Honoring A Legend

The atrium in Iowa's football complex contains trophies, banners and other items recognizing Hawkeyes history.

One of the more prominent displays honors former Hawkeyes coach Hayden Fry, who led the program from 1979-98. Fry guided the team to three Big Ten championships and 14 bowl appearances.

The display includes a bust of Fry and several pictures showing his career at the school. Next to the Fry display is a picture of "The Swarm," a tradition Fry started that calls for players to take the field together, holding hands and led by their captains in a show of solidarity.

The Fry display is located near the entrance to the atrium, and players see it on their way to the weight room. -- Adam Rittenberg
