    Re: Sporting News Article

    I think he gets it. We're doing well with plenty of work to do.

    I really appreciate an article that's written by somebody who looks like they took the time to know what they were writing about.
    And it's nice to be mentioned by the Sporting News.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    “Teams that weren’t successful that I played on, and there were a lot, everybody had their own agenda,” Hoiberg said. “One thing we sold to all those guys: They’ve got a chance to do something special together. This is a way for those guys to bond and build very important chemistry.”

    Well written. Can't wait to see this team next year, and all the love we will get if this year's team over-produces.

    Re: Sporting News Article

    This team has peoples' attention.
    It certainly has ours, doesn't it?
    Lot's of basketball yet to be played, but already I want a Freddie Ball T-shirt.
    Now, where can we get them?

    The season will continue to be fun, despite our W/L record.

    Re: Sporting News Article

    I honestly believe that a lot of these sportswriters miss having good ISU teams. We're fun for them to cover.

    Remember when DeCourcy went on the radio last year and said "who can ISU get better than McDermott?" Guess we found someone.....

    Re: Sporting News Article

    Very good, realistic article. Freddie is building the foundation of something great here, and it's easy to get expectations up.

    Heck, he's lived up to every expectation we've had for him so far.

    One thing I know for sure- the man will succeed in turning this thing around.

    This is pure supposition on my part, so keep that in mind. No insider information out of me.

    I'm just reading the stories that are coming out about our program, and there seem to be some good feelings out there for us. In football, the media seems to love the status quo, and they love the opposite in basketball.

    I just have a gut feeling that we've been a fun story for these writers before. It's not like they aren't familiar with things we've done, like our tradition of beating Kansas and Hilton Magic.

    I can't necessarily prove it. It's just a feeling I get from reading these articles, like they're glad to have us back and have a story like that to write.

    One thing I know for sure- the man will succeed in turning this thing around.
    It seems to me that if I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to play for Coach Hoiberg, I would know that he could certainly influence my future playing basketball.
    When my career was over, I wouldn't want Fred to be able to say one negative thing about me to an NBA scout.
    I would bust my butt every day for my team and for myself knowing that eventually he could/would influence the probability of getting a tryout.

    (That is a pretty heavy "club" he is wielding.)
    Fred certainly seems to have their attention.
