HAWKEYES COACH GOES GUNDY AFTER PENN STATE LOSS: Kirk Ferentz wasn’t quite in the mood to meet the press:
The DES MOINES REGISTER reports how the Iowa coach lashed out after his Hawkeyes were battered by Penn State on Saturday, 27-7.
During the post-game press conference, a reporter asked Ferentz how Nittany Lion QB Anthony Morelli was able to pass for 233 yards against his defense.
Kirk then set his mouth for stun: “You were at the game, right?…I mean what are you, crazy? With all due respect, I retract that statement, but I mean, you were at the game - you’re not serious, are you?”
On the Gundy Scale(tm) of post-game press explosions, we’d rate that a 4 (points deducted for offering ‘due respect’). But if the crew from Iowa City continue their woeful ways - including a current 8-game Big Ten losing streak - Mount Ferentz may soon erupt again with a lot more force.
