    Re: Ferentz

    Ferentz at U of I is a good thing for ISU. They will come to Ames next year with a new qb in his 2nd game and we will have a better team next year playing at home. (exception at LB). 3 in a row for Cy. Ferentz, unlike Fry, never badmouths ISU and is not a "rabblerouser" who stirs up his fanbase or evidently his players. Laidback. CPR is winning the in-state recruiting battle. Any talk from a Cyclone fan that between the lines is hopeful that Iowa replaces KF may get what he is wishing for.....a younger coach with a fire in his belly at IC and that would not be a good thing for Cy.

He thought they would KILL NIU and that ISU would not have a chance at Kinnick. His attitude has soured a bit and all of a sudden he is sick of KF and his conservative coaching.
    The exodus of the bandwagon fans has started just as I thought. They will find other things to do on Sat, and if ISU starts having really good seasons then they will claim to be a Clone fan......like clockwork.

    ISU will have a better team next year? I highly doubt that. They may still beat Iowa as a first time QB going into Ames isn't a recipe for success but there are a ton of important seniors on both sides of the ball.

    Folks that believe KF could go to any NFL team are dreaming. He has been out of the NFL loop for 15+ years and the game has changed. No use being as delusional as hawks fans as it just would not happen. I chuckle when I hear these assumptions.

    05 - 7-5
    06 - 6-7
    07 - 6-6
    08 - 9-4
    09 - 11-2 (only played 2 top 25 teams in the regular season)
    10 - 8-5
    11 - 7-5
    12 - 1-1 and not looking good.

    .
    With that kind of ongoing record it would be great if he stayed for a long, long, long time. Unfortunately, I firmly believe he'll be in KC next year after they fire/demote the interum coach Romeo....the stars are lining up too much for this one not to happen.

    Please stay forever Kirk!

    At the risk of a hijack...I thought I read something somewhere that ISU returns 8 starters (4 on each side of the ball) next season. Assuming that data is correct, how does that support your assertion in bold?

    Then again, if I'm all wet and you return 17 starters, I would agree 100%.

    We are no longer in rebuild mode in Ames. Reloading has taken its' place.

    Are you on crack? Seriously...

    *Dang, if only we had an INSTATE RIVALS forum for this kind of garbage!

    Coach 'Walking Dead' Kurt Ferents is very good for Iowa State. Hope he sticks around quite a while longer.
    Still think Iowa goes 3-9 this year, though.

    Re: Ferentz

    Even if Ferentz was on the hot seat this year, his buyout number would be ridiculous - around 15 to 20 million IIRC. He's not going anywhere for at least a few seasons unless he decides to walk away (plausible if the bottom falls out on the program, but unlikely).
    And the assistant coaches will likely get at least one more season after this one to implement their systems.

    I've never got where the school of thought that KF would be a good NFL head coach comes from. Yes, he's part of the Belichick school of coaching but he really has none of the main attributes you would look for in an NFL coach. The things KF is best at, developing unheralded recruits into NFL draft picks over the course of five years, coaching his team up Sunday-Friday, really don't have much of a place in the win now NFL.

    He's never been a great game coach, opposing coaches always mention how easy Iowa is to prepare for, he's not good adapting his coaching strategy to keep up the with the changes in the game, something Belichick is great at. He's had a hard time getting along with loud, outspoken players, something he would have to deal with for sure in the NFL. Outside of the Iowa fanbase he's mainly known for just being an overpaid coach. I think if he did ever get an NFL job he would be fired within 3 years.

    You watch though. He'll down a *down* year this year, and then some stories will surface about NFL teams courting him. Joe Squakeye will get concerned, KF will decide to stay in the end. Cue the singing rainbows and hallelujah chorus.

    Ferentz has the same agent Houston Nutt has, there's a reason their names are mentioned for just about every open job available.
