    12 Iowa Football Players in Hospital

    This is a release from Iowa...I dont know any other details


    Twelve University of Iowa football student-athletes are recovering after being admitted to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics Monday evening.

    A University of Iowa staff physician and football team physician confirmed Tuesday that the student-athletes were responding well to treatment.

    “The student-athletes were admitted throughout the course of Monday evening,” said the UIHC staff physician. “All of the individuals are responding well to treatment as of Tuesday morning. All are in safe and stable condition. At this time we are not sure when any of the individuals will be discharged. Hospital discharge will be on a case by case basis.”

    “Coach Kirk Ferentz is out of town recruiting, but he is aware of the situation and is being kept abreast of the progress being made,” said Gary Barta, UI director of athletics. “Our No. 1 concern is the safety of our student-athletes, so we are pleased with the positive feedback. Our next step is to find out what happened so we can avoid this happening in the future.”

    Individual medical conditions, or identity of the student athletes, will not be released. The UI expects no further comment at this time.

    It has to be a food poisoning thing right?

    If I am not mistaken, sometimes staph infections run through athletic team locker rooms if they aren't kept clean enough. But you don't typically hear about this many people being effected or that it is so severe that multiple people are hospitalized. So, I would tend to think food poisoning...but there could be another angle, I guess.

    Poggi's right...brown pee is not good, but the U of I hospital food, pizza included, isn't too damn bad...except when they stick you on a low sodium/low cholesterol diet for a week despite your numbers coming back absolutely great!
