I didn’t have a good feeling as the Hawkeyes traveled to Michigan last week.
People were coming out of the woodwork projecting that Iowa was a Final Four team. A few even said they were a dark horse to win the national championship.
The Big Ten, which has to be one of the toughest conferences in America, is not even halfway through the season.
