Iowa Creates New Express Lanes at Kinnick Stadium

Sports

August 31st, 2011 by Jim Field

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa fans who travel light – really light – will be able to get into Kinnick Stadium faster at football games this season.  Fans who bring nothing to the game but their tickets will be able to go through four new express lanes at Gates C, G, I and M.  All other fans must enter at regular gates where their purses will be checked for prohibited items like alcohol and firearms.  Only small purses, fanny packs, binocular cases, blankets and seat cushions will be allowed into the stadium.  Iowa is expecting a sellout of about 70,000 fans for Saturday’s game at 11 a.m. against Tennessee Tech.

Texas A&M Plans to Leave Big 12 by July 2012

Sports

August 31st, 2011 by Jim Field

HOUSTON (AP) – Texas A&M has told the Big 12 Conference it plans to leave the league by July 2012 if it is accepted by another conference.  The move, which had been  expected, may set off another round of conference realignment in college sports. The Aggies have made it clear they want to join the 12-member Southeastern Conference.
University President R. Bowen Loftin notified the Big 12 in a letter and said it departing the Big 12 “is in the best interest of Texas A&M.” He said he hopes the move can be amicable and presumably hopes to negotiate a reasonable exit fee.  Texas A&M had been in the Big 12 since its founding in 1996.  Loftin says the school wants greater visibility nationwide as well as “the necessary and stable financial resources” need to support athletics.

ISU Athletic Director Jamie Pollard Statement on Texas A&M:

“It is unfortunate that Texas A&M is moving forward with plans to depart the Big 12. They have been highly competitive in the conference and represented our league well on the national stage. Although our preference is for them to stay in the Big 12, we wish them well in the future and respect their decision. The Commissioner, Presidents and Directors of Athletics are poised to move quickly and aggressively in studying alternatives for the conference.”

Iowa’s Derby Moves Into Backup Role

Sports

August 31st, 2011 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says quarterback A.J. Derby will likely open the season as the backup to junior James Vandenberg. Derby, a 6-foot-4, 232-pound redshirt freshman from Iowa City, would get the nod over James Wienke as the reserve behind Vandenberg. Ferentz on Tuesday praised Derby for his size, quick feet and competitiveness. But it appears unlikely that the Hawkeyes will prepare special packages for Derby simply to get him on the field. Derby could see playing time as early as Saturday, though, when the Hawkeyes host FCS school Tennessee Tech. Iowa has won its last 10 openers by an average of 31.5 points, allowing backups like Derby to get experience.

Iowa :Looking For Breakout Season From WR Davis

Sports

August 31st, 2011 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa’s Marvin McNutt is one of the nation’s best receivers, a 6-foot-4 perfect fit for the Hawkeyes. McNutt might have trouble finding open space if Iowa can’t find anyone else dangerous enough to keep defenses honest. Junior wide receiver Keenan Davis is among the inexperienced players the Hawkeyes are leaning on after losing 12 starters from a year ago. Davis had just 11 catches in 2010 while playing behind McNutt and Derrell Johnson-Koulianos. He’ll get his first career start on Saturday when Iowa opens the season at home against Tennessee Tech. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says Davis has shown potential as a big-play receiver. He says the next step for Davis is to prove it on Saturdays.

Iowa to Honor Slain Navy SEAL – and Dog Might Help

Sports

August 30th, 2011 by Jim Field

     IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – The dog who touched hearts all over the world by lying next to the casket of a slain Navy SEAL might lead the Iowa Hawkeyes onto the field during a game this season.  The university said Tuesday it will honor Jon Tumilson and other veterans at one of two home games in November. The team says it will work with Tumilson’s family to determine what role his loyal dog, Hawkeye, might play.  Tumilson was one of 30 American soldiers killed in Afghanistan on Aug. 6 in a helicopter crash. Photos of his pet Labrador retriever lying near his casket during a funeral service went viral.  A former player suggested the dog lead the team before Saturday’s game against Tennessee Tech and fans embraced the idea.

Chiefs Put OT O’Callaghan on IR, Cut K Carter

Sports

August 30th, 2011 by Jim Field

     KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Kansas City Chiefs have placed offensive tackle Ryan O’Callaghan on injured reserve and released backup kicker Todd Carter to reach the 80-player roster limit before Tuesday’s deadline.  O’Callaghan had missed nearly all of training camp with an undisclosed injury. He was picked up off waivers before the 2009
season and started 12 games that year, but he was injured in training camp last season and Barry Richardson took over the starting job.  Carter was signed on Aug. 10 as a second kicker in camp, but he’s played sparingly in three preseason games and never challenged Ryan Succop for the starting job.  The Chiefs play Green Bay in their final preseason game Thursday night. They must cut to 53 players by Saturday.

Group to Discuss Replacements in Case Aggies Leave

Sports

August 30th, 2011 by Jim Field

     The Big 12 board of directors has formed a committee to discuss schools that could replace Texas A&M if the Aggies leave the league as expected.  Missouri Chancellor Brady Deaton, who serves as the board chairman, said Tuesday that the committee could also address the possibility of expanding the conference even if Texas A&M stays put.
     The Aggies are interested in joining the Southeastern Conference and they received a letter from Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe on Monday outlining the withdrawal procedure if they decide to leave.  Deaton says the Big 12 board has not received notification that the Aggies plan to leave.
