Mike DiNovo-US PRESSWIRE
One thing is for certain, losing sucks.
FUCK. Hawkeye head football coach Kirk Ferentz let an "F" bomb fly at his weekly press conference yesterday. The slip occurred during the "on the side" portion of his weekly meeting with the media.

Ferentz was asked about the Iowa City Press Citizen's report on Academic Advisor Peter Gray's dismissal. The question, from AP writer Luke Meredith, began with an "it's out there" opener. Ferentz, asking for specifics, let the "fuck" fly and then immediately apologized.
THERE WAS REAL NEWS IN THE PRESS CONFERENCE. (Here's the transcript). Iowa may again be without Mark Weisman and Brad Rogers. Weisman is "day to day" according to Ferentz. Brad Rogers may be able to play special teams. For more news and notes, I'll summarize bullet style:
- Iowa has to be ready for both Michigan quarterbacks
- Ferentz would have liked a "few more yards" before trying a field goal last week against Purdue
- Ferentz gave a long version of the old "one game at a time"
- Ferentz isn't letting injuries be an excuse
- Conor Boffeli is their best choice at guard, right now
- Joe Gaglione is getting better (he had the flu or something)
- Ferentz mentioned execution and even added "I know this gets old for everybody"
- Ferentz talked about his philosophy and the change in college football offenses
