Iowa resident calls cops on Kinnick Stadium
Apparently 70,000 people can make a lot of noise. And apparently some people don’t like that.
A historic day in Iowa City saw the Hawkeye wrestling team and football team deliver back-to-back victories at Kinnick Stadium. Needless to say, the place was rocking when the unbeaten Hawkeyes locked down their best start in school history.
But in the middle of Saturday night’s showdown against Minnesota, it got too loud. At least it did for one Iowa City resident. They actually called the cops on Kinnick Stadium saying that “the stadium is too loud and they wanted to talk to an officer about it.”
Here’s the official copy of the complaint filed:
If the complaint was filed at 9:18 p.m., it’s hard to say what would’ve pushed Kinnick to such high decibels. Could it have been C.J. Beathard’s naked bootleg touchdown run? The stadium appeared to be loudest when LeShun Daniels broke free for the 51-yard score to put the game on ice. But that wouldn’t match up with the timeline.
Whatever set it off shouldn’t matter. The residence that the complaint came from was 1.4 miles away from the stadium…in a college town…on a Saturday night. If this complaint was serious, the dispatch probably laughed them off the phone.
Certainly the complainer did not bank on the Hawkeyes still being 10-0 by late November. None of us did.
