Good article, Rob. But where were you when most of us realized the problem shortly after Brian Ferentz was hired?
I don't think there has been a member of Iowa sports media more critical of BF than Rob. That has usually been about off the field stuff, but let's at least give credit where credit is due.Good article, Rob.

As a member of Iowa’s sports media, by remaining silent you’ve been part of the problem.
Glad you’ve finally come around.
Putting together a more exciting offense wouldn’t hurt on the recruiting trails either. I would guess our reputation on this side of the ball is made we’ll known by those competing against us for certain more talented skill players.I've been saying it for years: If Iowa had a decent offense, most every year would be more like 2002. I believe that firmly.
The program has been consistently good, but the lack of offense year in and year out is the obvious glaring weakness that prevents this program from reaching "great" status.
The frustrating part, to me, is that I don't get the sense that improving the offense is even an afterthought.
Iowa hasn’t been able to get to get a 1st down all year. I don’t know where we rank in 3rd down conversions or total first downs because the season’s over and I frankly don’t give a shit anymore, but if either one of those is better than 120th I’d be surprised.It occured to me... KY had no time outs. You could run play action boot pass and get the first down and the game is over. Over. The could not stop the clock.
