Iowa to Review Drug Testing Policies
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- The University of Iowa says it's reviewing its drug testing policies for student-athletes in the wake of star receiver Derrell Johnson-Koulianos's arrest last week on drug charges.

Iowa athletic director Gary Barta says some "flaws and inconsistencies" have been found in the policies and that some athletes have likely gotten around drug tests in the past.

Barta says officials haven't found any more football players cheating a drug test but are double-checking their drug testing protocols and procedures.

Johnson-Koulianos is the only player suspended for the Insight Bowl on Dec. 28 for a drug-related issues.

Running back Adam Robinson has been suspended for the game for failing to comply with team policies, and oft-injured running back Jewel Hampton plans to transfer.
