Hawkeyes won’t scalp ’em

Adhering to a policy instituted 10 years ago, but not always followed, the UI [University of Iowa] athletics department recently canceled a baseball game with Bradley University of Peoria, Ill., because of the school’s mascot.

The game was originally scheduled to be played today, but the athletics department canceled the nonconference game in February, recognizing that Bradley’s nickname – the Braves – falls under the university’s policy to not schedule nonconference games with teams that have American Indian mascots.
