    Bobby Lutz: ISU's ace in the hole

    Here are some comments that numerous Big 12 coaches made to me about Fred Hoiberg's hire of Bobby Lutz. He is one popular dude in the world of college basketball.

    Lutz will help out Freddy big time. His hire was a big get. A head coach who made the tournament 5 times at Charlotte will pay off big divedends for ISU.

    Really my only concern is that they keep a good dynamic. An experienced head coach might chafe a bit being as assistant again.

    From the quotes CW has provided, sounds like Fred will not make that an issue.

    Not going to be a problem IMO. I've gotten to know Fred pretty well since he got the job. He's a no ego guy. From everyone I've talked to and the vibe I've gotten from Lutz, he is the same way. I think that this is a great situation for both parties.

    Best recruit in years might just be Bobby Lutz!


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    Hopefully he will stick around for a while too. But you can't blame him if he goes after another HC position.

    maybe hes tired of the circus. if we pay him a few hundred large, maybe thats enough to live in a motor home in a place like boone.

    Re: Bobby Lutz: ISU's ace in the hole

    Somehow I expected Fred to get a real good assistant coach. But the Lutz hire exceeded my expectations. So far Hoiberg has exceeded all my expectations.
    I'm really excited about the future. I think its time to become a bball season ticket holder once again.....

    No doubt, Lutz did a great job at Charlotte. You really have to develop guys down there. He knows how to play the game in every sense of the word.

    Looks like a good hire for ISU.

    I just like his mustache.

    Re: Bobby Lutz: ISU's ace in the hole

    It takes a lot of self confidence to bring aboard a coach like that as an assistant, and I think he will be invaluable in helping Freddie for the next year or two (assuming he will get a head coaching gig sometime soon).

    Depends what your mindset is. It is possible that you need to think of your investment having a maturation date two-years off.
