    Fred on the "hot seat"?

    If things continue to spiral out of contol (which they have over the last 5 months.) will Fred be on the "hot seat" with the ISU administration? I mean, really tell me how many positive things are you hearing about this program? Everyone here wants to jump on the bandwagon of how this program is heading in the right direction because we have open door policy to transfers. We have three current members of our roster who were kicked off a major division 1 program. We have 2 guys that have just been dismissed for drug abuse and later released from the team. We have a young member of this team that has been arrested twice, but has not been kicked off. We hire an assistant coach who has been picked up twice for DUI, one after signing his coaching contract here. When Fred took over the program one of his quotes was that he was going to win "The Right Way." I for one don't like the way this program is looking right now. I do undertsand that not all of this is Coach Hoiberg's fault or should be blamed, but I certainly think that he needs to be held accountable for what is happening of late..... Please discuss!

    Re: Fred on the "hot seat"?

    And just how many of the players that have gotten in trouble been among Hoiberg's transfers? I believe that number is zero. The players getting in trouble are the ones he inherited.

    Hot seat? Give me a break.

    Re: Fred on the "hot seat"?

    With the mess the men's BB program has been ever since they fired LE it's going to take years of problems before ISU has the guts to even think about firing one of their own legends. You know the saying "it's going to get worse before it gets better" probably fits our program pretty well these days, you sometimes have to take your lumps before you can rise from it.

    If Kirk Ferentz can survive all the messes he has endured with his program over the years I would think Fred will be able to do the same if he starts to bring some winning back to Hilton.

    NO. He is not on the "hot seat." Besides the last couple weeks I have heard NOTHING but possitive things about Fred and the Program.

    Or millerforrest saying Michael Jordan isn't one of the top 5 players of all time.

    Or millerforrest saying that no soccer team should be the #1 most famous sports team in the world.

    Or millerforrest......you get the idea

    Boy, we really need football to start.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Re: Fred on the "hot seat"?

    I knew these kind of posts would pop up but I didn't expect it only one year into his tenure. I guess I underestimated the dumbnesss of some people.

    If Fred Hoiberg wasn't a star at ISU everyone would be calling for his head, you all know it.

    Re: Fred on the "hot seat"?

    Wow every program in the country has these problems. Hot Seat??? What planet are you from. You obviously don't know Hoiberg and what he has meant for ISU. Hoiber could go OJ Simpson and we would rationalize keeping him.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.
