McElwain wants Florida Gators program to emulate Hawkeyes | Iowa Hawkeyes Football |

TAMPA, Fla. — Shortly after Kirk Ferentz put his Iowa football team through a crisp, focused two-hour Outback Bowl practice Wednesday morning, Florida coach Jim McElwain praised the way the Hawkeyes typically go about things.

“This is one of those school that when you get an opportunity to play, you look forward to it because it’s a chance to test yourself against one of the most consistent programs in college football,’’ McElwain said during a joint news conference with Ferentz.

The Gators and Hawkeyes share 8-4 records as they prepare for Monday’s noon game at Raymond James Stadium, and McElwain said preparing for Iowa now isn’t all that different than it was when he worked as the assistant head coach, receivers coach and special teams coach on John L. Smith’s staff at Michigan State from 2003-05.
