    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 first name out of his mouth was Steve Prohm, and Fred said the reason was that, 'He runs everything that I run. I've met him, (and) he's a man of character,' "
