    Point guard play more important than ever
    Wednesday, September 17, 2008 | Print Entry

    Posted by Doug Gottlieb
    I was told that shortly after Larry Eustachy's first season as head coach at Iowa State in 1999, following a 15-15 season and a first-round exit in the Big 12 tournament, he walked into the basketball office and shouted to his assistants, "One of you get me an NBA point guard, or you are all out of a job."

    The following season, Jamaal Tinsley arrived on campus from Mount San Jacinto (Calif.) Community College, joining Marcus Fizer to form one of the most potent one-two combos in the nation. Eustachy and the Cyclones went on to win two straight Big 12 regular-season titles and the 2000 Big 12 championship.

    And everyone ended up losing their jobs anyways down the road.....

    I wonder how many times he walked in the office and said "someone get me a nattie lite or you are all of a job".

    Seriously, kind of a funny story but it's reality in college basketball these days.
