IOWA CITY – Iowa, bruised and battered from a tough home loss to Michigan State, will regroup over a bye week, coach Kirk Ferentz said Tuesday
“It was a tough loss last week,” coach Ferentz said. “So we have the bye week coming up right now, and basically try to get the guys rested a little bit and let them recharge.”
Ferentz and coaches Greg Davis and Phil Parker spoke about getting the team back on the practice field and improving their game.
“We’ll start practicing this afternoon,” coach Ferentz said. “Just try to see what we can do to improve the team on the field during the bye week, certainly, doing some work on the next four games. We’ve got a four game block coming up. And obviously recruiting, too. So that’s kind of what’s on our docket right now.”
Ferentz said he likes his team and where it is at in the season.
“I like this team. We were all disappointed with Saturday, that wasn’t much fun. It would be great to go into the bye week with five wins, but we came up short. Played a really good football team. So that’s disappointing.”
