    Famous quotes by ISU basketball coaches

    Slow day so I thought I would see what your favorites are. A few of mine are (paraphrased as I didn't look these up)

    Orr: Someone has this in their sig line when he said "We got three of the top players in the state, 1 couldn't get into school and the other went to Iowa which is about the same thing."

    Eustachy: I believe in reference to a question about what he thought of Tyray Pearson being 2nd in the country in FG%, "Too bad whomever he is guarding is #1"

    Floyd: On first interaction with Loren Meyer "Just what in the hell were you doing out at 2 in the morning?"

    Orr: On ESPN in response to Vitale "Last time we played, we kicked your #$%!"

    Eustachy: In reference to Holman "He came off the bench like someone stole his cow."

    I likely butchered a few of those so if any one wants to actually look them up, I will edit. What are others?

    I just thought it was cool. He called Cy an Angry Chicken.
    ^^^One of my favorites.

    While not when he was the Cyclone coach, but rather while a player, Hoiberg was being interview after a game by Keith Murphy, when Murphy's voice cracked and he asked, "What was that?" to which Hoiberg responded...on TV, "Puberty?"

    Orr being interviewed after David Moss had a big game on the boards "Have you ever seen such long arms on a white man"?











    The sky is the limit. We are trying to win every game. We are going to try to get to that big stage, the Final Four, and play on. Morris (May 2014)
    “If you take a look at this group, we’re extremely talented 1-15. We have a lot of talented guys in this locker room — all guys who are willing to put their agendas aside to win. That separates good teams from great teams.” Niang (Oct 2014)
