It's no secret at this point that watching paint dry is more entertaining than the Iowa Hawkeye football offense this season.

There have been a plethora of scapegoats -- Spencer Petras, injuries, and Kirk Ferentz, to name a few. But the one we can all agree on is that Brian Ferentz is awful at his job. It's so bad that a petition was started on to get Brian fired last year, and it caught fire once again in 2022.

Just a few days ago, the petition had 6,567 signatures. As of today, it's reached 8,253.

He only made it worse at yesterday's press conference by asking "What's the upside?" to starting Alex Padilla instead of Petras (who has been awful).

The people of Iowa are ready to see Brian canned -- and that's produced some high-quality content on Twitter. Let's take a look:

Shoot, you could pay me that much to rank dead last in offense!

We learned absolutely zilch.
