    Who is the more popular coach at ISU?

    I'm sure at some point this has been asked on here, so I apologize if there is another thread on this. But, who would you say is the more popular guy in town; Paul Rhoads or Fred Hoiberg? It may be since we just got done with bball season, but I would go with Hoiberg. I think that our bball program has a higher ceiling than the football program (at this point), and being Ames' favorite son doesn't hurt either. Obviously, there is no wrong answer here though.

    Fred, just because he is from Ames.

    honestly paul and hoiberg are fairly new still. now fennely has been amazing during his coaching career here so he should really be the most popular but he isnt as highly publicized as the other two

    CPR though is from Ankeny though. kind of a weak explanation. Tough one I went CPR but it's very close. Those locker room videos put CPR over the top.

    Fred for me and it's not even close. With that said, I love CPR too...

    For most people it's CPR hands down

    Freddie has been a fixture of Cyclone sports for a couple decades, so the comparison is really unfair

    No one will ever be more popular than Fred, especially if he has success. No matter how well CPR and the football does, if the basketball team has success, Fred will always be the most popular.

    This is sort of akin to asking a parent which kid they prefer. Bogus!
    I love both CFH and CPR. Cannot choose between them.

    I love Fred just because he has us back in the tournament already and is harvesting elite talent. With CPR we still have to pray to get 6 wins and typically have one of the least talented teams in the Big 12.

    Re: Who is the more popular coach at ISU?

    I'm a basketball first kind of fan, so the fact that I even have to think about this means that Rhoads has made quite the impression.

    But Fred is Fred. If you are probably 27 or older you grew up with Fred as the face of Iowa State. Even before he became a coach he was probably the most recognizable person for Iowa State fans. He was known by first name only :)
