Welcome to the meltdown

Remember all that hand-wringing about Iowa only making the NIT this year? Uh, whoops. (site requires Adobe Acrobat)

It was obvious that Iowa played their way out of the NCAA tournament when they let Purdue steamroll them on Friday. But now it seems that they played themselves out of the NIT too.
And yet somehow, we probably won't be seeing Dick Vitale screaming on our television screens about this snub.

So there it is. The season's over. 17-14. Iowa's now watching ninety-seven other teams play in some sort of post-season play. Since I don't like Alford, I'll be posting some of the less reasonable fan reactions in this space for the next day or two.
