Earlier today, Ben noted that star Iowa star cornerback Micah Hyde had been arrested on a pair of misdemeanor charges.

As it turns out, Hyde was just one of three Hawkeyes who found themselves on the wrong side of the law recently.

Tight end Ray Hamilton was arrested early Saturday morning for presence on premise (licensed liquor establishment) after hours.  Shortly before that, offensive lineman Drew Clark was arrested for public intoxication.

The sudden burst of off-field issues prompted head coach Kirk Ferentz to release a statement.

“I was disappointed to learn of the events involving three team members, as all three of these student-athletes have been good citizens during their time in our program,” Ferentz said. “We will follow protocol set by the UI student-athlete Code of Conduct, as well as taking additional measures within the program.”

The Hawkeyes were on their bye weekend and next plays at Michigan State next saturday.

    These student-athletes represent their generation
    They are no better nor worse than the others.They are just higher profile. The school pays for their educations. They should be expected to set a higher standard. Just part of the price you pay for your education.

    Continued off field troubles for Hawkeyes. Hopefully Ferentz will dismiss the offenders.

    At least they didn’t get arrested for real crimes.
