That's more like what Iowa fans were thinking when the men's basketball team hired Fran McCaffery to replace Todd Lickliter. After a disappointing 11-20 first season under the former Siena coach, Iowa surprised many with its 18-17 encore — a season highlighted by upset victories over ranked Wisconsin, twice, then-No. 13 Michigan and then-No. 18 Indiana on its way to capturing an NIT berth. It might not sound like much, but this is a program that went 38-58 since 2007-08 and hadn't sniffed the postseason. And now, it's thinking bigger things. Like the NCAA tourney.
