Thank you Jesus! (Jamie) Today is a great day to be alive and to be a Cyclone. This is the start of something veeeeeeeery special here in Ames. I hope I'm not the only one that choked up a bit thinking about the glory days of yesteryear hearing what Fred had to say.
I didn't watch it but heard it on the radio. I can't believe how emotional I got listening to him speak. So proud to be a cyclone and see a former cyclone and Ames native get his shot really got to me especially when he talked about bringing the magic back. All I can say is Coach Hoiberg ,
I feel much, much better about the hire after the PC. I thought the line about "I have every NBA GM's phone number on speed dial on my cell phone. That should sound pretty good to a recruit." was classic.
My only fear was that JP didn't even talk to anyone else about the job it appears.
Saved consultation money...to spend on coaches....
Looking forward to CFH magic for the next bball season, Georges style.
Jesus, I was almost shedding a tear listening to him like I was on the Nebby win vid. I remember looking at a poster of him in our basement and playing nerf basketball. This reminds me of the piece about wrestling in Iowa and how it took off after some dude in the early 1900s became a hero and every Iowa boy wanted to wrestle. When I was little, I wanted to be a Hoiberg- I am 30, I know... but ask yourself this: if I was Hinrich and the other KU player from Iowa, wouldn't it be awesome to play for a legend?
It means more to win at a lesser program than a powerhouse because you are remembered- I just learned Reggie Miller went to UCLA- everyone knows Bird went to Indiana State.
