Bad news loves company when it comes to Iowa football.
After enduring a gut-wrenching loss to Penn State, the program announced Sunday afternoon that two players who didn’t travel with the team for the game have been handed one-game suspensions.
Matt Hankins and Trey Creamer, two defensive backs for the team were charged Sunday morning for disorderly conduct in connection to a loud house party in Iowa City.
From a release:
University of Iowa head football coach Kirk Ferentz announced Sunday two players have been suspended from the team after receiving citations from the Iowa City Police Department early this morning. Trey Creamer and Matt Hankins, second year defensive backs, did not travel with the team to Penn State. They each received citations for noise complaints and disorderly conduct related to a house party.
“Their actions demonstrate poor judgement and are not reflective of the high standards of citizenship that we try to uphold,” said Ferentz. “It is difficult but important to hold student-athletes accountable.”
Both players will not participate in any team activities for the next seven days and are not be eligible to travel to Purdue University.
Hankins started off the year as the No. 1 cornerback for Iowa, but has been hamstrung from an apparent ... hamstring injury. He’s also been battling wrist issues and hasn’t played since Iowa’s loss to Wisconsin. Creamer was projected to be backup corner this year but has been surpassed by true freshmen Riley Moss and Julius Brents.
