LISTEN: Northern Iowa coach takes you inside the No. 13 Panthers
As the weeks have gone by, Northern Iowa coach Ben Jacobson has found himself talking less and less about the polls with his team. The novelty of being highly ranked has worn off for the No. 13 Panthers, and now they see only what's ahead: a well-earned opportunity to make noise in the NCAA tournament this March.
Jacobson joined Reid Forgrave and Tarik Turner on Run It Back, FOX Sports' college hoops podcast, to offer some access into UNI, perhaps the nation's best mid-major team in 2015 and a squad that, currently 22-2, is no longer sneaking up on people.
Among the topics covered in the conversation:
* What makes Seth Tuttle (team leader in points, rebounds and assists) such a special player
* The mistake Jacobson made last season in trying to make his team something it's not
* Why Jacobson will be really concerned if this is as good as UNI gets
