    I really thought Iowa would be eating corn in the zoom meeting, pleasantly surprised. Nebraska spot on.

    So this quickly got overturned. Looks like if a game even happens it’ll be in an empty stadium. A lot of Duck fans want the series flipped meaning they go to Columbus this year and Eugene will host in ‘21. I heard OSU shot that idea down with the quickness. I don’t blame them for that decision at all.

    I’d be very cool playing a game in Eugene with no fans.

    They should move it to a neutral site like Vegas or somewhere that will allow fans. And then schedule another game in Eugene.

    Empty Autzen stadium and then having to come here in 2021 to a packed Shoe would be brutal. I’m fine with it.

    We aren’t giving up $15-20 million in ticket/concession revenue for that game in 2021 to play it before an empty Ohio Stadium this year.

    I think what needs to come out needs to come out and if the focus is on Iowa then that is fine and they need to change, which is good. Ferentz I believe is handling this right and is reaching out to all those players or at least he says he is. If it means Doyle is gone than he's gone and he needs to be. Lot of players seem to respect and support KF, but are going after Doyle.

    So the twitter handle is trying to say Kirk was happy Doyle put 13 athletes in the hospital? He was so happy he gave him an award for that? Now that’s a stretch, from what I’ve read no one has attacked Kirk yet, it’s mostly Doyle and I saw one tweet about Brian Ferentz.

    Take from it as you will but I take it as Kirk was more concerned about the adversity his coach went through than what the players went through because of his malpractice.

    It’s hard to justify the responses to the rhabdo incident. Only thing I’ll say is most of KFs former players love him. He seems to be a really good person. He has a close relationship with Doyle and bc of that it’s already caused a hit to KFs reputation. If he sticks by Doyle this time he needs to go. I don’t think there is a way to defend Doyle at all in this.

    If Ferentz goes down with the ship we might be able to get Bob Stoops to lead the program at least.

    He's an emotional dude too. It sounds like he is about to cry during that whole video. I'm sure he is fucking devastated.

    Going to be weird if it starts coming out that Brian Ferentz said some shitty things too. Can't imagine Kirk sticks around if he has to let his son go.

    Kirk Ferentz seems like a genuine grandfather type figure that didn’t know “the Iowa way” inherently and/or disproportionately affects the black players culture more so than the Iowa farm boys. Doyle seems like the asshole.

    Doyle appears racist but he’s incredible at his job, viewed by a lot of people as the best s&c guy in the country. Big loss for Iowa.

    Yeah, from what a friend that coaches at a P5 school told me a few years ago, everybody copies S&C from Iowa or OU with Iowa being more prevalent.

    Had a good friend who worked in Iowa's S&C and Wisconsin's S&C program. Has said that all of Doyle's disciples have been terrible when they move on. Also, his right hand man has been with him for 15 years and is taking over. He's black, but I guess he just let this stuff happen. I'm not trying to guess on that dynamic or make excuses for Doyle just bc his right hand man is black. Just a weird situation.

    My buddy is hoping Iowa goes after Vanderbilt's S&C coach. Apparently is an Iowa guy and is good at what he does. Iowa's a developmental program and Doyle was key in that. If they can't develop their players, they're going to start looking like Nebraska on the field.

    Yeah I have friend whose had lower level jobs S&C jobs at a several of power 5s and he swears by Doyle too. OTOH he did not think highly of the Bama guy that left, said hes more of a big personality than actually great at S&C.
