    Recruiting Pitch?

    Anyone think this is a recruiting pitch? I know Royce has a family to take care of, but maybe Fred told him to go because it helps Fred in the long run. It helps telling recruits *Cough Pelle Cough* "Hey I had a kid come in and play one year and he went Pro." Something to ponder....

    Re: Recruiting Pitch?

    That would mean Hoiberg was putting his own desires ahead of the needs of one of his players and using him to further his own career. I don't buy it. WTF are you smoking today?

    Coach Cal's been doing it for years now. What makes you think Fred won't do that? Coaches are going to be coaches.

    There obviously is a recruiting angle that gets played, but believe it works in the reverse that you suggested.

    Re: Recruiting Pitch?

    Fred tells his recruits this:

    "Listen, I know the years before I coached were ugly and, frankly, made ISU look bad. But I'm in the drivers seat now and taking us all the way. Ames is the place to be. It's Cyclone Fanatics homeland, has Hilton Magic, and most importantly, Hickory Park. Now, sign on the dotted line, or I'll go put a different player in the NBA."

    So is you having sex. But neither has happened and doubt either will.

    Training dummies in the academy don't count either.
