New Herky bobblehead showcases Kinnick Stadium’s pink locker room By Hawk Central

There’s a new Hawkeye collectible on the market that’s sure to tickle some fans pink.

A just-released bobblehead of Herky the Hawk pays homage to one of Kinnick Stadium’s most famed features: the pink visitors’ locker room.

Perched upon a pale pink locker, Herky flexes his hawk muscles, flanked by black and gold football gear and a plate that bears his name.

It was legendary Iowa football coach Hayden Fry, before his first season in Iowa City in 1979, who ordered the walls in Kinnick’s visiting locker room to be painted pink. The color was added to toilets, lockers and pretty much everything else during a 2005 renovation.
