It was another poor showing by the Iowa offense against an Ohio State team with an improved defense and an offense that finally found its footing in the second half. It amounted to a 54-10 blowout for the Buckeyes, who just continue to roll.
We like to keep track of what the opposition says after each Buckeye game, and we are especially interested after watching what this Iowa offense has become this year. What we saw Saturday only reinforces the trouble on that side of the ball.
Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz met with the media in Columbus after the game and was quick to give credit to a very talented Ohio State team, but he also had to answer for how inept the offense is and why there aren’t changes being made, namely with the offensive coaching staff that just so happens to have his son as the offensive coordinator.
It was a rather brutal presser for Ferentz and if you didn’t get to see his comments and answers to some pretty tough questions, we’ve got his entire press conference thanks to our Buckeyes Wire YouTube channel.
Watch below and listen to Ferentz praise the skill of the Ohio State offense, how improved the OSU defense is from last year, and then the answers to what needs to be done about the Hawkeye offense.
I must say, Ferentz handled the questions well, but he has some very tough decisions to make in the future.
As far as Ohio State goes, it will turn its attention to prepping for a road game at Penn State next Saturday.
