    A little emotion from Fred

    Does anyone think that Fred should show a little emotion? I know this has been touched on here and there but I can hardly stand to watch him acting like we're up by 20. Some will say it's not his style but it sure frustrates the heck out of me. Oh well. Go. clones

    Re: A little emotion from Fred

    I would like Fred to go all Fran on the players every now and then.

    Re: A little emotion from Fred

    It's not just not his coaching style, it's not who he is. He isn't that type of coach. He goes absolutely ape **** on the players in practice, but not on the court. He likes presenting himself to the public in a professional manner.

    Re: A little emotion from Fred

    I don't think he can with his heart condition.

    Re: A little emotion from Fred

    I have always loved that Fred is NOT Fran and totally goes banana sandwich everytime 1 little thing doesn't go his way but sometimes 20 year-old kids need a good yelling at...


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Re: A little emotion from Fred

    Maybe he can't/shouldn't go too crazy due to his pacemaker and heart condition.

    Re: A little emotion from Fred

    He also avoids outbursts due to his heart condition. I think with that concern, he just came into the gig having decided that's the attitude he's going to carry for both his health and other reasons.

    Re: A little emotion from Fred

    I would like Fred to sit Korie and Clyburn down for the rest of the game when they play lackadaisical and selfish. We might lose but at least the other players in there would pay with some heart.

    KL and Clyburn need a good kick in the ***.

    Re: A little emotion from Fred

    Fred is being out coached too, how about some press to jump start things? Reign in the 3s some. Push the ball after made baskets. Common Fred, you can't just game plan for the big ones

    Re: A little emotion from Fred

    There are a lot of things to complain about tonight but in my opinion this is definitely not one of them.

    Re: A little emotion from Fred

    I know Fred can't get too worked up, but our guys needed a Larry Eustachy style screaming at tonight. That's the most pathetic effort I've seen Hoiberg's teams put forward.

    I would rather the players show us some emotion.
