Iowa Football Players Hospitalized For Kidney Condition, According To Report

The 12 Iowa Hawkeyes football players who had to be hospitalized Monday night were admitted for a kidney condition brought on by excessive exercise, according to a report by Adam Jacobi (a report which lines up with that one Black Heart Gold Pants commenter’s claim). Jacobi:

A source close to the team confirmed to CBSSports.com that the malady afflicting the players is a kidney condition brought on after an excessively intense offseason workout.

Freshman Hawkeyes linebacker Jim Poggi was also quoted by Hawkeye Nation as discussing the ailment on Facebook. According to Poggi, one observed symptom has been brown urine and some players will have to stay in the hospital Tuesday night.

The exercise, as mentioned by BHGP, was some sort of extremely competitive squat sprint, though who knows for sure at this point. They do crazy things for fun in Iowa, y’all. The more news that comes out on this, the more it sounds like everyone is going to be OK.
