BACK IN BLACK & THE SWARM

During Hayden Fry’s time as head coach at Iowa, he introduced many traditions, including “The Swarm.” Led by Herky Hawkeye, the team jogs slowly onto the field through the tunnel. With the captains in front, the entire team locks hands as a symbol of strength, unity and support for each other. Today, the team entrance is accompanied by AC/DC’s “Back in Black” blaring through the sound system.
