    State Troopers/Security: Ferentz & Bielema

    Over the years I have always noticed the same Iowa state trooper acting as security for Kirk Ferentz at both home and away games. Yesterday it looked like Brett Bielema had a couple Wisconsin troopers acting as his security as well.

    Does CPR have security on the sidelines at home and away games? Is this just a Big 10 thing?

    He had someone following him around too.

    It was the dude in the Rhoads Photo thread standing behind him.

    Bobby Bowden would do it was well when he was at FSU. I saw the Chiz the other day have one. I think its just preference?

    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    You should watch Iowa state and not Iowa so you'd know :)

    Believe me, I watched ISU.

    I am thrilled for the future to see where CPR can lead the Clones!

    I think I have just noticed the trooper with Ferentz because it has been the same officer at every game for years.

    FYI, he's not a State Trooper. He's a retired Polk County sheriff's deputy.

    Re: State Troopers/Security: Ferentz & Bielema

    Do these guys get paid, or are they volunteering to get into the games?

    Actually Rhoads follows the Patrolman around to insure the Patrolman's safety, because CPR is a badass!

    More important for public safety is whether Barney has bullets in his gun or if Sheriff Griffith is holding them for him.
