I was not sure about Fred before the hire, but it just gets me excited to know he is going to be the coach. We know he has a great BB mind and knows talent. What he did in the NBA and player will be so valauable in so many ways. Looks like TJ is staying on, so the recurting will be in good hands. If Nurse stays on that will be a big help in the X and O area and player relations. Grayer will be a good guy to have on staff as well. He needs to get a former DI coach of some sort to be his Director of BB opperations to help him with the other things.

I'm sure once i cool down from how bad of a hire this is, i'll do my best to come out and support the clones. I'm still an ISU fan, and I'll give anyone a chance. I'd pull for just about anyone who's our coach. That doesnt mean this doesnt have the signs of being an absolutely awful hire, and that, i'll hang on JP.
I don't think there's any debating that. This will be the one that makes or breaks JP. Lifetime contract or unemployment line in 5 years.
Great. He loves the school. Awesome. I don't think TF or LE loved the school nearly as much as Fred but they were still great coaches here. That's just not a criteria I was looking for in a head coach.
To call this hire a gamble is an understatement. I love FH like CRAZY but I"m very underwhelmed with this hire. With all the great hoops hires for our program over the years I have a hard time believing we have to take a flyer on someone.
