Patrick dribbling 20 feet for the charge with Perkins alone under the basket was a sensible chuckle

Probably still getting a double bye and finishing in 4th.

Where this hurts the most is NCAA seeding. We were a 7 with a chance at a 6. Now you have to think we are an 8 with a chance at a 7

I’m so happy to never have to watch Connor or Rebecca again at Carver.

Tony and Kris should punch Coach Connor in his stupid face.

Poetic he went out losing to Nebrantska at home on his 3rd Senior day.

The difference in double teams/traps between the 2 teams was stark. Nebrantska rotated perfectly behind it. Iowa doubled because it seemed like the right thing to do but the other 3 players just refuse to leave the person they’re guarding.

Iowa also took some incredibly stupid shots when they had opportunities to get to the rim. Settled for a bunch of mid range jumpers. Even the substitution patterns made no sense today.

Perkins seemed very pleased to be taken out on offense at every chance in the 2nd half

Rebecca deserves a little more credit than that, no?
I would have like Rebecca as the 6th man or the 5th option on a good team. Featuring the offense through him and Connor is maddening to watching. The ball just stops and sticks, it isn't great to watch. On a day when you can't defend and can't hit shots, it kills your offense and today was one of those days.

Mostly they are a couple of unathletic and/or undersized guys that watching for up to 6 fucking years was long enough. Much like bohannon or Gesell before them, looking forward to watching someone else.

Just like constantly blaming bohannon was dumb, it’s dumb to blame Conner and Rebraca for this team’s deficiencies.

Patrick got hot today but it caused Fran to completely abandon Ulis and Perkins. Iowa’s defense suffers when those guys aren’t on the floor.

I simply fucking hate watching Connor play, and play pretty shitty, while subsequently sighing/rolling his eyes/acting shocked when he fouls/and screaming at his teammates when he is a really shitty defender and constantly out of position.

We got all we were gonna get out of him in the first half. Played way too much in 2nd half.

All that really matters is they are going to make the NCAA Tournament. Fran teams have shown that the seed means nothing, so just get in and hope you get hot and lucky. Not to mention that this year of all years, the top seeds are weak as shit. There isn't a single college basketball team in the country that is scary.

Well actually I don’t think I want Iowa playing Houston if they can avoid that that would be great.

This tourney will be as wide open as any I can remember. Probably going to be an all b12 final four! ;)
