Maybe this is why Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz doesn’t let freshmen talk to reporters.
UPDATE: The post I refer to below was taken off the Northwestern News Network late Wednesday afternoon.
On Wednesday, the Northwestern News Network posted a 9-second video of an interview with Wildcat freshman tailback Adonis Smith.
The NNN asked Smith what Northwestern Coach Pat Fitzgerald has had to say this week about Iowa.
Smith’s reply: “Coach? I really haven’t heard anything from him, he’s just…he hates them. I know that for a fact. He hates Iowa.”
Maybe I should take my post down, too. Maybe I never should have put it up. It was for cheap heat, for page-views. It doesn’t serve the greater good. It doesn’t add anything to the historical document of how we lived and who we were. I need to rethink things.
Then again, the Northwestern News Network is funded by the Medill School of Journalism, a more-acclaimed journalism school than any that gave me a diploma and kicked me out the door.
