    And With That Win, Fred Hoiberg...

    And With That Win, Fred Hoiberg....equals the amount of total wins Greg McDermott had at ISU, in over one less season.

    Sorry I had to do it, but thought it was pretty interesting. Here's to many more years of success. I <3 Hoiberg.

    McDermott had the decency to leave on his own. I appreciate that he did.

    I wish there was a way to leave McDermott's negatives out of this, but it is a great stat. Congrats to Fred, and congrate to Greg for finding a better fit for him. Wish him the best.

    Also tied with 4 of the last 5 coaches, including Johnny, with 2 winning records in conference. It took Johnny 14 years. The fifth had zero BTW

    Greg did his best and things just didn't work out. People need to leave him be.

    Re: And With That Win, Fred Hoiberg...

    I was as critical as anyone of McDermott, but it was obvious he was a good guy, just a bad fit for ISU. Nothing broke his way, and it does not surprise me he is doing well at Creighton.

    Fred >>>>>> McDermott

    I'm jealous of Greg McDermott. I've never seen someone get more mileage out of the "he's a nice guy" card.

    Re: And With That Win, Fred Hoiberg...

    I don't know why people think he was such a nice guy. He must not have been that great or that many players wouldn't have left. The only reason he is doing anything at Creighton is because of his son.

    Re: And With That Win, Fred Hoiberg...

    I truley believe that Fred will take us to heights we have never seen. His style will bring the kids in. How could you not want to run and gun? What is most uncanny is his ability to mold these kids who havn't played together that much into really nice teams. This is why I am confident next year as well I think we will surprise ourselves. Fred seems to have that ability to be flexible and to fit a sytem to his talent. I wouldn't be a bit surprised to slow it down next year and play D with the 3 ball as a reduced portion of the offense.

    This was one reason why McDermott failed, he wasn't flexible and he couldn't seem to recruit the mid-level guys. Sure he had guys like Brackins, Garrett and Wes johnson but they played alongside of Sean Haluska/Dominque Buckley type mid major players that were liabilities. Bubu would school those guys.

    Yes. Fred is some kind of coaching freak of nature. He just knows how to teach, lead, motivate, and mold teams. It's just phenomenal, because he should not be this good this early.

    Except that he's Fred Hoiberg, and Fred never fails.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Fred to be on w/ Freddie Coleman (ESPN radio) at approx 2210.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    So much for the high road. I'll say it, he's a dinkus.
