I agree Fran needs to do something about the defense. I just hope everyone understands it will be at the expense of the offense. Between practice time and energy spent at the defensive end, our offensive numbers will definitely drop. The question is will we be overall better off.Your missing my point, Bluder has come out and admitted that they need to play better Defense, Fran has not even addressed that point and quite frankly, I don't think he believes they play bad defense. And by generational player I meant Keegan. I love Garza, but he isn't starting in the NBA.
Fran made a big mistake not playing Keegan more his freshman year. But last year was Keegan's only true year of being a "generational talent". So Fran really had one year to do something. Unfortunately the roster wasn't set up that well to take advantage. That's on the coach. But at a place like Iowa that can't just reload every year, we gotta be real and understand it's also just some bad luck timing. And like I've said before, 5 seeds lose first round all the time so it's not like it was some crazy thing. It's not like Kentucky losing first round as a 2 seed with the National Player of the Year.
