Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says it will take a collective effort for the Hawkeyes to finish the season on a positive note. The Hawks slipped to 6-4 overall after a 21-7 loss to Northwestern and will host nationally ranked Wisconsin in their home finale this weekend. Ferentz says everyone, including himself, has to improve and get better. He says they’re looking for improved results and haven’t been able to do that on a consistent basis yet.
Ferentz says there is no magic formula that will get things turned around. He says you can take a day off, scrimmage or go through other extremes. He says the bottom line is that you go to work. Ferentz says there are quick fixes, but they’re not into that and are just going to go back to work.
The Hawkeye offense has been criticized for being “predictable” but Ferentz says that is not the problem. Ferentz says good teams are usually predictable. He says they have tendencies, but are not a good team right now. Ferentz says it’s more about how you play than it is about your formations.
