IT'S NOT PLAGIARISM IF YOU LINK TO IT: MINNESOTA ROLLS IOWA DROPPING THE HAWKEYES TO 6-3

Iowa's trophy case is just about empty. Again.

Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

MINNESOTA DOWNED IOWA, THEN JERRY KILL GOT DOWN.

THERE'S ONE MAN THAT DESERVES SOME CONGRATS.

THE WORST PERFORMANCE OF THE FERENTZ ERA. Forget Arizona State. That wasn't a late season conference game, writes Mike Hlas. He's right. This wasn't a road game in the Shoe. This was Minnesota. Vint nailed it last night, this is that game at Michigan 2012. This team is 2012 except with a cupcake schedule. Forget being relevant. Forget being ranked. Hell, forget beating a ranked team. All eras must end. Perhaps the time is now.

PWNED. That's the article title Marc Morehouse chose for his summary of yesterday's laugh-er. At least Ferentz was "livid" after the game.

TWO YEARS AGO. Kirk Ferentz reshuffled his coaching staff after a dismal 4-8 season. One of the new additions brought on to coach special teams was Chris White. He arrived to Iowa with a little bit of NFL experience coaching special teams with the Vikings. Iowa has 4-5 special teams specialists (punter, long-snapper and kickers) on scholarship on the roster. And yet they were bad yesterday. Ferentz said,

"They were bad today," Ferentz said, interrupting a question about special teams. "They just ... maybe we did ... They were bad. We just weren't any good, field position, not fielding kickoffs, etc. We thought we were gaining ground there, and we were. We hit a wall today."

THE PLAYERS TALKED ABOUT IT. As you probably imagine, there's not a lot of smiles. Brandon Scherff, Tevaun Smith and Mark Weisman talk about the loss in post one. In post two, Louis Trinca-Pasat, Jordan Lomax and Carl Davis talk about losing trophies.

MOVING ON.

MAYBE WE SHOULD WATCH VOLLEYBALL INSTEAD.
