Commentator called out
Iowa coach Fran McCaffery wants ESPN color commentator Dan Dakich to apologize to Hawkeyes center Adam Woodbury for calling him "gutless" and "cowardly" during the broadcast of Tuesday's 82-50 loss to Wisconsin.
Dakich called out Woodbury after the center appeared to poke the eyes of Wisconsin's Nigel Hayes and Frank Kaminsky in separate incidents.
McCaffery defended his player Wednesday while blasting Dakich during the taping of his weekly radio show.
"Dan Dakich is so far out of line," McCaffery said.
Officials didn't call a foul on either play. The Big Ten has yet to announce whether it will discipline Woodbury for the incidents.
Dakich stood by his comments during an interview on Wednesday.
