When are you gentlemen going to grow up and become the responsible role models that you are suppose to be. You shame the team, the school, as well as your very large followers, but most of all you shame yourself. You are the ones that give the Hawkeyes a BAD name. There is a time and place for those things that you did. Everytime that one of you guys get in trouble I just want to disown the Hawkeyes as a whole. All that I can do is just shake my head and try to continue on. I have been a follower for 30 plus years. I go to your games to support you and pray that you become model citizen and well as the best college team around. Please think the next time you decide to pick up that acoholic drink and consume, PLEASE!!! GO HAWKEYES!!!
