    Who were the other canidates? At 16-16 I would think there would be somebody else with more success. Not that I don't think that Fred did a good job but the team also didn't rock the world either.

    This year was nothing short of amazing given the total rebuilding effort. Fred did have a few very solid kids to build off of, but even there, I think he helped take them to the next level too.

    I"m sure it is meant as a coach who is in their first year as a head coach ever. Which i'm assuming the list may not be all that impressive.

    Not saying that Fred won it because of no competition but when you consider who he had coming back and still finished 500 in the big 12 in your first year is no small feat.

    I think you are right, since Chris Mack of Xavier won the honor last year - his first season as a Head Coach.

    I don't think there were any other major conference schools with new head coaches with no previous head coaching experience. There's probably more rookie head coaches out there, but these are the ones I could come up with.

    BJ Hill - Northern Colorado - made the NCAA tournament
    Danny Hurley- Wagner
    Tom Herrion - Marshall
    Billy Donlan - Wright St
    Mo Cassara - Hofstra

    I don't know, lot of factors working in Fred's favor here:

    1. "Rookie" in the true sense of the word. No experience coaching at the Jr. High, High School, AAU, JuCo, D3, mid-major or high level D1 level before he took over.

    2. ISU is a "name" school in basketball. Not at the level of a Gonzaga or Butler right now, but we have been on the radar before.

    3. Fred was hired late in the spring and had to extinguish McD's "dumpster fire" before he could start recruiting his own players.

    4. At a program where transfers OUT were as numerous as PAULA arrests at the Ped Mall in Iowa City, Fred flipped ISU from an outgoing transfer school to an incoming transfer school. He lost a couple players during the season, but none of them played significant minutes.

    5. Fred's got a golden image. That helps with this sort of award.

    6. If getting to .500 in the Big 12 isn't a big deal, why couldn't our last $1mil/year coach accomplish it once in four years? Fred's already climbed that mountain his first year in coaching.

    That's my point. Fred jumped in to the Big 12 as a rookie coach while others jumped into smaller conferences. That alone would help him out since he did have a respectable year. Now if they had on 4-28 then it would have been a different story.

    I'm a Fred supporter but just looking at that list I would pick Hill over Fred.

    It doesn't hurt that the editor is an ISU alum.
