DJK = S.O.L.
The sports world was abuzz this past week after former University of Iowa wide-receiver Derrell Johnson-Koulianos went off on Twitter and announced plans to write a “tell-all” book about his time with the Iowa football program. Johnson-Koulianos is Iowa’s all-time leader in receptions, but was suspended from the team back in 2010 following an arrest on drug-related charges. He's made a lot of accusations, but which, if any, will stick is yet to be seen. DJK is three years removed from playing football at the U of I and hasn’t played any organized football in well over a year after stints with the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes and Arena Football League’s Iowa Barnstormers. Many of these accusations sound more like sour grapes than legitimate complaints. Other former Iowa players have already come out to refute his claims and many have been pretty harsh in their description of their former teammate. Put it all together and I think DJK is out-of-luck when it comes to really getting any traction on these accusations. I hope my man got paid a huge advance for that book deal because his future prospects aren’t looking too bright.
