Hardened Criminals: We looked at SI’s trumped up college football crime report on Wednesday. Iowa, the school with the second most incidents according to SI, responded. The Hawkeyes had 18 incidents over four years. Fifteen were excessive or underage drinking and two were drug possession. Normal college behavior. The one other incident over four years was a misdemeanor assault. None of these 18 incidents would have been averted by invasive background checks and de facto racial profiling during admissions.
