There’s not a whole lot to do while living and attending college in Iowa. So, their players have resorted to stealing the mats off the floor of their host locker room.
Surprisingly, they aren’t the only team to do this. According to an article written by the Wall Street Journal, Purdue, Florida State, and Texas Tech have all been caught trying to steal the memorabilia. They had to return the rug, but Iowa’s Nicholas Bear was able to snatch one without opposition.
Hawkeye star guard Jordan Bohannon said he’d give the rug back under one big condition.
He, like many other NCAA athletes, wants to make a little money off of his name and I don’t blame him. He’s a baller, and the NCAA cheapskates can afford one less rug.
