    Re: The Perfect Tex Winters for Freddy's staff

    I disagree. A guy like that would probably love the chance to help a guy with Fred's character in learning the ropes of coaching. It wouldn't be about Iowa at all... it would be about his passion for the game and being able to use it without having all of the responsibility of running a program sitting on his shoulders. I like it.

    I could get behind the Tom Davis mentoring idea...

    I'm behind it if Fred would want him. He needs to be comfy with his staff. I hope he likes Grayer but lets not foist anyone else on the poor guy before he starts!

    As much as I'd like to tweak EIU fans, peeing down their throats is not an attractive image whatsoever.

    Could Gray take the Dir. of BB Opp. position and still coach?
    I think he wants to get in the gym and teach. FH needs
    another proven recruiter and someone with coaching expierience on the staff at least for now.

    He's a program builder, and I would get to laugh myself silly.

    The return of the bounce entry pass.

    We could do worse.

    Very excited about the Fred hire, but do think he needs an older, semi-retired NCAA coach on staff as a mentor.

    Hell No!

    Someone on Miller and Deace nailed it dead on when they mentioned Jim Hallihan. That's the guy.

    Re: The Perfect Tex Winters for Freddy's staff

    I hate to admit it but I agree. Dr. Tom's teams at Iowa always had a great understanding of the fundamentals and the guy could manage the game with the best of them. We could do a lot worse for a guy to sit by Fred on the bench and guide him. Let's face it... If Fred can pick this knowledge up then he could potentially become a force in the Big XII coaching ranks. :yes:

    On the bright side, if you get stung by jellyfish, and TruClone is around, you're golden... literally.

    As long as he adapted and realized that it's good to cover the other team's best three-point shooter. Never understood how that problem never got fixed by Dr. Tom.

    Either way, I think Fred just might become a force........Fred never fails.
