The Iowa Hawkeyes have had a bad week. Derrell Johnson-Koulianos got booted from the team after a drug arrest. Then, as if having your career receptions leader kicked of the team isn’t enough, running backs Jewel Hampton and Brandon Wegher both asked to transfer. And starting tailback Adam Robinson was suspended for the upcoming Insight Bowl vs. Missouri for “failing to comply with team expectations and policies.” The news for the Hawks was getting so bad that Vegas actually pulled the game from it’s boards. But for now at least the bleeding appears to have stopped. Rumors were running rampant across the internet and in the local watering holes…my own Ruby’s Pub even held some heated discussions about who was next and how many players would actually be suspended.
But for now they Hawks can get down to business and get ready to face Missouri.
Oh yeah, and the Hawks men’s basketball team lost to Iowa State last week in Iowa City for the first time since Reagan was president (approximately).
