Legendary Iowa Coach To Headline IWCC Wrestling Season Kick-Off


September 22nd, 2011 by Jim Field

COUNCIL BLUFFS, IOWA  –  Before taking the mat, Iowa Western Community College’s first-ever Reiver wrestling team will meet with its fans during a special fund-raising event Wednesday, October 26, at the Mid America Center. The Reivers and new head coach Josh Watts will welcome legendary Iowa Coach Dan Gable at their wrestling kickoff and dinner, to be held at the convention center on 1 Arena Way in Council Bluffs. Tickets for the event are $50 for adults and $25 for those 14 and under. Reservations by October 19 can be made by calling 712-325-3241. All funds raised from the dinner will be dedicated for IWCC’s wrestling program.

The name Dan Gable is synonymous with wrestling dominance in the state of Iowa. During his prep and college careers, Gable amassed an amazing 182-1 wrestling record. He was undefeated in 64 prep matches, and was 118-1 at Iowa State. His only defeat came in the NCAA finals his senior year. Gable was a three-time all-American and three-time Big Eight champion. He set NCAA records in winning and pin streaks.

As the University of Iowa’s all-time winningest wrestling coach from 1977 to 1997, Gable compiled a career record of 355-21-5, all at Iowa. He coached 152 All-Americans, 45 National Champions, 106 Big Ten Champions and 12 Olympians, including four gold, one silver and three bronze medalists. The Hawkeyes won 25 consecutive Big Ten championships, 21 under Gable as head coach and four while he was an assistant coach and administrator. He had a winning percentage of .932 and captured nine consecutive (1978-86) NCAA Championships. At the time that equaled the longest streak of national titles won by any school in any sport, and is also held by Yale golf (1905-13) and Southern Cal track (1935-43).

With the addition of the wrestling program, IWCC competes in 18 sports in Division I NJCAA. To learn more about IWCC athletics and the view the wrestling schedule, visit

Paul Rhoads Grateful Big 12 Working to Stabilize


September 22nd, 2011 by Jim Field

     AMES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads says he’s grateful that schools like Texas and Oklahoma appear to be working on staying in the Big 12.  Rhoads said Wednesday that he’s happy with the direction the beleaguered conference appears to be heading and what that means for his program.  Rhoads’s comments came one day after the Pac-12 squashed any hope of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas and Texas Tech joining the conference, which could have been a deadly blow to the Big 12.  Rhoads says the Big 12 is a “pretty good” football conference and a strong one overall.  Iowa State spokesman Steve Malchow told The Associated Press Wednesday that athletic director Jamie Pollard declined to comment on the Big 12 situation.

opponents include Colorado State next season, Kansas State in 2013 and Iowa State in 2014. All are road games for the Bison.

Chiefs Put RB Charles On IR, Promote WR Horne


September 21st, 2011 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Kansas City Chiefs have officially placed running back Jamaal Charles on season-ending injured reserve and promoted wide receiver Jeremy Horne from the practice squad. Charles tore the ACL in his left knee in the first quarter of Sunday’s 48-3 loss to the Detroit Lions. He is the third Chiefs player to sustain the injury in recent weeks. Tight end Tony Moeaki went down in their preseason finale and Eric Berry in a season-opening loss to Buffalo. Coach Todd Haley said Monday that he expected Charles to go on IR and the team made the move official Wednesday. The Chiefs also announced they signed offensive lineman Lucas Patterson to fill Horne’s place on the practice squad. Horne played in three games for Kansas City last season.

Iowa State Shatters Season Ticket Record


September 21st, 2011 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State has sold more season football tickets this season than any other year in the history of the institution.

Through Wednesday, the school had sold 37,446 season tickets and orders continue to come in. The previous record was 36,610 in 2007.

“It has been non-stop in the athletics ticket office,” Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard said. “The team’s great start has also ignited single-game and mini-pack sales this past week.”

This fall’s season ticket number is nearly 6,000 more than last year, a remarkable 18.3 percent increase. The Cyclones’ opening two home games drew the second (56,085 vs. Iowa) and fourth-largest (55,481 vs. UNI) crowds in Jack Trice Stadium history.

“We have already sold more than 53,000 tickets for our game against Texas (Oct. 1),” said Pollard.  “Fans wanting tickets to the Texas game better act quickly because we expect to sell out in the next several days.”

Iowa State is on a pace to average more than 50,000 fans per home game this season. The Cyclones’ current home attendance average is ranked 35th nationally. That mark is higher than seven schools in the Big East, eight schools in the Pac-12, seven schools in the ACC and five schools in the Big Ten.

Comments from Coach Chris Janhke:    We struggled to find our rhythm from the start tonight. We came out flat and it was a struggle in each game. We had early deficits in each of the first 4 games that seemed to make us play cautious and tentative the entire match. I did not think that we served or hit as aggressive as we have up to this point. Shenandoah played a scrappy game and did well at converting the easy things we sent their way into points. We did not play to our potential tonight. We must find a way to be more mentally prepared for our opponents. We will be addressing these areas in practice the rest of this week. The team will be participating in the Nevada tournament this coming Saturday.
