Fran did the right thing this time. They were being mouthy bitches and got his team out of there. Fran protecting his players.
Agreed. And worst of all, it was the adults on Illinois that instigated it. Keep your mouth shut and walk off the court and there’s no issue. Start hollering at the other teams players as a coach and you’re asking for trouble. Fran didn’t say shit to their guys. Their coach was directing shit at Iowa’s guys directly.

I figured the “bullshit” he was talking about was Connor throwing a little elbow when the Illini guy was swatting at him.

Lol at the narrative being they were upset at the dunk. That happened minutes before. There was a make by Illinois and a timeout before any of this.

They were pissed at Connor shoving Ayo.
It was the dunk.

I don't believe it was the dunk, it had to be Connor's reaction to their hacking at the end and probably saying something.

At least we shouldn't hear it from IowaFan. I couldn't care less what the national perception is but when I have to hear it from IowaFan it never stops.

Connor was getting hacked at the end but he is his fathers son.
Connor definitely got chirpy.

Underwood was hollering at the end bear the tunnel but I’m not sure who it was directed at.

Knowing Illinois fans I’m expecting reports of fisticuffs leaving the arena

Good for him. It seems he realizes who was in the wrong. I didn’t expect that but it makes me respect him a little bit more than the zero respect I had for him before.

Anyone that thinks this was about the Wieskamp dunk is out of their mind.

This happened minutes that dunk. There was a made 3 pointer and a timeout.

The Illinois coach was yelling right at Connor first "that's bullshit" and then said it to Fran. Would make zero sense for him to be yelling at Connor over the dunk.

We’re how many years into Frans career at Iowa and we still don’t know how he goes about getting his starters rest?

Dude, the dunk happened with 12 seconds left in the game. That got it all started. The other shit escalated it, but that dunk pissed off their coaches.

No, it fucking didn't. They showed zero sign of being upset about it. Zero.

Illinois got what they deserved. Both on the breakaway dunk and then Connor giving Ayo an elbow to the gut when he's just hanging on Connor slapping and hacking at the ball when the ref is just letting the clock run out.

Fuck the Illinois bench and the ref for not preventing a flare up.

I hope this causes the Illini to go on a skid. Fucking hacks.

according to dolph, the vibe from the locker room was the dunk caused it.

Fuck those refs. Illinois being in the double bonus before Iowa was a goddamned abomination. Then acting like Connor needed to be escorted away after the buzzer when they were the ones who let him stand there and get hammered for several seconds.

Hey, we're mad a about Wieskamp dunking it, so let's show it by screaming at Connor McCaffery a few minutes later!

I don't know how you can be so sure. If you go back and watch Underwood was trying to tell his team not to foul but they hadn't backed off yet. Connor rightly throws it ahead and then after the dunk is standing in front of the Illini bench with a huge smile and getting the crowd pumped.
