    Will CFH's approach become a new trend?

    Given the amazing turn around of the Cyclone BBall program, will other schools be following Hoiberg's formula for success? It makes perfect sense, fill in short term gaps with known performers while you build a base with great recruiting. Recruiting is much easier once you have a team that has demonstrated you'll be going dancing.

    Re: Will CFH's approach become a new trend?

    In a way I think Fred's situation was kind of special due to the fact that he had already had a job in the front office of an NBA team and that helped him lure in all of this talent better than an average coach could have done... So I'd say it's going to end up being an exception instead of a trend

    I'm sure someone else will try it an have it blow up their face. Fred had unlimited capital with fans. If this season was a train wreck, he knew he wouldn't be immediately fired.

    I'm not really sure it's a Hoiberg formula. It's just easier said than done. CFH has sure made it look easy.

    Agree. As crazy as it may sound, I think Hoiberg has had his own coaching strategy ever since he retired from the NBA. Not many people can take 6 transfers (including next years 2) and keep them out of trouble with the media. Plus, it can be argued that his passion for Iowa State is more than any other coach for any other team.

    I doubt we'll see anything like that for a while. Perfect storm situation. Not many people have that bare of a roster to even attempt it.

    Re: Will CFH's approach become a new trend?

    For 2nd year coaching (at any level)... it is truly amazing. This season was a lot of fun and I look forward to many more. Great combo of passion and intelligence. He has a BBall IQ that's off the charts.

    How could it not work? Fred just applied logic.

    We all saw the results of the "transfer out" program of McD. Only makes sense that a "transfer in" approach would yield opposite results.

    Re: Will CFH's approach become a new trend?

    Imo, this wasnt as big of gamble as it would be at most programs. I see it as, the sooner Iowa State gets on the map nationally, the sooner he starts getting top notch recruits. With us winning the way we did this year against ranked opponents and in the first round, that is seen all over the country. Getting transfers that were high quality definitely brought this team back in the national spotlight.

    I think the job Freddie did in evaluating these guys, selling them on himself and his program, and getting them to buy into what he is trying to build was nothing short of brilliant. Other new coaches are a lot less likely to have the amount of good will necessary to do this, as if it goes wrong, you could be set back a year at minimum (not to mention the effect that would have on the excitement level of a new program).

    Re: Will CFH's approach become a new trend?

    It will be used as an example and I am sure many will try. ISU was a uniquely bare cupboard so in most cases it would not be necessary to our extent. Fred has done a world class job of it, and it could really have blown up in his face so he deserves a ton of credit on checking up on these guys and keeping them engaged during the year off.

    I would guess most Coaches would want to avoid it. Not a lot of fan bases are as patient as ISU's.
