Iowa men's basketball coach Fran McCaffery lost his head Sunday, erupting in a midcourt rant during the team's loss to Wisconsin. What began with the Hawkeyes losing an early lead ended with their coach bumping a Big Ten referee and earning an ejection.

While McCaffery apologized for the incident on Monday, the Big Ten fined him $10,000 and suspended him for the Hawkeyes' Thursday game against Northwestern.

The timing of the conference's discipline comes with a twist: Thursday is also Fran McCaffery Bobblehead Night at Iowa's Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
