    Some of ya'll are acting like Prohm was hired as a secret spy sent from Lawrence, Kansas via Murray, Kentucky to deliberately sabotage Iowa State Basketball for not only this season but for seasons to come.

    When they interview for jobs, they have a plan, a vision, and they get hired based on the plan/vision and administrations belief the head coach can execute the plan. Before all of this, most of you could not name more than maybe 1-2 assistant coaches outside of Iowa State. I think Prohm is a better evaluator of coaches than any of us on this board.

    Coach Otz is truly fortunate that he is more highly regarded by his counterparts in the basketball profession (the ones whose opinions matter) than he is by some of the "know nothings" on this board who actually think they have the wherewithal to judge his qualifications as either a coach or recruiter.

    Fwiw Danyell Robinson is a great man. Staff at loyola rave about him. His indian hills connection (former player) cant hurt. No link or anything like that. Just some personal connections and opinions. I look at him like cornell mann 2.0.

    Was instrumental bringing in Marquis Gilstrap, LaRon Dendy, and probably the biggest bust in Iowa State history, Chris Colvin. Not bad for his two year stint at Iowa State, but not great.

    Robinson and TJ would be both good additions to this staff. It's that simple. Hope it happens. I don't care if you agree or not.

    DR also was really close with Brackins and Garrett. I knew a couple players at Indian Hills and he was really well respected there. Has great Juco, Chicago and Texas connections.

    I always enjoy these posts. Everyone knows that message board posters aren't everything, but what is the point of flying by to post "message board posters suck?"

    I dont think it necessarily matters what players each member of the staff brings in. As long as SOMEBODY on the staff( hopefully tj) brings players in. It is just as important for them to have a coach to relate to and bond with once they get here. Get some good talent on campus and warch them thrive in a system with leaders whos are good ppl with whom they have great relationship s with. Morale is importan.

    Your point is mostly spot on. For whatever reason this place puts him on a pedastal, even though he hasn't achieved much of anything and no one wants to hire him as a HC.

    I was estatic to hire him as an assistant, but you guys hyping him up way more than he deserves is mind blowing. He has no business being our HC at this point in time, and you don't just give him a raise because you feel bad for him.

    If he's such a little ***** like you make him out to be and can't handle staying here because Fred left and because he didn't get the HC job, then let him go.

    If he's fine with sticking out his contract like I'm sure he is, then keep him. If he warrants a raise/extension next year, then give it to him.

    But not now.

    Otz isn't perfect but he looks better and better compared to guys like Robinson whose name is getting thrown around.

    TJ didn't reply to text messages or beeper signals (is that what they're called?) tonight. Heard he was going to pen a letter next.

    Hence the term "beat writer".

    Randy Peterson: 2m ago - Getting signals that Coach Prohm will be hiring some add'l staff soon and should have the staff filled out by the time the team goes to Europe.

    That's not real, but why does the Rag pay this guy for doing something I could and would do for way less $$$ from the comfort of my living room.
