The Iowa Hawkeyes (5-4, 2-3 Big Ten) have had the same head coach since 1999 and while Kirk Ferentz has been an great leader, it’s time that Iowa and Ferentz had a change of scenery.
The Hawkeyes 28-9 loss at home on Saturday to no. 24 Wisconsin further validates the fact that the Hawkeyes are no longer moving in the right direction with Ferentz at the helm.
Iowa head coach talks to a referee during the Hawkeyes 28-9 loss to no. 24 Wisconsin on Saturday.
During the past five years, Iowa has gone 39-25 and 21-19 in the Big Ten – Ferentz also has an impressive 3-1 Bowl record.
The issue however, is that Ferentz is quickly becoming a coach who’s uable to adjust to college football’s new landscape.
Ferentz’s play calling is notoriously conservative and is still built around an old-fashion running back in Mark Weisman.
Iowa’s inability to field athletes capable of competing with the Big Ten’s best is a big reason why the Hawkeyes lost its third conference game of the season.
