'Impossible to describe' day for Iowa coach ends in OT loss

DAYTON, Ohio -- The longest day for Iowa coach Fran McCaffery ended with a loss and the end to a once promising season. Better news, McCaffery hopes, is yet to come.

McCaffery arrived back in Dayton a few hours before the game after returning...

Iowa revival is just Fran McCaffery’s latest fixer-upper

Fran McCaffery was just 26 years old when he got the head coaching job at Lehigh in 1985. The youngest Division I head coach at the time, McCaffery took over a team that had been 12-19 the previous season. McCaffery vividly remembers conducting a practice that first season when there was a burst of noise. Members of a fraternity stormed into the arena looking for one of their pledges...

Vols Face Iowa In NCAA Play-In Game

The No. 11 seeds Tennessee Vols and Iowa Hawkeyes will face off in a NCAA Tournament play-in game Wednesday at 9:10pm ET. The winner will play No. 6 seed UMass on Friday. A play-in game is probably not what the Vols were looking for when the bracket was announced this evening, but there is a silver lining to this. Both Iowa and UMass are very winnable games for the Vols. The bad part is the

Have these Hawkeyes underachieved? The answer isn’t easy

After Iowa’s 2012-13 basketball season had ended in the championship game of the NIT at Madison Square Garden in New York City, this is what I wrote looking ahead to this year: “Anything less than the program’s first NCAA Tournament bid since 2006 will be considered an underachieving season.” Now, 31 games into the 2013-14 season, those words have a hollow feel to them...

Fran McCaffery on Hawkeyes Tourney profile: “I’m not Joe Lunardi”

Fran McCaffery and his #24 Iowa Hawkeyes are likely in the NCAA Tournament. They will fall out of the polls, deservedly, after losing a Senior Night game in which they were favored by 12. But I still think they’re good to go dancing even if they get knocked out of the first round of the Big Ten Tournament this week. The Hawkeyes lost in dramatic fashion to an Illinois Fighting...
