Do you remember this men's basketball team at the start of the season? They were not very good. Remember the Iowa game? We were awful. Once again, The Mayor of Ames, Fred Hoiberg has done the improbable. He has patched together a team and coached them into being one of the most dangerous teams in the country. We are so lucky to have this guy. Fred is the Mad Scientist. He pours over arcane and obscure stats and gins up a game plan......and wins. He makes short guys unbeatable in a tall man's game. The last time I had this much fun (and this much pride) we ran a good UCLA team off the court (by 30 pts) in 2000. It's 7:57 AM in Florida, and I am sitting on my couch anxiously waiting for a game whose tip-off is five hours away! It is indeed great to be a cyclone!
