The Drive: June 12th, 5pm – Iowa Press Conference

  • Iowa Hawkeyes head coach Kirk Ferentz held a press conference earlier today with some of his players to discuss some of the accusations against the program, here are some of the sound bites from that

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-What’s the strangest thing you ever encountered on a recruiting visit to a player’s home?

-The XFL already canceled the league again with no plans to return…can a professional football league outside of the NFL ever really make it?

-Nebraska announces they’ll do a virtual spring game on Saturday with players from the past…any interest in that?

Nebrasketball AND Nebraska football both have a chance to stick it to Iowa by taking someone they care for from the state…will it happen?

-Ohio State’s DJ Carton announced he will transfer from the Buckeyes, and since he’s from Bettendorf, Iowa (not far from Iowa City), Hawkeyes fans think they are the natural spot for him to go to

-Nebrasketball is in on him per college hoops sources…what if Matt Abdelmassih stole him away and got him to Lincoln? It’s certainly possible…

-Which then brings us to Thomas Fidone…could Nebraska do to Iowa what Iowa did to Nebraska in getting Noah Fant to leave the state and go have success at a rival? It could be a change of the tide!

6:25 – The Iowa funny man is back at it again with his mockery of Nebraska in the ‘rivalry’ with Iowa

-Andy Fales, of WHO-TV in Des Moines, has been known for his jabs at Nebraska over the past few years, and with 4 straight wins by the Hawkeyes in the series, it’s hard to say much as a Husker fan in fighting back—other than living in the past with 5 national championships. Was he totally off-base this time, though? Doesn’t seem like, unfortunately…
