IOWA CITY - At Kinnick Stadium Saturday, the focus wasn't just on a bowl game. Jill Gaulding was revving up her campaign to get rid of the pink visitors locker room. Two years ago, Gaulding and another faculty member left the university after protesting the locker room. Now they say the color and the reasoning behind it send a homophobic and sexist message to others. Two years ago the university ruled to keep the locker rooms, but Gaulding says the issues isn't over.

The president's office at the university tells TV-9 News it is not revisiting the issue.
