    Larry Bird on Hoiberg

    "Freddie knows the game," Bird said. "I'm sure he picked up a lot of stuff over the years from different people. College is different from the NBA, but I'm sure he'll do a great job."

    Well if you had any doubts there is nothing like getting endorsed by Bird.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Larry Bird on Hoiberg

    The Bird man knows Fred, and he knows he's a winner. I like the comment from the new recruit when he said Fred knows what it takes to get to the NBA, and I have aspirations to get there. He also said he met Fred once and he's already a special dude in my life. We need recruits like that. Said he also had offers from Stanford, Rice, Houston, Arkansas and Vanderbilt, not a bad group.

    Duh, Bird doesn't know what he's talking about. I'd much rather pay attention to Matt Perualt than one of the greatest basketball players of all time.

    Larry Bird, thank you for making me feel even better about the coaching hire at Iow State.

    If its one thing Bird knows - its coaching and recruiting talent. I mean just LOOK at the Pacers! Bird was a great player, but I think we need to leave it there.

    Re: Larry Bird on Hoiberg

    I like the fact ISU BB is getting attention in places other than Iowa. This hire seem to be reaching out to the whole BB community. Being well connected is a good thing.
