    Hi, I'm Fred Hoiberg

    I played basketball in the NBA and have spent the last several seasons as the Vice President of Basketball Operations for the Timberwolves. I know what an NBA player looks like and what it takes to be an NBA player. You want to get to the league? I can help you get there. How would you like to come play for me and the Cyclones?


    Could you say "no" to that when this guy is the one saying it to you? Forget about it!

    Pretty hard to say no to that... Impossible to say no to if you brought Carrie along too...

    Think about it.
    Hoiberg - NBA player
    Grayer - NBA player
    Nurse - NBA development
    Otz - Proven recruiter

    Alot to sell to future and current players.

    I get the feeling you would never share Carrie with others though, just lock her up in a windowless basement somewhere, jerk.

    If who is saying it looks like who is your face picture, I would play basketball in Antarctica!

    Ya looking at this, the only problem is no college coaching experience, but I think that The Mayor will definitely be able to learn on the fly and the staff can get the guys to play hard and together.

    Well I think I spoke too soon anyway. Looks like they may not be staying.

    "Dear recruit: I've developed multiple high school basketball players into NBA level talent. Along the way, my teams have experienced rich success at the conference and NCAA levels. We've done a lot of winning--won conference titles and NCAA championships. You want to play in college, win games, and get in the league? I've done it for kids before. Many times. That new guy in Ames basically has no coaching experience and hasn't won a game as a head coach. During his tenure in the T-Wolves front office, they won about 30% of their games."

    Nice! But what does that coach look like

    Seriously though we will be able to get the attention of some nice recruits because of Fred. There is no question about that. The only question is what can he do with them?

Furthermore, check out their fanbase--go to cyclonefanatic.com. Their fans wouldn't be happy if they hired Tom Izzo for free and he won 8 straight national championships. I mean, they just hired a hometown guy who is nothing but a class act and yet they come on the internet and poop all over the hire. You really want to play there? They'll turn on you in second."
    Fixed.

    There is "no question"? How do you figure? FH was a star at ISU before most recruits were born and then had a journeyman-like NBA career. I would guess recruits would have almost no idea who Fred Hoiberg is.
