Fred Hoiberg is so much a better coach than anyone in his 3rd year ever should be. I can't wait until we take his genius for granted, and then I'll hate that we take it for granted.
There is no other coach that I would trade him for. A lot of that is that he isn't approaching his ceiling yet.
Couldn't agree more, I think a lot of what makes him a great coach happens between games when we aren't watching. Games like today prove that. Losing a game that we had won, then playing a talented (but underachieving and poorly coached) team could have been a tall order for a lot of good teams and coaches but today Fred's guys came out exactly like any of us could hope. Coaches always talk about shaking off a tough loss but its easier said than done. Fred had his guys sharp and ready play. That says more than timeout usage, or fouling strategy ever could. Just when you think ISU fans couldn't love Fred any more than they do.....
