With around 10 minutes left in the game and his team up 41-39 against the undefeated Wisconsin Badgers, Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery went ape sh*t over non calls on consecutive possessions.
The TV audience went to timeout, but the camera’s kept rolling. He got his first technical for using verbose language and then got the 2nd technical and the DQ because you simply can’t run up on a ref like you’re backstage at a Chief Keef concert.
The McCaffery ejection led to 4 free throws which turned the game around. Wisconsin ended up winning the game 75-71.
