UNI’s Sinkfield helps draft stock with fast 40s

Sports

March 6th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Former Northern Iowa wide receiver Terrell Sinkfield was not invited to the NFL scouting combine. He’s doing his best to make himself attractive for the upcoming draft, however. Sinkfield was invited to Minnesota’s pro prospect workouts on Monday, with several other prospects from the region. He said he was told his fastest 40-yard dash was an astounding 4.19 seconds. His other times were 4.27 and 4.44, when he tripped during the run.

Times can vary from source to source, and Vikings director of college scouting Scott Studwell told the St. Paul Pioneer Press he didn’t clock Sinkfield with any sub-4.3 times. But Studwell said he thought Sinkfield “tested well.” Even Sinkfield’s cumulative time of 4.33 seconds would give him elite speed. The 6-foot-1 Sinkfield went to Hopkins High School, a Minneapolis suburb.

Owner seeks to unload football team via Craigslist

March 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — A co-owner of the Cedar Rapids (Iowa) Titans football team is selling his stake through Craigslist. The Titans announced earlier this week that owner Mike Polaski is trying to sell his 20 percent stake in the two-year-old Indoor Football League team. Polaski writes on Craigslist that a downturn in his business as a restaurant owner is the reason and he’s asking for $80,000.

The team’s general manager and co-owner, Chris Kokalis, says Polaski was influential in bringing the team to Cedar Rapids. He says Polaski’s decision to sell has no impact on the Titans’ daily operations. The Titans (3-0) were in first place in IFL’s United Conference and face the Wyoming Cavalry on Friday.

33 governors ask IOC to rethink cut to wrestling

Sports

March 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad is hoping support from dozens of governors will help a campaign to keep wrestling in the Olympics. Branstad sent a letter Tuesday co-signed by 33 governors to International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge. It urges that the committee reconsider its decision to remove wrestling in 2020.

Branstad says in the letter the Olympics should respect key traditions. Wrestling was featured in the first modern Olympics in Athens in 1896. He also says the committee should be more transparent about how it votes when cutting sports from the program.

The IOC’s decision earlier this year to remove wrestling has drawn criticism. More than 23,000 people have signed an online petition supporting Branstad’s campaign to save the sport, which is beloved in Iowa.
