Fran McCaffery I thought that was really interesting, Chad. Good observation by you. You're a smart guy. You really are a smart guy. Either that, or I guess I've got to do a much better job of getting Luka Garza to the free-throw line, apparently. I'm just a horrendous coach. Shoots one free throw. That's my fault. I'll take full blame for that.
