We know one Iowa Hawkeye who won't be playing in a bowl game this year. Derrell Johnson-Koulianos, the team's leading receiver and in fact the school's all-time leader in receptions was arrested Tuesday after police found cocaine, marijuana and other prescription drugs in his house.

The charges, all seven of them, are misdemeanors and Johnson-Koulianos posted bail late Tuesday night. As for football, his coach, Kirk Ferentz suspended him from all team activities.

Read the article closely, because there was something towards the end that made us raise our collective eyebrows. Apparently Ferentz banned Johnson-Koulianos from speaking to the media this season. And in fact, he benched him last week for the season ending game against Minnesota.

Make one wonder exactly why these rules were in place, specifically for him. If he was their best player, he should be available and wouldn't be benched unless someone might have known there might be a problem before that problem came to a head. We aren't making any accusations here, it just sounds a bit fishy.
