Lucky Seven.

Just seven questions:

1.  When was the last time 40% of an Iowa scholarship group in any varsity sport quit?

2.  When was the last time Iowa's leading scorer posted 11 ppg?

3.  Who, among anyone who ever played a game, watched players who had big games in big wins (e.g., Palmer, Davis) buried while starters played 45, 47, 50 minutes -- and didn't think that was a little odd?

4.  Assume you run a company.  40% of the company quits in three days.  Do you say, "A quarter of that is personal.  The rest, an accident.  Buy our stock, because everything is on track.  I like how things are going."

5.  What seminal event occurred, unreported, before Iowa lost by 30 (to a team Iowa beat once) in the first round of the Big Ten tourney?

6.  Sure, we don't have a "basketball facility".  NCAA qualifiers: UNI, Xavier, Gonzaga, blah blah blah.  Oh, and Butler.  What prevents Iowa from recruiting and retaining successful athletes who instead choose conferences we can't even name?

7.  You're on scholarship (you are an employee, kinda).  You do whatever you are asked to do for your four years -- as evidence, you have not been run off the team.  It's senior day.  You're on the court for zero seconds.  Do you conclude that this is a classy move by a coach who understands that people play basketball, not coaches?  Do any of your teammates notice this graciousness?

Net: something is unreported here.  This is an extraordinary situation.
