Who? The Hawkeyes of Iowa.
What? The Hawkeye name is derived from The Last of the Mohicans. Herky came about in 1948.
Where? Iowa City, Iowa, which was created to be the capital of Iowa (that didn't last).
When? March 23rd, in Iowa City, Iowa.
Why? Strong conference record.
How? They were an at-large selection.
Surprise? The Big Ten doesn't release predictions past the top three, so we'll never know who expected Iowa to finish where, but they ended up in fifth.
Record: 26-8 (14-6 Big Ten)
Good wins: Dayton. At Penn State (one does not simply walk into State College).
Bad losses: At Indiana and at Colorado don't look as good as they did earlier in the season.
Who's running this show? Lisa Bluder, since 2000, Iowa's winningest coach.
