About this Episode

On Episode 35, Sam and Jack are joined by RS Freshman forward Patrick McCaffery to discuss the current season for the #8 Iowa Hawkeyes, his unique recruitment to Iowa, and everything in between. We start with Fran's shoe game and how his culture has evolved from his beginning years at Iowa to now, with Patrick citing the Texas Tech and Tennessee games from 2019 as catalysts to the contender status they have. We discuss Patrick's relationship with his older brother and teammate, Connor McCaffery, and how that dynamic has shifted from playing HS basktball together at Iowa City West HS to playing at Iowa together. We talk how the State of Iowa and the AAU circuit is underrated and stories Patrick has during his AAU traveling days. Patrick explains why he deleted Twitter after the Christmas Day game vs. Minnesota and tells Sam that he can be an honorary bench member.
