Kirk Ferentz still really loves punters, in case you forgot. Ferentz had some praise for Utah State punter Stephen Kotsanlee on Tuesday.

If anyone knows about punting, it’s Ferentz. Ferentz kept it short and sweet when talking about the punter, stating Kotsanlee was good. This is coming from the man who beat FCS program South Dakota State last season 7-3, so Ferentz knows what he’s talking about.

Iowa fans had some fun with the coach’s comments. The Hawkeye faithful were impressed by Kotsanlee’s facial hair.

One fan joked that Ferentz was simply telling his own players to take the under. Another is looking forward to the inevitable punt competition that they believe will take place.

No. 25 Iowa and Utah State meet each other on the gridiron on Saturday. Kickoff will be Noon ET on FS1.

How many punts will Iowa and Utah State have taken when it’s all said and done?
