"after their investigation, if they felt some kind of criminal charges would've been appropriate, then i assume that the probably will contact us then" says kevin wollmuth, chief deputy. jack: until then, the school is conducting itsr own internal investigation. stephanie: policy and procedural errors unearthed after an indepth investigatoin into the iowa state penitentiary. it all happened after inmate justin kestner escaped on july fourth. the warden says those errors allowed a dangerous inmate to escape without being decteced for hours. kestner gave a detailed route of his escape, and told investigators he made several practice runs to time the escape during the fourth of july fireworks.
he was found walking along the road in illinois about 110 miles from the prison. jack/ots: governor branstad wants to privatize medicaid. that plan has some iowans and state senator rob hogg asking how this will benefit everyone. hogg is also the chair of the state senate oversight committee. in an email to governor branstad, hogg asks for specific details on his plan. hogg says that he and other iowans doubt that this plan will save money and on behalf of the oversight committee he is formally asking for evidence that privatizing medicaid will save the state millions of dollars. jack: local 5 asked the governor about his plan during his weekly press conference today. under the umbrella of medicaid, is a program called hawk-i. it's an option for families who need insurance for their kids. "22:48:51- why would you consider transferring the administration of that program to out of state companies? 22:49:10 branstad - we're doing what 25 other states have done. going to a manages care system to better coordinate benefits. " jack:
the hawk-i board was not asked if it approves of the governor's decision to try and privatize the hawk-i program. some of the board members, including state senator janet petersen, are not happy about it. "13:03:20 i imagie most members of hte hawk-i board would say if it's not broken why fix it. i would imagie if we had an opportunity to vote on it, we'd keep the existing program as it is. " jack: there could be a legal issue here as well. the iowa attorney general is looking at whether the governor overstepped when he made the decision to privatize hawk-i without approval from the board. but none of this is a done deal, even though the out of state companies have been picked. the federal government has to give the okay on these changes. stephanie: coming up on local 5 news at 10...30 years ago, a magical moment happened at kinnick stadium--it's one fans will never forget. we'll have a hawkeye flashback to 1985. jack: but next, a dry spell and lots of wind is causing the perfect conditions for

" the last two teams we just played are two and three like i just told you 700 yards is a
does. we got a great challenge our kids understand that and as always they look forward to the weeks work and what will be at the end of it. it's a big challenge mentally but if you're a football player you love competition we'll be up for it and our defense is up for it. you gotta come out and play every weekend when you're in a 3-4 defense just like we came out flat against tt we knew we couldn't do that against tcu so we're in a 3-4 defense so the linebackers gotta run. the outside linebackers gotta run and when we can out run them it'll lead to success. put some game film on and watch him go the distance get handed the ball. their receivers are so good and that's why i think they overlook their running game they got a complete offensive team. linnwood is a great player, a great player, he's strong he's fas he's powerful he's got a great one cut ability. he's got outstanding vision so find it where is it. and yeah their offensive line is pretty dang good too. " i think you gotta start with the pass first and force them to run the
ball because they got so many weapons on the outside with those group of receivers. you get people deployed to defend a coleman you get a one on one tackle situation in space in the field and he makes a guy miss or he doesn't make a great tackle and there's no body else but the back judge and he ain't made a tackle yet. jon/fullscreen iowa state takes on baylor with a kickoff set for 11 am saturday morning from waco. tune in to cyhawk rewind as jeff woody helps me break down on the game film. jon/fullscreen akrum wadley-- iowa's sophomore the big ten of the week with 26 carries for 204 yards and four touchdowns a huge day against northwestern this past moves up to ap football poll. jon/3shot (wrap sports) jack: we'll be right
