    Eustachy Yahoo Article

    Pretty sure everybody is aware of Eustachy success as Southern Miss and his struggles with alcoholism but I thought this was a good article: The resurrection of Larry Eustachy - College Basketball - Rivals.com

    I think that LE's reaction to the 2000 tournament loss was the same for a lot of fans that night.

    BVD should have been the one fired. LE should have not have been fired, instead he should have been given a strict set of requirement to meet, including AA.

    What is the likelihood of this? ESPN currently projects us as a 9 seed and them as an 8 seed. Would be good for TV ratings I would think! Would be interesting, but not sure I'd really like to face them first round though.

    Re: Eustachy Yahoo Article

    great write up by PF really like his work and I always have.. I also did not realize he remarried but good for him! I think the firing was the best thing for the guy now.. at the time I did not think this but it was the right move.. I hope we do NOT play LE it may be cool but would rather cheer for him and not play against


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I was happy when Pat Forde ditched the booyahs for Yahoo. Great article by him.

    Sums up my thoughts as well...I want to cheer for LE in the tourney! If we both make it it would be fun for all of us...matching up against one another would be strange!

    Re: Eustachy Yahoo Article

    i think that we should put them on the non con schedule in hilton sometime soon. for a few reasons, highlights:
    1)so larry can come back and see just how much the fans still support him
    2)so he can see the press room they finally named for his best friend.

I'm not just your football coach; I'm not just here to win games. I could not be prouder of who we are and who we are becoming, together. You do things right in the classroom, off and on the field; that's whats's makes us Cyclones and that's what our culture's all about."

    Re: Eustachy Yahoo Article

    I agree with you guys who said it, I don't want to play them as I'd rather see him win versus rooting against him.

    Larry got a louder ovation than Johnny Orr at the All Century Team charity game a few years back. He knows he's missed.
