Hawkeyes' Hyde loses Captain status

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Iowa cornerback Micah Hyde will play against Michigan State on Saturday, but the senior is no longer a captain for the Hawkeye football team.

Head coach Kirk Ferentz made that announcement Tuesday at his weekly press conference. Hyde pleaded guilty to interference with official acts and pleaded not guilty to public intoxication following an incident at an Iowa City bar over the weekend.

Ferentz said he's allowing the senior cornerback to play because this is the first time he's been in trouble during his Iowa career.  

Micah Hyde talked with the media about being stripped of his captain status.

"Since I've been here, I've tried to lead my team obviously in the right direction, and this year being my senior year I definitely wanted to have the captain name under my belt," Hyde said. "But it's unfortunate, like I said, it's my life, I've got to learn from it."

Ferentz said, "In Micah's case, Micah might have jaywalked sometime during his 3 and a half years here. I'm not aware of it, so we haven't had a better guy come through here and he had a bad weekend, there's no question about that and he feels terrible about it."

Michigan State and Iowa tee it up at 11:05 Saturday morning from East Lansing.
