The University of Iowa has shucked its ban on a corn-eating contest after removing gluttony from the equation.
Phillip Jones, vice-president for student services, drew many complaints after cancelling the annual contest last year. Jones says he has nothing against corn, just against the all-you-can-eat concept which he says promotes gluttony.
The contest, part of week-long celebrations leading up the annual football game against Iowa State, will be allowed this year.
But students will compete to see who can eat a single ear of corn the fastest, not who can eat the most.
