Kirk Ferentz says focus on Michigan not on me

Iowa isn't giving up on Kirk Ferentz despite a third straight season of diminishing results.

The Hawkeyes simply have to hope that the well-respected coach who has twice revived the program has another turnaround in him.

Iowa (4-6, 2-4 Big Ten) is on course for its worst season since 2000, when it went 3-9.

The Hawkeyes have lost four games in a row and will need to beat Michigan and Nebraska to qualify for a bowl game.

Ferentz says the key for the Hawkeyes is to simply focus on Saturday's game at Michigan (7-3, 5-1).
