    Interesting idea. I would be interested in seeing the followup on this one.

    They could save everyone a lot of hassle and just have it at Kinnick.

    Reminds me of the "Free Boat" scene in The Simpsons. I didn't think towns actually did this.

    Re: Self Arrest Day

    There was an old episode of COPS where the police sent letters to people with outstanding warrants telling them they'd won a free car/motorcycle/trip. When the people showed up, they had to show their ID to "claim" their prize and then the cops would storm out from behind a curtain and arrest them.

    I would think that would be considered entrapment or something.

    Entrapment actually only means that the Police are ALSO engaging in illegal activities to ENTICE others to break the law. Lying to criminals is actually very legal.

    I'm not sure why. These two had their chance to play for the U of I and they blew it. If they were still on the team I'd be concerned, but they aren't so I don't know why Hawk fans would be upset over this.
