Iowa quarterback James Vandenberg has had one of the most surprisingly miserable senior seasons anyone could imagine.
It's not going to cost him his job.
Hawkeyes coach Kirk Ferentz reiterated on Tuesday that Vandenberg is his starter for Saturday's game at Northwestern (6-2, 2-2 Big Ten).
Many wondered if Iowa (4-3, 2-1) might go in another direction after Vandenberg and the Hawkeyes were dismantled by Penn State 38-14. But Ferentz was adamant that Vandenberg will be his quarterback until his eligibility is up.
Ferentz says everyone in the program believes in Vandenberg.
