Aide: U. of Iowa president backs Coker suspension

Sports

December 21st, 2011 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — A spokesman for University of Iowa President Sally Mason says she supported the decision to suspend star running back Marcus Coker for the Dec. 30 Insight Bowl against Oklahoma. Spokesman Tom Moore said Wednesday Mason has been kept apprised of the situation involving Coker, whose suspension was announced Tuesday by the athletic department as a result of violating the student-athlete code of conduct for unspecified behavior. Ellie Herman, one of two faculty representatives to athletics, said she was briefed on the details but could not release them for privacy reasons. Herman says that, based on what she was told, she supported the suspension and the move wasn’t taken lightly. UI Police Chief Chuck Green says his department isn’t investigating Coker, who will not travel with the team to Tempe, Ariz.

Poppens Leads ISU Past UNI Women

Sports

December 21st, 2011 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa  – Iowa State had it going inside and outside and there wasn’t much Northern Iowa could do about it.  Chelsea Poppens scored 20 points and grabbed 14 rebounds as the Cyclones led the Panthers by 16 at halftime and pulled away in the second half for a 84-57 victory. Iowa State improves to 7-2 while Northern Iowa falls to 7-4.

Iowa State dominated on the boards, winning the rebound battle 48-20. Nikki Moody tallied 15 points, as the Cyclones outscored Northern Iowa 44-12 in the paint.

It became apparent early that Iowa State would have its way in the first half. The Cyclones pushed away from the Panthers with Poppens scoring in the lane four times in a four-minute span as Iowa State turned an 11-10 lead into a 25-13 advantage. Iowa State scored 15 second-chance points in the first half to Northern Iowa’s two points.  The Cyclones controlled the boards, outrebounding their intrastate foe, 25-10 in the first half.

Both teams shot the three well in the first half, with Iowa State hitting on 6-of-11 shots (.545 ) and UNI 5-10(.500). The difference was inside and the Cyclones led 46-30 at the break.

Iowa State will have a bit of Christmas break before playing host to New Hampshire on the first night of the Cyclone Challenge at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 29 in Hilton Coliseum.

Sports

December 21st, 2011 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa running back Marcus Coker has been suspended from playing in the Insight Bowl later this month after violating the university’s student-athlete code of conduct. The university announced Coker’s suspension on its athletic department website Tuesday. The announcement says the issue involves university policies but did not elaborate. Coker, who is a sophomore from Beltsville, Md., will not travel with the team to Tempe, Ariz., for the Dec. 30 bowl game against Oklahoma. Coker was the Hawkeyes’ starting running back this season and was named to the all-Big 10 second team.

Iowa DL coach Kaczenski leaves program

Sports

December 21st, 2011 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa defensive line coach Rick Kaczenski has left the program to pursue another coaching job. Hawkeyes coach Kirk Ferentz announced Kaczenski’s departure Tuesday. Kaczenski, who played offensive line at Notre Dame, has been coaching at Iowa since 2005. He became the defensive line coach in 2007 after two seasons as a graduate assistant. Iowa’s defensive line was among the nation’s best during Kaczenski’s tenure. The Hawkeyes featured players such as Mitch King, Adrian Clayborn, Christian Ballard and Karl Klug and finished in the top-10 nationally in scoring defense from 2008-10. Kaczenski is the second defensive coach Iowa has lost in the last few weeks. Seventy-year-old coordinator Norm Parker recently announced he’ll retire after the Dec. 30 Insight Bowl against Oklahoma.

Ferentz reaffirms commitment to Iowa

Sports

December 21st, 2011 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz has reaffirmed his commitment to the Hawkeyes, saying he fully intends to coach in Iowa City in 2012 and “well beyond.” Ferentz released a statement late Tuesday night in response to another round of speculation about his future. Ferentz’s deal with Iowa runs through the 2020 season and pays him just under $4 million a year. Ferentz says he wants to emphasize that he’s very happy with the Hawkeyes, adding that he’s got a great staff and student-athletes, and strong support from university president Sally Mason and athletic director Gary Barta. Ferentz has been the head coach at Iowa since 1999 and is the longest-tenured coach in the Big Ten. The Hawkeyes (7-5) will face No. 19 Oklahoma in the Insight Bowl on Dec. 30.
