    Hoiberg the coach; next season

    I know next to zip about basketball X's and O's. But, I thought it strange, when CFH was hired that he required a mentor and Bobby Lutz was hired for that role. How could someone, I thought, play the game 10 seasons in the NBA while being a floor leader and working with fine coaches not know the game inside and out? Do most of us agree that CFH can coach the game of basketball? With the guys coming back next season, what roles will the rookies likely play? What kind of difference might Korie Lucious make to ISU performance? What role might Georges Niang play? Are White and Niang likely to play much at the same time?

    Re: Hoiberg the coach; next season

    Never hurts to have a coach with 399 career wins sitting on the bench next to you. Coaching isn't only about x's and o's. You have to be able to make game plans. You have to understand motivating players. You have to know when/what adjustments to make. How to run practice. Position coaches. Offense/defense coaches. I'm sure I'm still forgetting a ton.

    Re: Hoiberg the coach; next season

    That's a lot of questions for one thread.

    How could someone, I thought, play the game 10 seasons in the NBA while being a floor leader and working with fine coaches not know the game inside and out?
    I think getting Lutz was more about running practices and how to prepare for games as a coach. Hoiberg didn't have to approach the game like a coach until last year.

    Do most of us agree that CFH can coach the game of basketball?
    Probably.

    With the guys coming back next season, what roles will the rookies likely play?
    Similar to the freshman this year I would expect.

    What kind of difference might Korie Lucious make to ISU performance?
    If he's a legitimate point guard - A positive difference.

    What role might Georges Niang play?
    Probably about like Percy's at the beginning of the year. Then Hoiberg can evaluate from there.

    Are White and Niang likely to play much at the same time?
    Their playing styles don't really conflict with other playing styles, so if Niang is ready to play influential minutes, yes they will play together.

    Re: Hoiberg the coach; next season

    I posted this in another thread, but seems to fit here too.

    What I loved was the little stat that we're best in the nation in terms of getting points out of timeouts. For everyone thinking that this ship was sinking because Bobby Lutz is no longer here and he did all the "coaching" I think that little stat was a nice reminder that Fred knows a thing or two about "Xs and Os".

    Re: Hoiberg the coach; next season

    I believe that Hoiberg said that Lutz really taught him about everything that is encompassed by being a head coach, things on and off the court.

    That and, yeah, Lutz is a good coach in his own right.

    Re: Hoiberg the coach; next season

    To add on to what others have said: Fred knows basketball as well as anyone out there. But being a Head Coach involves many things that are outside of the game - dealing with the media, managing a coaching staff, recruiting and NCAA compliance, promoting the program to boosters, and on and on...

    I was hoping Lutz would be here for 3+ years, but it appears Fred has this program under control now.

    I think Lutz is a good coach and helped Fred a lot his first year. Bottom line is that Fred is a good learner and is a good coach that will only get better. Hilton Magic is Back.

    Re: Hoiberg the coach; next season

    Your post is sort of all over the map so I'm not 100% sure on what it is that you're asking, but playing and coaching are quite different. The bottom line is that success in one doesn't automatically equate to success in the other. So far, for how little experience Fred has coaching, I think it's safe to say he's doing a very good job.

    This team has progressed a great deal in the last month.

    Re: Hoiberg the coach; next season

    Hoiberg has had a front row seat to some of the brightest minds in basketball: Orr, Floyd, Eustachy, Larry Brown, Larry Bird, Kevin Mchale, etc. Lutz was a great hire that allowed Fred the freedom to put the pieces to what we are witnessing now and will in the future. I would also put Bobby Lutz on that list of great mentors.

    Get used to winning...
