Does every other team in the league get to keep their NBA players also, or just us? Sure we would be better, but so would other teams. Jarrett culver left texas tech early. What about texas, can they have mo bamba and jaxson hayes back? They are both still top 25 teams even with losing players.I, for one, don't think CSP needs to go for 2 reasons, one bball and one football. We need to be fiscal tightwads due to Covid and for the contract upgrades and extensions after the upcoming football season. Doing a buyout now is not advisable.
Basketball wise CSP needs another year. Imagine this year if Horton/Haliburton/Wiggington were playing. Or imagine if Niang's junior year Georges, Monte and Naz all went pro and weren't there what kind of year it would have been.
Coaching is somewhat overrated, it's the players. CSP can get the players and without the early departures to the NBA or Covid it would be a different discussion.
Not arguing that. TJ was acting as though he was going to be head coach and recruited Nick N.Who did tj work for? Prohm doesnt get credit for solomon then. Meaning prohm has had zero highschool recruits make it to their senior year. Who did a better job recruiting highschool players if that is the case?
Ask yourself this—if you were a donor or someone with access to insider information would you tell 90% of the people on this board jack ****?I would like to know how people come up with some of there info. I have heard from people that claim to be in the know and/or claim they have good sources anything from Prohm was fired 2 weeks ago to he will be here for 2 more seasons.
I just assume that is how it opperates most places. Coach Small is Prohms lead recruiter. I imagine he does a lot of the heavy lifting when it comes to recruiting. maybe the nick n situation was different, and hoiberg was not involved and nick knew hoiberg wouldnt be coach. i dont have any insider information. I just figure most recruits are recruited by the assistant coaches first and foremost.Not arguing that. TJ was acting as though he was going to be head coach and recruited Nick N.
Was never going to happen. There is some pretty silly revisionist history on this board!Actually he has 4 guys in the pros that would be starting for us this season.
Unless Biefeldt and whatever other guys were rumored had come aboard.I thought it was more the first year. Prohm did a pretty good job rebuilding the bench his second years. Nick, Donovan, and Darrell Bowie (all in 20ish minute doses) are one of the stronger benches we've had recently.
Hoiberg left six all-stars for his first team, but that turned into five when Naz had to shut it down. I think the ceiling on that season would have dropped without Naz even had Hoiberg stuck around for one more season.
And saying Fred recruited Monte is somewhat farsicle, because he wanted to go to Sparty, Izzo didnt have room, but didnt want him at Michigan so Izzo pointed him towards Fred and ISU.Clayton Custer, I think.
I do think that monte’s class was the last time Hoiberg cared to recruit high school kids.
CW said Max Bielfeldt wanted to commit to Iowa State, but he was hesitant when we literally did not have a head coach at the time, so he moved on. He would have been nice depth behind Niang and McKay, but I think he more raises that team floor than its ceiling. That is really the only one that I can remember. We were never getting Diallo.Unless Biefeldt and whatever other guys were rumored had come aboard.
Don’t think that is completely accurate as Izzo offered Monte late but he was already committed to ISU. Nvm as it may have been MichAnd saying Fred recruited Monte is somewhat farsicle, because he wanted to go to Sparty, Izzo didnt have room, but didnt want him at Michigan so Izzo pointed him towards Fred and ISU.

Just read a story on Hawk Central that Roy Marble advised Monte Morris to attend ISU. Said some nice things about ISU, Fred Hoiberg and Barry Stephens. He told Monte Morris that the state of Iowa has been very good to Flint, MI players. I'm sure he would have pushed him to go to Iowa but said Iowa wasn't recruiting a point guard this year but still wanted him to go to a school in Iowa and pushed for ISU. I think he's a pretty good player and will develop into a good/possibly great player. Congrats to ISU for landing him!
Yep, Izzo took a PG early and didn't have room. Izzo and Fred have been friends for a long time (see Lucious and Babb coming to ISU after getting kicked out of MSU) and Fred's kid walking on at Sparty. Michigan offered late after already he committed, as they slow played MM, Izzo did not want him in Ann Arbor.Don’t think that is completely accurate as Izzo offered Monte late but he was already committed to ISU.
