OK, ladies. Let's get started. I'm Kirk Ferentz. I'm the head coach here at Iowa. Welcome to the Iowa Ladies' Football Academy.
Today we're going to teach you about the basics of football.
We'll go through basic strategy and technique, and we'll give you a tour of the football facilities.
Helping me with today's camp are some of our assistant coaches.
To my left is wide receivers coach Erick Campbell
Good morning, ladies. You can call me Coach Soup.
Oh, he's cute.
Yes, very cute.
On my right is defensive backs coach Phil Parker.
/steps forward, waves politely
I thought he only had one leg.
They do amazing things with prosthetics these days.
And in the back, we have...
Um, ladies, say hello to Chris Doyle, our strength and conditioning coach.
OHHHH THAT'S RIGHT LADIES

TIME TO FIND OUT WHO 'ROUND HERE WANTS TO PLAY LIKE MEN

I'M JUST JOSHING HA HA
PUSHUPS ARE A TERRIBLE EXERCISE
THEY PLACE EXCESS STRESS ON THE LOWER BACK
ON YOUR FEET, LADIES
/stand up, look at each other confusingly
DO YOU WANT TO BE HERE?
I CAN'T HEAR YOU, LADIES
I SAID, DO YOU WANT TO BE HERE?

Chris, I don't think...

WHY ARE YOU ALL NUMBER 47?

SHUT UP, FERENTZ
DID YOU SEE HOW WE FINISHED GAMES LAST SEASON?
AND NOW YOU GIVE ME A MINIATURE MITCH KING AND EXPECT ME TO TURN IT INTO A DEFENSIVE TACKLE
WELL, THEN IT'S DOYLE RULES
THAT GOES FOR ALL OF YOU
WE'RE GONNA DO A HUNDRED SQUATS, THEN SOME SLED WORK, THEN A TEN-MILE RUN, THEN A SUDOKU PUZZLE
MENTAL DEXTERITY AND PROBLEM SOLVING ARE IMPORTANT SKILLS ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD AND THE FIELD OF LIFE
LET'S GO, LADIES. TIME'S A-WASTIN'.
/squat 275 pounds
I knew this was a horrible idea.
All kidding aside, The Iowa Ladies' Football Academy is scheduled for June 18 in Iowa City, with all proceeds going to our friends at University of Iowa Childrens' Hospital. It's $50 to get in, with another $300 in fundraising required. There are also additional prizes for the best fundraisers. It should be a great event for a great cause. And we're like 98% sure nobody is going to get rhabdo.
