Iowa football coach Kirk Ferenc argues that Nebraska attributes problems to center-back Cameron Jurgens during Friday’s game to crack from the Hawkis side line.
After losing the Cornhuskers 26-20 on the road on Saturday, Nebraska coach Scott Frost was asked about Jurgens, who had five clicks in the first half. Frost told the media he believed the crack on Iowa’s side confused his center and caused an improper click.
“The problem with clicks today, I don’t think it has anything to do with it [Jurgens’] technique, ‘said Frost. There was a crack on their side line, and Kam heard that crack and thought it was the quarterback’s crack. We discussed it with the officials and it did not happen in the second half. “
Ferenc was informed of Frost̵
“I’ve never heard of it,” Ferenc said. “If a player was on the court and he understood it. But what are we talking about? The next thing you know, we’re going to treat it like golf. I would say tennis, but they do it in tennis. In golf, no one can say nothing, right? “
Ferenc said he believed the clapping Frost was referring to a time when he and his coaches were encouraging their players on the sidelines. He said he had no malicious intent to defraud. The staff talked to Ferenc about this at half-time, but he said he believed the coaches simply welcomed his team.
Ferenc continued to push in Nebraska, saying he believed the Haskers had a “routine program” for third falls on the other side.
There were no penalties or cracks during the game, but Ferenc kept asking why this was still a problem after the game.
“We just have to go home right now. What are we talking about?” Ferenc said. “It’s football, isn’t it? It’s football. Are they okay with how I dressed today? Do I have to change my pants, a different shirt? What are we talking about?”
