    I seem to remember Nebraska, Stanford and Michigan State for football.

    Re: Hoiberg football.

    Thinking back on this, he made a fantastic choice. He may not be here today had he chosen football.

    Thats a good point. Also, I'm surprised that Walden didn't try to get him on the football team when he was at ISU. We were running the tripple option then and he probably would have been a good fit at QB. Maybe Walden did try and Fred said no because we were god awful and he would have gotten destroyed.

    Re: Hoiberg football.

    Also, it was my understanding that Fred took a good long hard look at Lute Olson's Arizona program for BB.

    or MAYBE in this alternate universe, Hoiball refers to our new offensive scheme, and CPR is an up and coming MBB coach for the clones.

    Why would there be a link? A. That's ancient history. B. Hoiberg committed early, so it was a moot point....

    I do, however. remember him playing high school ball with a crew cut...

    Re: Hoiberg football.

    Mentions his official visit to Arizona roughly halfway down.


    Hoiberg more the 'Mayor' than ever in Ames


    For those that don't want to read the whole article:

    His grandfather, Jerry Bush, had been the Nebraska basketball coach in the 1950s and 60s, and when Tom Osborne recruited the Ames High senior for football, he was floored. When Hoiberg went to Arizona on a basketball visit and found a cardboard poster on his bed covered with signatures and which read "1,000 Wildcat Fans Want Fred Hoiberg at Arizona," he was interested.

    While I was tailgating at a football game many years ago, someone brought a petition around getting signatures to encourage him to pick Iowa State. At the time I never heard of him, because I didn't follow high school sports or recruiting.
