    So I drove an hour last night...

    to attend the AppleBee's Coaches Show and brought 2 copies of the men's and women's teams posters...I brought my 12 year old son to make it look like the posters would be signed for him, but needless to say, I got Fenelly's signature, but I got Doc Sadler's too. Fred was not there...I think he daughter had a district game last night..Dang it!

    Everyone is laughing at me I got Doc's signature and not CFH. I will just have to go down next week. And next Week is the last one of the season.

    I like Doc, I remember him at Nebraska, and he was a nice guy too, but it was a little surprise I had to endure.

    That is exactly what an ISU buddy of mine said too. The other one said he could have signed it, but he is a HOK fan.

    It has been interesting to see how significant a role Doc Sadler has played as a coach. Hoiberg gave Sadler credit for the gameplan for the Texas game.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Fred won't be there next week either. The men's team leaves for Baylor that day, so no Mayor on the show. Hopefully that saves you a trip!

    Yes, that does save me a trip...Anyone know where I can catch him before they travel the state for summer caravan and fan fest? Could I wait outside the Sukup's Training Facility and stalk him?

    If you do this you could get his autograph twice; once on the poster and once on the restraining order

    Re: So I drove an hour last night...

    True story: our youngest son is an alum of ISU. He was here courtesy of the USMC in a program to take him from enlisted to commissioned via a college degree & TBS (officer school). While here, he & his wife & two oldest girls had season tickets next to us for basketball. He also spent one year as a member of the Cy mascot squad. In short, he's a rabid fan of ISU & ISU MBB. After graduating & being commissioned, he was deployed to a war zone in the late fall. I e-mailed CFH, told him about our son, and asked if it was possible to have the team sign a poster for me to send to our son for Christmas...a little piece of home for his rack. CFH had every team member sign the poster (the one with them all running toward the camera, Royce in the lead), and then he signed the top. Made our day, having them do that for our son.

    Every time I have talked to him, he has been exceptionally gracious. We have some very special coaches who embody the Cyclone spirit and family mentality. I consider us very lucky.

    Hold on. You drove an hour to go sit in on the coaches show at Applebee's?

    Yes, we drove from Hampton, IA to Ames to eat at Applebee's and hang out at the coach's show....Looking back, it might have been a waste of time and gas, but it worked out that I am 50% of my goal....Laugh all you want. I did not have work on Monday so that was nice, but I did work this morning. I was home by 9:40, and the roads were OK. Hwy 3 was the worst. I-35 was just slightly covered, slowed me down just a bit, like I went 60 mph, instead of 70.

    It was a nice bit of time spent one-on-one with your son. Bonus!

    Great story....I emailed Steve Malchow to help me do this as well earlier this season, but said he could not do that due to Athletic Dept. rules...I can understand that, otherwise he would be doing that over and over. I did mention I was a school teacher and the poster with the signatures would not be used for personal gain, but to post in my classrooms to excite kids. But it did not matter. I am not sure I would have enough of a reason to email CFH for my reasons. I will try and catch him at a later point, worse case during the summer tailgate series.
