    What is Fred like when you meet him for the first time?

    I have never met Fred and so I'm curious what kind of aura, or reaction he will create for a recruit he meets for the first time. Take out your cyclone bias (for some thats probably not possible, and thats ok), and tell me how he made you feel in his presence the first time you met him.

    If you were a recruit would you be in awe of his quiet confidence...is there any chance at all his quiet manner will work against him in recruiting? I've never ever heard anyone say a single bad thing about Freddy, so I'm guessing no...but curious to get people's input on how he affected you the first time you met him. thx!

    You hear a choir singing in the background, "ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..."
    And then you see this:

    It's crazy at first, but you get used to it.

    Actually, I've never met him before, but I can imagine.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    Coach Ho's just a nice guy. Not overly talkative like JO, not as shy as GM.

    Re: What is Fred like when you meet him for the first time?

    I met him for the first time when he was probably 11 and I was 10. It was on the baseball field. I was pitching. He blasted 2 homers off me. Then I struck him out. I've been scared of him ever since...

    It's been 20 years, but Fred was kind of quiet and humble for his accomplishments. Very likeable and I can see him being a great recruiter. He's got his values set right and comes from a great family. ISU is lucky to have him as a coach. When I heard the announcement I got a big smile on my face and thought "right on!".

    This was one of my first thoughts when I saw the thread title. I understand people being excited and all, but this is taking it just a bit too far.
