    Mangino vs. Ferentz?

    I know it's hard, but taking off the Iowa hate blinders, who would you rather have coaching ISU? Ferentz, or Mangino?

    Re: Mangino vs. Ferentz?

    Does this come with legal trouble or not SH?

    Also, do we have to pay to feed either candidate?

    Re: Mangino vs. Ferentz?

    I thought this was going to be a thread of who has done more to dirty a program.

    I'd say Ferentz, just because I know he won't eat me.

    Re: Mangino vs. Ferentz?

    I'll abstain from voting as a biased party, but here are a few things to keep in mind:

    - Mangino has 33 wins in the last 4 years; Ferentz has 28 in the same time-span.
    - When Mangino took over at KU, they had the worst talent and worst facilities in the conference.
    - Mangino requires $2.3mil per year; Ferentz requires $3.3mil a year.

    edit: fixed Ferentz's salary (in my defense, when I googled "Kirk Ferentz Salary," 4.6 was the first figure I saw.)

    Wrong.

    - Ferentz has 3 top 10 finishes to Mangino's 1
    - Ferentz has 4 bowl wins to Mangino's 2

    And, I realize this thread was probably pretty stupid to create, because I doubt many people are going to vote for Ferentz, simply for the fact he's Iowa's coach.

    Re: Mangino vs. Ferentz?

    I'm leaning towards Mangino...would they bring their same assistants? If so, then a definitive Mangino.

    Re: Mangino vs. Ferentz?

    You might as well ask if we'd rather have Jim Walden or a bag of gummy bears coaching our team. I would take Ferentz, but not at his salary. Mangino had a very good QB turn around his program when he was 1 year away from getting fired.

    I do appreciate the effort of you bringing up actual sports topics, unlike many threads we will be seeing soon in the dog days of spring/summer.

    Re: Mangino vs. Ferentz?

    At ISU I would take Mangino since he resurrected a program from the cellar.

    At a more prominent program it would be about even, but I wouldn't be crazy about either.

    Seriously? Look at Kansas' and Iowa's programs before those coaches, and Mangino has the edge for doing more with less, easily.

    Kansas has a track around their field. That should say a lot.

    Paul Rhoads.

    Why even ask this question? It's not happening either way.

    As someone who does not hate the Hawks....... I would pick Mangino. I am really impressed with what he has done at KU.

    That's funny. It really is.

    Actually, that embarrassment to modern college football might be coming out in the next few years. Still, KU plays in a stadium that was originally built almost 90 years ago. Pathetic.

    Re: Mangino vs. Ferentz?

    I'm going w/Mangino, because Kansas was way farther in the dumps when he took over than Iowa was. Also, Mangino has won a BCS bowl. He's finished w/1 loss. Ferentz has never won an outright conference title, so I don't think he really holds a big hammer over Mangino in that respect. I would also take Ferentz over McCarney or Chizik, so its not "hate blinders". I hope 5 years from now I can say I would take Rhoads over Ferentz but only time will tell. As far now, at ISU, I would rather have Mangino over Ferentz.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
