Why Next Two Games are Vital to Legacy of Kirk Ferentz at Iowa

When Kirk Ferentz took over following the 20 year tenure of his former boss Hayden Fry, the cupboard of talent was relatively bare in Iowa City. However, just like his predecessor, Ferentz was able to raise the level of the program to conference champion or contender in just a few seasons. Fry won conference titles in his 3rd, 7th, and 12th seasons (1981, 1985, 1990). Although there...

Photo: An Iowa Fan Put His Dedication To The Program In Ink With This Kirk Ferentz Tattoo

Disgruntled Iowa fans aren’t thrilled with Hawkeyes’ head coach Kirk Ferentz. The longtime coach has won just under seven games a year since the Hawkeyes’ 11-2 2009 season, but a huge contract makes it difficult for Iowa to think about going in a different direction.

Big Ten Previews, Pt. 11: Iowa Hawkeyes

Oh, Kirk Ferentz, where do I even begin? After three years of steady regression the Hawkeyes bounced back to an 8-5 record in 2013 (and Hawkeye fans celebrated like they won the dang national title; apparently expectations are low in Iowa City), bouncing back from a 4-8 mark the year before. More importantly, Iowa survived [&hellip (Visited 100 times, 100 visits today) The post...
