    Least Afford to Lose: CPR or Hoiberg?

    Posted this a question for Chris' mailbag and Clonefan32 thought it might generate some interesting discussion on the forum:


    The opinion piece about how CPR should be a candidate for the Ohio State job got me to thinking... If you had to pick one, what head coach could ISU least afford to lose right now?

    CPR or Hoiberg?

    Re: Least Afford to Lose: CPR or Hoiberg?

    I would hate to lose Hoiberg but, football takes longer to build up in theory so I would say CPR. Tough decision though.

    Re: Least Afford to Lose: CPR or Hoiberg?

    That's tough. Both programs are in desperate need of stability, so any turnover would suck. I think the answer has to be Coach Fred though. Coach Fred has injected alot of life into the MBB program and has lured better talent here than we have seen in the past 5-10 years. CPR has done well, but he is a somewhat "flukey" win over Nebraska and a win over a down Texas team away from two very average seasons.

    Jamie Pollard. He is the pivot man.

    Okay, if I had to pick one, CFH if you figure the easiest way to have a run at the Big 12 title is in bball. That said, who brings in the most money is football and CPR and we will need to go bowling more often to pay the bills.


    Go with CPR unless Fred has a blast at this years NCAA.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, 3sus, Hallice, Deonte, Dustin, Abdel, Monte, Matt, and McKaT.

    CPR hands down. Coaching continuity is half the battle in BCS football.

    Re: Least Afford to Lose: CPR or Hoiberg?

    CPR and I don't think it's all that close. We have had three basketball coaches lead us to sustained success in the last 20 years. Football has not been like that and I think CPR is on the right track.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Least Afford to Lose: CPR or Hoiberg?

    IMO it's Hoiberg. It would absolutely suck to lose CPR, but short of Orr, Hoiberg IS ISU basketball. And he's not just ISU basketball, he's Ames, Iowa.

    Hoiberg. I don't have any expectations of ever consistently challenging for the B12 title in football. I think Hoiberg gives us a chance to do that in basketball.

    Re: Least Afford to Lose: CPR or Hoiberg?

    I've thought about this for 5 minutes and I honestly can't decide. Both of them are in pretty good shape job security wise if they both fail this year, so it's a draw in that aspect. I'd probably go with CPR since he has a much tougher road to win in the Big XII for football than what Fred does in basketball.

    Football is much more important than basketball...

    Re: Least Afford to Lose: CPR or Hoiberg?

    Hoiberg. No matter how important football is versus basketball, Hoiberg is the face of not only Iowa State basketball, but arguably the entire athletics department. Neither has proven much thus far, but Hoiberg has the pieces in place to have a MONSTER year. We can compete in the Big 12 in basketball. I don't think the same can be said for football.

    As far as athletic department income, there's no doubt football is more important. And, in the conference shakeups last year, Kansas wasn't in much better shape than ISU as far as finding a home. Why? Football's more important. I don't argue with basketball being personally more important to you, that's fine, just clarifying that for financial reasons, football gets what football wants.

    Seriously, I think we have a better chance for sustained success at basketball than football. I'd hate to lose either coach right now but I'd give a slight edge to losing Hoiberg being more painful.
