You probably saw the story over the weekend that Iowa's long time strength Coach resigned after reports of Player mistreatment and particularly statements from former Players that much of it appeared to be racially directed. On the one hand, Ferentz is currently the longest tenured Coach at one School (23 or 24 Years). Iowa also has a very Loyal Fan Base. And Ferentz has been highly successful. On the other hand, with the racial divide in this Country, and attitude, anyone who is perceived to be in the same Zip Code as a Racially Motivated Incident is guilty by Association. The Head Coach of a football team can't be everywhere and know everything, but his name is on the Door and the Buck has to stop there. Earlier this week, the Iowa AD gave him the dreaded Vote of Confidence (aka "Kiss of Death). If Iowa has a down year, it will be interesting to see how long a Leash the Administration gives him. Age wise, he is approaching his mid 60's. Combine the incidents with a Down Season, and you begin to hear the whispers that he is too old and set in his ways to deal with Today's Athletes.
