    Iowa trolls on CF don't like the Mayor!

    After reading past posts of CF newcomers, it very apparent that the Hawk trolls on here don't like the Hoiberg hire. I wonder why that is? For Cyclone fans, I don't have a problem with disagreements. That is part of being a fan.

    (this does not include those who are openly Hawk fans)

    Re: Iowa trolls on CF don't like the Mayor!

    Because nobody else would make this hire? I understand why some are happy with this hire, but please try to understand why others would be at the very least concerned.

    When someone opened up a thread about bringing in the Mayor as our coach a couple weeks ago, almost EVERYONE bashed the idea, saying it was the worst idea ever. Now that it happens, a lot have downed the kool-aid and are now going so far as to call those who are concerned about this 'hawk troll's'. Get real.

    There is only one way to flush out hawkeye trolls, post a thread about how much you love Affliction and Tapout clothing and see who agrees with you. Those who do= hawk fans.

    Most Hawk fans I know are thrilled with this hire, this is not a good thing.

    Re: Iowa trolls on CF don't like the Mayor!

    Read the negative posts of "prospects" then look at their past posts. It's easy to see who is a Cyclone and who isn't. I have no problem with honest disagreement with Cyclones.

    This is really unfair. I'm as positive as anyone about this hire, but i certainly understand where the doubters are coming from. The only ones you can hate on are the ones saying they are done with ISU MBB because of it. This is exactly why we were all so divided when GMac was here.... people who didn't believe in his leadership were often called non-fans.

    Just because some people aren't as ecstatic as others, does not make them closet "hawk fans"

    Re: Iowa trolls on CF don't like the Mayor!

    my guess is that many fans never thought JP would have the balls to hire an inexperienced person with a big ISU name. So, they blew it off as a bad idea. Then, Pollard did it. He hired Fred Hoiberg! WTF? Does it make sense? It has to! How can you fire Fred Hoiberg from ISU? He better succeed. He's too loved to think about failure, and ISU fans support their coaches until they prove themselves poor. McDermott has proven that at ISU. Hoiberg has yet to prove anything. So why not support him?

    I have had many of my d-bag Hawk friends "congratulate" me on the hire this = they think Freddy will fail.

    I'm concerned about the lack of experience but in all honesty anyone within our budget at this time was a reach or a risk so why not reach for someone that fans will love.

    He may have never coached but with the fan support that he will have I think Hilton Magic will be back before long. The first few years will be brutal to watch but if he can relate to the players and keep them here then that is the first step in the right direction. Winning is the next step, and really the only one that matters in the end.


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”

    Nice...

    I am sure Jon Miller is happy with this hire. How many of you made fun of Iowa for considering BJ Armstrong? This is pretty much the same hire.

    I am reserving judgement on this hire right now. There is nothing logically that suggests this is a good hire. No experience recruiting or coaching on any level. I guess I am hoping Pollard gets an 'ace on the river'. (poker reference for those that do not know)

    Please go look at the immediate reaction of current players and recruits/signees. That right there should tell you a lot.

    You put this on a tee, so I'll ask why do you have d-bag hawk friends? And isn't that redundant?
