    IC bar patron age vote?

    So I heard there is a vote to change the legal bar entrance age to 21 in IC. This issue really doesn't concern me considering I am of age, however if it passes you can't help but think this would be better for ISU to attract recruits against the hawkeyes...

    Yes it would. It would level the playing field a bit...and put some bars out of business. when you have 30K students and only juniors and seniors can go to the bar versus Older Fresh, So, JR and SR. that would make for a lot less bar crowd. That is why ISU has some of the best House and Frat parties around.

    I hope that it passes because then there will be absolutely no reason to go Iowa City.

    Re: IC bar patron age vote?

    Really I don't see the bar age as making much of a difference. If a player picks a school soley based on whether he can go to the bars or not, then I probably wouldn't want them on my team.

    On a side note, I hope The City doesn't change the law unless they grandfather it in, as I usually make about 10 trips to Iowa City soley to go to the bars as I'm underage right now. Face it, Ames sucks during the winter and there's nothing better than a fun night out at the bars. If this happens I feel for the underage students in Iowa City as the house party scene absolutely sucks compared to Ames. The residence halls are awful too because of the dry policy and $500 fine as well as eviction for the second offense. In Ames I don't even have to leave my dorm room to party.

    A reason to appose it would be that it would cause fewer unclassman Hawkeye players to drink somewhere else and make it less likely to get arrested in the stupid ped-mall. It would cut down on broken jaws caused by sucker punches and eye pokes caused form pool cues.

    Re: IC bar patron age vote?

    I hope that it passes, more for the health of the students more than any other reason. I also can't imagine how it would help/hinder recruiting. If a student chooses where to play based on if they can get into the bars or not would raise some giant red flags IMO.

    Re: IC bar patron age vote?

    Just because someone chooses a school because it has a better nightlife doesn't make them an unworthy player or student. Face it, alot of high school students don't know what they want to do when they go to college, besides have fun. It isn't a vote that will make or break Iowa... but it will definately have some bearing on a few of our recruits.

    Detasseler... please tell me you worked for the USDA Plant Intro Station..

    Re: IC bar patron age vote?

    Oh and for anyone who is curious, the vote is November 9th... My guess is that it won't pass.
    But if it does... I can assure you that you won't be "grandfathered in".

    Oh, I worked for USDA, working in corn during the summer is pretty much brutal. Especially pollinating.

    That completely depends on how many students vote.

    Re: IC bar patron age vote?

    Are we sure it is a vote by the people or more than likely the city council?

    It is a special election in which the public votes. A petition was submitted to the City Council, which meant they had two choices: they could sign it as city law, or they could put it on the ballot of a special election. Since all but two of the council members have gone on record saying that they don't support the measure and/or think it is not something the city wants, they chose to put it on the ballot.

    As mentioned, that election is November 9th. Thanks to the same-day voter registration state law that went into action on July 1, UI students can now just show up to the polling place on election day and vote. None of this "register 10 days before the election" crap anymore. As I said in the last thread about this issue, UI students have notoriously horrible turnout rates for any election (even for a university), except when you threaten their right to get plastered. They will show up in droves for this thing.

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.
