I think Pollard floated the Hornacek rumor because he needs cover when he hires TJ. I doubt Hornacek has been contacted. Coupled with the stuff coming out last night that apparently no one likes Hornacek, so why do we want him anyway.
I know for a fact Jeff has not been contacted.
I do not know if his agent has.
I wouldn't cross Hornacek off so easily. His dad was his high school coach and Johnny Orr said that Hornacek was like having a coach on the floor. Johnny never said that about Hoiberg. Hornacek came in as a freshman and within a few games was starting. And just an aside, have you ever seen a picture of the Hornacek family, it's pretty picturesque.
Of course his agent has been. That's how this is done. JP isn't going to contact Hornacek without an opening.
Reread my post. Hornacek is the closest thing to Fred given all the storylines but he's not Fred. That's the point. No one ever will be. I'd be fine with Hornacek. I was trying to make a greater point that Fred was/is a once in a lifetime scenario for an Iowa State of the world.
Well the guy I am speaking to is pretty much saying Jeff has not had any discussions with his agent either about the ISU job, but that was of as a couple of hours ago before the Bulls job officially opened up.
If I didn't feel like Iowa State fans have been and are being played in this whole thing that would be nice.
And for god's sake, if you are Jamie Pollard you ******* contact Jeff Hornacek and ask him if he is interested. Jesus.
Yep, which is why the whole thing completely sucks.
You stated in your post that Hornacek "pales in comparison" to Hoiberg. My point was that Hornacek has a lot going for him and that I wouldn't dismiss him so lightly. Hornacek could turn out to be much better than Fred, espacially if he would stay for longer than 5 years.
I'm not cheering for Fred to fail, but Hornacek has already proven he can hold his own as an NBA coach. He is putting up a decent win % in a stacked conference with a roster that doesn't stack up that well.
I think everyone agrees that Hornacek would, at the very least, somewhat dull the pain of losing Hoiberg.
I think it is increasingly clear however that Pollard isn't interested in Hornacek an Hornacek isn't interested in Pollard.
I think we've got our head coach. Might as well name him when we announce Fred leaving.
I'm cheering for the Bulls to fail and if that includes Hoiberg, I guess that is the way the cookie crumbles. He's devastated, I'm sure.
I'm afraid that you're right. I'm still stuck in the denial stage. i can't believe that this is happening again to ISU.
I'm not dismissing him! I'm saying he's the next closest thing! But it's NOT FRED! FRED and FRED alone created what we see at Iowa State and the national narrative the comes along with it. Hornacek may be the next Adolph Rupp. That's great. Wouldn't that be a nice way to forget about Fred.
The Horny speculation is silly. Jeff's not moving back to Ames.
I could handle that. As others have pointed out, it doesn't look likely that we'll get Hornacek. So I'm back to the denial stage-I can't believe that this happening.
Honestly, I'm still holding out hope. If not, whoever the coach is next year will have a great team. Not all is lost.
I know, but it sure would be nice. If I were him I wouldn't want to leave Arizona either, except in the summer!
If Pollard can come up with the cash, and the Suns don't try to extend him, ya never know.
