    Does Steve Alford get a call?

    Just wondered what everyone thought if Mac is fired, does Steve Alford get a call? I think he may, the guy can coach, its obvious that Iowa is not a basketball school anymore, maybe a graveyard for college basketball coaches? Cause Alford has won everywhere he has been except Iowa.

    He did win at Iowa too, they won the Big Ten title one year, but were upset by Northwestern State in the first round

    And we will never win the Big 12 title at this rate.

    No chance. If he's coming back anywhere in the midwest, it will be to Indiana. And that ain't happening.

    Re: Does Steve Alford get a call?

    No, dear god he had the same problems at Iowa that we have with Mac.

    He had a very talented team and they way underachieved. Only made tourney by winning Big 10 tourney. He also was a winning mid major coach who failed at bcs conf.

    Yes, in a smaller conference, the guy has skills.

    He had 2 seasons where he made the NCAA without the help of a BTT title. But, getting creamed by Cincy in the first round one year, and upset by NWSTU the next year was stupid.

    ISU can do much better than hair-gel.

    We would have to pay him two contracts: one for his basketball coaching, one for his hair. We can't afford that.
