    Cool scout team quote from CFH teleconference (12-13)

    I'm currently transcribing yesterday's Fred Hoiberg teleconference and I thought I'd give this question and answer its own thread. Pretty cool stuff on the scout team.

    @font-face { font-family: "Cambria"; }p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }div.Section1 { page: Section1; } Q: You guys have the best scout team in America. How much has that helped you guys in practice?

    FH: The thing that I am most proud of with that group is how they have gone out and embraced their role. They really take a lot of pride in going out and getting our players prepared to play in games. Bobby Lutz is in charge of our scout team. He gets them here before practice and runs through plays with those guys and then they go out and execute it to perfection. If our guys go out and play against those guys, very rarely are they going to see that type of talent in a game situation. They have embraced it. They have done a tremendous job. They went out the day before the Iowa game and just kicked our guys’ butts. They just had their way with them. But it gets them prepared. The thing that I love it about it is that those guys are sitting in the front row of the stands and yelling at our guys what the play is and where they need to get to. We just keep talking to them. I bring those guys into my office a lot and just talk about how quickly this season is going. We’ve already played a third of our games. Next season will be here before they know it. Those guys will be out there playing and they see how much fun our guys are having right now. We talk about how those guys are the future of our program. They are excited about what they are doing right now but obviously, they are more excited about getting on the court next season.

    That is called being an excellent teammate.

    I wonder how many teams in the country have a scout team that can kick the butt of the starters using plays they just learned that day? Bad for this year, fantastic for next year.

    I'd like to know who on the Scout team is dominating which of the starters.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    I am glad to hear that he proactively talks with them about sitting out and next season. He is involving them with the team and not just waiting until next year to include them. This will help with the retention of these players.

    It is almost a stock quote from CFH, since that's almost word-for-word what he says every time they're brought up, it's a great quote every time.


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

    Word, we don't need to turn into the iowa football program at this point, we have a good shot to make some noise next year, hell maybe even this year if we can play as good as we can

    We just keep talking to them. I bring those guys into my office a lot and just talk about how quickly this season is going. We’ve already played a third of our games. Next season will be here before they know it. Those guys will be out there playing and they see how much fun our guys are having right now. We talk about how those guys are the future of our program. They are excited about what they are doing right now but obviously, they are more excited about getting on the court next season.

    I really liked this. Good to see Fred not leaving them out and keep reinforcing the point to their face on how special they are and that their turn is just around the corner.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    Royce White should keep the beard. We could have slot of fun with that. Beard Night anyone?

    Royce=JVB/Godfrey?
    Allen=DG?
    Babb=SC(probably a toss)

    True! We have had enough drama in the past two years to fill a lifetime!

    It's even cooler to hear this when you think about how White, and to a lesser extent Allen, were regarded as problem players or bad teammates. It's like Fred is some sort of magic anti-McD.
