    Alford is at it again!!

    In his opening press conference for New Mexico, his ego is really showing. Babbling about how he played in front of 10,000 fans every game in high school, etc. He really is priceless, an egomaniac.

    Re: Alford is at it again!!

    Why do we care about this guy so much? I don't ever remember him being a coach or player for Iowa State. He's just another coach that didn't pan out at a school and is now long outta sight. Give it a week or two and we can forget all about him.

    He took a shot about Iowa's next president will be the 5th in 8 years. I thought that was kinda low

    Not surprising, Steve never really did have much class. The people in IC will tell you he's a big a-hole that expected a free meal and perks the second he set foot in IC.

    Re: Alford is at it again!!

    I thought a few of his comments seemend to be a slap in the face of not only Iowa fans but, the whole state. When he said he was happy to be in a state that knows and cares so much about basketball.



    32 years later and I am still riding on the back.

    I don't sweat the petty things,... I pet the sweaty things

    Re: Alford is at it again!!

    There it was.. It took longer than I thought. He said it would be a lot easier to get LA Kids to New Mexico than to Iowa. I know its somewhat true, but I usually time it to see how long it takes for that comment to come out.

    Wow people, I'm glad some of you don't follow me around all day. I wouldn't want somebody scrutinizing and twisting every word I say at all times.

    Re: Alford is at it again!!

    Good job Steve...did you also mention that you are going from coaching in the Big 10 to the Mountain West? How about that you made the NCAA tournament 3 of 8 years with only 1 NCAA win? Or how about the fact that you NEVER had a player drafted in the NBA draft?

    Those have to sound good to potential recruits.

    Re: Alford is at it again!!

    Are we whining for the sake of conversation here or is there a point to all this?

    Re: Alford is at it again!!

    Ahhh.....He has to come in firing. I am not sure that the Lobo fanbase as a whole is fired up about him. Hopefully, for the fine people of New Mexico, all of the lessons that Alford learned as a head coach in the Big 10, helped him grow as a coach and a person.

    Or maybe he's just a hopeless a$$hole.
