Two more Iowa Hawkeyes suspended

Two more lowa Hawkeyes have been suspended for the September 1 season opener against Northern Illinois. Offensive tackle Alaric Jackson and defensive lineman Cedrick Lattimore will be suspended for violating team rules. The Hawkeyes say the suspensions aren’t for legal matters. But coach Kirk Ferentz says Jackson and Lattimore’s issues surfaced in the late spring and both players were given guidelines to meet. While Ferentz called their response “excellent,” it apparently wasn’t strong enough to avoid missing the opener. This means both of the Hawkeyes’ starting offensive tackles will miss the Northern Illinois game. You’ll remember Tristan Wirfs has been suspended for one game after being charged with drunk driving on July 29.
