    What Prompted Johnny Orr to charge Iowa Asst?

    When the dust settled that wild night in 1987, Lafester Rhodes had 54 points. Then there was a dust up when an Assistant Coach for Iowa approached Johnny only to have Orr charge him. It took others to deter the Iowa State Coach. What was the story? What sparked Orr's ire after Tom Davis shook his hand and the lesser Iowa coach came to do the same?

    Uh, I don't know. I was one. Why are you asking 25 years later?

    Re: What Prompted Johnny Orr to charge Iowa Asst?

    Did anyone read the article below it? No uniforms so they used baby blue t's with the numbers chalked on. Also subbed based on shoe size because they only had 5 pairs of shoes??? Crazy what sports used to be like.


    Quote from imported_blubberhawk on HN after ISU beatdown of Iowa in Carver '14

    "When you lose to a fricking joke of a program like ISU, you get what you deserve. That game is a perfect illustration of why our head coach should be retired.
    In defense of the Big ten network, it is tough to find Iowa games anymore when we aren't embarrassed."

    Would of loved to see a Nolan Ryan-esque beatdown of Close, but it only lasted 5 seconds tops

    Re: What Prompted Johnny Orr to charge Iowa Asst?

    My favorite pare of the article is when they gave the clarification that "Iowa is in the Big Ten Confrence and Iowa State is in the Big Eight" .....glad they clarified that because I am sure there were a lot of readers wondering why Johnny was spouting off about big 10 officials.


    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives…..

    CyTV has many old/classic game re-plays. I watched this game considered to be one of the best ever at Hilton with Rhodes leaving a historic benchmarks that stand to this day. Viewing the game with a Hawk fan he recalled that Johnny went nuts for no reason. I knew that did not sound like Orr and read below what transpired.

    Johnny was a feisty old cuss, that's what was behind it.

    Sometime you guys should ask your elders the tale of John Culbertson. Offline, of course.

    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    I saw him in the MWL commons and he was trying to get a girl to visit his room so he could show her some of his "artwork."

    I have always wondered if that was roid rage with Bielema. Were roids even a thing that long ago? Probably just typical kneejerk Hok.

    As for Bruce Pearl, seems he was always breaking the rules.
