    Great in Timeouts?

    I kind of laugh at that one. ISU probably spends the least amount of time getting coached during timeouts. It's almost comical, the ISU players are on the court and waiting for the timeout to end long before the horn blows. Conversely, most other teams are still being coached & the ref has to break the huddle.

    Makes me wonder if most coaches aren't talking too much during timeouts. Cudos to Fred for having his own style and letting his players DO without overthinking things.

    Fran tweeted about COY candidates in Big 12. Two he was talking about for national were probably Haith and Self.

    Then he tweeted about FH being a NBA coach some day.

    Georges responded to him that no.......FH had to stick around for the 2012 guys coming in.

    Fran responded to Georges that it would be after he graduated.

    Then Fran sent to Georges that he was going to a good place in ISU, and he would love FH.

    Only fred knows what's going through fred's mind, but he's where he's wanted to be, making an amount that will keep you more than comfortable in ames, and has a job security here both because of who he is (giving him extra time in any down periods) and because of what he's already done in 2 years. It will be interesting though. Market value wise i believe we underpaid for a coach, getting a discount because of his lack of coaching experience. After making the tourney in 2 years, if CFH wanted it to, i would say it would be fair for that discount to go away. Or, maybe fred goes the CPR route, asking for commitments for other things that would help the program (assistants $$, hilton work, etc)

    And where have all the fear mongers and chicken littles been on this one? I am starting to lose respect for them no matter how ridiculous this sounds.

    With out really looking into it too much.....it seems to me that College Head Coaches jumping to the NBA head coaching job don't seem to fare all that well. Seems NBA head coaches that fare better come from the NBA assistant ranks. Just a thought.
