Iowa Coach Fran McCaffery is having a good time right now. His team plays a fun to watch brand of basketball that’s earned them the #12 spot in the AP poll. They beat the Illini in their building for the first time since 1999 Saturday night. And Fran McCaffery’s work has caught the attention of POTUS.
McCaffery has become friends with Oregon State Coach Craig Robinson — the brother of First Lady Michelle Obama — and was interested in inviting President Barack Obama to play basketball in Iowa in 2012.
