The Iowa Hawkeye's have some off the field issues...

And the hits keep coming. Iowa, a team that did what it normally does this season, start strong and fade down the stretch is now doing it's best imitation of team about to implode.

The teams all-time leading receiver, Derrell Johnson-Koulianos was arrested last month on drug charges. Now comes word that running back Jewel Hampton is leaving the team and running back Adam Robinson has been suspended for the teams bowl game, the Insight.com bowl.

More from the Des Moines Register RIGHT HERE

There are also rumors flying around that there are possibly more suspensions coming and Athletic Director Gary Barta even admitted today that they may have a "Problem" with the schools drug testing program.

It will be interesting to see what, if any, fallout comes from this. Iowa has periodically had some trouble with wayward athletes and it sounds like that might be coming back.

Here's the press conference featuring coach Kirk Ferentz and AD Gary Barta. Thanks KCRG-TV:

Here is the presser in full for those with interest. Thanks again KCRG:
