    All good news!!!

    Can't we ever back anything and hope for the best at Iowa State? If these coaches were brought up I am guessing these would be the complaints:

    Mike Krzyzewski – Too hard to spell name
    Roy Williams – Hate him because he stole HB and hated him at KU
    Billy Donovan – Can’t recruit in the Midwest
    Rick Pitino – Don’t like Italians
    Bobby Knight – Too mean
    Jim Calhoun – Too old
    John Calipari – His players are too good and leave early
    Tom Izzo – Made LE drink too much
    Lute Olson – Yuck..he was at Iowa
    Fred Hoiberg – No experience


    On and on and on and on

    All good news!!!

    Couple of Notes;

    1. The Mayor is here!!!! Fantastic hire! Gotta have people that believe in what they are selling!!

    2. For those that wanted change: u got it, don't complain... Go Buy tickets

    3. The reality, all hires are risky, but, this is the hire to wow the fan base.

    give him a chance people

    he hasn't even made his first coaching decision and everyone is already throwing him under the bus.

    it may not have been your top pic for whatever reason but its not fair to hate on him before he's even stepped foot on court as a coach.

    it will be a lot easier for him to succeed with fans cheering for him instead of against him.

    like it or not he is our new coach. embrace it and support isu

    Can't ask for anything more then a coach who wants to be a Cyclone. It's worked out great in every other sport.

    Who tossed Fred under the bus? Or are people raising some serious questions about the hire?

    Get a grip. In no way is comparing our complaining about a no experience coach to these legends a logical comparison.

    I would imagine this is Freddies dream job, not too many guys can say that, that is a huge advantage.

    have just been reading through all the responses about the hire. general consensus is that this was a bad hire (not everyone's opinion, but most).

    meant to start a new thread...oops

    Only one I can think of is PR with the football team, and that's worked out well so far. Probably worth giving Hoiberg a chance based off of that alone.

    I know its part of the web, but, geez... alot of backseat drivers, like the poster said, these types will find problems for every answer.

    give it time, if its worse (it can't be), i'll eat my words.
