Ohio State pregame -- Ferentz video

  • Photo

Here's Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz's opening statement, the reasons why the defense has given up three game-winning drives this season ("Couldn't get off the field"), the health of the Hawkeyes (LB Jeff Tarpinian reinjured stinger and is done for the year), says Persa's performance Saturday was maybe the best against the Hawkeyes in his 12 years.

Here, Ferentz discusses Iowa WR Marvin McNutt, who terrorized OSU last season, the possible reasons why Iowa has only scored 17 points the last two weeks and then the 26-member senior class.

Ferentz talks about the importance of getting off to a strong start this week against Ohio State, what Iowa has in DJK and the expectations (from the outside) and what exactly they mean on the inside (inside the complex, your expectations are meanlingless, as I'm sure you already knew).

Ferentz talks about recruiting against Ohio State in Ohio. He said it's not so much recruiting against Ohio State as it is waiting in line behind the Buckeyes and coach Jim Tressel. Expectations for QB Ricky Stanzi and a couple Ohio State questions round this out.

Ferentz talks about the many gears Ohio State's offense possess. He also talks OSU QB Terrelle Pryor and Iowa injuries, including G Adam Gettis, WR Colin Sandeman and DC Norm Parker.

More Pryor, an update on ACL injuries to LB Bruce Davis and RB Jewel Hampton, the Ohio State defense and what's up with Iowa's two-minute offense.

Here, Ferentz discusses his team's moxie, the 3-4 defense against Indiana and where it went against Northwestern, a quick thought on James Morris, more Pryor, an explanation on why the 4-3 (Iowa's D-line is its best unit, want all four out there) and some Iowa FS Brett Greenwood.
