Iowa entered the 2020-21 men’s basketball season with Big Ten and national championship aspirations. After four losses in its last five games, the question is if Iowa’s in actual, real trouble. Not of making the NCAAs, but of having just another year instead of something better as was assumed for so long.
The Gazette’s Mike Hlas and Nathan Ford answer that question on this week’s On Iowa Podcast, plus:
• Should players automatically sit the rest of the half with two fouls, like Luka Garza did in Sunday’s loss to Indiana? And what do we make of Fran McCaffery’s reaction to being questioned about that decision?
• How much does this team miss CJ Fredrick?
• The Hawkeyes face Rutgers and Michigan State this week. How much of a threat is either?
