    With success is there any cance Freddy pulls a Cael?

    And bolts to a bigger budget school?

    I know we are a long, long way from having that happen, but I would be crushed to see Freddie leave here for greener pastures.

    Perhaps less chance with FH than any other potential candidate than I can think of.

    I have to believe a huge factor in this hire has to be Freddy's desire to be in Ames.

    Always a chance, but Fred's from Ames. Not sure where Cael was from, but I thought it was out of state.

    Cael was not from Ames and as beloved as Hoiberg is. Still was shocking though.

    oh for ******'s sake. Let's let him win first before we get sweaty palms over the fact that he won't sleep in our bed for the rest of our lives.

    I could see Freddy stepping down if he is successful and taking over as AD in 10 years. He's smart enough, has the executive level management, and would be able to work the $$$ out of people as an ISU legend as both player and hopefully coach.

    Cael just wanted to move closer to home.

    In a related report, people from Utah don't know how to read maps

    Re: With success is there any cance Freddy pulls a Cael?

    Cael wanted to get out of Iowa

    He wanted to go some where where nobody knows who he is

    Penn State Football dominates

    Wrestling is well down the list there below Volleyball




    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    According to Walters it would not happen and I would agree.

    Cael doesn't even really want to be a coach. It's just a paycheck.

    I agree Cael wanted the cash

    Cael was from Utah, but I think all he really wanted was to be closer to home. . . . .wait he went to Penn State. Thats the other direction . . . .

    Sounds familiar.

    I think Fred would rather be here that anywhere else otherwise he would have become a coach at another college prior to this.


    This is his Home. I mean for God sakes he is THE MAYOR of Ames


    “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...”

    Re: With success is there any cance Freddy pulls a Cael?

    Hard to believe if (and it's a big if) Hoiberg got ISU to the level where Kentucky, UNC, Kansas, UCLA, etc. wanted him, he wouldn't at least take a long listen.

    I think a lot of people look at this factor the wrong way. You want a guy who is ambitious and wants to win at the highest level. If he leaves for a better program, then he's probably done really good things for your program, leaving it in better shape than when he started. You don't want the guy who is just happy to be there.

    Just within our division is a good example of this. KSU probably knew that Huggins would leave for greener pastures when he had a good opportunity. But they are far better off now having hired a guy they thought might leave than to hire a guy they thought would never leave.

    When It was announced about Cael I felt how Michael did when he confronted Fredo for his betrayal in the Godfather II.
