My stance is based on the fact that there have been very few, perhaps no, calls for Kirk to be fired by anyone with credibility.
The University of Iowa and its supporters stand firmly in opposition to those who oppose racism.

Guessing tomorrow's press conference will be to announce 1) Doyle is the sacrificial lamb, 2) the players are rallying around the Ferentz boys, and 3) the University of Iowa is going to be a leader in stamping out racism. What a joke.

September 26, 2017 - When coaches all around the country were afraid to come out and support kneeling or even give their thoughts on kneeling. A young 37 year old coach in just his second year on the job was asked what he thought about kneeling.

“We’ve got some really bright guys on our team.” “We’ve had some really powerful discussions within our walls, really dating back to fall camp."

“I’m a guy that really likes to have those conversations, those discussions because I think it’s important. I think it’s a really important time in our country, and I think leadership and teaching young men what’s going on throughout the world is really, really important rather than just being about football.”

“I don’t have an issue with our guys taking a stance in what they believe in. “Whatever our guys do, you hope it’s unified, you hope it’s powerful.

-Matt Cambell, 2017.

- KF looks into the camera and still confirming he's can't ever recall talking about racial issues in his program during his entire 21 Iowa year tenure, never seen or have been brought up to him by players or player parents.


6/11/2020 - Iowa Football Media/Staff - Championing how great, courageous, and of course historic, the University of Iowa Football team and staff is on being the first program to have these open and tough conversations during these times......Media, while completely emotional drained and stunned but not surprised, starts working away at their new narrative, spin, and feel good KF stories.

Press conference doesnt really say Q&A. I hope there are difficult questions and that he actually answers them, including ones about Brian. Doubt it happens that way though.
More softballs will be tossed than in my slow pitch league.
