CHICAGO -- Here are most of Kirk Ferentz's postgame remarks after his Iowa football team's 18-17 triumph over Northern Illinois at Soldier Field.

But first, and mainly in order so that the video doesn't bleed into the Google ads, here is one of his responses:

On difficulties moving the ball through the air on NIU’s defense…

“We had a tough time.  We had a tough time protecting at times, and we certainly had a tough time getting open.  It just didn’t seem like we were in great sync throughout the game.  I give them an awful lot of credit.  They had a good game-plan. The mixed the pressure up with coverage, and did a good job.  They made it very tough on us.”
