New offensive coordinator Greg Davis got the opportunity to sit down with the media for the first time yesterday to talk about his time in Iowa City so far, and his plans for the Hawkeye offense moving forward.
"From the very time Kirk and I started talking it was about blending philosophy, about blending the way we call things and creating something that was 2012." Davis said. "We're just trying to take the best of both worlds, put it together and come up with something that is ours."
Staying at a local hotel for the time being, Davis says that he has gotten a pretty clear picture on how important football is to Hawkeye country. The other night he came in to find some guys in their 20's and 30's sitting around the lobby, and they recognized him, and they came over to talk for a bit, and as Coach Davis puts it "I was immediately invited to go to a bachelor party."
Being out of the football limelight for a few seasons, Davis spent his time traveling the country visiting high schools and college campuses taking notes and trying to see football in a different light.
"I tried to get out once a week and watch high school teams. Then, on the weekends, I kind of went back in the man cave and taped every game that I couldn't watch." he said.
