Would You Believe Kirk Ferentz Has a 46% Approval Rating?

Iowans are apparently some of the most easy-going and forgiving people in the world.

From PublicPolicyPolling.com (via @DrPattiJones):

-Iowa clearly wins out on college sports loyalties in the state with 43% to 23% for Iowa State, 9% for Northern Iowa, and 3% for Drake. Hawkeye fans are getting pretty restless with football coach Kirk Ferentz- only 46% approve of the job he's doing to 30% who disapprove. Those numbers are way down from last March when we found him with a 60/13 spread. Fran McCaffrey is considerably more popular- he has a 65/10 approval, little changed from his 64% approval last year. 

60% of Iowans approved of the job Ferentz did up until last year!? Only 14% of those folks abandoned ship after a disastrous 7-6 season?

Is Kirk Ferentz using all those millions to pay people's heating bills? THERE SHOULD BE AN INTIFADA IN THE STREETS BY NOW, IOWA!!!
