Regents Head Blasts Iowa Officials for 'Breakdowns'


The, Telegraph - Herald (Dubuque)


IOWA CITY - Iowa Board of Regents President Craig Lang says the University of Iowa is not doing enough to protect students and employees from sexual misconduct in light of the resignation of a former athletics department counselor.

Lang said Wednesday during a board meeting that the regents overhauled campus policies after a high-profile assault case involving Iowa football players in 2007. Lang said one change required employees to participate in sexual misconduct training, and Iowa's handling of the Peter Gray case shows the school "is not doing a good enough job in this area."

Lang says he expects the university will address "the obvious breakdowns" the case exposed.

Gray resigned last month after he was accused of improperly touching athletes for years, conduct that allegedly dated back to the 1990s.

ISU, Mediacom to create new channel

DES MOINES - Iowa State says it is entering into a five-year partnership with Mediacom to distribute programming from Cyclones.tv across Iowa and bordering states.

Cyclones athletic director Jamie Pollard said the agreement paves the way for a fully dedicated Iowa State sports channel on Mediacom's cable television network. No date has been set for that channel's launch.

Mediacom said it will televise roughly 75 Iowa State games a year, including a football game and 5-10 men's basketball games. The programming will be produced by Cyclones.tv, Iowa State's in-house broadcaster, and also include coaches' shows and live media conferences.

Harvin placed on IR

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - The Minnesota Vikings have placed ailing wide receiver Percy Harvin on injured reserve. The move was announced Wednesday afternoon, after Harvin missed another practice because of severely sprained left ankle that has kept him out of the last three games.

Purdue hires Hazell

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Darrell Hazell spent most of his coaching career telling others to "be great." Now he'll try to live up to that message at Purdue.

Boilermakers athletic director Morgan Burke hired the 48-year- old Kent State coach on Wednesday to lead the school dubbed as the Cradle of Quarterbacks out of mediocrity, back into national prominence and presumably back to a Rose Bowl. …
