Anyone who has watched the Iowa Hawkeyes football offense the last few years knows that it has been absolutely dreadful. The unit, led by longtime head coach Kirk Ferentz’s son Brian Ferentz, is so bad it’s funny. Let’s look at some great highlights from last season.

Out 131 teams last year, Brian Ferentz’s unit ranked a remarkable 130th in total offense, with just 251 yards per game. Five teams averaged that in a half last season. But, Kirk Ferentz did what Kirk Ferentz does, and that’s nepotism. Any other program in America would have fired their offensive coordinator, but not Kirk Ferentz and Iowa, much to the chagrin of Hawkeye fans and to the laughter of everyone else. Though, his revised contract this year is heavily based on incentives, with 25 points per game being the total needed for Brain Ferentz to get the full value of his deal.

Brian Ferentz was available to the press on Thursday for an annual spring football press availability, and his comments did not inspire confidence from Hawkeyes fans.

And, Iowa fans are not happy with the comments. Why would they be? He basically plans to change nothing from a putrid offense.

The Iowa offense should be better solely based on the fact that they have replaced the terrible Spencer Petras with Michigan transfer Cade McNamara. McNamara is no superstar, but he was a steady hand who helped Michigan win the Big Ten and reach the College Football Playoff in 2021. But, I’m sure Brian Ferentz will ruin it.
