    Hypo: Would Iowa State hire Ferentz?

    If we were looking today and KF was available, would we hire him? Forget the cross state rivalry,but on his merits? I say no:
    -Poor performance past three years
    -player personel problems
    -perennial interest in other jobs
    Am I wrong here?

    Yes.

    He's a proven decent head coach, and if ISU had a coaching vacancy, and KF was available, they would be foolish not to hire him.

    I am sure we would make a good line coach or something if we needed one.

    He's won more conference championships than ISU has in the last 100 years....

    You are NOT wrong. I can't even imagine that one in Ames. We took a step in the right direction with Coach Chizik.

    Re: Hypo: Would Iowa State hire Ferentz?

    I believe that if DM had just left, and a coach from another state with the identical record of KF applied, JP WOULD NOT HIRE HIM. How would that sell as an upgrade from Mac, and would any AD want to grab a guy who might be a witness in how an assault case was handled. Right now KF is damaged goods, in my view.

    Re: Hypo: Would Iowa State hire Ferentz?

    who cares how many conference championships he has won, its the big 10, intramurals brotha, He has lost to ISU time and time again, and gone 6-6 the last two years. We would hire Farley out of UNI before Ferentz

    Re: Hypo: Would Iowa State hire Ferentz?

    I think the next two years will truly define Kirk Ferentz as a college football coach. He just went through two down years and comes back next year having played 31 freshmen and 15 sophs this year. And those 46 include some of the best recruits he's ever landed at Iowa. Every program in the country goes through rough stretches like Iowa just had. A good coach can pull them out of it, which is why I think the next two years will define him.

    To answer the question, yes Iowa State would hire Ferentz.

    I can see if looking at record alone. However, if you look at acheivements, it would be a good hire.

    Look at Ole Miss and Houston Nutt. Nutt has had a few good seasons with the Razorbacks, but overall a mediocre record. Ferentz and Nutt are much the same, with Ferentz having his better years (so far in his coaching career) in 3 consecutive years.

    I don't think it would be a bad hire....

    I agree on his achievements and I think he's a good coach. My point was not to knock KF, only observe, IF an Iowa State might not consider him, would a program like Michigan? Coaching is about being "hot" or what have you done for me lately. KF is missing that star power. He had it three years ago. He was a the top of everyone's list.

    Re: Hypo: Would Iowa State hire Ferentz?

    Before this season, even with '05 and '06 not great - I would've hired KF without question.

    After this season, I'd probably still hire him but not as easy of a decision.

    Would I take him over Chizik? Probably not, but I have nothing other than bias to support that as Chizik is 3-9 as a head coach right now.

    I do remember KF's tenure starting out rather ugly...

    Re: Hypo: Would Iowa State hire Ferentz?

    I think the better question is...would he come here. And the answer is no. Why? Two reasons. First, I don't think ISU offers welfare housing for millioniare coaches sons who are on full ride scholarship. And second, the Story County jail is not part of the recruiting process.

    That wasn't the hypothetical question the poster asked.
