Your Hawkeye Tax Dollars at Work

I'm sure that Iowans are pleased that they are paying the salary of Prof. Erin Buzuvis -- check this out:

Erin Buzuvis moved to Iowa from Boston in the fall and discovered the visiting team's locker room at Kinnick Stadium was pink -- something she said promotes sexism and homophobia.

But officials with the school's sports department said they won't change the pink walls, which is a long-time facet in Kinnick Stadium.

The color was introduced decades ago by former Hawkeye coach Hayden Fry to soften opponents. But recent stadium renovations added more pink items to the locker room, including lockers, sinks and urinals.

I always thought Fry's infamous locker room painnt job was hilarious, and just the type of gamesmanship that makes the competition more interesting. Some people are just too serious about meaningless rubbish. The Monk wonders whether Prof. Buzuvis can keep pets or plants because she seems to suck the life out of whatever is around her.
