Wood fires not permitted at Kinnick... but they should be

The UNIVERSITY OF IOWA prohibits wood fires in parking lots used for tailgating, and probably would have frowned upon my actions had I lit one this morning in front of SECTION 215, ROW 29, SEAT 20 in the SOUTH END ZONE, too.
I sure could have used a wood fire, though.
I froze most of CENTRAL MICHIGAN'S shock, 32-31 win over the HAWKEYES at Kinnick Stadium today.
I didn't dress in enough layers for what is euphemistically referred to as "FOOTBALL WEATHER," but what is actually wind-chill values of 37 degrees in the shade.
Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz probably wished wood fires were allowed on the field, too. He probably should have lit some under the defenders who enabled Central Michigan to score nine points in the final 45 seconds of the game, gifting the visiting Chippewas the upset victory.
Yep... Iowa might want to consider clarifying its wood fire policy after this game.
