    Re: BLOG: Hoiberg can adapt to a changing landscape

    Glance outside. It sure looks like hoops season to me.
    I would trade a whole summer for it to be fall again if we could start BB season in less than a month. This waiting business is for the birds!

    Interesting bit about the women's team using the 'Niang' strategy on their sets. Could be fun!

    Re: BLOG: Hoiberg can adapt to a changing landscape

    The only thing that surprised me in the article was Billy being quoted as saying Hal isn't athletic. I look at her and think she is the most athletic player on the women's team. She is shifty, works angles well, has a quick first step, and has a non-stop motor.

    Is Hoiberg adapting to the changing landscape, or did Hoiberg change the landscape?

    Fred didn't cause 800 transfers in two years. GMAC started that. It's clear that ISU is the hub of the transfer universe.

    Not worried about adapting when our guy led the movement


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    A little of both.

    I don't mean to downplay Fred's success with transfers but he had little choice when he took over the program. He only had like 3 or 4 schollie players IIRC and instead of reaching on leftover HS or JUCO prospects, he seized an opportunity to recruit and sign an inordinately high number of available, talented transfers from the B10 and elsewhere. While that was a smart move on his part, what Fred should really be applauded for, as Matt pointed out, was molding that group of "diverse" personalities and talents into very good teams for two consecutive seasons even with a significant % of turnover between those two teams. Given what Royce has gone through since he was drafted and before he arrived in Ames, Fred should be the subject of coaching and psychological documentaries for how he successfully handled and managed Royce during the two years he was in Ames.

    Billy didn't say she wasn't athletic, he said she isn't "super-athletic".

    I agree with you that she is very athletic for her size and its one of her strengths.

    Bill and the staff is very wise to study how Fred used Niang at the 5 this past season because I think Hallie C will be mostly a 5 this upcoming season by default and it will enable Bill to put his five best players on the court.
