Iowa star Jordan Bohannon said it would've taken 'about $20,000 in a McDonald's bag' to go to Wisconsin
Jordan Bohannon didn’t have much interest in attending Wisconsin. The Iowa native let it be known that he had very little interest in putting on a Badgers uniform as a college basketball player.
The Iowa star and sharpshooter summed up just how much he disliked Wisconsin while speaking with reporters on Tuesday afternoon, as the Hawkeyes prepare for a Top 25 showdown against the Badgers on Thursday. He managed to take a shot at both Wisconsin and Tennessee in the same sentence.
“It would have taken about $20,000 in a McDonald’s bag to go to Wisconsin,” Bohannon said, per David Eickholt of 247Sports.

Bohannon’s reference is to the Dan Patrick report that Tennessee was handing money to recruits in McDonald’s bags during Jeremy Pruitt’s run as head coach. Multiple recruiting scandal allegations resulted in Pruitt’s termination in January.
This season, Bohannon is averaging 10 points and a team-best 4.6 assists per game for a Hawkeyes team that ranks No. 11 nationally. He’s also shooting just under 39% from 3-point range on the year.
Thursday’s game between Iowa and Wisconsin is the first of two bouts between the rivals. You can bet Bohannon is really wanting to go 2-0 against the Badgers this season.
