  1. Planning for success: Iowa comes in waves

    Eamonn Brennan

    Now that Iowa has last Sunday's win at Ohio State out of the way, we can officially say farewell to the Hawkeyes' well-earned narrative -- that they didn't know how to finish games -- and get down to the much more enjoyable business of appreciation. ...

  3. Iowa banking on better shooting

    Eamonn Brennan

    Prepare yourself: In the next five months, you are going to hear a lot about the Iowa Hawkeyes. This is for good reason. Iowa was a bubble team in 2012-13, which in itself was a drastic improvement over the post-Todd Lickliter rebuilding years, bu...

  4. Bubble Watch: Day's winners, losers, more

    Eamonn Brennan

    Well, well, well. Apparently, a few teams want to go to the tournament after all. OK, so of course everyone wants to play in the NCAA tournament. But watching the past week or so of college hoops, you could have been convinced otherwise. Why, it w...

  5. Fran McCaffery is quick on his feet

    Eamonn Brennan

    On Sunday, Iowa guard Aaron White threw a shoe at his coach. True story. When I first heard of this (on Twitter, of course) ... well, let's just say my interest was piqued. I assumed White threw his shoe in some sort of bizarre locker room confron...

    Eamonn Brennan

    As part of our Summer Shootaround series, here are the best- and worst-case scenarios for the Big Ten: Illinois Best-case: No one's expecting much from Illinois in 2012-13, and the reasons are obvious: With zero in the way of fresh blood enteri...

  8. For Matt Gatens, timing is everything

    Eamonn Brennan

    Consider, for a moment, the kind of week Iowa guard Matt Gatens just had. On Sunday, he set a then-career high in points, scoring 30 in a 78-66 win over Indiana. Four days later, Gatens scored 33 -- yes, another career high -- in a 67-66 win over ...

  9. Iowa auctions McCaffery's infamous chair

    Eamonn Brennan

    On Jan. 10, the Hawkeyes were in a tough spot. Michigan State was doing what Michigan State often does to teams like Iowa -- defending like crazy and scoring at will and blowing the Hawks off the floor in East Lansing, Mich. -- and by the 11-minute m...

    Eamonn Brennan

    The Morning After is our semi-daily recap of the night's best basketball action. Can you hear that? It's the sound of Indiana fans losing their ish harder than Fran McCaffery. No. 15 San Diego State 75, New Mexico 70: I tend to take issue with the...

  11. College hardwood's Bottom 10

    Eamonn Brennan

    In the past week we've seen three different coaches (Iowa's Fran McCaffery, Morgan State's Todd Bozeman and Connecticut's Jim Calhoun) face questions over their allegedly angry behavior during games, in each case drawing criticism for flat-out losing...

  12. Out of nowhere, Iowa on a roll

    Eamonn Brennan

    It's been a pretty great week for the state of Iowa. On Tuesday, 140,000 or so Iowan Republicans got together and proved that local politics -- the idea that actually going door-to-door and meeting people on the campaign trail, radical though it may ...

  13. Anthony Hubbard spurns Iowa after all

    Eamonn Brennan

    If you don't recall the ballad of Anthony Hubbard, start here. The short version is as follows: At the age of 18, Hubbard committed armed robbery with a group of friends, a crime that sent him to prison for four years. After he served his sentence, H...

  14. Fran McCaffery and the 'Color Paper Caper'

    Eamonn Brennan

    When you've just taken over a program in the sort of rebuilding straits as the Iowa Hawkeyes, it's important to maintain a sense of humor. Laughter is the best medicine. I'm pretty sure Albert Einstein said that, and he was a real Einstein, am I righ...

  15. Gatens injury another tough break for Iowa

    Eamonn Brennan

    Jinxes are not real. Whether you're watching baseball, navigating ladder-strewn sidewalks, or squaring off with the judge on the U.S.-Mexico border, it's important to remind yourself: jinxes do not exist. So, no, I do not have the power to jinx Io...

  16. Iowa's Matt Gatens potential breakout pick

    Eamonn Brennan

    You have to feel for Matt Gatens. He did, after all, come to Iowa in a torrent of optimism. New coach Todd Lickliter had just finished his first season, and at that point could be reasonably expected to rebuild the Hawkeyes in the manner of his forme...
