With the Hawkeyes hiring a new coach there were doubts since he was an unknown coach but he sure did prove the Hawkeye fans wrong with a 37-7 over Purdue as his first time coaching this team. The Hawkeye offense relies on Marcus Coker but this new coach liked to throw the ball more than pound it out and it showed greatly. James Vandenberg came out on fire, as he threw for 286 yards and went 16-21 and threw for 4 touchdowns but on a bad note he also threw 3 interceptions but the Hawkeye offense was still able to move down the field Vandenberg likes to spread the ball around and throw it to many of his top receivers even the tight end got quite a bit of catches. Marcus Coker only rushed for 86 yards but hey he's a Sophomore he has two more years to play at this school then he will really shine. The Hawkeyes take on Nebraska next week. We are really looking forward to it.
