True, but Frieder was a great promoter and remember what that got us. He was also a good recruiter and coach. Check his record at Mich and see why we wanted him at ASU. 9yrs and the last 6 they had 20 to 28 wins. They win the NIT and then are in the NCAA's the next 5 yrs and they won the NC after he was fired and on his way to Tempe. Frieds would do any crazy thing to bring a crowd. I believe he would have walked on his hands or done back flips at a press conf if he thought it would bring 10 more fans to a game. When we hired him it looked like the NC was within our grasp in 4 or 5 yrs. Be careful what you wish for. Sometimes when we get what we want, we also get a bit more than we thought we were getting.
