    I still see Iowa going to a bowl. They will get to 6 wins and get to the alamo again, it will be disgusting.

    Why worry about Iowa so much? We have enough problems of our own.

    Re: FireKirkFerentz.com

    There we go:

    I don't think Kirk's job has ever been in doubt. Even after the Illinois win. However, the assistants aren't safe, due to the fact that play calling has been suspect ever since 2004, and teams are starting to call Iowa's plays at the line of scrimmage at the beginning of the season, which is pathetic.

    Any Iowa fan should want Kirk to stay - KOK not so much. Norm may buy himself some more time, since his defense is rated one of the tops in the BigTen right now, and is typically pretty good.

    If Kirk Ferentz isn't on the hot seat, I can't imagine any Hawk fan would be happy with the offensive output at Saturday's game. Yes, the game was won, and over a top 25 team, but it was 10-6, and it was also because Iowa's defense was perfect for stopping Illinois' offense.

    Right, which is why IMO, KOK is definitely on the hot seat, and I would like to hope that Barta pressures for him to be out the door at the end of the season.

    Ferentz has been responsible for several trick plays (few options, hook and ladder, going for it on 4th down), so while KF may be relatively conservative, I think the main reason the offense is that conservative is the OC.

    Kirk will be back on the hot seat after the next loss. That's just the way it goes for coaches.

    I have serious reservations about Iowa becoming bowl eligible and if they do, I do not think the Alamo Bowl is in the cards this year. I think Iowa needs to get to 7 wins to be assured of a bowl game. The Alamo Bowl picks fourth this year while the Champs Sports is the 5th pick. I do not see a second Big Ten team getting a BCS bowl this year either. If that happens:

    BCS - Ohio State
    Cap One - Michigan
    Outback - Penn State/Illini/Wisconsin
    Alamo - Penn State/Illini/Wisconsin
    Champs - Penn State/Illini/Wisconsin
    Insight - Indiana/Purdue/Michigan State/Iowa (if they somehow got 7 wins)
    Motor City - Indiana/Purdue/Michigan State/Iowa (if they somehow got 7 wins)
