    3 Seed w Hoiberg

    I know I give people **** around here and what not, but what ISU is doing in basketball is something special. Fred Hoiberg - that guy is like-able. And I don't mean from a fan perspective. I mean, you fans love him - hell, I love the guy, but I'm talking players. They LOVE him. Good. He is awesome.

    Good job beating Baylor. Didn't get to watch the game. I know I'm supposed to hate ISU but I find myself cheering for them and after all they are in a different conference so I really don't care. Go win the B12 tourney and make a run in the tourney. I'm rooting for you. Fun team to watch.

    I'm gonna go throw up now.

    I think this seals the Fred vs Fran debate I can't imagine ever rooting for Fran. Likeable vs whiny.

    While I don't think it's fair to compare the two because Fred played at ISU and IMO was the perfect hire, I think Fran is awesome. He gives Iowa someone who cares. I love watching Iowa basketball, and Fran is making it fun again. You say he whines, I say he cares. It's a difference of opinion, but we aren't talking Iowa here. We are talking ISU.

    Fred Hoiberg is a cool dude.

    I think this goes without saying.

    Fran obviously has Iowa heading in the right direction. I've tried, at times, to root for them. It's very difficult.

    I suppose some would have mistaken Johnny Orr's passion for 'whining' (back in the day) when he was building a program at ISU. Fran's just forging a new culture at Iowa and there's nothing wrong with that. I sincerely hope Fran gets it turned around and maybe in the future this state can have four solid BB programs and the mythical state championship will really means something.

    Re: 3 Seed w Hoiberg

    Yeah, it only took Fred two years to do what McDoormat would never have done at ISU. I have to admit I was a little concerned about how much coaching experience we had coming in to the season and was pretty down after the Drake debacle. I would love to have that game back now, but regardless, we're going to be dancing and possibly looking at a #6 seed with a win in K.C.

    Cheer

    I actually like Fran and his passion. Who wouldn't want that for their team. He did something NO ONE has been able to do and make a game vs Wisconsin enjoyable to watch. Usually it's more exciting to watch paint dry.
