    Tim Floyd

    KC sports radio station is playing the USC press conference live and I hadn't gotten around to changing it but it was kind of interesting listening to Floyd. A guy gets up to ask a question and Tim calls him by name. The guy says "Rick Brown, Des Moines Register" and Tim kind of cuts him off and laughs and says "I remember you. How are you doin'?" The question was about his tournament experiences and in his answer he said the loss to UCLA was still the toughest to take of any in his career. Said that his USC team and that ISU team were really different.

    The next question was from a radio guy in Manhattan asking about the differences between coaching at USC and ISU. He basically said ISU was a great opportunity for him coming from UNO. Said he thought the toughest jump for any coach is the one from a midmajor to a major conference. Said he really learned a lot going against such good coaches and mentioned several old Big 8 names. Mentioned that Johnny Orr left him a good program and some talented players. Said recruiting is much easier at USC because he can go see so many great players and be in his own bed that same night. Ended up saying how much he liked his time in Ames and the midwest.

    The best moment is when he was asked about being a 6 seed and playing so close to K-State. He had a long pause and said, "That's a really great question. (pause) No one's asked that yet and that's a really great question. (pause) I'm not going to comment on anything about that." You could tell he's not very happy about it but didn't want to get in trouble.

    There is no doubt in my mind that USC wins that match.

    I like Beasley, but I am pulling for USC big time in this one! They have great school colors too.

    Re: Tim Floyd

    I took K-State. Both teams are very up and down. If USC win I would not be suprised. If K-State beats them by 20 I would not be suprised.

    Re: Tim Floyd

    Floyd will throw a box and one defense on Beasley and USC wins by 9. This is easy money.

    Thanks for posting. I believe Floyd was the greatest MBB coach for ISU because he had the perfect blend of excellent coaching skills and an excellent recruiter: Cato, Nurse, and of course he brought the only MacD All American to Ames.

    I always believe whenever Floyd had a few days to draw a game plan, that ISU would be in position to win the game.

    I was at the UCLA game and that is hard to take. I remember we had a 16-point lead with 16 minutes left in the game. How in the heck did we give that up?? Also, the out of bounds play when JC got run over and no charge was called really ticked my off - I saw Kentucky run that exact play vs Georgia last weekend and when they didn't get the call, it reminded me of Floyd's out of bounds play.

    I couldn't agree more. I believe the UCLA and Michigan State losses are the two most heartbreaking NCAA losses we've ever had. We could have done big things with wins in those two games.

    I found that loss in the Alamodome to be tough to take as well...unfortunately I had great seats for one tough loss that night in San Antonio.

    I think we are seeing how tough the "jump" is with McDermott...some can make it and some can't.

    Glad he gave Johnny his "props".



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Re: Tim Floyd

    I will root for Floyd wherever he is as long as his team isn't playing us. I think he is great.

    I hope he shuts down Beasley and makes a deep run in the tourney.

    Re: Tim Floyd

    I will root for Tim's teams wherever he goes as well. Tim is such a better coach than Martin that I don't think I could pick K-state once if they matched up 10 times.

    Re: Tim Floyd

    I'm a huge fan of Floyd. Fans actually go to games at SC now because of him.

    And I'm tempted to hand out some neg rep for those unpleasent memories some of you brought up. I need a beer.

    Re: Tim Floyd

    If I remember that game correctly, I also think that Cameron Dollar might have gotten away with pushing off against Jacy Holloway before he made that shot in the land. I also remember that if the trajectory of his shot had been about half an inch lower that Cato would have blocked it...


    Oh well.....that loss stunk, but it also made the 2000 NCAA tournament absolute stomping of them that much sweeter. Man, that was a bloody and vicious beating we gave them, and I loved every minute of it.

    Re: Tim Floyd

    The jump was easier since he also had Hoiberg, Meyer, Beecham, and Julius as seniors that year. Would still take him back in a second!

    Right on brother! Floyd was a great get for ISU. His UNO team had a pretty good KU team on the ropes in the previous year's NCAA tournament.

    He was the best floor coach I've seen (and I've seen 'em all since Coach John) at ISU. Give him a few days to design a defense and his team will be in the game until the end. Frank Martin will soon discover that.

    In talking about how Mac inherited a team low on talent, consider that Floyd lost 95% of his scoring and rebounding when Fred, Julio, Meyer and Beechum graduated (1994-1995 I believe). Floyd then goes out the next year and finishes second in the conference and wins the conference tourney with on all new team.

    That, my friends, is a great coach.
