Iowa Hawkeye Football: 14 Greatest Wins of the Kirk Ferentz Era

Iowa Hawkeyes head football coach Kirk Ferentz has taken his share of heat lately, most of it deserved.

However, it is worthwhile to consider some of the great moments he has brought to Iowa football. It is also worthwhile to keep in mind that while his current contract may be absurd, and it makes him effectively untouchable, he did earn it.

Lastly, there has been a positive return on the investment in his time at Iowa thus far. Therefore, absurd contract or not, he has earned one more chance to turn this program around.

The following will recount Ferentz's 14 greatest individual wins as the Iowa head coach. That is one for each year he has been in Iowa City, though, admittedly, the majority of the wins came between 2002 and 2004, an era that seems so long ago.

The wins are listed from least greatest to greatest.

The ranking not only takes into consideration the game itself, but also the importance of the game to the program and whether it contributed to a successful season overall.

For example, the 2006 Syracuse game, while exciting to watch—or at least overtime was exciting—was one small glimmer in an abysmal year. It was also against a team that finished the season 4-8 and whose head coach was pretty abysmal.

Enjoy, Hawkeye fans. I can remember where I was during all of them. Can you?
