The University of Iowa announced Monday that the Hawkeye football team must average 25 points per game and reach seven wins in 2023 in order for offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz to keep his job. The school also is cutting his pay by $50,000 (to $850,000).

The response on social media was about what you'd expect.

Locally and nationally, there were plenty of eye rolls at the need for contract amendments and how unambitious they are. As many soon pointed out, 85 of 131 FBS college football teams averaged 25 points per game last season. Here are some of the top social media reactions from Monday's announcement:
