned respect as one of the most feared hitters in the Big Ten Conference. In four games his senior year, he totaled 22 tackles, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He added “Player of the Game” and “Big Playmaker of the Game” accolades against Kansas, Purdue and Wisconsin.

As an offensive performer early in his career, Ayeni helped lead the Wildcats to a Big Ten Championship in 2000. As a true freshman in 1999, Ayeni led the team in kickoff return average and yardage, was third on the team in special teams tackles and was the Wildcats’ second-leading rusher.

Ayeni played for Tony Dungy and the Indianapolis Colts as a safety in 2004-05 before joining the St. Louis Rams and Mike Martz in 2005-06 as a linebacker.
