Doctor Says Kill Improving, Could Coach This Week


September 12th, 2011 by Jim Field

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Minnesota’s team physician says coach Jerry Kill is “doing very well” as he recovers from a seizure suffered late in the game against New Mexico State on Saturday.  Doctor Pat Smith held a news conference on Tuesday. Smith says Kill is alert, eating and all tests have come back normal. He wouldn’t put a timetable on Kill’s return, but says his gut feeling is the coach “absolutely” will be on the sidelines this weekend against Miami of Ohio.  Kill collapsed on the sidelines in the closing seconds of the loss to the Aggies. It’s the third time in his coaching career he has had a seizure on game day.  Smith says team trainers will work harder to keep him hydrated
to try and avoid a recurrence.

Jantz Named Big 12 Player of Week


September 12th, 2011 by Jim Field

(AMES) – Iowa State quarterback Steele Jantz is the Big 12 Conference Offensive Player of the Week after leading the Cyclones on four consecutive touchdown drives, three in overtime to lead Cyclones to a dramatic 44-41 three-overtime win over archrival Iowa Saturday at Jack Trice Stadium.

Jantz made four critical third-down conversions late – including a third-and-15 and third-and-20. He rushed for 2 yards on a fourth-and-1, all on a 59-yard, 12-play drive to tie the game with 1:04 left in regulation. Jantz, in just his second collegiate start, hit on 25-of-37 passes for 279 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions.  He also rushed for 42 yards to compile 321 total yards. Iowa State’s 44 points are its most against Iowa since the teams met for the first time in 1894.  Iowa State’s 473 total yards are Iowa State’s best offensive output since tallying 512 vs. Kansas in 2009. Jantz’ single game QB rating was 166.58.

Iowa pheasant population may not be as low as official count suggest

Ag/Outdoor, Sports

September 12th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

A survey released last week showing Iowa’s pheasant population is at an all-time low is not only bad news for hunters, it’s a big blow for the Iowa economy. Kevin Baskins, spokesperson for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, says hunters spend a lot of money on hotels, food and equipment – but they’re not spending as much when their chances for a successful hunt are affected.

“A lot of that spending occurs in Iowa’s most rural areas, where there’s more amble hunting opportunities,” Baskins said. “So, certainly this can have a big impact on main streets across the state because if we don’t have the pheasants, we’re not going to have the hunters coming into those smaller communities and spending money during that time frame.”

Iowa’s 2011 pheasant hunting season runs from October 29 through January 10, 2012. The D-N-R’s roadside survey, conducted in August, found an average of 7 birds counted for each 30 miles of route driven. That compares to 11 birds per route last year. Baskins says the situation may not be as bad as it seems.

“A lot of our biologists and people who were involved in with that roadside count have noted that since the official count was over, they have been seeing more birds,” Baskins said. “We would guess at this point, if we are off in terms of our estimations, we’re probably off on the low side. There may be more birds out there than what we’re projecting at this point.”

The dwindling pheasant population is blamed primarily on five consecutive winters of above average snowfall, in addition to a series of cold and wet springs.

Fitzpatrick leads Bills to 41-7 romp over Chiefs


September 11th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Ryan Fitzpatrick threw four touchdown passes, two of them to journeyman tight end Scott Chandler, and the Buffalo Bills romped to a season-opening 41-7 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Fitzpatrick finished with 208 yards passing for the Bills, who who hadn’t score 40 points in an opener since a 40-7 victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Sept. 6, 1992. Fred Jackson added 112 yards rushing for Buffalo. Matt Cassel threw for 119 yards with a touchdown and interception for Kansas City. It was the most lopsided season-opening loss in franchise history, and the worst home loss by the Chiefs since a 45-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers 35 years ago.

Molina powers Cardinals past Braves


September 11th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Yadier Molina had three hits, including a three-run double, and the St. Louis Cardinals moved back into the playoff picture by completing a three-game  sweep of the slumping Atlanta Braves with a 6-3 win Sunday. The Cardinals pulled within 4 1/2 games of NL wild card-leading Atlanta. They have 16 games left and open a three-game set in Pittsburgh on Monday. The Braves start a three-game series with the Marlins on Monday and have 15 games remaining. Atlanta has dropped seven straight games at Busch Stadium and hasn’t won in St. Louis since Sept. 13, 2009. Jake Westbrook (12-8) allowed two runs and five hits in 5 1-3 innings for the Cardinals. Jason Motte pitched a scoreless ninth for his fifth save in eight chances.
