    See, I think the Marv Levy comparison should be for Ferentz. Campbell has only coached a P5 team for a very short time so he really hasn't had the opportunity to coach in many big games (Ferentz lost to McCarney's teams his first few years).

    So when it comes to "winning" must games or "big" games, Ferentz has, what? Won every instate rivalry game since Campbell has become head coach at ISU? Is that it? Tell me when Ferentz has actually coached a team to a win in a game that really matters

    In the past two weeks we all have seen that when a Ferentz-coach team had an opportunity to win a big game -- one even at home -- he just couldn't get the job done.

    He won two big ten titles, a big 10 West title and an Orange Bowl.

    He shared two B1G titles. The first one he avoided playing the National Champions in a conference game, the second one he avoided playing the other co-champion.
    The West year he didn't have to play any of the East's top 4 teams.
    Kansas and West Virginia have won an Orange Bowl +/- 2 years from Iowa's win.

    And if the clones ever were invited to and won an orange bowl it would be far and away the biggest win in school history. Matt Campbell's statue would be unveiled opening day of the next season.

    Ferentz was a great coach in the 2000s

    KF has coached more "big" games than the clones have ever been in.
    those were clearly his best years.

    What in this statement can you disagree in @TRYHARDER? There are nothing but facts laid out.

    You hurt his feelings. Hawks have fragile feelings.

    Apparently. Nothing in that post is untrue so that's got to be it.

    I just find it amusing that you feel the need to try to piss on KFs accomplishments when you don't even have a list to defend from your own team.

    I'm not bringing up the accomplishment argument. It's pointless because there is no argument to begin with. Any season that ends with an Orange bowl win is a great season for almost any team or coach. Can't imagine you wouldn't like to see an orange bowl trophy in the ISU trophy case.
