    Eustachy Time-Out during Fizer-Tinsley years

    Anybody remember which game it was that the opposing team called a timeout during a big run by the team, and Larry just signed the players to stay on the court, he did no coaching or anything? The crowd went absolutely nuts, it was one of my favorite/most memorable moments () but I can't remember who it was against... Youtube would be even better...

    Don't remember the game, but remember it happening. Sort of a slap in the face to the other team saying "we don't even need to talk about things and you do"

    Re: Eustachy Time-Out during Fizer-Tinsley years

    It was against Kansas Fizer's sophomore year...our last home game of the year and Fizer had just threw down a monster 2handed dunk to give us a 2point lead with about 40seconds left after we had been down all game...when the team came to the huddle he met them halfway and said, "get your ***** out there and play some ******* defense!".

    That led to a shot clock violation by Kansas and a Cyclone win!

    I can remember seeing Larry do that on at least 3 occasions, two of them being the year after Fizer left.

    If it helps I think that 'iconic' courtside picture of the five players on the court standing there looking at the crowd that we see from time to time was taken during that timeout.

    Yep. Now I can remember 4 occasions when Larry did this.

    No, this one he didn't even meet them at halfway, he just waived his arms to signal them to stay at midcourt.

    That may be the one, I remember Fizer, Nurse, and maybe Stevie(?), but really can't remember the rest.

    I do remember a few other times too, but I specifically remember the one that we just went nuts for the entire timeout and the proceeding play...

    So maybe it is the one against KU Fizer's sophomore year...

    Larry Baby always said time-outs are "over-rated". Unfortunately, there's a few times in Larry Baby's tenure as our greatest coach in history where maybe a little reminder would have been beneficial:

    + vs Hampton. Our best PG in history has the ball in hand, with a 1-pt lead, and about 35-secs on the clock. For some reason, he forgets to pull up, dribble the ball out, or take a foul, and instead launches an 18-ft jumper, with no rebounders under the bucket therefore Ham gets the ribbie, dribbles the full length and scores to beat us by 1 pt. Only the 4th time in history a #15 beats the number two. Good call Larry.

    + vs Mich St. After blowing an 8-pt lead with about 7 min to go, we're down by two points, with the ball and 1:11 on the clock. Right in front of our bench, with Larry Baby pacing like an impatient bar fly trying to order a case of Natty Lites, Marcus Fizer in inexplicably launches a trey from deep in the corner. WTH? Maybe a TO to set the offense would have helped. Instead, 30-secs later Larry Baby is storming off the bench, in front of National TV, and sprays a spittle in the refs face while clearly yelling, "You Stoopid Mutha F****r" and gets ejected.

    + vs Drake same season. We get the ball, twice - under a minute to play and down by 1-pt. But look like the Keystone Cops in a Chinese Fire drill trying to set up an offense. The loss probably cost us a #1 Seed. Maybe if Larry Baby would have had the team practice offense in the first month of the season we'd actually know how to run a pick-n-roll.

    Larry never believed in calling a TO under a couple of minutes left in a game. Maybe because he was trying to figure out which T**ty Bar he was going to crash after he sends his team home separately because he "had a phobia about flying..."

    I remember the game that you're referring to, but not who we were playing. One of the coolest moments I've seen.

    If you are going to go off on our former coach, at least get the facts straight.

    In the Hampton game Tinsley drove to the bucket and put up a layup which rolled clear across the rim before falling off. It was not a jumper. He had done this in other games against conventional wisdom and won several games for ISU. You live by the sword, you die by the sword.

    Larry melted down in the MSU game after the double foul was called that disqualified Shirley. ISU was pretty much beyond hope at that point.

    With one of the best point and two guards (really a combo guard) in the nation sometimes it is better to trust that they know what to do and don't give the opposing coach a free time out to set his defense.

    You're the one who doesn't the facts straight; would you like me to send you a copy of the game?

    JT missed that lay-up as the final shot of the game, you need to rewind to about 35-secs, when we had a 1-pt lead and the ball in his hands.
