In a vacuum, sure this might be a legitimate debate, but it starts to **** people off when we see one or more of these threads (I'm just talking about the timeout threads, not all the other "Fred can't coach threads") after every single game. Enough already! We get it, you want the Scott Drew method of calling timeouts. There are other opinions on the matter that are just as legitimate.

Clone to the Bone with the up and coming IOWA STATE.
chuck is spot on. Fred is very conservative with his use of timeouts. He claims he wants his team to work through tough moments, fine, but after 3 games of poor late execution, you need to try something different.

You know, I have been critical of Coach Hoiberg at times but you can't point the finger at him for the Texas loss. I thought he executed game plans well, however, our man to man defense was horendous!! The 2-3 zone was much more effective.
Getting back to calling time-outs, I thought Coach Hoiberg made good decisions when to call timeouts, and when not to. You can arm-chair quarterback this game till the cows come home.
Bottom line. Coach Hoiberg is a good coach!

So, who the hells knows. The bottom line is that Fred let's the guys play and SHOOT. SO DID Barnes. Fred trusts in our offense to keep space and get someone a decent look. It worked many times late in the game and OT's. At times it didn't. There was plenty of substitutions by Fred to have the right guys on the floor as well. Go to CBSSports.com and find the tracker. There is plenty of coaching going on. Even Barnes let his guys make plays, Kabongo and McClellan took some big shots for them. As did the guys on our team you want to take shots. When you are in such a tight game and still making plays I would argue let them play. There were TO's called though. I would also argue that plays are called in advance of situations. Like during UT's called timeouts. Ugh, enough said.
