Maybe Iowa Was Offside

Check that. Remember Wednesday's item about the blown calls in bowl games, specifically Iowa being called offside on an onside kick that the Hawkeyes recovered? We have new evidence, presumably provided by Florida fans, that indicates the refs were right on top of it. While Iowa fans remain in a hissy over the Outback Bowl, they have new worries about coach Kirk Ferentz. The good folks at the Houston Chronicle are reporting that the NFL's Texans, currently searching for a coach, want to size up Ferentz for a 10-gallon hat. This is enough to cause shock waves from Fort Dodge to Fort Madison. But rest easy, Hawkeye faithful. Pat Harty of the Iowa City Press-Citizen breaks it down and says it is unlikely that Ferentz will saddle up and head for Houston.
Update: OK folks, if you haven't figured it out, this image has been altered.

Photo could have easily been photoshopped. Just sayin.
