    Fran McCaffery has arguably the deepest team in the Big Ten, with his Iowa Hawkeyes able to go two-deep at essentially any position on the floor. But that depth doesn’t do a team much good when they have a tough time defending, and that was once again the case for the 20th-ranked Hawkeyes in their…

    After losing at home to Michigan State and Ohio State earlier in Big Ten play, Iowa was anxious to get a home Big Ten win over a ranked opponent. The Hawkeyes jumped all over their latest opportunity on Saturday as No. 17 Iowa (18-6, 7-4) ran past No. 10 Michigan (17-6, 9-2) 85-67. Roy Devyn…

    As if losing a game at No. 4 Wisconsin wasn’t enough, the Big Ten handed down their punishment for Fran McCaffery’s ejection on Sunday night. The Iowa head coach will be suspended for one game and receive a public reprimand from the conference. The school received a $10,000 fine as well. If you missed it,…

    You’ve seen the video by now. Fran McCaffery got himself tossed out of a game last night, bumping an official after getting a technical foul in a game where his team was winning at Wisconsin. On Monday morning, the Iowa head coach sent out a statement. “I want to apologize for my emotional reaction during…

    Fran McCaffery is notorious for having one of the most vicious tempers in all of college basketball, and he exploded on Sunday night. He is perhaps best known for this chair throwing incident. With No. 22 Iowa leading No. 4 Wisconsin 41-39 in the Kohl Center, McCaffery went off again. He was upset about a no-call…

    Tonight in Ames, IA was college basketball at its finest. A Friday night game in prime time between two intrastate rivals: Iowa and Iowa State. It has been quite some time since both teams played each other while ranked in the Top 25. In fact, you’d have to go back to 1987 the last time…

    Today against Purdue, Siena earned another moral victory — if there is such a thing. Purdue doesn’t figure to challenge in the Big Ten, but the Boilermakers are now off to a 5-0 start and looking like a potential NCAA Tournament team if they are able to earn some good victories in the Big Ten.…

  12. Iowa struggles but ultimately does enough to defeat Omaha

    Fran McCaffery

    Fran McCaffery’s Iowa Hawkeyes are a team many believe to be capable of at the very least reaching the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2006, with guard Devyn Marble and forward Aaron White among the returnees from last season’s 25-win squad. But after blowing out UNC-Wilmington on Friday night the Hawkeyes had their…

    Fran McCaffery

    Fran McCaffery got the Hawkeyes in the top four for Marian Catholic (Ill.) point guard Tyler Ulis, only to see him commit to Kentucky earlier this month. Two weeks later, Iowa got its first commit in the Class of 2014 in Hamilton High (Wisc.) shooting guard Brady Ellingson. The 6-foot-3 Ellingson announced his decision on…

  15. Trip to Montreal good for Siena and first year head coach Jimmy Patsos

    There aren’t many mid-major schools in the country that have such a rabid following like Siena. How many 8-24 mid-majors out there — actually, how many 8-24 teams, period — can say they averaged over 6,000 fans per home game last season? Siena outdrew Miami (FL) by more than 400 fans per home game, and…

  16. Hawkeyes: Don’t sleep on senior Eric May

    The Iowa Hawkeyes have a legitimate chance to get back to the NCAA tournament this season, even coming out of the supertough Big Ten. A great deal of outsider focus has fallen on the younger players brought in by third-year head coach Fran McCaffery. But current members of the team are careful to give all…

  18. Iowa’s Fran McCaffery to pitch at Wrigley Field

    Fran McCaffery

    I’ll take “Intentionally Misleading Headlines” for $1,000, Alex. Iowa’s journeyman head coach Fran McCaffery will, in fact, take the mound at Wrigley, but he won’t likely be a candidate for Tommy John surgery by the time he’s done. He’ll be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch on August 31, when the San Francisco Giants visit…
