Fran Rallies The Troops

Scene: The Iowa locker room moments before taking on Illinois in the Big Ten Tournament.

Iconmccaffrey_medium_medium Can I have your attention please?

Iconmccaffrey_medium_medium I have something I think you all ought to know about. It seems that the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee doesn't think too highly of our RPI. They thought we'd be bad enough to finish low enough to the point where they could select Northwestern and exclude all of our seniors from post-season play, in favor of better personnel.

Brommericon_medium_medium Even me?

Iconmccaffrey_medium_medium Even you Andrew.

Mayicon_medium_medium But what if we beat Illinois?

Iconmccaffrey_medium_mediumWe might make the CBI or even the NIT, but there still won't be an at-large NCAA bid.

Icongatens_medium_medium Well then I guess there's only one thing left to do.

Brommericon_medium_mediumWhat's that?

Icongatens_medium_medium Win the whole fucking thing.

Mayicon_medium_medium Yeah.

Elvis_fan_medium_medium YEAH!

GO HAWKS!!!!
