This week, a creepy reporter asked Fran which is better for Iowa,
make a deep run in the NIT, or an early exit from NC2A tourney.
Fran's response was great. 'I look at it like this; everybody wants to jump to that'
'I'm going to argue that there's very little difference between the teams that you're playing.
There just isn't. So, if you make a long run in this tournament, you could have essentially made a
long run in that tournament. It's really a question of who you match up against'.
Bingo. If you look at the teams in the NIT final four, Maryland, Baylor, BYU & Iowa are all very good teams.
'Texan by birth, Hawkeye by the Grace of God'
