Open letter from Iowa AD Gary Barta

This open letter aimed towards all Hawkeye football fans was sent to all Iowa season ticket holders from Athletic Director Gary Barta:

Dear Friend:

Last Saturday’s exciting victory over Penn State was a fantastic achievement by our football team. It was evidence of the rewards that come hand-in-hand with hard work and determination. I’m so proud of our student-athletes and coaches.

As always, our fans and the magic of Kinnick Stadium played a significant role in the victory. Thanks to every Hawkeye who joined us in Iowa City for this historic win.

Unfortunately, the celebration that took place on the playing field after the game became uncontrollable and very dangerous. Sadly, some of our fans were injured. I also know there were several coaches and student-athletes from both teams as well as game officials who were deeply concerned for their safety.

As we look ahead to this week’s Senior Day game against Purdue and future games inside Kinnick, I ask that fans of the Hawkeyes temper their enthusiasm with a dose of common sense. I know the temptation of the moment can be great, but safety has to be our highest priority.

In addition to injuries, I’m aware there were several arrests made throughout the game including some on the field post game. It certainly is never our desire to have fans experience this level of consequence, but, again, creating a wonderful, family friendly, and safe college football experience is our goal.

Thank you for assisting us in this effort in the future.

Go Hawks – Beat Purdue!

Gary Barta
Director of Athletics
