    Ferentz: McCarney's 'done a great job at Iowa State'

    November 7, 2006

    Iowa City, Ia. – Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz said today he’s exchanged messages of support with embattled Iowa State coach Dan McCarney.

    Speculation concerning McCarney’s future with the Cyclones continues as Iowa State remains at the bottom of the Big 12’s North Division standings.

    Ferentz and McCarney worked together as assistant coaches at Iowa during the 1980s under former Hawkeye coach Hayden Fry.

    “We’ve exchanged messages,” Ferentz said after his weekly news conference. “As you might well imagine, I’m extremely supportive of Dan. I’d like to think I’m a friend.”

    Together, Ferentz and McCarney have helped make the annual Iowa-Iowa State football games one of the most intense rivalries in the Midwest.

    McCarney’s Cyclones have a 5-3 edge over Ferentz’s Hawkeyes.

    “What I told him, he didn’t need to hear from me,” Ferentz said. “He’s done a pretty good job from my vantage point, but that’s just one person’s opinion. I have a tremendous respect for him. Personal level is one thing, but professionally, I think he’s done a great job at Iowa State.”

    This reads like a goodbye from our fellow rival.

    If all of the talk about Mac being gone is true, it is going to be one hell of an emotional game in 2 weeks.

    He should worry about coaching his own team ... losing to Northwestern is more embarrasing then losing to KU!

    I dunno, I would say it is about even. the difference, we lost by 31, they lost by 14. I would say our loss is ALOT more embarassing!

    another difference - we were picked to lose - iowa was expected to win

    If you notice, his quote is mostly in the past tense (referring to the job Mac has done at ISU). And of course, you've got to think Ferenz would love to see Mac go so he would have a better chance of beating ISU...

    Maybe both Ferentz and McCarney can join Barry Alvarez at Miami. KF as OC, DM as DC, and BA as HC. The Hayden Fry Boys reunited...

    Anyone have any reliable info (NOT rumors) on whether Mac would take the job as D-Cord at Iowa. Thanks in advance,

    Your friend,
