    Re: Best ISU football player, basketball player, football coach, basketball coach eve

    Football: Seneca Wallace
    Basketball: Jamaal Tinsley
    Football Coach: Earle Bruce
    Basketball Coach: Larry Eustachy

    I would say Jeff Hornacek based on watching him play in the NBA, but I grew up in a Roll Tide family, so I never watched Horny play for ISU.

    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    i think that the way things are going, Fred Hoiberg has the possibility to go down as one of the greatest if not the greatest cyclone of all time

    FB Player- Mike Stensrud (he dominated line play every game)
    Basketball- Grayer (I was surprised when he missed- always thought he was going to score)
    FB Coach- Earle Bruce
    Hoops- Tim Floyd. (LE had the best results) Tim game-planned as well as any coach I have ever watched. He adjusted brilliantly as well. We have been blessed w/ great hoops coaches and I hope Fred will be the best ever in a few years

    Re: Best ISU football player, basketball player, football coach, basketball coach eve

    Best football player: Troy Davis
    Best basketball player: Gary Thompson (2nd Tinsley)
    Best football coach: Pop Warner (i mean they named youth football after the guy)
    Best basketball coach: Tim Floyd

    On an unrelated front my dad just gave me a bit of cyclone trivia. My great uncle who played on the d-line for isu in the 30s roomed with fellow teammate Frank Nolte, Nick Nolte's dad. I had heard Nick Nolte spent time growing up in ames but didnt know why. Sorry if this is common knowledge but I had never heard it before

    Best football player- Troy Davis back to back 2000 yards
    Basketball player- Fred was the best I have seen in my 30 year life.
    Football coach- Earl Bruce. Before my time but did things that have never been achieved since
    Basketball Coach- Tim Floyd... Although it wouldn't of been possible without Johnny bringing the program back from less then nothing.

    depends on the question, most succesful as a cyclone or best coach. Either way still have to go with earle bruce if mac is the only option. But if it really is best coach considering 6 former cyclone coaches have won National titles (pop warner, jimmie johnson, majors, chizik, pete carroll, and mac brown) and bruce wasnt one of them not sure we could say he was the best coach to grace our sideline though probably the most successful as a cyclone.
