That's right, Chris Steinbach, of the Muscatine Journal, writes that "All good things come to an end." Chris asks "Fire Ferentz?" I say asks because he used the ever useful question mark. Chris also uses hard hitting supporting arguments like "And no one should be willing to accept a 5-7 record when Coach Kirk Ferentz is paid $3.5 million annually." He did include his belief that "Ferentz seems like a good guy and he has been a good coach" but concludes again with the salary argument. I'm not a regular reader of the Muscatine Journal but hard hitting stuff like this from Chris Steinbach might just earn them a bookmark.

Marc Morehouse, of the Cedar Rapids Gazette, has the breakdown from Kirk Ferentz's weekly call-in show from Carlos O'Kelly's. Sounds like we'll see freshman running back Mi'Kail McCall this week. Also, wide receiver Keenan Davis should be back in action after suffering an ankle sprain against Indiana.

Raise your hand if you were surprised to see Iowa was only a four point underdog in Saturday's match-up with Michigan. Ryan Suchomel, of Hawk Central, was too, in fact he wrote about it.
