When a big football game is held in Iowa City, arrests can easily total 30 to 40 people, Green said. Kinnick Stadium has holding cells where game-goers are kept until they can be taken to the Johnson County Jail. But starting this fall more people will be cited and released to a responsible adult, such as a family member or friend, to reduce jail crowding, Green added.
At Jack Trice Stadium, the number of arrests is far lower with only 48 people arrested during the six-game home football schedule last year. More than 200 others were issued citations.
Jon Fleming, an Ames physician and a University of Iowa graduate who cheers for the Cyclones, said he feels safe attending Cyclone football games at Jack Trice Stadium. But said he’s noticed a difference when he returns to his alma mater in Iowa City for Cyclone-Hawkeye match-ups.
“Their fans are a little bit different breed compared to our fans, so I think they probably need more security over there. You can quote me on that. I think Iowa State fans are probably a little more civil to their opponents and the opposing fans. As an alum of Iowa, of course the fans who are unruly don’t realize I am an alum, but I don’t feel there is a lot of respect for opposing fans over there. I just think, in general, Iowa State fans are more mature and civil,” Fleming said.
Hopefully a good thing that comes of this whole conference realignment mess is our scheduling...no more consecutive Saturdays with Texas and Oklahoma. Don't mind playing them (actually looking forward to those games) but not with it stacked against us as much as it is right now.
