Butler Did It

April 2, 8:00 p.m.


EXTRA!!

So, the Butler did it.

Todd Lickliter, Butler's six-year coach, and just voted National Coach of the Year, is coming to Iowa.

So much for the "Coach of the Day." That game is over, and the basketball game begins with the Coach of the Year.

Maybe we should just have AD Gary Barta pick the president. Sure would save a lot of time and trouble. Though it might be a little more expensive.

How many coaches turned Iowa down for one reason or another before they settled on Lickleiter? I would estimate 4-5.

Finance Note: I don't see this guy helping the bottom line in the short run. The returning team plus the fact no one knows him won't increase ticket sales. They may even drop. Iowa needed to make a splash, and they whiffed. If he wanted to go mid-major, the aforementioned Kirk Speraw would have been a better choice.
