If you don't want to read all that the basis of it is...

Wadley states Brian Ferentz called him a “dumb mother fucker” while on his way to take an exam.

Wadley also states Kirk Ferentz gave him note cards on what to say in press conferences. He also states he turned to alcohol to cope with the constant put downs by the coaching staff. He also states Kirk Ferentz threatened to take away his meal card. Kirk followed through on this and Wadley had to call his mom to get a Domino’s pizza.

Wadley states Brian Ferentz wanted someone on the OLine to injure Reggie Spearman because he hated him and wished he wasn’t there.

Quit making things up.

You don't know your ass from a hole in the ground when it comes to the Iowa program. Stick to suing good people for your fat dumb ass slipping and falling.

Man that's tough, I can't imagine why I would think they would have repercussions from a bunch of former players talking.

I'll let you all figure out why he wasn't given his walking papers like Doyle.
Stop acting like you know anything about it you clown. Nice work on race baiting using false pretenses.

You can think whatever you want but stop presenting your sjw dreams as facts. This story is weeks old and you are just now posting it like it's breaking news.

I don't buy that any of this is racial, and I've heard far worse accounts from some other programs/sports. Coaches say some pretty terrible shit to white kids to get them to leave their scholarship for the next improvement.

A few weeks ago there was a press conference and I kept hearing that there were accusations but no specifics. When it came out, I got the impression that coaches didn't give the players all of the freedom to "express themselves" as much as they wanted. I guess some of it would depend on context and perception. If you're not used to getting red-assed for mistakes, you're going to take it harder than someone who has been parented/coached hard before.

If Wadley hated it so much, why did he try to get Iowa to recruit his brother?
Yep. There is a former Iowa player, black, who has been an on-air talent for the B1G Network for the last 15 years or so. A couple of weeks ago on the BiG radio show on Sirius XM he explained exactly that. He is from a well-to-do upbringing, used to being around white peoples (all his words), and isn't intimidated by being in that environment.

He said a lot of black players come into the program from the hood, not used to being disciplined in the way it takes to play for Iowa. Said the Iowa program isn't built on 5-start talent, it's built on the ethic of team before individual, playing for each other, and outworking opponents in the weight room and practice field.

He said some of all players are made to forego individuality in place of team regardless of color. Some of the black players had never experienced that concept and couldn't understand it wasn't personal.

Are you under the impression Hawkeye fans give a fuck about something like that?

Calling a dude simple jack and making fun of him for having a learning disability doesn't seem like anything other than being a dickhead.
