08:17 AM ET 02.19 | On the face of things, Kirk Ferentz, who since entering his contract at Iowa is 10-14 in conference play and 2-7 against the program's chief rivals, might otherwise be considered on the hot seat. This is incorrect. The reasons why Ferentz is a made man at Iowa are complicated. They are financial and historical and personal to the figures involved, and they give Ferentz complete job security irrespective of his team's performance in 2013. ... Iowa could return to prominence next season; as is written every season, Ferentz is at his best when under the radar. But even if Iowa doesn't rise from its 4-8 chasm, there is little reason to believe that Iowa's power players will want action against Ferentz or, even if they did, that they could make that happen.
