IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Gary Dolphin, "The Voice of the Hawkeyes", will be off the mic for the remainder of the basketball season. The school and Hawkeye Sports Properties, Dolphin's employer, announced the suspension today. Channel 13 has learned the suspension is tied to comments Dolphin made during the post-game of the Hawkeyes' Tuesday night loss to the Maryland Terrapins. During the game Dolphin likened Bruno Fernando, an African-American player on the Maryland team, to 'King Kong' for his defensive effort in the game.
