Pat McAfee suggests Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz needs to fire his offensive coordinator son.

America needs farmers, but Iowa needs a better offensive coordinator.

The latest and greatest thing to happen to ESPN’s College GameDay is not wrong. Pat McAfee knows a thing or two about punting and being a man of the people. Although he went to West Virginia, his PMS colleague Ty Schmit has to deal with the Yankees coming up short in October again, Brett Favre stealing from Mississippi for volleyball reasons and rampant Iowa nepotism!

When it is this painfully obvious, everybody knows what needs to happen. Too bad none of us will ever get the job security of Iowa offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz because his dad is a legend.

You can only lean on your pink visitor’s locker room for so long, as this offense intimidates no one.

Pat McAfee bluntly says Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz must fire his son Brian

No head coach in the Power Five has been employed by his university longer than Ferentz has. The former Baltimore Ravens offensive line coach had the distinct pleasure of replacing the iconic Hayden Fry in Iowa City. Ferentz will one day join the late Fry in the College Football Hall of Fame. What he has done for over a quarter of a century is remarkable. Too bad his son sucks at his job…

This is Iowa football. This isn’t some rinky-dink operation, tucked away in anonymity. The Hawkeyes are one of the pillars of Big Ten football, yet they run an offense as antiquated as the typewriter. Yes, you can still use one, but nobody is going to think you’re that cool, bruh. Even farming in Iowa evolved from using a single reaper and one beast of burden to plow some corn.

Ultimately, this is just sad. Unless you have deep allegiances to another Big Ten West institution, nobody hates Iowa. People think it’s cool when they do well every Olympiad to get to Indianapolis and then proceed to lose to Michigan or Ohio State. But with the rest of the division playing up and the Big Ten poised to make more money than even the rich SEC, nepotism just isn’t good enough…

Ferentz needs to either fire his son as offensive coordinator or retire after the end of the season.
