IOWA CITY, Iowa - At Kinnick Stadium, the visitors' locker room is painted pink - a psychological tactic intended to calm Iowa's opponent. But nothing is soothing about this 70,000-seat venue, where the Nittany Lions (4-2, 2-0 Big Ten) will face Iowa (4-2, 2-0) Saturday at 8 p.m. The forecast calls for a Midwestern chill. Fans clad in black and yellow will heckle, cheer, and do everything they can to cool down Bill O'Brien's red-hot Lions. Penn State is riding a four-game winning streak.

Three summers ago, Dan Chaid's life was topsy-turvy. He had lost his coaching job when Villanova folded its wrestling program, and he then finished a disappointing third in the 1988 Olympic trials. "I'll be ready by 1992; I'll be in shape next time," he vowed after a bitter final loss to Melvin Douglas at 198 pounds in Pensacola, Fla., that June. Last night at the Palestra, Chaid, competing for Team Foxcatcher of Newtown Square, inched closer to his dream with a 4-2 win over Chris Barnes of Sunkist Kids, sweeping his best-of-three series in the John E. du Pont World Team Trials.

AS POLITICAL satires go, "Butter" is about as subtle as a slab of lard served on a slice of ham. Big, broad, but only fitfully funny, it takes a swipe at Iowa and Iowans. A few sucker punches land, thanks largely to a star-studded cast. But it never feels like anything but an outsider's nasty dismissal of the corn-fed corner of red-state culture. Jennifer Garner is cast amusingly against type as Laura, a real Lady Macbeth with a butter knife. She shouldn't have to take up that knife, but the Iowa "Mastery of Butter" judges have nudged her dairy-Degas, 15-time state fair butter-carving champ husband, Bob, out of competition.

One of the big concerns about Ben Simmons, the 6-foot-10 wunderkind from Louisiana State whom the 76ers are likely to select with the No. 1 pick in this year's NBA draft, is that his team didn't achieve all that much in his only season there. Though Simmons averaged more than 19 points, nearly 12 rebounds, and nearly five assists a game, LSU went just 19-14 and didn't qualify for the NCAA tournament. To put that incongruity in perspective, since the NBA instituted the draft lottery in 1985, only once has the top pick been a college player whose team did not play in the tournament that season: Pacific's Michael Olowokandi in 1998.

IOWA CITY, Iowa - This is how scary a wrestler three-time world champion Jordan Burroughs has become: The two highest-ranked competitors in his weight class, 163 pounds, jumped up one class at the U.S. Olympic team trials to avoid him. Last year's world medal earned Burroughs, of Sicklerville and Winslow Township High in Camden County, an automatic berth in Sunday night's best-of-three trials championship series at the University of Iowa. That advantage helped Burroughs, the defending Olympic champion, rout Andrew Howe in a rematch of 2012 trials finalists, 9-3 and 10-0.

BIOLOGICALLY, Ryan Ciolli was John Moffat's nephew. But after Ciolli's father left him at the age of 3, John raised him as if he was his son. Because of John's support, Ryan legally changed his name to Ryan Moffat in June 2011, when he married. "I wanted my kids to know who he was," Ciolli, now 34, said. "And to be able to identify with the last name of him rather than my father, who they'll never meet and never had any real role in raising me. " John Moffat, 63, a lifelong resident of Andorra, died March 6 of cancer.

IOWA CITY, Iowa - Though it seemed to begin the moment President Obama finished taking the oath at his second inaugural, the 2016 presidential election finally gets underway Monday when the first real votes are cast in the Iowa caucuses. Democratic and Republican candidates on Sunday raced across the state, from the Mississippi to the Missouri, exhorting their supporters to turn out for the caucuses while also framing expectations to put them in the best possible light no matter what happens in the voting.

Daniel Maschi is ready to Stand With Rand. "Rand Paul is independent, the only Republican speaking against the establishment about ideas that will actually grow the party," said Maschi, 21, of Perkasie, a senior majoring in political science at West Chester University. After graduation, he plans to help elect the Kentucky senator president. As Paul prepares to formally enter the 2016 race Tuesday, he is counting on young conservatives and libertarians like Maschi for energy, votes, and volunteer work.

IF YOU'VE given up on the Sixers yet still want to root for NBA team, you could do a lot worse than the Los Angeles Clippers. Not because of their lofty record, or the fact that they've already clinched a playoff spot. But because of what they did for Fran McCaffery's son on Monday. McCaffery, of course, is a former Penn player who is now the head coach at Iowa. Two weeks ago, his 14-year-old son Patrick had surgery to remove a malignant tumor on his thyroid. Patrick is a big fan of Clippers star Chris Paul.
