Yeah, the bolded part doesn't compute for me, either. You don't get to just magically create equality between (assumption alert!) a college kid smoking weed and an actual violent crime by saying "but this was the second time!" C'mon.
Similarly. while our own implemented drug program may be softer than the NCAA (for obvious reasons), I have not seen much evidence that the UI drug program is stricter than the majority of other B1G programs. Heck, I have not even seen a link that details UI's own drug testing program for student-athletes, frequency, penalties, education, etc., let alone compare it to our peers. Where is it?
