    The Johnny Orr Project

    With the help of Angie and the moderators, I've created a social group called the Johnny Orr Project. It is my hope to gather ideas, and then organize and support those ideas to find a fitting way to honor Coach Orr at Iowa State. This group is open for anyone to join.

    I would like nothing more than to come up with a great way to honor Coach Orr, and to present that idea to Jamie Pollard with some real support (both monetary and otherwise) for getting this achieved.

    Coach Orr created the modern era of Cyclone basketball (and Hilton Magic), and beyond those accomplishments, has been an outstanding representative of what it means to be a Cyclone to this day. Coach is 82, and I think it would be a shame to wait until too late to do this.

    Please join today. Thanks!

    Re: The Johnny Orr Project

    doesnt JP have plans to buy Hilton? (maybe ive been living under a rock and he already has done this.) Why not rename "Hilton" after Mr. Orr? It would be very fitting since he did create the atmosphere knows as "Hilton Magic"

    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    Because Hilton was responsible for the Iowa Stat Center to be built. I'd be okay with Johnny Orr Arena or the Johnny Orr Fieldhouse if the Iowa State Center was renamed 'Hilton Center at Iowa State University.'

    Why not now? Orr is 82, he's not gonna be around for another 20 years. Do it now. Don't make another mistake like Barry Stevens and wait until he's gone to honor him.

    I'm in only if there will be a real effort to do something. I don't want to join a group, think my job is then done, and then ***** that nothing happened.
