    I think we better get use to Fred's name popping up when these types of jobs become available.

    Can't accept that winning is more difficult than when they were cheating bigtime during their "glory days"??

    Not surprising. UCLA is on the Mt Rushmore of college basketball programs. It will be interesting to see if they can get Shaka Smart or Brad Stevens

    It's all part of the annual coaching carousel.

    Re: Ben Howland - UCLA (TO BE FIRED?)

    Why would he consider LA? He's got young kids. The state is pretty much bankrupt, economically and morally. Wouldn't want to raise a family or invest in a home there.

    Re: Ben Howland - UCLA (TO BE FIRED?)

    So, did you start this to discuss whether Hoiberg is going there, or cuz we can get some of the transfers?

    Re: Ben Howland - UCLA (TO BE FIRED?)

    Are you suggesting if they fire him, they'll come after Fred? Is that why this is in ISU BB?




    Paul Rhoads' players never quit.

    His name probably won't get mentioned, but Hoiberg should be on UCLA's list. Watch his team. That's what UCLA should be.


    I really doubt that this guy has any inside info, and I actually took that as a good thing to see your coach be named for jobs like UCLA

    So now we have to worry about Rhoads and Hoiberg being hired somewhere else?

    I highly doubt Hoiberg will leave. He's a made man in Ames and won't get that anywhere else
