If you don't want to read all that the basis of it is...

Wadley states Brian Ferentz called him a “dumb mother fucker” while on his way to take an exam.

Wadley also states Kirk Ferentz gave him note cards on what to say in press conferences. He also states he turned to alcohol to cope with the constant put downs by the coaching staff. He also states Kirk Ferentz threatened to take away his meal card. Kirk followed through on this and Wadley had to call his mom to get a Domino’s pizza.

Wadley states Brian Ferentz wanted someone on the OLine to injure Reggie Spearman because he hated him and wished he wasn’t there.

Details aren't important, but the rivalry for our schools was boiling, I had been taken down, and did a move called a 1 point granby, and when I found myself on my feed ready to reshoot....the ref had called me pinned on the roll through.

I was livid and didn't respond in a way that reflected well on myself, my team or my coach...I said something stupid to the ref. A few people in the home crowd said some things to me while I was on the mat, and I said something back...

When I got to the edge of the mat, my coach grabbed me by the face, and shoved me behind the seats but still in the gym, put 2 hands on my throat, lifted me off of the ground against the wall and explained through the wall of veins bulging from his face what a poor choice I'd made. My feet were back on the ground before I was sleeping.

I knew it before the words had left my mouth but couldn't stop it....He was right and I knew that too. It was embarrassing and I apologized to him, my team, the ref and their crowd after the meet.

My fault. I was coached.....sternly.....and I deserved it and learned a lot from being coached hard with high expectations.

It's not comfortable to yelled at or clowned on for an error, but that shit builds character.
I get your story, lots of us have those stories growing up, you're probably older than me but not by a lot. I think one of the big things though is with how much society has changed especially with school and raising of children, kids don't think it builds character anymore, they think you're being a dick.

I'm not sure what the line here is but this is where we are today.

My favorite coach would yell and call you a pussy but he also would give you a hug as well. To this day, me and my teammates would run through a wall for that man. He made us all into men. We haven't played football for 17 years now.

Boomers all preach about toughness but cant handle people driving in the left hand lane or the Denny's waitress not refilling their tea on time. Chiefsplanet is full of old white fucks that aren't strong enough to his their racism for 5 god Damn seconds.

This message has been deleted by Demonpenz. Reason: I live with my parents and I am 40. I forgo my right to speak on toughness

LOL Good Lord. Your coach legitimately assaulted you.

You admit yourself you regretted your actions immediately after making them so how was your coach's reaction helpful and not grossly unnecessary?

Imagine if this same situation was playing out at Nebraska and how you would feel about it instead of blindly defending Iowa’s program, boomer.

None of this. I realize you're a teacher, but I work with kids every day as well. I've seen zero of this. Kids are smart and caring.

I've consulted at the University of Iowa for years, including with the athletic department. Why would you presume to know anything about what I know?

That's the society we live in today and at some point they will be responsible for our society.
And the kids that are raised to handle adversity and thrive on challenges will eat those kids for lunch as both teens and adults.

Yes. Or don't insinuate you have inside sources. Or shut the fuck up.

Because you are race baiting, which negates anything else you might think or say. Go ahead, tell us your basis for consulting with the UI AD. You sell paper towels and urinal cakes?
