    Love the Southern Miss coach

    The head basketball coach at Souther Miss. Gotta love the way he talks.


    “Where is there doubt about the NCAA tournament? Is there doubt? They are talking about Mississippi State at No. 71. We are 13th in RPI and 48th in strength of schedule. There is no doubt that we are in this tournament. We always get better off of loses. Things work out for a reason. People who say we are not in the tournament, are idiots. They are idiots. They obviously aren’t going by what the NCAA is going by. The criteria is based off of RPI and strength of schedule. You are not allowed to factor anything else in. So, put that in your pipe and smoke it. See what you come up with. Some guy on TV said “I would really be mad if Southern Miss makes it in and South Florida doesn’t.”

    “We beat South Florida! The guy didn’t even know that we played them. That is what we are dealing with—some idiots. This (the tournament) is just like the BCS, it is a machine. There aren’t 12 basketball coaches in that room, it is a computer.”

    Haha pretty good stuff Larry!


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    Re: Love the Southern Miss coach

    Sometimes I wonder how ISU basketball would have fared the last decade or so if Vandevelde wasn't our AD at the time of "the incident" and instead had an AD that had a pair of balls and kept him on.

    Wouldn't trade Hoiberg in, because I think ISU's best days are ahead of it with him, but man I miss the Eustachy days.

    Imagine the fan demand at ISU for getting LE back if we were still dealing with McDermott these last 2 years.

    Re: Love the Southern Miss coach

    What's the best RPI a team has had and not been put in the NCAA tournament?

    Larry Eustachy on C-USA, the NCAAs and idiots « Marshall Sports with Chuck McGill
    I agree with him, but him team sure did fall apart coming down the stretch. Good thing that's not a criterion.

    .

    I think Missouri State had an RPI in the 25 to 30 range several years ago and wasn't selected.
    I like what Larry E. had to say,it's time more of these coaches speak their mind,don't back down Larry!

    I agree. His behavior did merit a punishment such as a suspension, but part of me wonders if there was a way he stayed at ISU would he be the fully clean and sober guy he is today.

    I love LE. I wish Hoiberg would be as honest as this and like Orr was.
