this morning, hawkeye nation is swimming in a pool of tears and shock the iowa football team fell well short of victory last night against stanford in the 2016 rose bowl. kcrg-tv9's sports team caught all the action in pasadena, california. good morning from the rose bowl. i'm scott saville along with scott westerberg and i'm still in shock. what a performance from christian mccaffrey, a rose bowl record 368 all-purpose yards. they just couldn't tackle him. right from the start you saw guys slipping and sliding. he's juking guys out of their shorts. it was an impressive performance for mccaffrey and the iowa players agreed after the game. "he's a great player. there's a reason why he was the runner-up for the heisman. he obviously displayed that today. he's a great player, great feet, great balance, great vision, ability to catch out of the backfield. he's just a great player." "he's just got such good vision. you might not see a hole there, but it's like he can see it before it opens up. add that on top of the fact that he's really shifty, really good in the open field, and you got the ingredients for a heck of a player." "i always thought he was good on film, but he's much better in person, that's for sure. is he faster than you thought? yeah, he's faster and quicker. he's really good. there's a reason he almost won the heisman."
around, quick cuts. he has the breakaway speed. he's a great running back overall." "was he quicker than you thought out there? i wouldn't say any particular feature surprised me except his ability to not be tackled. he has a remarkable ability to stay on his feet." they were down 14-0 in the first quarter and starting to move the ball and then the c.j. beathard interception really killed them. that seemed to be the straw that broke the camel's back. it felt like they were going to make it a game and that pick six really took the wind out of the sails. "what did you see on the pick? it was man to man coverage out there. i was late getting the ball to meer and the defensive back made a great play." it took them a while to bounce back but in the second half they times so it was nice to see them go out with a fight. tough loss for the seniors. they took it pretty hard but this iowa team has a lot of great players coming back like c.j. beathard.
thanks guys! before the game, the iowa hawkeyes ranked 5th in the nation with a historic 12-and-1 season record. still to come, we'll take a look at the last iowa team to win the rose bowl. the rose bowl wasn't short of political rivalry. iowans ran into presidential campaigns away from the caucus state. some skywriting above the tournament of roses parade took aim at businessman donald trump. six planes spelled out the phrases 'america is great, trump is disgusting'
advertising company took credit for the writing. former hewlett- packard c-e-o carly fiorina was also a hot topic leading up to the rose bowl. fiorina is a stanford alum, but yesterday she wrote a tweet throwing her support behind the hawkeyes. she said, "love my alma mater, but rooting for a hawkeyes win today" many on twitter fired back at the presidential candidate, saying she was pandering to iowa voters. today, people can receive free admission to the grout museum district in waterloo. according to the waterloo-cedar falls courier, the public event is a token of appreciation from the museum to voters! the district is saying thank you, after voters helped pass the cultural and scientific facilities levy. on november 3rd, the 600 thousand dollar measure got the go ahead. it helps fund five buildings within the district, that includes the sullivan brothers iowa veterans museum, and the grout museum of history and science.
to an extra 15 dollars per year for a 100-thousand dollar house. if you're thinking of visiting the museums-you can head over starting at 9 this morning. admission is free until the buildings close at 5 this evening. each museum is offering a different selection of activities, meet and greets, and refreshments. wide-spread flooding is devastating southern parts of missouri and illinois. meremec, and missouri rivers left their banks-causing about 11 levees to fail, and at least 22 deaths. as of today, flood waters are beginning to recede and people are cleaning up and assessing damage. one of the hardest hit places in missouri is st. louis county. there, watelevels are improving prompting officials to lift a state of emergency. flooding had knocked out a water treatment plant in high ridge, just southwest of st. louis. it left thousands of residents without safe drinking water. kcrg-tv9's dave franzman shows us how a group of iowa soldiers is helping people recover. while many iowans slept in after new year's eve celebrations, iowa national guard soldiers got
of mercy.sot/nat their job... prepare and deliver this convoy of 20 water treatment and transport vehicles to missouri communities where clean water is in short supply. " we don't get to do missions like this very often... it's very exciting for us do our mos and help " the military occupation specialty... or m-o-s... for soldiers in the 334th brigade support battalion includes delivering clean water wherever needed. yesterday, iowa governor terry branstad told the guard to help missouri. the "water dogs" as they call themselves prepared the tankers and a tactical portable treatment system that can produce 15-hundred gallons of drinking water per hour. on new year's morning, there was time for a quick breakfast and some last minute instructions. sot/nat the plan was to split the convoy to avoid congestion on highways during
trip. some soldiers have done flood duty before... distributing water and cleaning supplies. for others, this was all a "first." "it's my first time in the guard doing something besides training... and i'm really excited... it will be a good experience for me" soldiers in this specialized unit say people take clean water for granted... until it's not there. their job, for the next 10 days, is to make sure it is there for missouri residents until the water plant is back on line. dave franzman, kcrg tv news. high ridge, missouri produces water for approximately 65-hundred people. the iowa soldiers will also take water to the nearby town of murphy, missouri. hikers in dubuque are fulfilling new year's resolutions to get outside more. it's part of a state wide effort called "the first hike, which encourages people to enjoy the outdoors during the winter. a group of about one hundred hikers at the mines of spain took a walk through that state park
chance to see some wildlife. "because there's no vegetation, easier. the white tail deer, be a glimpse of red fox out there. wood pecker." this was the fifth year in a row park rangers at the mines of spain led the first hike on new year's day. "nat crying " the new year welcomed its first cedar rapids baby, yesterday. everett werling was born at 6-46 friday morning at unitypoint st. luke's. he weighed in at eight pounds seven and a half ounces. dad, eric is a university of iowa police officer. he was supposed to be at the rose bowl for work - but skipped the big day for the birth! new years was already a special time for the new parents. now, even more so. "yesterday was actually our wedding anniversary. we got married on new years eve. we thought what better day to celebrate and have a party. we spent our anniversary together, laboring, then he decided to wait until the
special day for his birthday." everett wasn't the first baby born in eastern iowa. tenley schares was born at 1-53 yesterday morning at university of iowa hospitals and clinics to bridgette and justin schares of north liberty. birthday twins or not? one couple gets a pleasant surprise... well a couple of them over the holiday.

the rose bowl for the first time in 25 years. the hawkeyes were hoping to end a couple of streaks: they haven't won the rose bowl since 1959 and they haven't won a bowl game since 2010. ... we go to pasadena, lots of black and gold in the stands ... but stanford set the tone on the very first play from scrimmage... kevin hogan hits christian mccaffrey over the middle... and he outruns everyone going 75 yards to paydirt... cardinal goes up 7-0 ... later in the first quarter, hawkeyes down two scores...c.j. beathard with a terrible throw... picked off by quenton meeks and he takes it back 66 yards the other way... stanford led 21-0 after one quarter ... 2nd quarter, mccaffrey shows his versatility with the punt return... jukes a couple of iowa defenders... and he's gone... 63-yard touchdown... he finished with a rose yards tricky plays throughout the year... watch

but i feel comfortable with our guys that we'd be able to come back especially with c.j. under center." "this game won't define this team. one play doesn't define a game. we had plenty play but to put it on that would
really diminish how they played. they played a tremendous game in all phases." "we were excited. we felt like we were ready all week, but it's not always the case when it translates over to the game. they came out and got after us quick. it is what it is." "the momentum was just taken away from us pretty early and when you're not playing your football it's easy for everything to spiral downhill. coming in the locker room we just told each other that the score is the score, it was just how we were going to finish. we want to be known that we always finish and we're always going to fight. coach ferentz just said that we fought really hard for a good 13 games but this game we didn't play our football." trt: 1:13 oc: "we didn't play our football" ... in other bowl games, former hawkeye

instead of a ball dropping at midnight, there was a rising star-but the countdown was a bit off. at midnight, the star showed there was still 27 seconds to go until the new year. the glitch left onlookers a tad confused. but the the countdown hiccup didn't stop the party in chicago that night. some people at the celebration say the mess- up wasn't that big of a deal. twins share lots of things but these two siblings won't have to share the same birthday party. they were born on different days and different years in san diego. a baby girl was born one

game of the season. iowa's defense had a tough time against stanford's heisman trophy finalist- running back christian mccaffrey. at the start of the game, mccaffrey got ahold of the ball-and ran 75 yards for a touch down. that momentum kept going, giving stanford 21 points in the first quarter. iowa's offense struggled to get anything going. in the third, they put up a meager 3 points. stanford, way ahead with 38. in the 4th quarter, iowa quarterback cj beathard passed for 239 yards grabbing iowa two desperate touchdowns. but too little, too late. stanford takes the hawkeyes down. a final score of 45 to 16. the loss also means that iowa still has not won a 9's chris earl got to watch part of the 2016 rose bowl with one of the few hawkeyes who knows how it feels to win one. deep inside this home in hudson
basement full of hawkeye fans, ready to watch the rose bowl. except don shipanik was also there, in an true "football viewing" chair... he knew what these young men were going through. "42:13 nobody can appreciate it as much as somebody who has gone through it. " don is 79 now... but on january 1, 1959, he was a young man -- all of 22 -- a chicago kid who came to iowa... " 35:20 i had chosen iowa over michigan state." he was undersized, at about 168 pounds and playing right guard on offense and a linebacker on defense. that's just the way it was back then. and closing the '58 season and the '59 rose bowl with head coach forest evashevski's words still ringing for don. "43:01 eva: when we came into the locker room before the game, and he got up in front of the team and said 'gentlemen, you have 60 minutes of football to play and a lifetime to remember it. " iowa did everything right in that '59 rose bowl, jumping on cal 20-0 by halftime and winning 38-12. the historic play, running back bob jeter's 81-yard run in the third quarter. don shipanik had a great view...from his, uh, seat. "40:32 i was standing there looking at the field and there was jeter running for the
" 41:40 john lucera... gary growinkle... where are you in this? i'm way back there! " for the 4 p-m kickoff, don and i sat back... watching what would unfold... " 52:28 if they pull this off, what would it mean to you to no longer be on the team that won the last rose bowl? well, it would be good not to have to say it! " ...his family pulled out that 1958 helmet... " 56:00 see this mark right there? when i look at that one, i think to myself 'glad i had my helmet on'. " and of course... 11 seconds into the game. " 53:10 they'd better catch him, they'd better catch him... " the start of a lopsided loss for iowa.... yet even 57 years later, that day in 1959... is marked forever for don shipanik. " 43:34 a great experience, something that very very very few people have the opportunity to go through but it was the greatest thrill of my life, to play in the rose bowl. "
"part of the last hawkeye team to win the rose bowl". the rose bowl game had bars and grills so full they turned some away. we headed to the chrome horse slop house and saloon, where managers said business was "insane". with new years and the game they expected to do about a week's worth of business in two days. they stocked up on food and alcohol in anticipation, but it wasn't enough. employees nearly ran out of liquor and had to make a run. the spot hit capacity of about 400 half an hour before the game. some of the savvy game day customers beat the crowd by showing up a little before the spot opened at around 11. they had no problem spending the day, about nine hours, waiting and
watching. "is it really nine hours? probably when it's all said and done. probably right. that is a long time, but worth it. worth it."
