Hey that's mine.
You and your old balls
Repeating our 2018-2019 changes, when Day fired everyone except LJ that time too.
He’s waiting it out until Brian Ferentz is our only option as the HC
Better at firing than hiring?
50% so far. 1 great hire in Hafley and Mattison was fine, then there was Coombs
The fact that Ryan Day cleans out his defensive staff street 13-1 and 11-2 seasons goes a long way to show what the expectations are in Columbus compared to the rest of the conference. And good for them.
We were bottom 5% in pass defense in 2020, but it was a Covid year and we beat Clemson so we ignored it. No one who watched us play defense in 2021 could think this is fine.
He’s literally one season away from dying in office on this extension.
Saban would have fired his best man after 1 year of what Bill Davis showed, Urban gave him 2 years then quit. Urban's ruthlessness was exaggerated
We’re two national championships away from Michigan fans crediting Ryan Day’s lack of a father for his coaching ruthlessness.
Hopefully we never get to that point.
Brian Ferentz was accused in some of the racial issues and Kirk doesn’t want to fire his son. Kirks nepotism is causing this and he deserves it honestly. Don’t fucking hire your shitty ass son to be a coach.
What an awful job done by him and Barta should’ve resigned a long ass time ago.
What percentage of Iowans care about racism or diversity outside of the actual players and black students? Like maybe 2%?
I’m sure as much as Nebraska. Two very similar states when it comes to diversity I would think. Not a shot at Nebraska just trying to compare it somewhere.
Des Moines is fairly diverse compared to the rest of the state, but it’s still noticeably white. My wife is a POC and the whiteness of Iowa is pretty easy to notice for us.
The place where I work we notice it also. My old boss was the only POC in a managerial position. Iowas trending right too so it’s not like it’s going to get better either. Iowa city is really progressive though, but your average college football fan doesn’t lean that way and sides with Kirk more. I think that would be like most places.
Another side to this story though. Lomax is a very respected former player and had a large voice in the last couple years when this started to really come out.
Feels like I’m defending Iowa, but not really trying to do that. I really dislike this state and would move if I didn’t like my job as much as I do.
Really think KF should just be done. Would love to see Levar Woods take over as HC.
Wtf? Fuck did we do?
Jfc. Edit: covered
#Michigan State Spartans what's with Burton leaving? Mutual decision? Firing? Curious, from an outside observer, your DL has been very solid under him.
Lots of rumors going around doesn’t seem like there is a ton out there though really reliable, other than this has been talked about for a couple months.
Weird given he was recruiting yesterday.
Overall seems more of a mutual decision with a lean towards being let go as he isn’t a top shelf recruiter that Tucker is looking for from the staff.
Interesting timing given the coaching carousel has been pretty much done. Prevailing thought is they really like Kevin Vickerson and want him on the staff or really found a few guys like they and the interest is mutual during the search for Jordan.
Ferentz realizes that doing something stupid like disbanding the group is going to bring even more heat on him right? That type of action usually ends poorly
Wasnt the group set up to work on the culture? I would disband it too if some dude on it just tried to get me fired and didnt use culture as the reason as well
I'm no ferentz fan, but this is right on point. They are apparently going to restructure it.
Good luck with that
Re: ferentz, just another example of a football coach that's just a massive dumbass and has no ability to understand how his actions come off. It's every coach since the beginning of sport. Egomaniacs with outsized power and influence relative to their actual intelligence.
These clowns can't even understand a running clock, let alone sensitive racial issues.
The kind of heat that gets him a contract extension through 2030? He doesn't feel any of this, and hasn't for the last decade any time there's been a problem.
In Ferentz's defense, disbanding the diversity group probably isn't even one of his top 10 worst punting decisions.
Let me stop you right there
What’s your job that makes it worth staying so much? If you dislike a place and culture so much must be a helluva job to stick around.
Speaking of bad punting decisions, do we remember when Paul Chryst tried to punt on 4th and 1 down 10 with under 4 to go this year? It comes across my mind every couple weeks and always gets a chuckle.
Minnesota is totally winning the Big Ten West in 2022. The rest of the division is in shambles.
Until they get off their row boat and onto a speed boat they are dead in the water.
I dunno...Tanner is back for year 8 and they also return Winfield Jr, Maroney, Barber III, Bateman, Decker, Mecklenburg, Nagurski, Utecht, etc. They'll be pretty good
Everyone who OSU was waiting on early entry NFL is back.
On offense, we lose WR Garrett Wilson and LT Petit-Frere early. We lose WR Olave, LG Munford and TE Ruckert as well.
The WR replacements are set, and what we had against Utah in the Rose Bowl. Paris Johnson moves from starting RG to LT. The two new guards will be Matt Jones, Donovan Jackson or Harry Miller. TE is anyones guess.
The offense is going to be elite.
Defense has DE Tyreke Smith, DT Garrett, and S Williamson leaving. Everyone else is back, including S Josh Proctor, who was a starter but broke his leg.
The entire defense gets an overhaul on staff, but experience among players won’t be an issue.
Kicker and punter both are back.
Who has a speed boat in the West to catch them?
Iowa? Wisconsin? Nebraska?
We have a speed boat but our Captain (QB) is Illinois level bad.
It's a barge. Always has been.
Yeah but that barge is loaded with the world’s best corn and you know it.
And literally nobody outside Nebraska or Iowa cares about that shit.
It’s a barge loaded with Tight Ends, and nothing else.
Uh, you should all that high fructose corn syrup that goes into your little Johnny’s sweets and all that Pop he drinks, yeah that’s from us.
Hey, some lineman on it too. Our Dbs are solid too.
Lots of interceptions too. They’re pretty useless with all the tight ends, though.
Linemen who were once recruited as Tight Ends, but grew out of the position.
I read maroney, barber 3 as “Marion barber 3” and was like “I don’t understand Covid rules at all if that dude is back in college”
