A lawsuit filed by a group of former Iowa football players alleging mistreatment within the program will be permitted to move forward, according to a report from ESPN. Some of the allegations have been thrown out, though.
The federal lawsuit, which accuses former staff members of mistreating Black football players, stemmed from former players speaking out against “racial disparities” within the program during the summer months of 2020. Several former players took to social media to discuss their experiences while playing for the Hawkeyes.
