Iowa CB Hyde apologizes for “stupid” mistake

Iowa cornerback Micah Hyde says he made a stupid mistake and let

a lot of people down after being arrested in Iowa City last

weekend.

Hyde apologized to his family, coaches and teammates on Tuesday

in his first public comments since being booked on suspicion of

public intoxication and interference with official acts early last

Saturday.

Coach Kirk has removed Hyde, a three-year starter, as a team

captain. He also tightened the team’s curfew after Hyde and

reserves Ray Hamilton and Drew Clark were arrested in separate

alcohol-related incidents.

Ferentz says he didn’t suspend any of those players for

Saturday’s game at Michigan State largely because of their positive

behavior prior to last weekend.
