Iowa offensive coordinator / quarterbacks coach Greg Davis told us before spring ball started that he didn't arrive in Iowa City to install the Texas offense.
Davis recently sounded excited about the foundation Kirk Ferentz has established with the Hawkeyes' program.
David cited, "I think there's been more things verified that I thought I knew about the program than just new things. Iowa has a reputation of being extremely physical, well-coached, smart football team. That has been verified. The guys like the game. They understand the game. So it's been more along those lines than something I didn't expect."
In addition, David said, "What we will do here will be driven by what we have here. I say that in reference to what we had at Texas in '98. They said you're stupid if you don't get in the I-formation and make sure Rickey (Williams) is the lead dog."
"Our definition of balance is being able to win the game either way. It's not that you run 35 and throw 35. It's that you can win the game whatever that day dictates you be able to win the game. That's where we're headed."
Today, the Big Ten Network went inside the film room with Davis as he and Gerry Dinardo took a look at the inside zone running concept and play action pass.
