December 5th, 2012 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State linebackers A.J. Klein and Jake Knott were named to the first teams of the All-Big 12 Associated Press squad and the league’s coaches team that were released Wednesday. Cyclone defensive tackle Jake McDonough earned a first-team spot in the defensive line on the coaches team. Iowa State strong safety Durrell Givens was a second-team choice on both polls. Iowa State punter Kirby Van Der Kamp was a second-team choice by the conference’s coaches.

Klein was a unanimous selection on the AP first-team. The senior leads Iowa State with 98 tackles this season. He enters the Dec. 31 Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tenn. with 342 career tackles and 19 tackles for loss. His four career interception returns for touchdowns equal the NCAA record for linebackers. Klein was a first-team selection by the Big 12 coaches and second-team choice by the conference’s coaches last season. The 2011 Big 12 co-Defensive Player of the Year by the league’s coaches earned honorable mention honors for that award this season. Klein was an honorable mention choice on the AP team in 2010.

Knott made both first teams despite missing the final four games of the season after career-ending shoulder surgery. Playing despite the injury, Knott made a huge impact in his final collegiate game against Baylor. The Waukee native had 11 tackles, broke up a pass and forced his 10th career fumble at the goal line in a 35-21 Iowa State victory. He finished his career with 347 tackles, 18 for loss, while breaking up 15 passes and making eight interceptions. Knott was a first-team honoree on the AP team last season. He was selected for second-team honors as a sophomore by AP and on the coaches.

Urbandale native Jake McDonough was a first-team selection by the Big 12 coaches after making 31 tackles, a pair of sacks and breaking up three passes. He heads into the Liberty Bowl with 84 career tackles, 13 tackles for loss and five sacks. He earned honorable mention honors on the AP team. McDonough earned honorable mention from the league’s coaches for defensive lineman of the year.

Durrell Givens, who leads the nation in take-aways per game, was honored on both second teams after leading the nation with six fumble recoveries. He also has three interceptions this season.

Iowa State punter Kirby Van Der Kamp was a second-team choice by the Big 12 coaches. The West Des Moines product has averaged 41.6 yards per punt this season. He has dropped 28 punts inside the opponent 20-yard line with only two touchbacks. The junior can kick the long ball when needed with 10 punts of 50 or more yards in 2012. He earned honorable mention honors for Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Year from the conference’s coaches. Van Der Kamp was a second-team all-Big 12 selection as a freshman on the 2010 AP team while earning honorable mention honors from the league’s coaches that year.

Cyclones earning 2012 honorable mention honors from the league’s coaches were offensive lineman Carter Bykowski, defensive end Roosevelt Maggitt, cornerback Jeremy Reeves and free safety Jacques Washington.Bykowksi, center Tom Farniok and tight end Ernst Brun earned honorable mention on the AP team from the Big 12 media.

Iowa State, Mediacom to team up for cable channel


December 5th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State says it is entering into a five-year partnership with Mediacom to distribute programming from Cyclones.tv across Iowa and bordering states. Cyclones athletic director Jamie Pollard says the agreement paves the way for a fully dedicated Iowa State sports channel on Mediacom’s cable television network. No date has been set for that channel’s launch.

Mediacom says it will televise roughly 75 Iowa State games a year, including a football game and 5-10 men’s basketball games. The programming will be produced by Cyclones.tv, Iowa State’s in-house broadcaster, and also include coaches’ shows and live media conferences.  It’s believed that Iowa State would join Texas and BYU as the only schools with a channel dedicated to their athletic teams

Financial terms of the agreement have yet to be disclosed.

AP Source: Memorial service planned for Belcher


December 5th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A person familiar with the arrangements says a memorial service for Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher is planned for Wednesday afternoon.  The team moved up its practice schedule Wednesday so players could attend a 2 p.m. memorial service for Belcher at the Landmark International Deliverance and Worship Center in Kansas City. The source who spoke to The Associated Press requested anonymity because the person wasn’t authorized to discuss the event.

The source said the memorial service is not open to the public. Other details of the service aren’t known.  Belcher shot Perkins at their home Saturday morning before driving to Arrowhead Stadium, where he committed suicide in the practice facility’s parking lot.
