Finally, a topic right in my 43-going-on-13 wheelhouse.
At a press conference ahead of Iowa’s Dec. 30 Insight Bowl matchup with Oklahoma, head coach Kirk Ferentz was “grilled” by the assembled media about some personnel issues that have been speculated on across the vast expanses of the Internet. These queries came on top of leading rusher Marcus Coker already suspended for the postseason game as well as Ferentz himself linked to other coaching jobs — again — even as he continues to deny the speculation every step of the way.
Apparently weary of the rumors, Ferentz went all in and played the ever-popular fart card on the scribes in attendance.
After deflecting a few personnel questions Monday, Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz joked that he passed gas on the practice field.
“Did you guys catch that one?” Ferentz joked. “I’ll see if I can muster one up for you right now.”
If the Iowa sports information folks don’t adopt the slogan “2012 Iowa Football: Muster One Up!” at some point before next September, well, those sports information folks might want to consider another line of work.
As for this married man and father of five? I’ll continue to revel in the fact that a Div. 1-A head coach offered to “muster one up” for the media. And LMAO as I head out to the playground for recess…
