Social media? Social injustice. That’s what the state’s two most recognized men’s basketball coaches offered Monday — one with a ban, and the other with a verbal assault. “Social media has taken over so many peoples’ young lives, and I think it’s a disgrace,” Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg said. “I think social media is […]
Arrest warrants have been issued for a man Iowa State University police believe robbed the Iowa football locker room during a game against the Cyclones on Sept. 14 at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames. Police said they believe the man may have fled the country. Rob Bowers, associate director of Iowa State’s Department of Public […]
AMES, Ia. – For a while Friday night, Iowa State basketball coach Fred Hoiberg was speechless. How did your 17th-ranked team rally from yet another double-digit deficit before beating 23rd-ranked Iowa 85-82 in front of a sold out crowd at Hilton Coliseum? “In all honesty, I have no idea how we won that game,” Hoiberg said, […]
Ames, Ia. – Depending which side of the scoreboard you reside, Friday night’s Iowa-Iowa State basketball game is either bigger than the most recent Cy-Hawk football game — or it isn’t. There’s not much middle ground when talking sports at the state’s two major universities, and that’s especially evident in this one. The 8:30 p.m. […]
There will be talking among Iowa State and Iowa men’s basketball players Friday night. You get that many Michiganders and a ball in one room together, even when that room just happens to be 14,384-seat Hilton Coliseum in Ames, and trash will be talked. And especially be watching if Iowa State’s Monte Morris and Iowa’s […]
I heard people discussing Friday night’s Iowa-Iowa State men’s basketball game, which starts at 8:30 p.m. at Hilton Coliseum. Some were saying that this year’s basketball game is bigger than the most recent Iowa State-Iowa football game. Hmmm. It’s the first time since Dec. 19, 1987 that the rivals have met as rated opponents. That […]
Items belonging to nine people were stolen from the Iowa locker room in Ames during the Iowa-Iowa State game Saturday, police said.
By Randy Peterson and Rick Brown email@example.com Iowa football players and staff gained a Cy-Hawk trophy Saturday night, but lost some personal belongings. Someone looted their locker room while a sellout crowd of 56,800 fans watched the Hawkeyes’ 27-21 victory against Iowa State at Jack Trice Stadium. Iowa State University Police Chief Jerry Stewart, through […]
AMES, Ia. – Mark Weisman right. Mark Weisman left. Mark Weisman up the middle. You name it, Iowa’s 236-pound tailback did it, but his 145 yards on 35 carries aren’t the only reason this Cy-Hawk rivalry tilts back to the east. There were other reasons for the Hawkeyes’ 27-21 victory, and one of them is […]
AMES, Ia. – Expect the Iowa State-Iowa football rivalry to live beyond the date its current contract expires. Both athletic directors, Iowa State’s Jamie Pollard and Iowa’s Gary Barta, want to continue what has been an annual backyard bash since 1977. “Gary and I have spoken several times, and it is my understanding he shares […]
