If that were to happen, we'd even struggle more to get the *** MAC recruits we've been getting. Bowling Green would kick or azz. Just doesn't make any sense, recruiting-wise. Programs typically don't do that.
No crucifixion, I thinks something is up too. I think kf is gassed and I think he knows it. Amid I also have always believed his is a man of integrity and will do the right thing for the program and walk away when he believes he is no longer what is best for the program. I wouldn't be shocked if he announces retirement
Let's say that Ferentz does announce he's retiring after next season or the season after so Brian can prepare to take over the role. Does Jon actually shut down HN before he has to ban 99% of the posters?
If that plays out, Jon would be in the 99%. Hawknick would be here having conversations with himself.
Publicly announcing an intention to retire in 2 seasons would be program suicide - not even Iowa is stupid enough to go down that road.
Orchestrating a 2-year transition plan behind the scenes OTOH seems very plausible and actually not the most awful idea I've ever heard. The hotheaded, emotional side of me wants Ferentz gone yesterday...the analytical, logical side of me can see some advantages to taking 2 years to get our ducks in a row & hopefully do the transition in such a way where Ferentz's buyout doesn't become a drain on the program's finances.
I don't think so. I think this is just one massively positive hawkeye dude. I kinda like him, in that same strange way that I like tommy from Moines and ol heights and weights Herby.
