Kirk Ferentz saves his venting for home ... if even there

He tells his players to assume they're being taped ... everywhere

IOWA CITY -- Briefly at Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz's weekly press conference Tuesday the topic was the Bo Pelini rant captured on audiotape two years ago and delivered to the world on Monday.

Q.  Speaking of highs and lows for coaches, what do you think about the situation with Bo Pelini, and how do you personally handle that? 

A: "... It's pretty much what I tell our players and explain to them. They really need to assume they're being recorded or taped or both pretty much any time they're anywhere other than a closet, maybe. So that's kind of the deal there.

"My wife probably gets my vents. She's the recipient, and that is probably risky, too, because that's about a 50-50 shot of me being in good standing there, and I'm exaggerating the 50 part for me. Usually I'm way behind in the count there."
