IOWA CITY, Iowa – The three coordinators on the Iowa football, and strength and conditioning coach Raimond Braithwaite, all met with the media on Wednesday.
Iowa usually meets with the media on Tuesday during the season, but with this being a bye week, the three three coordinators and Braithwaite were made available on Wednesday instead.
Iowa’s next game is against Wisconsin on Oct. 30 at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisconsin.
The 11th-ranked Hawkeyes are 6-1 overall and trying to rebound from a 24-7 loss to Purdue this past Saturday at Kinnick Stadium. The loss snapped a 12-game winning streak dating back to last season.
Iowa offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz answered questions for nearly 40 minutes, and said he was disappointed in how the offense performed against Purdue in every phase.
Iowa defensive coordinator Phil Parker talked about what went wrong against Purdue, and about the difficulties in defending Purdue receiver David Bell, who set a Kinnick Stadium record with 240 receiving yards.
Iowa special teams coach LeVar Woods also talked about how happy he is with the performance of punter Tory Taylor, kicker Caleb Shudak and returner Charlie Jones.
Special teams has been a strength for Iowa throughout the season.
