An end in sight: Iowa college moves to ban naked soccer. (Update).

Never mind the tradition, it's the logistics that boggle the mind. Luther College in Iowa has taken steps to clothe a chapter in the school's history: the annual naked soccer match among seniors. Since 1997, the end-of-year nighttime event on the lawn of the campus library has drawn ever-larger--and ever-rowdier-crowds. This year, however, the school wants to put a stop to the games, fearing for the safety of students, and to discourage the middle-aged, beer-drinking gawkers who have added the event to their social calendar.

Luther College president Richard Torgerson has said that if the game takes place this year, he will ask campus police to videotape it to identify the perpetrators. Maybe their punishment should be making them watch the tape.
