Computers don’t adjust for Iowa under Fran historically plays lights out the first part of the schedule.

However, I personally do feel they have been playing like a top 10 team.

I don’t think I’d agree with that. I’d say November is typically Fran’s worst month, keeping in mind the competition tends to be quite weak.

What are you talking about? Fran always starts out hot but usually dips around mid January early February.

Sometimes his teams can bounce back, sometimes not.

Like last year
Last year cut both ways, solid ending with a conference tournament championship but a fist round exit in the NCAA. Overall, last year did feel like Fran’s most consistent squad. Hope that continues this year, I believe it will with the veterans on this team.

He does well In late December. I don’t think his November record is so hot. Do you have a source for your claim, because I can’t find one that is easily referenced?

I predicted a top 7 finish for Iowa in the Big 10. Iowa appears to be 6th now.
