    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"?









    “I realized that we are just tough young men. Resilient, really,” Morris adds. “A lot of people probably would have tucked their tail and tried to make moves but this group stuck together. Everybody is on the same page and that really told me a lot about the type of season we can have.”

    hoever steps in, we can still do something special.
    We're super-talented, no matter what. We can do something special next year."
