    Hoiberg's Post Game Comments

    You know one thing, among many, I really enjoy about Hoiberg: his positive post game comments about his players.

    Other coaches often complain (Huggins and Boeheim come to mind) about their players and blame the loss on them, but I've never read a comment where Hoiberg has done that. He always focuses on the positives and gives credit to the other team.

    These Cyclones are student-athletes after all and they don't get paid millions for what they do. I appreciate that Hoiberg doesn't gripe about them.

    I agree, I can't remember a coach that I have seen that gives a smarter, and better interview than Fred. Let's face it, he was born for this job.

    Re: Hoiberg's Post Game Comments

    I can't understand not wanting to play for Hoiberg. He treats his players like adults and they usually respond by playing hard and smart for him.

    I don't want this to get into a McDermott ******* match, but I remember him talking about guys and taking the shot with the best pecentage. And while sometimes it drives me crazy when someone who isn't hot takes a tough shot and misses and I think why in the hell did they shoot that. I do love the fact that Hoiberg never discourages his guys from shooting (at least in public). He's got their back.
