There is not really much you can say about a team that allows 16 points in the last 50 seconds of regulation, especially when such a collapse was not particularly surprising.

So here is the photoshop of Frown McCaffery again.

If you did not watch said collapse, you are fortunate. It was a slow-motion trainwreck, fraught with errors and Nebraska morphing into Tracy McGrady playing with 4 other Tracys McGrady. In fact, just watch this and pretend the Spurs are Iowa. That's about it.

Iowa limps into the Big Ten Tournament at 21-10 (10-10), which is a weird sentence to write given the team's position last season (and three games into the conference season). The Hawkeyes are still solidly in the NCAA Tournament, given how terrible the bubble is, but we're starting to look at a 9 or 10 seed. That's a terrible slide given the outside-but-real chance Iowa had at sneaking into a 4 just a few weeks prior. 

Save us, Megan Gustafson, you're our only hope.
