    Question Can Fred go OFF?

    I remember great times when Orr stomped his foot got in the face of the officials with choice language when the call went the wrong way, and we all loved it, and yelled for more.

    I remember LE doing much of the same with even more colorful language. I loved every second of that snarl on the sidelines that Larry patented as his own.

    And even Tim could muster up enough fire, removing his jacket and grasping tightly that program, play list, or what ever it was, rolled up in his hand.

    But, Fred? I just can't picture him going off at the refs with the same colorful language and action. And maybe he doesn't have to, but then again, any reaction might be better than the dead pan look with arms crossed that was so much Mac.

    What do you think?

    Yes, when it needs to happen.

    What about his heart problem and the need to not stress himself?

    All guys who are passionate about their sport will go off if they need it.

    Good point. Is that still a big problem or mostly fixed?

    He has a permanent pacemaker. I'm sure it's a concern, but he's had it 3 years now, so should theoretically know how far he can push himself.

    Re: Can Fred go OFF?

    Pacemaker or no, Fred has the most stoic personality I've ever seen. I bet he won't get a T in his entire career as ISU's coach.

    It is a concern. And he does need to take it easy. The surgical repair was successful. Article about Fred's condition: Aneurysm of sinus of Valsalva - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Re: Can Fred go OFF?

    Why is this so important to people??? I think there are many qualities I'd look for in a coach before the ability to cuss at a referee.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Can Fred go OFF?

    I think Fred is an intense competitor, and I think he will let the refs know in clear fashion if he doesn't feel like he's getting the calls.

    The last time Fred Hoiberg stomped his foot there was a tsunami in the Indian Ocean.


    By the way can we get Hoiberg added to the CF spell check? wtf

    Re: Can Fred go OFF?

    I had several classes with Fred and knew his parents pretty well, trust me when he gets fired up he will get his point across. His language selection won't get as bleeped out as Larry's or Johnny's, but he will light a fire.


    At first I was not very excited about this hire, but I am stoked after thinking about it for a while.

    WELCOME HOME FREDDIE!!!!!!!!!!!
