See my post in the "Good News Out Of The Beatdown" thread.I wondered how the team would respond with CMac gone. There were times last year where it seemed like they (PMac and others) didn't like his directness and coaching the rest of the team mid-game. But his loss seems to have a bigger issue than I expected.
This is just one of those weird transition years that hit every Iowa coach about every 5 years. The fresh, Dasonte and Dix have more athleticism, generally superior skills but a couple of seniors and Payton have more experience, are bigger and stronger-just more ready for heavy play.
This young group is going to be good. We have all enjoyed five good seasons. The next five will also be good.
Well, lucky me! I have lots of reasons to watch Iowa football and basketball, with a final 4 berth being well down the list. Would be nice, of course. I had season ticks as a grad student for that team.Well at least in my late teen years I got to watch an Iowa basketball team play in the final four. It is unlikely that any of the younger posters on here will ever get to see that in your lifetime. It’s been over forty years since.
Get used to that in men’s basketball and men’s football.
