    Open up the check book, Mr. Pollard

    Lets get Fred a raise. I think 3 mil a year sounds fair.

    Self gets 3mil. Even Barnes gets 2.2 mil.

    Lock him up now and end the NBA speculation. No more home town discounts.

    Hoiberg is ISU Basketball.

    No question. No big 12 coach (Except maybe Self) should be making more than Fred.

    This has been said in other threads but I don't think money is an issue with Fred. I can't see him leaving for a paycheck. With that said, I totally agree, give him a raise to show you appreciate what he's building here.
    Oh and maybe try to up that NBA buyout..

    Leave it up to him. If he wants a raise, give it to him. If he wants his assistants to have it, that works too. Not sure he really wants more money if it would be better spent somewhere else in the program.

    This. Just make sure to give him whatever he requests.

    Let Fred decide this one - if he wants the money, pay the man. If he wants the money to go to his assistants, pay them. Whatever Fred wants, give it to him. If Fred wants his name on the court, put it there. ISU is a PROGRAM now, and Fred is responsible for it.

    Re: Open up the check book, Mr. Pollard

    I did the math. By my count we had 16 home games this year with almost every game being a sellout (lay off me I'm drunk and too lazy to look up exactly which games were and which games were not a sellout and my guess would be tickets are only going to be harder to get going forward). Hilton holds 14,384. Raise the price of each ticket by 4 or 5 bucks and you easily have the money to pay Hoiberg an extra a million a year. I really don't think anyone is going to object to the small raise in ticket prices to keep him around. I know I wouldn't!

    Re: Open up the check book, Mr. Pollard

    Whatever we do let's just keep him here please. I do think that no matter how this season ends, Fred is enjoying coaching this team, and I think Fred can see the chance to win a championship at ISU if he stays long term... How could he not think about legacy in this situation, if we won a championship, or even get a couple of final four appearances they would probably name the entire university and every building on campus after him - and every street in Ames after him

    Obviously give fred what he wants\needs.

    And... i hope we find the money not just for Fred, but to keep Sadler around as well. He may want another HC job in the future or he might not, but until then lets lock him up here. He's clearly had a positive effect here.

    I think that I can safely say, without being too much of a homer, that Fred is one of the brilliant offensive minds in college basketball today. And one hell of an overall coach.

    I say we double or triple his bonuses if he turns down a raise.

    I'd be fine with that, but $5 per game is $100 per season and I guarantee you'd have some ticked off season ticket holders. I'll bet the cheap seats go up to $200 at least.

    I trust Fred. I trust Jamie. Hoiberg helped the program tremendously this year and he'll be rewarded for it in a big way.
