Iowa Hawkeyes season preview

Iowa appears to be on the road to success with 16th year head coach Kirk Ferentz, but the Hawkeyes have failed to top the Big Ten Conference for 10 consecutive years.

Iowa football, Ferentz achieve redemption

Eight. That is the number of wins the Iowa Hawkeyes (8-4, 5-3 Big Ten) finished their surprising 2013 season with after a convincing 38-17 road victory over Big Ten Legends foe Nebraska (8-4, 5-3) on Nov. 29. Coming into this season many thought (including myself) that the Hawkeyes were doomed for a five or six win season at best. On paper, Iowa didn’t resemble a team that would...

Iowa and Kirk Ferentz need a change

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.

Shots Fired: Ferentz Among Five Worst

Stewart Mandel is a columnist for Sports Illustrated’s website. Columnists write opinions for a living. Not everyone agrees with someone when they give their opinion. As it relates to Stewart Mandel’s current opinion on Kirk Ferentz, I don’t agree with it. I am also reminded of the old saying that I can pick on my brother but if you lay a finger on him, I’m coming for...

Ferentz Committing Hawkeyes to No-Huddle?

Is Kirk Ferentz really going to allow his team to use a lot of the no-huddle this coming season? REALLY? When Iowa rolled out the no-huddle for the entire final spring practice, I was as surprised as anyone. Some will rip Kirk Ferentz for being to conservative or predictable and there are times where I have shared at least some of those opinions, if only partly. But to go from...
