    Funny Read on Hoiberg Hire

    Sorry if this has already been posted (please delete/merge if it has...I haven't been able to follow the site today), but my friend relayed this article to me about the hire of Hoiberg to the Iowa Cyclones football team. Enjoy!

    Re: Funny Read on Hoiberg Hire

    Was this written in English by a non-native speaker, translated to Japanese by a computer, and then translated back to English by a non-native speaker? That is the only way to explain that "article".

    I can't tell if this is a joke or not. I almost want to assume to give this person the benefit of the doubt, before assuming that they are the worst reporter EVER!

    I'm guessing India. Definitely a former British colony. I can image a Premier League announcer reading the article as written.

    Re: Funny Read on Hoiberg Hire

    Thanks for sharing - definitely worth a chuckle. There are several gems in there...

    The decision of Greg McDermott to leave the team and join the Creightons...
