Watch Iowa Coach Fran McCaffery Get Ejected After Bumping An Official

Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery chose a bad time to get ejected from the Hawkeyes' bout against fourth-ranked Wisconsin in Madison: as they held onto a two-point lead over the undefeated Badgers halfway through the second half.

University Of Iowa Suspends Two Members Of Wrestling Team After They…

Iowa Hawkeyes wrestlers probably reside in an awkward position. They're some of the best in the nation at their sport—the team won NCAA titles in 2008, 2009, and 2010—but they're also wrestlers, which means they inevitably carry all sorts of antibiotic-resistant strains of ringworm and staph and are likely avoided by… » 11/21/12 1:25pm 11/21/12 1:25pm
