Iowa State women’s basketball coach Bill Fennelly (FEN’-lee) will begin treatment for what the university says is an invasive cancerous lesion on his vocal cords.
ISU issued a statement Thursday saying doctors found the lesion during a recent exam. Fennelly will undergo radiation treatments for five weeks beginning later this month. The university says doctors expect a full recovery.
Fennelly says in the statement that he will face his health challenge “head on” and he will continue to work with his staff and players.
Fennelly is now in his 17th season with the Cyclones. He has approval from his doctors and family to keep coaching.
T.J. Moe led Missouri in receptions last year. He’s the same go-to guy with a new quarterback, even if the numbers haven’t been as prolific.
The shifty junior has 23 catches the first four games for the Tigers, who return from a week off to play at No. 20 Kansas State on Saturday. He had a season-best seven catches for 119 yards in a loss to top-ranked Oklahoma last week.
Moe said his production is on the rise because James Franklin, who replaced Blaine Gabbert, is getting more comfortable running the offense.
An attorney for the man accused of poisoning Auburn’s Toomer’s Corner has asked to withdraw from the case.
Glennon Threatt Jr. filed a motion Thursday seeking to withdraw as the attorney for Harvey Updyke Jr. He cites comments Updyke made on a Birmingham radio show on Sept. 28 when he apologized to Auburn fans “for the damage I have done” but stopped short of confessing to the crime.
Threatt says he advised Updyke against calling the show. He says he doesn’t want to comment further until Lee County Circuit Court Judge Jacob A. Walker III rules. Updyke is also represented by another Birmingham lawyer, Everett Wess.
Updyke, an Alabama fan, has pleaded not guilty to criminal mischief and desecration of a venerated object.
