Sports

November 16th, 2012 by Jim Field

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan defensive tackle Will Campbell wishes he was wrapping up a fourth season with coach Brady Hoke.

Two years, though, have been better than none for Campbell.

He came to campus during the Rich Rodriguez era and is finishing up under Hoke. Campbell and the other fourth-year players were one game under .500 during their first two seasons and have a combined 18-5 record this year and last.

The 23rd-ranked Wolverines (7-3, 5-1 Big Ten) hope to 23 seniors out with a win against Iowa (4-6, 2-4) in their home finale Saturday.

After losing four straight, Iowa needs to beat Michigan and then Nebraska to qualify for a bowl.

U. of Iowa Leader Issues Apology in Athletics Case

Sports

November 16th, 2012 by Jim Field

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — University of Iowa President Sally Mason is apologizing for the school’s failure to protect athletes and employees in its handling of a former athletics department official accused of sexual harassment.

Mason said in a statement Friday that the university will make changes to avoid a repeat of what she called an “isolated breakdown” in the case of Peter Gray, who resigned last week after working as associate director of athletics student services since 2002.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen published an internal report that accused Gray of violating the school’s sexual harassment policy through improper touching that included shoulder massages, hugging and rubbing. The report says the behavior dated back to Gray’s earlier employment at Iowa in the 1990s and continued despite complaints from colleagues, coaches and at least one athlete.

Google is expecting to make 2nd of 2 big Iowa announcements this afternoon

News

November 16th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Another major economic development announcement from Google is expected this (Friday) afternoon, the second one in Iowa this week. The internet search engine giant is powered by eight data centers, including one in Council Bluffs. Google’s already invested 600-million dollars in that facility and the new announcement is expected to be detailing an expansion of the center in southwest Iowa.

Earlier this week, Google announced it will pump 75-million dollars into a wind farm in central Iowa near the town of Rippey. Given its acres of computer servers, the company uses a significant amount of power, so officials want to invest in renewable forms of energy that cause less pollution.

Today’s announcement is expected at 3:30 PM.
