    Sure, I can believe it. And if it had happened Fred would have been set up to fail. A deal like that would have set impossible annual expectations.

    He wouldn't have lived up to the expectations but he wouldn't have been a total failure. The trajectory he had this program on was absolutely insane. The best was still to come, he would have started to recruit at an elite level and start to pull in guys like Diallo, Coffey, etc

    Maybe, maybe not. Doesn't really matter now. Everything worked out pretty well for ISU, and Fred got a crack at his dream of coaching in the NBA.

    Fred was an excellent hire to bring ISU to national recognition. I believe he would have kept the program at this level if he stayed.
    Prohm has kept the program at the top 25 level for two year and is proving to be a good recruiter.
    It took both coaches to get the MBB level to this level and sustaining it.
    Instead of debating what if's we should just appreciate what Cyclonation has and the current future outlook.

    About that future outlook. Zion Griffen is going to be a big part of that. ;)

    Even though Fred isn't the most popular guy in Chicago kids still hear Fred, Iowa state, NBA, maybe the association helps our recruiting.

    Those are recruiting expenses at Louisville, not "other pay".

    It's a rewards program payback for all the hookers and blow.

    uh oh. Dwade was probably like "why did you commit to ISU? Don't you know Hoiberg coached there, I hate Hoiberg. You should go elsewhere".

    Can't have too many "beasts" on the team, especially in the Solomon Young mold. Sounds like he'll be Big XII ready from the get go.

    Zion is pretty ripped for a HS kid and then you see him next to Wade. NBA players are on another planet. :eek:
