I lost faith at one point but imagine saying this in 2014...that in 2010 you wanted Kirk to be fired. Good lord.It's been 4 years I've been saying that kirk needs to go. Hope it's not another 4 years before he's gone. Don't think I want Barta to be the one to hire someone, but honestly most ANYBODY would likely do better with game management. I think a lot of coaches would love to come back to IC.
8-0 Iowa plays in Indy, then playoff had they won. So, don’t think you can really say this.It's weird on the timing of how we always seem to hit (from a fan perspective) rock bottom about every six years - 2008 Pitt game when they went with Christian leads to 2009. 2014 ISU debacle and whole season leads to Beathard 2015. 2020 we had the race stuff and started 0-2 with Petras digging a hole he's still not completely out of and have proceed to win 12 (should be 14 straight but for pussy Covid cancellations).
get real dude
you know KF isn't getting fired. maybe if we get our asses handed to us by ndsu in '16 then we can start talking about the possibility.
Dougie was RATT for real in this thread and a whole bunch of you were a mini-version of Tom Brady Career Over with the hot takes.Lol at this thread. Ferentz isn't going anywhere until he decides to retire. Period. He is pretty much Hayden Fry as far as figurehead of the program goes. Stop these silly fucking threads.
I was also fucking WATT. Sheesh.I really do think that Iowa has seen their best days for Football. We have been pretty lucky to have Hayden and Ferentz for the past 35 years. With the population shift and demographics changes to the South, increased competition in the Midwest through SEC expansion and influence along with the rise of Wisconsin and Michigan State within the Big Ten, I can see Iowa pulling back the reigns or simply being satisfied with being competitive every once in a while. That is pretty much what we have right now.
They have built and upgraded the facilities to last the next 20+ years at a minimum. Kinnick is pretty much set for decades. I can see them not wanting to further enter the arms race beyond what they already have. With the new influx of TV money that is about to happen, I can see Iowa becoming even more comfortable than they already are.
You are NEVER going to be able to recruit well at Iowa outside once every decade or so you get a stellar class. Look at Wisconsin and even Michigan State. They have had unprecedented success and both are still barely moving the needle when it comes to recruiting, and they are situated in much better recruiting areas than Iowa. The only hope is to have a developer of talent and hope you catch fire every few years.
Oh brotherHe isn't able to bring any quality players in anymore either...there are zero playmakers on the team
Best Howler post of all timeLet this sink in: Davis makes you want KOK
Worst howler post of all timeI Want Lou Holtzs balls over KF right now
They fixed that problem for ya CJWatching KF's post game press conference now, god damn what a fucking pompous asswipe.
And the fucking reporters continue to lob him fucking softballs. Who is their responsibility to? KF and the program? Or their readers? It's almost as if their checks are being signed by the athletic department....
GLCNN!It's an unwatchable product. KF is a stubborn dumbfuck. He needs to go.
YikesWe are all in agreement that Greg Davis isn't the problem, right?
I've got great news for yaToday will mark the beginning of the end for KF. They are not a good football and are unwatchable. I respect the job he has done but it's over.
Fuck youThis is why Ferentz will be here as long as he wants. The low expectations of a significant chunk of the fan base.
Good pointGreg Davis sucked as an OC with top talent. Not sure wtf made captain conservative think he was going to do anything other than suck a sack of cocks with our 2 stars.
@YugoslavianMountainHoundI would suck a penus for a bag man.
HaKF gives out apples and toothbrushes at Halloween.
I would suck a penus for Brett Bielema.
I'd let you
Kirk has been a dumbfuck a LOT during his tenure. There's no reason to apologize for it, just because he's having a good season.I fully admit to being on the “Fire Kirk, hire Bert,” train.
Rick should higher on that list (like #1). He was a prick as a coach (and was despised by about every player), sucked at recruiting because he was a prick, and was a wife beater to boot.Top 10 worst Ferentz hires?
2. Chris White
3. Bobby Kennedy (a package deal with GDGD)
4. Eric Johnson
5. Rick Kaczenski
6. Pat Flaherty (only around first year)
Might start to get alittle controversial after that.
Sort of agree, but the 2009 and 2010 dls were excellent though. I'm tempted to put Chris White #1 because he sucked, it was a mistake not to hire an African-American coach for that position (the staff only had one from 13-15). None of hte players respected White. His recruiting sucked ... almost none panned out, and it turned out a lot of those guys were the same ones raising the race stuff last summer (Joly, Harris)Rick should higher on that list (like #1). He was a prick as a coach (and was despised by about every player), sucked at recruiting because he was a prick, and was a wife beater to boot.
He decimated a position that is critical to any defense and especially for Norm Parker's system.
I didn’t say I was sorry. Iowa could have and likely should have canned Kirk in 2014. They didn’t and it worked out.Kirk has been a dumbfuck a LOT during his tenure. There's no reason to apologize for it, just because he's having a good season.
I'll always remember him for making this mouth breathing faggot our recruiting coordinator:
Kirk has evolved. We've all evolved. Thinking that Kirk wouldn't was a completely rational thought.
I had moved back from Texas a few years prior to the hire; had quite a few friends that were UT fans.I hold no ill will to anyone who harboured negative thoughts during the GDGD era- those were some recent dark days of Hawkeye football my friends.
