I'm tired of people saying Iowa is a young basketball team.
The players don't think or say they're young.
It's the fans and coaches who are guilty of it--usually while looking for a reason or an excuse for why the team played poorly [like in yesterday's debacle against Indiana in the Big Ten tournament].
Iowa has played 32 games this season and the roster is loaded with tall, well-conditioned, strong, athletic physical specimens who play basketball 12 months a year.
Those individuals wearing short pants, tank tops and very expensive shoes while entertaining us are grown men, not young kids.
Sometimes they can have a bad day, just like you and me.
Yesterday was a bad day.
