Iowa's Ferentz, after going 10-3: 'It’s hard to win'

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Though Iowa won 10 games last season, concluding the best five-year stretch in the program’s history, it wasn’t easy, coach Kirk Ferentz said Monday.

“Unless you’ve got a boat full of guys, it’s hard to win in college football,” Ferentz said at his postseason news conference. "There’s a lot of parity, a lot of good teams, a lot of good coaches. We’re seeing that in our conference. Top to bottom, there aren’t any easy outs. It’s hard to win.”

The Hawkeyes, who went 10-3 last season, won 47 games in five seasons. (Those three losses last season were by a combined 14 points.) Only eight other Football Bowl Subdivision teams won more over that period. Three of those - Ohio State, Wisconsin and Penn State - were in the Big Ten with Iowa.
