The thing I never understood is why with their pro set O that they could never produce a NFL quality QB, just NFL linebackers. You would think it would be perfect traing for next level type offenses.
I assume you meant linemen, not linebackers (even though we've turned out a few of those lately, too). I think maybe our lack of producing NFL QB's is that we go more for the Trent Dilfer-type college QB: game manager, hand the ball off and when you pass, don't screw things up. Those guys dont typically get drafted. Stanzi might, but it won't be until late in the draft.
KOK isn't a bad coach by any means. He was a spread guy before coming to Iowa. If he were allowed to cut loose again (see: 2002, and 2004 was his best performance IMO), then I think he could have a solid career as a head coach. UCONN might be a good fit for him.
I actually think iowa fans would be happy to see him leave, although you have to wonder how much of their offensive philosophy is due to Ferentz rather than the OC. Still can't believe that Edsell would leave for Maryland, though. Maybe he's sick of waiting for JoePa to retire.
IMO if UCONN ends up looking for a coach, they may be better off waiting to see if RichRod is available.
I just can't fathom why someone would hire Ken O'Keefe when Leach and Rich Rod are available. Yes, I know Rich Rod hasn't been fired, but it's only a matter of "when". If he gets an offer to get out ahead of the lynch mob, my bet is that he'll take it.
In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
