Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz greeted the media Tuesday with a demeanor that probably would match that of most of his peers this time of year – pleased with the progress that the 2005 Iowa Hawkeyes made this spring, but left with the somewhat empty feeling of wanting for more.
Ferentz touched on a lot of topics during his visit…the number of days of practice allowed by current NCAA rules — “15 is pretty good, just about right” — his defensive line, “tight end by committee”, and the competition at the punting position.
He also talked about how good it is to have two capable quarterbacks, three guys that could play center if called upon and the depth chart in the Big Ten.
And, finally, he talked about expectations and said flatly that, while it’s nice to be considered among the nation’s elite, Iowa’s program at this moment in time simply isn’t at that level.
