    Yeah I'm sure Pollard will do the most UN-Pollard thing ever, not only do the right thing and fire Prohm, but also hire a coach with p5 experience that has been successful. Such an UN-Pollard thing to do.

    At least we wouldn't have to worry about this coach leaving for Ohio State

    Maybe like one of the coaches from one of the Air Bud movies?

    Mad guy was responding to a hypothetical. There was no optimism on his part.

    Lol I don’t want Hoiberg back nor do I think Otz would be the guy. I like Prohm, but he certainly has his faults, as does Hoiberg. I haven’t been hiding at all. I’ll give Prohm next year to right the ship.

    Funny how jaded some Hoiberg fan boys can be.

    I know he used the word “if” but I just think that hypothetical is just too far out there.

    Ok then you responded to the wrong poster if you thought somebody was being optimistic.

    Mad Fran is my choice. He turned it around at EIU in 10 years.

    Hoiberg was a much better coach than Prohm has been. Clearly you don't understand basketball to not blatantly see that with the eye test, so please check the stats that have been posted to several different forums comparing Prohm's and Hoiberg's ISU resume.

    Fred was probably the second best coach in the Big 12 when he left. He was brilliant and brought back life into this basketball program. I thank him for that and wish him the best in his career, even if it's at Nebraska. With all of that being said, Fred left this program at a terrible time. There were opportunities in the two years after where this program could've reached heights we have never seen before. Because of that, it left a bad taste in our mouthes and forever will cause Iowa State fans like myself to play the "what if" game.

    Are you reading the same things that you're quoting?

    Dear lord, do I have to explain wins and losses to you?

    Fred's record: 115-63 (.673) Conf: 49-39 (.557)
    Prohm's record: 91-63 (.600) Conf: 36-41 (.473)

    That is including the Fred's 1st season in which he inherited maybe the worst roster in the Big 12. This also includes Prohm's first 2 seasons in which he inherited one of the best rosters in the Big 12 via Fred Hoiberg. I can assure you if those seasons were omitted it would be even far more in Fred's favor.

    Where did I argue he’s not? Clearly record wise yes, but it’s not a huge margin like some of you want to believe.

    It is a huge margin. That's why Fred was desired by several NBA franchises and Prohm is on his way to getting canned

    It shouldn't be controversial to note that Fred is a vastly superior coach to Prohm.
