    I hope he has stopped those low class methods. Having a friend of a current player commit seems to indicate that he has. Maybe the locker room is supervised, or a new medication perhaps?

    Any player wants to be treated with more respect than a stray dog that has destroyed a garden. Even the dog would have some protection by the laws
    Somehow I new Dakota would show up in this thread. Sigh....some things never change...

    My assumption is stories of Bill's coaching horrors are over-dramatized if not melodramatic. With Bill what you see is what you get and his style is not too dissimilar from other highly successful coaches.

    Many players love BF, a few are intimidated (at first) of him, and some fall into the "average players are hard to coach" category. And when the average player doesn't live up to their dreams (fail) they blame BF and generate rumors to prop their psyche. Mr. Dakota may also be a fan of the smaller college WBB in S. Dakota and thus be a little envious of ISU WBB taking stories to tarnish our reputation.
