I've been gone a week and now catching up with the incredible events that have taken place this week, so sorry if some of this has already been discussed. My take is that in addition to the known qualities Fred already has like love for ISU, charisma, humility, and brains, he brings two things that should be an advantage when recruiting. To be successful we need to recruit guys that want to play in the NBA, and with Fred we have a coach that can tell a recruit that he knows every NBA GM personally. Having played in the NBA he also has personal skills from the relationships he had with NBA players. Bottom line is that Fred not only played but also was in management in the NBA, two things I doubt hardly any other coach in the country can bring to the table when recruiting great players. Fred is good at everything he has done, and I have a lot of confidence he'll rescue our program and bring us back to where we want to be. Wow, we have gone from basketball misery to great excitement and hope in just a few days. Unbelievable.
Sorry GoShow97. I said I'd been gone the last week and apologized if I was bringing up some things that have already been discussed. Must be the first time anybody has done this and sorry to offend you.
