    How would you rank our last 6 coaches?

    6. Greg
    5. Wayne
    4. Tim
    3. Larry
    2. Fred
    1. Johnny - the creator of "Hilton Magic"

    -- interesting to re-rank this in 10 years, though.

    Re: How would you rank our last 6 coaches?

    6. Greg
    5. Wayne
    4. Fred
    3. Johnny
    2. Tim
    1. Larry

    Those last four could go any way. I have them like I do because Fred, while doing some great things, hasn't sustained it and hasn't taken it to another level yet. I have Johnny where I do simply because he didn't reach the pinnacle the other guys did. Like I said, you can have 1-3 at 1 and I won't argue. When I look at it, I guess I don't know how you put Fred at anywhere but 4 at this point. Like you said, in ten years the story could really change.

    Oh and you could switch around Mac and Morgan, as if it matters.

    Re: How would you rank our last 6 coaches?

    The bottom 2 are easy - Wayne and Greg.

    The top 4 could go anyway, but hard not to put Johnny at the top. Fred would be where he is without Johnny and Hilton Magic, which Johnny created!

    Re: How would you rank our last 6 coaches?

    Larry got to an Elite 8 and Floyd got to a Sweet 16. Fred has one NCAA Tournament win. A little perspective please...

    Johnny can't be any lower than 2. Hilton Colliseum basically doesn't exist if not for Johnny Orr.

    Larry
    Johnny
    Tim
    Fred
    Wayne
    Greg

    Fred could leap-frog Tim depending on the next couple years. And if he wins a Conf title in the next couple years, he probably goes right to the top for me.

    Re: How would you rank our last 6 coaches?

    1 Orr- built something from nothing
    2 Floyd- carried on that idea and set us up for great years
    3a Fred- still learning, but has had great early success after coming in with a bare cupboard
    3b Larry-used Floyd's talent, but still brought in solid peices like tinsley, Horton. 2 GREAT seasons, which might give him a slight edge. Can't decide though.

    4 Wayne decent years in 04,05. Underachieved big time with blalock and Stinson's jr years.

    5 McDermott- wasnt a great fit and didnt know how to use players to their skill sets.

    I would put Fred above Larry because Fred didn't cause the implosion of ISU basketball and embarrass the program nationally.
    Yes, I know, Larry won back to back conference titles.

    Re: How would you rank our last 6 coaches?

    1. Johnny - winning % not as high as others, but hard to discount his legacy
    2. Larry - Good coach, probably great if not for personal issues
    3. Fred - He's doing good and he's so green. Wait til he gets 5+ years under his belt
    4. Floyd - Not sure how long he could have kept it up
    5. Morgan - Had some good players, but cleaerly not HC material
    6. ***** - Had some GREAT players, really found ways to lose.

    *edit Interesting that it censored #6. Probably a story behind a word that rhymed with McBudd.???
