The decision was likely made since Iowa is ranked and Iowa State, uh…used to be ranked before needing three OT’s to beat an FCS team and then taking a week off (because even the pros get two weeks to prepare for the Super Bowl)
12 years man...
That's rough to realize.
He wears...shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather?
You know, I just realized something.
When Ferentz decides to finally end his sideline gum-chewing days, I might have a mid-life crisis. I was a freshman at Iowa when Ferentz had his inaugural season at the helm, in all of it's 1-10 glory. Although I hate to admit it, Ferentz has been sort of a constant in my adult life; basketball coaches and wives have come and gone, but Kirk has just 'been there'.
When he leaves, and a new era of Hawkeye coaching is ushered in... I don't know. I don't know how to explain what I know I'll be feeling at that time. I do know this, though: whether the next step after Ferentz is upward and out of 8-4 "mediocrity", or into less familiar doldrums of "obscurity", I look back on the decade plus of his tenure and my life with nostalgia and good memories.
Note: I don't think that this necessarily applies 100% to the article, but I wanted to get it out.
I've just noticed that it never works with images from imgur. The internet is a fickle mistress.
Hey y'all. Somebody gotta problem?
