I despise the "work" that these people claim to do. Claim legitimate criticism is "trolling" so you can ignore it. Rinse and repeat. They can all fuck themselves. They don't deserve to wash their balls with Kirk's dirty bathwater.
Their reporting is so lazy. Granted, even in good/normal times they just provide a minimal prism for press releases, but just taking allegations from former players at face value isn't reporting.

I can’t imagine the type of person that pays for Howe or Harty’s site.

If you’re that hard up for Hawkeye content why would you not put that money towards 247 or the Athletic?

Didn't Camel tell the story here about what actually led to the trash can story was DJK fucking around and dribbling a soccer ball while Kirk was trying to talk to team?

I had to stop reading about 3/4 of the way through that DJK tell all. My buddy was on the team with him for 3 years. The stories he would tell of DJK just fucking around at practice were kinda funny.

Kirk was giving an after practice speech to the whole team. The specialist had brought out a soccer ball to work with. DJK sees this, walks over to it and starts dribbling it around before just kicking it as hard as he can and celebrating like he just scored a goal. I believe that is what resulted in the trash can incident.

Another one he came into his workout the day after his 21st birthday. Walks in hungover and late as shit. Doyle rips into him and DJK tells Doyle he ‘shouldn’t have to fucking workout after his 21st birthday’ and Doyle proceeds to put him through a brutal workout.
Found it. Earlier in this thread even.

Oh good. Pat’s on board!!!


Kirk Ferentz still considers Doyle a close friend, so it had to be rough for Ferentz to sever ties so quickly, and under such horrible circumstances.

But it came down to a matter of survival, and Kirk Ferentz had to help himself, and his son, Iowa offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz, first and foremost, and that’s understandable.

Not once have I thought during this evolving story that Kirk Ferentz deserved to be fired, and the same with Brian Ferentz.

In fact, I don’t recall anybody in the media saying either Ferentz should be fired.

There weren’t nearly as many accusations against Brian Ferentz compared to Doyle, and that made a difference while enforcing discipline.

Iowa helped its cause, and Kirk Ferentz’s cause, by acting quickly and decisively with Doyle.

And when it helps Kirk Ferentz’s cause, it also helps Brian Ferentz’s cause.

That isn’t meant as criticism. It’s just a fact.
Still the same Pat, getting his digs in.

What is the alternative to “acting quickly” on Doyle? I would like Pat to walk me through his line of thinking as to why any entity should take this alternative.
