    Fred's coaching style..

    This has been on my mind for a while, but how will Fred coach? He seems like he is a calm and collected type of guy. Do you think he will ever get fired up and yell at all? I just cant see him yelling, but thats just me. I'm sure he will get his point across if he doesnt agree with something. Is that also a problem with his heart condition? I am just kind of curious.

    Re: Fred's coaching style..

    I don't think anyone can answer that question until we actually see him coach his first game. It will be interesting to see what kind of intensity he brings to the sidelines.

    Re: Fred's coaching style..

    Those who thought GMac wasn't animated enough on the sideline are not going to be happy with Fred. He will be less animated than GMac IMO.

    Fred doesn't get worked up about much.

    Re: Fred's coaching style..

    I want to see some type of energy from the coaches. If Freddy isn't going to do it and would rather be the calm collective one, fine. That's great.

    But he NEEDS to have an assistant or 2 that get animated, yell at guys when they make mistakes, give them the glory when they make a good play and have the pick me up type of attitude and intensity!

    Re: Fred's coaching style..

    Of the ISU coaches that have been here over the last 30 years, I think Fred's style will be most similar to Tim Floyds. He'll be pretty even keel and level headed most of the time. I always thought Tim thought pretty well on his feet and I think Fred will too. Floyd was not afraid to bark and got some technicals. Not sure if we'll see that out of Fred or not.

    Re: Fred's coaching style..

    In one of his interviews he mentioned not showing up players at time outs and mentioned I believe how McHale handled players by talking to them in the locker room and not in front of the fans. I believe he will be very calm during coaching. I would like to see more energy, but don't believe that's his character.

    GMAC constantly was yelling and walking and stomping up and down the bench. No one ever noticed. He did what he was allowed to do with out getting a Technical. He only got one, and it was one too many. I do not want a coach that gets a technical unless one of he is standing up for one of his players or one of his players are going to get hurt and the refs will do nothing about it. I'm just repeating what ISUno1fan is saying, but it needs to be repeated.

    Re: Fred's coaching style..

    I want to say he wants to keep his calm and relaxed character that he had when he played here. Possibly getting fired up when Hilton is quiet and he thinks he needs to spark something. I really think he will want to keep his reputation that hes had here. That just kind of came to me.

    I am a little concerned about this. I think the crowd takes the lead from the coach as much as from the team.

    The need to have a animated coach to be successful is a bunch of BS.

    Well then explain Kirk Ferenz, or a better example Lute Olsen?

    You mean like the Cameron Crazies or the Izzone? I don't think either of those coaches are all that animated and there crowds seem to do pretty well.

    Or so I have read.

    Re: Fred's coaching style..

    I don't necessarily agree with the assertion about crowd energy feeding off of a head coach's energy . . . but the examples of Ferentz and Lute Olson are a little off.

    Football is a different animal. A head football coach isn't as visible / easily identifiable on the sidelines as a basketball coach. Lute Olson was plenty animated. It may have been in a pompous way, but he was animated.

    Re: Fred's coaching style..

    I have never understood this. Greg was plenty animated, he just wasn't freaking out at the drop of a hat like some others we have had. If Greg would have won, people would have thought he was plenty animated.

    I could care less how Freddie looks on the sidelines, if he recruits good players, gets them to stay and play their guts out, everything will be fine.
