    Hypothetical 2020 Season

    After reading the Monday Musings today, just had a thought that I wanted to propose to you all.

    Let's say in the year 2020, after Fred finally accepts a position in the NBA as a head coach after he has won his 3rd NCAA championship for the ISU faithful (or any other situation that makes him leave for the NBA).

    Coach Otz went from an assistant at Washington to being a HC at a mid-major or less-than-desirable BCS team and is doing pretty well for himself (we'll say 5-6 years as a HC and 1 tourney appearance where his team lost as a round of 64 cinderella wanna-be).

    With this info to go off of, would Coach Otz be at the top or near the top of your list to replace Fred?

    Discuss...

    No. In that scenario we've got 3 titles and can get a LOT better hire made than that.

    Re: Hypothetical 2020 Season

    WAY too many years between now and then. We have no clue what could happen to Coach O and ISU. If ISU goes the direction we all hope, we'd need a top tier candidate. Is the above resume proposed that Coach O would have be considered a top tier coach?

    And, of course, a lot happens in other areas in the next seven years...there may be SUPER hot candidates that emerge, etc.

    Obviously, we'd be going after Mad Fran at that point.

    Was hoping to underline this more, writing the 3 championships just so nobody comes out with torches and pitchforks for me proposing Fred leaving. Same can be said with the Otz scenario, maybe he's a mid-major coach or takes over a respectable program.

    I guess I'm trying to get at, what scenarios do you guys see that would make you put him on your short list of potential replacements. Also, just like IcSyU did, point out any scenarios that would make you keep him off of it.

    I just see how much he put into the program under Fred's leadership and would like to keep him in mind personally, even if it works out that he should/would never fit back into the program or not.

    Fail -

    This scenario is extremely implausable. Obviously Coach Dreamy will have more than 3 National Championships by 2020.

    I would want Fran. He would have won 3 NIT championships in the same period, and would be showing promise for the future with all that experience.

    Re: Hypothetical 2020 Season

    I don't see Hoiberg leaving to coach anywhere. His legacy is related to being here. Perhaps he would become the NCAA and NBA Commissioner. If he leaves, I don't think it will be for money or coaching, but to have some other sort of major impact on the game.

    TJ would have to really excel in the scenario you created because he will be competing with the best of the best for our job. It would be fun to see him come back. We already have the two best "come back home" coaching stories in college sports!

    Re: Hypothetical 2020 Season

    False premise.

    1) If Fred wins a title here, the ensuing party/riot would be so large the school would get the death penalty and Ames would be under Martial Law lockdown for a decade. Titles two and three would never be allowed to happen for that reason.

    2) Otz, though great, wouldn't be the target following a NC season.

    Because it's a Monday and we're bored, also it's that time between basketball and football seasons for those of us that aren't huge baseball fans.

    If you don't like the topic after reading it, then don't comment and instead proceed to sharing your infinite knowledge on some other more deserving thread.

    Oh...and have a good day

    Re: Hypothetical 2020 Season

    I think Hoiberg will win a national title at some point for ISU, at the very least a few elite 8/final four runs. If he can keep bringing in the talent he's bringing in, I like the direction of the program and building off that momentum.

    I was initially really worried about next season with losing Babb, Lucious, Clyburn, McGee, Booker but now I'm not. I have a hard time believing that Hoiberg will ever have a truly awful year, like 14-15 win seasons. We can build around Niang and Ejim, and then the Juco guys and if Monte and Thomas are solid for freshman I think we could make a 3rd straight NCAA tourney run.
