    How did Tim Floyd ever do it in 1996 and 1997 I believe

    Had to replace every starter I believe and implemented 4 transfers from either other colleges or JUCO and made them into a winning basketball team for their two years....

    Funny thing is the transfers were from smaller colleges like South Alabama and New Orleans of all colleges...

    Tim Floyd as a crafty, experienced coach. Fred is a total newbie. I'm afraid that he's going to have to learn on the run, which means more of the same for the foreseeable future.

    Floyd at that time was way ahead of where Hoiberg is currently as a coach. Plus those kids knew and accepted their roles as a team.

    Anybody who reads this as a bash on Hoiberg completely misses the point.

    He had a couple of bad***** already there that kept all the transfers focused and in place.

    Those guys played crazy good defense, and had at least 2 high caliber defenders. One of them being a 7 foot athletic guy in the paint that helps a lot too.

    Tim Floyd worked the hell out of those guys. He was known for running some brutal practices, I've never seen an ISU practice ran by Hoiberg but I have a hard time believing he's working the guys as hard as Floyd. Floyd also had guys like Willoughby and Pratt who were tough as hell, we don't have anyone like that on this team.

    Floyd assembled/inherited a very traditionally balanced team with a good point guard (Holloway), a good shooting guard (Willoughby), a couple capable forwards (Pratt and Bankhead), and a tall stud who dominated the post (Cato).

    Fred has a much more homogenous team that lacks both a point guard and a true center. ISU is loaded with large guards and forwards right now, but not having the versatility afforded by a point guard and a center is a huge limiting factor.

    Mental toughness and fight is the correct answer. You have to remember that Cato probably played around 24-25 minutes a game. There were a lot of minutes played those years where the lineup on the floor was 6'7, 6'5, 6'3, 6'1 and 6'0. Pretty similar to that UNI team that just beat us.

    I was thinking more of Joe Modderman.

    Maybe Floyd's teams didn't play like a bunch of pu****s
