IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – The University of Iowa says football and men’s basketball play-by-play announcer Gary Dolphin has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. The school says Wednesday that Dolphin isn’t expected to miss any games and is optimistic for a full recovery. The 60-year-old Dolphin is entering his 15th season as the play-by-play man for the Hawkeyes. Dolphin says his doctors have told him they’ve caught his cancer in its early stages and plan to attack it with radiation. Iowa opens its season on Sept. 3 at home against Tennessee Tech.

August 10th, 2011 by Jim Field

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Casey McGehee’s double snapped a 10th-inning tie and the Milwaukee Brewers won for the 12th time in 13 games, dealing another blow to their closest pursuers in the NL Central with a 5-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night.  The Brewers’ 3-4-5 hitters had been 0 for 12 before extra innings when Prince Fielder singled to put runners at the corners ahead of McGehee’s double off Octavio Dotel (0-1). Yuniesky Betancourt added a sacrifice fly and John Axford finished for his 30th straight save and 33rd in 35 chances overall.  David Freese had an RBI single in his first game back from a concussion sustained from a beanball last Thursday for the Cardinals, who fell four games back after the opener of a three-game series.

     ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) – Tamba Hali thanked Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt and his family, then talked about getting back to work.  Kansas City’s star linebacker spoke with reporters Tuesday for the first time since signing a five-year, $60-million contract last week. The Chiefs placed the franchise tag on Hali during the
offseason, but there was no lengthy holdout from a player coming off of a career year in which he had 14 1/2 sacks.  Hali’s deal made him the second-highest paid outside linebacker in the league behind Dallas’ DeMarcus Ware. The contract included $35 million guaranteed.

Iowa basketball coach Fran McCaffery snagged a major victory Monday when South Sioux City Nebraska star Mike Gesell verbally committed to the Hawkeyes.  Gesell, a six-foot-one point guard, had narrowed his choices to Iowa, Nebraska and Stanford.  He also had offers from Iowa State, Creighton, Northern Iowa, Drake, Utah and Harvard.  The all-stater has led his prep team to the last two Nebraska Class B state titles.  As a junior last season, Gesell averaged 25.2 points, 8.2 assists and six rebounds per game.  Most of the major recruiting services list him as a top 100 recruit.

Chiefs Tight End Moeaki Comes Off PUP List

Sports

August 9th, 2011 by Jim Field

     ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) – Tight end Tony Moeaki has been removed from the Kansas City Chiefs’ physically unable to perform list and participated in their morning walkthrough Monday.  The second-year player from Iowa ran some routes for the first time since he was placed on the PUP list at the beginning of training camp. The Chiefs have not said what was wrong with Moeaki, but he spent more than a week watching from the sidelines at Missouri Western State University.  Moeaki caught 47 passes for 556 yards and three touchdowns his rookie season.  Wide receiver Jonathan Baldwin, the Chiefs’ first-round draft pick, did some light running Monday. He had not practiced since Thursday’s walkthrough.  Defensive end Glenn Dorsey sat out for the third straight day since he was carted off the practice field last Thursday with an
undisclosed injury.

Ex-Ravens McClain, Gregg Welcomed to Kansas City

     ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) – Todd Haley remembers watching Kelly Gregg stuff the Kansas City Chiefs’ vaunted rush attack. He has vivid memories of punishing fullback Le’Ron McClain clearing the way for Ray Rice.  So when both players became available during free agency, the Kansas City head coach was on board with signing them. And now,
just a few short months after helping the Baltimore Ravens eliminate the Chiefs from the playoffs, the veteran duo is being counted on to help them get back.  McClain, a two-time Pro Bowl fullback, says he’s coming in to do anything he can to help the team win.  That’s precisely the attitude that Haley expects.

Legendary Coach Paterno Injured

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) – Penn State says coach Joe Paterno is undergoing medical tests on his right arm and hip at a hospital after a player ran into him during practice on Sunday. The school announced yesterday that Paterno walked away from the collision with a receiver who was running a route. The 84-year-old says he’s “fine” and expects to be back on the practice field “soon.”  Dr. Wayne Sebastianelli, Penn State director of athletic medicine, said in a statement that it doesn’t appear surgery will be required. The school said Paterno could be released in the next 24 hours.  A person familiar with the team says doctors are evaluating Paterno’s shoulder and pelvis but there is no firm diagnosis on the extent of the injuries.  Paterno is entering his 46th season as Penn State’s head coach and is the winningest coach in the history of major college football with 401 victories.
