The Mayor of Ames moving on to the Chicago Bulls. What will this do to, along with Oregon, the unofficial Transfer U? I don't think they've named a successor yet.

Mods feel free to move which I'm sure will happen soon enough, but other forums don't see as much traffic as this main one so I thought I'd post it here first.

IMO they have to hire from within as this team is already in the starting gate just waiting for the buzzer to go off. I can't imagine ISU hiring a coach from outside and then change the style of play, which would cause confusion and possibly deter confidence...

Apparently the AD wants to hire from within, but the school prez wants to go outside the program.

Murray State's Steve Prohm (a great coach, BTW) and Stephen F. Austin's Brad Underwood are candidates.

I believe an outside hire diminishes their opportunity to capture the BXII title, they have a heck of a team. Why did the President hire the AD - to run the Athletic Department! "Ours is not to question why..."

We were supposed to be scared of ISU and they couldn't beat a mediocre Conference USA team :lmao:

Two things:

1) ISU was up and down all year. They had some great victories (two victories each over KU and OU) and perplexing losses (South Carolina and UAB).

2) Success in the post season correlates with getting stops and making crucial shots. ISU had trouble with both during tournament time. There is a reason why Izzo's teams have so many final four appearances. Hoiberg is an offensive guru, much like his predecessor, Greg McDermott.

Speaking of McDermott, being a big Dougie fan, and one who seriously worried about whether he would become another Adam Morrison, this is a very good hire. Chicago played a grind it out, get your tetanus shots style defense under Thibodeau. Not only was it boring, it failed to take advantage of a team with tremendous offensive fire power and left last year's player of the year on the bench. From what I understand this did not make the GM, Gar Forman very happy.

I would hasten to say, I think the Bulls are going to be better under Hoiberg.

ISU under Hoiberg was simple: live by the 3, die by the 3--just like us from 99-02--but they had the athletes to play defense in a power conference (but somehow had less NCAA success).

For most of Thibodaux's tenure, the Bulls had anything but tremendous offensive firepower. Mirotic and Gasol just arrived this year, same with Jimmy Butler's offense. Then add on Rose/Noah's injuries and there were many times over the last few seasons that I watched the Bulls and thought "we don't have a single scorer on the floor..."

If it didn't make Gar happy, it's probably a good idea. Forman is a moron.

Jacobsen, Larry Eustachy or Time Floyd would be my final 3.

Larry Eustachy deserves a 2nd chance but I just dont see it. If they can get Hornacek, he would be the logical choice.
