    Would you hire Kirk Ferentz brother?

    There is interest from some in hiring Terry Brands, the brother of the Iowa wrestling coach. Just wondered how many would favor hiring the brother of Kirk Ferentz? (Obviously this is hypothetical as I really like Rhoads) I'm not sure Iowa State wants to get into this type of arrangement. Terry is successful as is Iowa, but somehow, hiring him would seem odd to me. Any opinions?

    Not sure KF even has a brother, but some food for thought.

    As long as the new coach would be aggressive and coach 'to win'...I wouldn't mind.

    Does he deal with off the field issues better?

    We should hire the best coach we can find, period. I don't care if he's related to a Hawkeye. That is for the media and fans to make a mess of. That sort of business doesn't need to be involved in the program and players itself.

    We as a fanbase obsess way, way too much over the Hawkeyes.

    I'd hire him to pick up dog poop in my backyard.

    I'd hire his grandmother if she could lead ISU to a BCS bowl game.

    You take the best coach we can find. It doesn't matter one bit if he has ties to the hawks. If an Iowa fan ever says anything to you about needing a hawk coach to win all you have to do is say Gable. He was a cyclone!

    I think that this would be different. Iowa took arguably the greatest wrestler ever from ISU and he turned out to be the most successful coach ever at Iowa.

    Hiring a Brands, a couple of weeks after losing another all time great ISU wrestler to the Big Ten would be a good move IMO.

    Hire whoever is the best fit and gives us the best chance to win with class.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    If Kirk Ferentz and his brother had won the last 2 national championships, yeah, I probably would. But, without that connection, the analogy doesn't really work, now does it?

    OK, taking the Squawk issues out of the thought process. You are the top high school wrestler in the nation at your weight class and you are down to choosing a coach. Why would you choose Terry over Tom? They are very similar personally and how they coach.
    National championships as a wrestler? Tom has 3 to Terry's 2
    National championships as a HC? Tom has 2 to Terry's 0
    Olympic medalist? Tom - Gold to Terry - Bronze
    Terry is second fiddle to Tom in each instance. This does not exite me. I would not mind them taking on each other on the mat. That I'm sure, would be classic.
    But back to the issue, why go to ISU with Terry over Tom?

    If he works cheaply, he should be considered. If he is expensive, we can do better.

    Only if he has the same high moral standards of his brother.
