    Iowa’s defense has been garbage and the key shooters are non-existent behind the arc. Oregon doing last years Michigan strategy. Let Garza feast and stop everyone else. Bohannon and CJF look like shit.

    our tallest starter is 6'6 since our center tore his knee early in the year. garza is going to get his no matter what altman schemes up. just need to stop giving him and-1s on ball swipes when he's going up for layups.

    Fran has been at Iowa for 10 years yet every single one of his teams has the same characteristic in that they can’t guard the perimeter. It’s truly remarkable.

    I ask this seriously and not trolling (I'm a rare Nebraska fan who doesnt care about what Iowa does)....are Iowa fans "OK" with this type of season or do they think they could take it to another level with a different coach? Seems like a similar thing to what I hear Creighton fans constantly debate here.

    We’ve been in the top 10 the majority of the season and top 5 for a lot of it. Think we were #4 coming into the year. Getting bounced before the Sweet 16 again would be a huge disappointment with how much talent we brought back.

    With the hype coming into this season, this would be such an utter disappointment of a season, IMHO.

    Yeah he’s not going anywhere. Our AD doesn’t fire coaches with even average success.

    Yea he was just extended before the tournament. Such a dumb move, but classic coming from our awful AD. Anything less than sweet 16 with this team is a massive disappointment.

    Not making B1G excuses, but Loyola and Oregon were amazingly underseeded.

    Oregon went 20-6

    Loyola is #9 in KenPom

    Oregon looks like a top 15 team, and them not being ranked that high in the AP is criminal. I never understood it.

    Man, if you are Iowa this start has to be demoralizing. Need to respond after the TO. You have a solid half offensively and are still down 10, then this is a rough start that could snowball quick.

    if the NCAA properly seeded the mid-majors, there would be less "fun" upsets with double digit seeds. So they have no incentive to change

    Only thing I can think of is the fact their non-con schedule wasn't great and they lost to Mizzou game one. That and the Pac 12 was pretty "top heavy".

    Not much of a non-conference and went 4-5 against tourney teams would be my guess.

    They also only played like two games in 3-4 weeks because of COVID stuff about halfway through the season, so I bet they fell off the radar a bit.

    Loyola was also #10 in the NET rankings too, so not sure why they made such a big deal about the new ratings system if you're going to put a top 10 team as a middle seed.
