    Fred knew he could get Amardi on somewhere else

    Fred never pushed anyone out during his consecutive championship runs in Ames mostly because he was a great recruiter and never got a clunker...

    He was a squeaky clean white prince choir boy until he got to Nebraska. Now he's a corrupt villain.

    I doubt Hoiberg knew he was about the take a final. Its not like he would know the entire final's schedule of everyone on the team. He probably schedule end of year meetings with all the players during finals week before some of them leave for break and told him then.

    I heard he hates old people, dogs, and small children now.

    Very weird this is a story. The time was probably agreed on by the kid as well.

    Hind sight is 20/20 I suppose, but Bluford sucked and we had a really short rotation that year. Why not keep the guy that adds more to the team and not worry about where the next kid lands. Maybe I'm just more ruthless than Hoiberg.

    The story I heard was Edozie was already here and with his backstory had no place else to go. Richard had options that Daniel didn’t. It was actually a class move all around by Fred.

    When people say, "this can't help in recruiting" i immediately think of the hot girl from another school who people told you was a bit crazy/dumb/whatever. sure, she may be, but did that make you desire her any less? probably not.

    Did Fred ever go a season without someone transferring out? He had plenty of swings and misses. A lot kids left the program when he was here. 9 guys he recruited that never had an impact at ISU.

    11-12 McKnight, Phillips
    12-13 Sledge
    13-14 Okoro
    14-15 Gibson, Bluford
    15-16 SDW

    Custer and The Greek also left after Fred announced he was leaving.

    Still think that the fight that IHCC got into with Southeastern that year was a major reason. Armadi was in the middle of it.

    No. Fred is an egocentric guy, always has been. It would have taken two ******* minutes to check on this but Fred didn't bother, because that's simply who he is.

    He's just another coach. He is completely focused on his job and his things and does not see a lot else going on. No better or worse.

    I always wondered what happened to DeMarcus Phillips.

    Some people on here had him as a starter going into that season.

    Never found anything about him on the Internet again.

    Sounds like every coach in college basketball to me. He's paid to win games. End of story

    This may sound wild to you, but you can win games and still be thoughtful at the same time. Crazy, right?
