To those people who complain about the salary of Coach Kirk Ferentz: Perhaps you didn’t read The Gazette’s Nov. 3 article, “At what cost?” stating that in 2011, Iowa football made $44 million and paid Ferentz $4.3 million. Good investment! It kept the university from dropping any of its 22 varsity sports programs.
I don’t think any other University of Iowa employees bring in that kind of money.
Injuries this year have wrecked the football team. Ferentz and Hayden Fry are the best things that ever happened to UI.
If you want to see great Hawkeye players, watch the NFL. You will see Chad Greenway, Dallas Clark, Adrian Clayborn, Jonathan Babineaux, Bryan Bulaga, Christian Ballard, Mike Daniels, etc. Enough said.
