Iowa Vs. Penn State: Where's The Party In Iowa City?

SB Nation's Black Heart Gold Pants discusses the recent kerfluffle over tailgating in Iowa City:

We heard the outrage following the initial efforts from University of Iowa Public Safety to enforce the new tailgating laws prior to Iowa's home opener with Eastern Illinois.  Local law enforcement gave out more than 100 citations for open container violations (including one to a 61-year-old man).  There were numerous complaints here and elsewhere about police stepping far beyond their bounds in enforcement of regulations that hadn't been enforced in decades.  Afterwards, countless fans complained to athletic director Gary Barta.  This weekend, we learned what Barta did in response.
