I assume this culminates with an article on the Top 20 KF Contract Provisions?

For my money, the best is paragraph XXIV.C.7.d.ii, “At the request of, and in the sole discretion of, Coach, but in no more than two (2) instances in any twelve (12) month period, the Athletic Director shall dress up in the manner of a show horse and be ridden by Coach.”

Oh man, I can't wait until this series finishes up with the Jacobi interview of KF as they ride horses around KF's estate.  

I never wanted to Fire Ferentz. Good bye and good luck, Gary.

How will Jacobi get there?  I hear there's no paved roads that lead to it.

I strongly prefer winning over losing.

He’ll ride Vint there.  DUH!

After spending years being bullied by the big ten, I decided to become the bully and go after Iowa basketball players. I also have no concept of what is real and what is fantasy, as demonstrated by my belief that I could coach.

I agree that the kind with little flakes of Vanilla Bean in it is probably too exotic.

Not to mention French Vanilla.

Too Europy...(also wasn't there a Marchifornication that featured a beret-wearing Kirk)?  So maybe French Vanilla would be okay then.

5 seems too low for Drew Tate's efforts.  Maybe a 12/8 split.

The top 50 times the opposing defense called the play before it was run. Oh, wait, it’s only the top 20?  

I forsee a lot of zone reads.

I definitely want to see top 20 most maddening losses.  Been wanting to see this since the top 25 best wins list on the predecessor site in 2012.  CMU 2012 ought to be #1.  Iowa was going to escape with a shameful W, only to have Joe Gaglione choke a dude for a PI to put them in field goal range with seconds left.

I also would love to see top 20 biggest Hawkslayers.  James Hardy #1, Seneca Wallace #2, Dan Persa #3.

I want to believe that this top 20 would be cathartic, but there's no way. I still want to see this. The comments section would be a glorious dumpster fire

If we really want a commentariat shit show, I would love to see a list of the top 20 most polarizing events in the Ferentz era. Examples include:

  • Adam Shada being booed on senior day 
  • Starting JC6 over Ameristanzi through the first third of the 2008 season
  • Starting Rudock over Beathard in 2014
  • Brad Banks stepping out of bounds short of the first down against Michigan in 2001 as evidence he didn't deserve to start over McCann that year
  • Playing for OT at the end of the 2009 Iowa/tOSU game as opposed to playing for the FG/win
