The beginning of the football season is just over three short months away for the Iowa Hawkeyes and their head coach Kirk Ferentz.

Ferentz faces a number of challenges following a disastrous 2012 that saw Iowa go 4-8 on the back of a talent-poor defense and an incompetent new offense.

Therefore, Ferentz's biggest challenge will be getting to a bowl and showing that he can still coach up a team in the world of up-tempo spread offenses and hybrid-heavy defenses.

The order of the following is based on how crucial each one is in terms of insuring the Hawkeyes take positive steps this season.
