Doug Wolter: The great Iowan is coming to town -- that can only mean it's Dan Gable
Not since that time long ago when I had a sit-down one-on-one interview with Kirby Puckett have I been as excited to chat with such a legendary athlete. On Wednesday, I received a telephone call from Dan Gable, who in 1999 was chosen the greatest athlete in the history of Iowa by...

Doug Wolter: More drama awaits as fall beckons
This may be the first time I’ve ever directed your attention away from my column and toward some other story on this page. You’ll notice that below this piece (in the print version), there are two major stories on high school sports. Please read these compelling Forum News Service...

Doug Wolter: Warning -- Watching NFL football can drive you crazy
By accident, I made myself think last week. I was discussing my television viewing habits with a friend and I mentioned that, typically, my only real TV interests are news and sports. “Ironically, both of these tend to do nothing but cause me irritation,” I explained. This...

Doug Wolter: Ready or not, football practice starts Monday
The challenges that will begin Monday morning when high school football teams commence the 2015 practice season will be varied and extensive. Monday’s kickoff is happening one full week sooner than it normally does. Teams will have only two weeks of practice before kicking off...

Doug Wolter: A great sport is dying
I come not to bury men’s fast-pitch softball, but to mourn over it. A great and storied sport isn’t quite dead — to borrow a line from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” — but it’s in trouble. Not even 30 years ago, there were enough men’s fast-pitch teams in southern...

Doug Wolter: Kicking it forward
My understanding about “footgolf” is that it’s very much like traditional golf. But instead of using a little white dimpled ball, players use a regulation soccer ball. And they propel it not with a golf club, but instead kick it with their foot. Prairie View Golf Links manager...

Doug Wolter: One winter team (at least) is playing on
As a winter athlete in Minnesota, one of the great things about extending your season is that you not only get to compete in ever bigger events, but you get to delay practice for those messy spring sports. The Minnesota West Lady Jays basketball team opens competition today (5 p.m.)...

Doug Wolter: Things I think when my mind wanders
Random thoughts: --- I can’t remember a time when both the Worthington Trojans boys basketball team and the Worthington Trojans girls basketball team started a season with as many losses as they have now. At the moment, the WHS boys are 0-3 and the WHS girls are 1-3. Never —...

Doug Wolter: Huskies-Arrows rematch is for all the marbles
Jackson County Central football coach Tom Schuller is a Detroit Lions fan, so he knows all about comebacks. The Lions won their last two NFL games with remarkable second-half comebacks, both of which undoubtedly brought a smile to the face of the longtime Huskies mentor. No doubt...

Doug Wolter: A new season, a new set of issues
In high school sports, every new season presents a new set of issues. In my view, two programs are especially intriguing this fall. On the one hand, we have the Mountain Lake Area nine-man football team, which racked up unheard-of scores during the 2013 regular season before succumbing...

Doug Wolter: Is any nickname really safe?
A new front has been opened up in the nickname wars. Forget the Washington Redskins controversy for a moment. Consider the University of Mississippi. Until now, most nickname-bashing has been directed from the outside in — such as the Redskins situation, where owner Daniel Snyder...
