From a statistical standpoint? Sure. Also it’s now 2-4.I mean I’m mad too but wouldn’t you expect them to be 2-2 in close games?
There was like 5 seconds on the shot clock. Just stupid.1-3 in close games this year right? That’s coaching.
Up 61-58 around 2 minutes left and your senior pg makes the exact same mistake your sophomore guard made against Minnesota by going under instead of over the screen. Tie game. How is it that hard to coach a player to understand time and score and how you defend the situation is different?
You think he'll have a better team?I’m curious..how many agree with this take? I think it is fucking stupid, but know there are a lot of Iowa fans who agree with it. Generally I still feel Fran has brought us a lot of good times and will likely have his best post season to date this spring. I’m not at all convinced that Iowa could bring in a stud coach that would really improve things much.
This 50/50 makes sense so I looked at Fran’s career at Iowa. Arbitrary criteria and not accounting for end game free throws, but in games decided by six points or less or in OT, Iowa is 35-61.From a statistical standpoint? Sure. Also it’s now 2-4.
Only argument I would make to refute that is Iowa’s defense is so bad that they put a ton of pressure on their offense late. They’re not likely to force a tough shot which decreases their chance of getting a stop.
I’m not really sure. He probably won’t ever have a team with more offensive fire power, but he’s going to have quite a bit of talent in the program still and he’s consistently had us in the top half of the big ten with less talent.You think he'll have a better team?
Obviously I don't, so here we sit, forever.
So then Garza with have ended the game with three fouls.I’m not defending Fran’s stupid two foul rule, but I kind of understand it the way this game was officiated in the first half. There is a 100% chance someone would have picked up a third foul on a phantom call.
Top half of the Big Ten, but never a real threat to win it. While I like his personality, it isn't endearing to most Iowa fans. So, like I was saying, here we sit. Better, but disappointing.I’m not really sure. He probably won’t ever have a team with more offensive fire power, but he’s going to have quite a bit of talent in the program still and he’s consistently had us in the top half of the big ten with less talent.
Of course. But there is no danger in playing him 2 minutes here and 2 minutes there. Of course Indiana is going to go after him on offense. But he’s smart enough to know to get out of the way. He wasn’t guarding Jackson-Davis. He was guarding someone that wasn’t really a threat to score.I’m not defending Fran’s stupid two foul rule, but I kind of understand it the way this game was officiated in the first half. There is a 100% chance someone would have picked up a third foul on a phantom call.
The problem is his primary backup brings defenders straight down to Garza. We can all pretend that Joe T is going to make 10 layups a game but the reality is he clogs the lane for Garza.He can’t seem to create space even off of screens. He’s one dimensional and hasn’t been very good at that one dimension since he was injured.
Best in college basketball is a stretch, but he’s shooting 38% this year, 40% for his career, and is one of the most decorated 3 point shooters in big ten history. Bohannons shooting is not the problem. Weird take.When will JBo become the best shooter in college basketball? I am asking this to Bobby Hansen who continues to refer to him as such.
You either have the balls to call him out on a follow-up or STFU up about it. But I agree, as the losses begin to pile up, many get annoyed with this type of response from Fran.Fran is a bitch for answering like that, the reporters circling the wagons are every bit the bitches for acting like the developed PTSD from a mean answer.
