    Ask him if he knows what the "big news" concerning CycloneFanatic is.

    Play better than last week, bring cigars and beg for rep points.

    Seriously, ask him want in general made ISU and the fans worth staying so close to even after retirement.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    I will have to bring my A game, it is the Amana Colonies a bit tougher than Willow Creek, but at least I don't have ISUFAN22 telling me the green off to the left when in reality it is a pond

    I wouldn't know quite what to ask, but I would try to enjoy every second of that. What an awesome opportunity!

    Just say, "Whoo-ee, Coach!" after every shot.

    Re: need CF assistance - Coach Orr

    I have played golf with Johnny, you will not have to ask any questions, he will tell you great stories none stop and easily carry the conversation for the whole round. Just bring up names of older coaches like Knight and others and he will tell you great stories.

    Do not bet money with him, he is still a good golfer.

    Enjoy the day, you will have fun.

    Re: need CF assistance - Coach Orr

    I have played a couple rounds with Coach. Trust me, the man will keep you in stitches the whole time. I second the caution of not betting money. He will have you laughing so hard your game will be in the crapper. Just enjoy a memorable day.

    Ditto this...I played with him back in the 80s and you will not be pressed for conversation with him in your grouping!

    Don't go with any agenda other than having a great time and soaking up the opportunity!



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    He wrote a book after ISU, used to have a copy. Try to find it and get it autographed. Don't remember title but it was funny as hell.

    Re: need CF assistance - Coach Orr

    One of my favorite Johnny quotes (I think it was going into Freddy and Loren's freshmen year)..."There were five really good instate players this year. We signed three of them, one went to Iowa, and one went to Junior College, which is basically the same thing."

    The one time in my life I was going to go buy a book and they don't carry it.
