Iowa offensive coordinator Ken O’Keefe was the first coach offered to the masses during Friday’s media day session.
The first minute-plus he talks about the example that QB Ricky Stanzi has provided as a player in practice and as a leader in the lockerroom. At 1:20, he gives me a book recommendation, “Training Camp.” I’ll give it a shot. I love books about how football works. At 2:08, he discusses some of the things Stanzi needs to work on.
The question of backups came up. Redshirt freshmen James Vandenberg and John Wienke are fighting it out for No. 2.
O’Keefe also brushes right past a question about him being the anonymous Big Ten coach who compared Stanzi to Tom Brady. He basically says, no.
