Big news, Big Ten fans! Since our post last month, we have a new leader in the number of arrests of student-athletes over the last two years!
Iowa jumped from fourth to first in just two weeks thanks to running back De’Andre Johnson’s one-man crime wave (note: Johnson was dismissed from the team today), Hawkeye baller Bethany Doolittle’s boozing and running Marcus Binns’ petty larceny.
(Seriously, Marcus, switching price tags on shirts at Dillard’s?!? They’ll steer clear of you in the joint for that one.)
