Iowa State Coach Jim Walden would not confirm Powell's speculation. Walden said he doesn't criticize individuals in the media. "He just disappeared off the team," Walden said. "He didn't come into my office and try to talk to me about it. He just wasn't there one day. We did everything we could to get him involved on special teams." Powell, a member of the Marine Reserves, spent nearly six months in Saudi Arabia. The 6-foot 1-inch, 209-pound senior was featured on the cover of the College Football Association's Sidelines magazine wearing his Marine uniform. He also was saluted by Cyclones fans during half-time of the spring game. He is a graduate of Waterloo Central High School and joined the Iowa State team as a walk-on as a freshman. He is listed as a fifth-team tight end and does not receive a scholarship. He earned a special teams letter in 1990. "I know it's going to look like I want special favors because I was in Saudi Arabia," said Powell. "But that's not the situation. I just didn't think it was fair to be taken off the special teams because I missed one block. I admit to missing the block. I admit to making the mistake. But it wasn't the only reason we lost the game." Per No. Yds. Game 37 355 12 3 27 428 90 15 191 75 15 176 7 5 IS 159 7 3 22 380 7 3 20 227 6 6 13 161 65 13 160 65 13 134 65 Gilbert. Houston Turner.

Iowa Stall ipdatli Iowa State Coach Jim Walden said Sunday he plans to devote as much additional time as he can this week to the offense, which has gone 70 minutes and nearly five quarters without scoring a touchdown. The last Cyclones' touchdown came when Chris Spencer caught a 7-yard pass from Chris Pedersen with 10 minutes 26 seconds to play in the fourth quarter of the 5 Iowa game two weeks ago. Iowa State managed only two field goals in Saturday's 7-6 loss at . Wisconsin. The closest the Cyclones were to a touchdown was when a pass J from Pedersen glanced off the finger tips of Spencer at the Wisconsin 3-yard J line with less than a minute to play. "That's a ball that should have been caught," Walden said. "It was going to " be a tough catch, but it was catchable." Walden said the biggest problem with the Iowa State offense is inconsisten-J cy, and that's the result of uncertainty. "We're trying to play a lot of guys in different positions and this has affected everything," Walden said. "We've got halfbacks playing (fullback) and full- backs playing (halfback). It's no excuse, but it does break down the continuity c of your timing and I think it's affecting our quarterbacking, it's affecting our i coaching and it's affecting the way we play." 0 Walden moved No. 1 tailback Lamont Hill to wide receiver, and placed 0 Leonard Holmes, who opened as the third-string tailback, in the No. 1 job. " Sherman Williams, another tailback, has missed the last two games because of " an ankle injury. ? "The rhythm of the offense is not there," Walden said. "There's nothing 1 magic. We've got to get some problems solved. Indirectly, it's all my fault. We i had a lousy offensive effort that cost us the football game." I Iowa Stat Injury updatt: Offensive guard Doug Skartvedt didn't make 1 the trip to Wisconsin because of a bruised knee, but he is expected to practice , this week. Williams did not make the trip, either, and Walden said Sunday he 2 was unsure of his availability this week. Rio updatt! Trevor Cobb rushed for a career-high 216 yards and three X touchdowns Saturday night to lead Rice to a 28-19 victory over Tulane. It's the "best start for the Owls (2-0) since 1972. ' Cobb, a junior, already is Rice's all-time leading rusher. He had 36 rushes ; Saturday. The game Saturday will be Rice's first home game of the season. c "We're playing an Iowa State team that we felt would be the best non-conference foe we'd play this year," said Rice Coach Fred Goldsmith, whose team opened the season Sept. 14 with a 36-7 victory against Northwestern. , Riot Injury updatt! Rice defensive tackle Corey Seymour, a three-year starter, injured his right knee Saturday against Tulane and will miss the rest of o the season. Randy Peterson Friday's matches. Sunday, though, they were back in full force. Gorman had taken back his protest. "We figured, 'Hey, they're going to be there anyway,' " Gorman said. "We just accepted them." Courier hadn't been so accepting. Serving at 3-3 in the second set, Courier asked for support from his compatriots. He yelled. He gestured. He won the next point and listened to the appreciation rain down. "This is America," he yelled toward the stands. "How can 40 or 50 Germans be outcheering you guys. Let's get motivated. Let's get serious. Let's not let these people get obnoxious in our own home." Agassi gave them no chance. Even the Arrowhead crazies would have been impressed. Saturday, he felt his services weren't needed and didn't attend Thursday's practice. "I guess you could say that I quit, although I don't consider myself to be a quitter," said Powell, a senior. "I felt that since I was a senior and it's my last year, that I should have be able to travel with the team. I made all the trips last year. But when I didn't see my name on the (travel) list, I didn't feel like there was any purpose to stay out. I don't know right now if I'll try to get back on the team or not." Powell said the reason he wasn't one of the 60 players on the sidelines during Saturday's 7-6 loss in Madison, Wis., was a mistake he made a week earlier against Iowa, where the player he was supposed to have defended blocked a punt that led to a safety in Per Att.

I B Iowa update: After beating Hawaii, 53-10, and Iowa State, 29-10, Iowa lhad an open date last week. Northern Illinois is the Hawkeyes' final non-conference opponent before starting Big Ten play Oct. 5 against Michigan in Iowa rCity. "Thank goodness for the open date," Iowa Coach Hayden Fry said. "I "wouldn't mind having one each season. The week off helped our players who were injured and bruised." c fry gave his players Saturday and Sunday off. The team will'resume prep-! arations for Northern Illinois today. Fry is still seeking improvement in the Hawkeyes' punting. Jim Hujsak and ;Scott Fisher averaged only 28 yards on five punts against Iowa State. Fry said 'the No. 1 punting job is still wide open between Hujsak, Fisher and freshman 'Todd Romano. I fl Iowa Injury updato: Fry said there's an outside chance that split end Jeff Anttila will be able to play against Northern Illinois. If he can't play then, Fry expects him to be ready for Michigan. Anttila injured a hamstring against Iowa State. Fry said second-team defensive tackle Mike Wells, who missed the Iowa State game because of a knee injury, should be able to practice today. B Northorn Illinois updatas After trailing only 7-3 at halftime, the Huskies lost Saturday night at Kansas State, 34-17. " Northern Illinois' touchdowns came on a 14-yard pass from Stacey McKin-'ney to Larry Wynn, and a 20-yard run by Brett Schroeder. 6 Tom Rhomberg, a junior from Dubuque, la., who had been Northern Illinois' No. 2 free safety, started at strong safety against Kansas State. B Northorn Illinois Injury updatu Free safety Jeff Taylor injured an ankle 'against Kansas State. His status for the Iowa game won't be known until later 'in the week. RonMaly NORTHERN IOWA r t B Oppontnt: No. 2-ranked Idaho (3-0). B Whiriwhoni 8:05 p.m. CDT, Kibbie Dome, Moscow, Idaho. ' B Northorn Iowa updato: The Panthers may be headed in the wrong direction in order to get back on the winning track. " "There is no question (Idaho) is a great offensive football team," Northern Iowa Coach Terry Allen said Sunday, one day after the Panthers' 21-20 loss at .Southern Illinois. ' It was the third time in the last four seasons that the Panthers lost their Jeague opener. I "That was one of those games where it's hard to get a lot of sleep afterward," Allen said. "Counting myself, there's probably a dozen people that have fto look at the mistake they made that cost us the football game. There were so many pivotal situations where we could've put the game out of reach." 0 To beat a Big Sky Conference team like Idaho, Allen said Northern Iowa's secondary can't afford to be beaten deep. B Northorn Iowa injury updato: The Panthers had no major injuries Saturday. B Idaho update: Idaho, which had a 9-4 record and was a Division I-AA 'quarterfinalist last season, won its ninth straight regular-season game Saturday, 48-14, at Big Sky Conference rival Montana State. Idaho averages 558 yards per game. True to the league's passing tradition, -they average 402 yards through the air. The Vandals have gained at least 500 ototal yards in five consecutive games. Quarterback Dong Nusimeier has completed nearly 61 percent of his pas- 1 ses (73 of 120) for 1,083 yards. Kaiey Dunn has 24 catches for 318 yards and i three touchdowns. Dunn was a first-team all-America pick last season after setting a Division I-AA record with 88 receptions. Devon Pearce, a second-1 team all-American last season, leads the ground game with 220 yards. ' Idaho has a six-game home winning streak.
