While it makes sense, the East is going to dominate the West forever. Right now, Nebraska is going to walk into the conference title game about 7 years in a row.

Wisconsin disagrees.

Yep I agree. IMO if Iowa can get back to its level of prestige it has shown then I expect them to make a few trips to the Big Ten Champ Game. Ferentz is capable of building a winner, he just needs to get his rear in gear this year!

Iowa won't be back until the get rid of Ferentz.

Iowa won't be back until the get rid of Ferentz.

In that case, it might be a while then. Ferentz's contract is tricky to dump. If the school fires him, Ferentz is owed 75% of his annual salary until the contract expires. That is a fairly large price to pay just to get rid of him. Plus, the school would have to pay to hire a new coach. Given that, I don't see the university pursuing that option. Ferentz has demonstrated he can do great things at Iowa. But his team has struggled the past 3 seasons with a combined .500 record. That is why the pressure is on him this year to be successful.
