    ...."Mr. Hoiberg's running start is raising a provocative question for college basketball: is coaching experience necessary?...."


    Sorry CFers, I'm thoroughly convinced recruiting / seniority is vastly more important vs coaching. It's the Horse, not the Jockey. Bill Self can lose 60% of his scoring and rebounding and still have a #3-ranked team with the newcomers like Selby.

    Wayne Morgan would have been very successful and yet Larry hasn't gotten his So Miss team into the NIT / Loser Tournament.....Hummmmmm....

    ....let the flames begin....

    "Not only was he named the state's Mr. Basketball after leading Ames High School to a championship in 1991, he was the quarterback of his high school football team."

    For those who don't know, he wasn't just the QB of AHS, he was the Player of the Year in football in the state of Iowa.

    We'll have something special with men's basketball at Iowa State in a couple years. Heck, this year we have a team that plays hard - and if they get a few breaks we could see them do something too!

    Actually, per the NYT article:

    "A few years later, he led Ames High School to the 1991 state basketball title, then turned down a football scholarship to Nebraska (he was a quarterback) to play basketball for the Cyclones."

    He would have many options as a D1 QB if that was the direction he wanted, including Nebraska and Stanford.

    I never knew that. I think that just solidifies his icon-like status.

    You lost me with Wayne Morgan would have been very successful. His undiscipline teams which continually got worse proves coaching also matters. You need the horses and the rider.
