    ***Iowa vs. Tennessee Play-In Game Thread***

    Play-in game time! Winner gets to make the NCAA Tournament as an 11 seed.

    Game should tip around 8:20 tonight on TruTV.

    Fun Fact: Iowa's last NCAA Tournament game was in 2006. This streak would end if Iowa is able to win tonight and advance to a real NCAA Tournament game on Friday vs. UMass in Raleigh.

    Why does this get a thread with asterisks? Because nothing else is on. And this is about half a level above the NIT (and half a level below the real NCAA Tournament).

    You feel the floor give you a little tingle, man, Iowa State junior point guard Monte Morris said in a private moment after the game, leaning against a wall in the bowels of Hilton Coliseum. You feel it. You feel it. Its real. You feel it on the court. Its a tough feeling to explain. Its a vibration. It gets you going.

    He paused.

    Its magic.

    "White Magic" is ready to go:

    21. Fran McCaffery, Iowa -- McCaffery (aka "White Magic" according to his official bio) played one season as a part-time starting point guard at Wake Forest (1977-78) before transferring to Penn for his final three collegiate seasons. He subsequently led Penn to two NCAA appearances and an NIT berth.
    Fran McCaffery's nickname as a player was 'White Magic,' because of course it was. (USATSI)

    Really composed interview here by Fran in that difficult situation.
    It really is tough on the mind to do that, since he's thinking of the game at this moment, and just had to radically switch gears.

    Agreed, really impressed. Wonder what has been running through his head all day.

    Even More Fun Fact: Iowa's last NCAA Tournament win came about 6 hours before Hampton's last NCAA Tournament win.

    Did you see the Buckeye Charter bus? Haha!













    It would be more funny except that we used the same company last year.
