    Tim Floyd ??

    The story had it that Tim Floyd's wife hated Ames. She wanted the big city, Chicago, LA, etc. With a possible coaching vacancy would Tim & his wife consider coming back to Central Iowa?

    Of course...why not...maybe he'll get another crack at the Bulls too while he is at it.

    We could play the non conference schedule on the road in the South and go to Hawaiii to help persuade her. Just show up in Jan for conference.

    No, Tim has a better job now. He will likely soon have another HC gig in the NBA. Besides, I don't think he would even be considered.

    His wife didn't "hate" Ames, but it definitely wasn't her 1st pick of places to live. From what I know they were both very happy in Pasadena.

    With all that said, I would welcome him back with open arms and a tear running down my cheek.

    If you would like me to decipher please let me know but I think it's time to quote the great Led Zeppelin in Stairway to Heaven as to whether or not we should hire any of our great former coaches: "If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now, It's just a spring clean for the May queen. Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run there's still time to change the road you're on. And it makes me wonder."

    Re: Tim Floyd ??

    Tim Floyd and Larry Eustachy were not long term solutions in the past and will not be the future.

    Floyd: ISU was a stepping stone for him and he had 3 very good years out of the 4 he was here. He had a revolving door policy with players which I did not like. His worse year was his last year. Tim didn't want to be in Ames any longer than he had too, that was why he hedged on taking the job to begin with. Although, he did help bring in a very good coach to take his place in Eustachy.

    Larry was a great coach and could have been a long term solution. He had problems with getting too big, fast and his personal life and alcohol addiction caught up with him. Larry was a great coach and I have tremendous respect for what he accomplished, but deserved to get fired for what he did. He is probably better off personally to have gotten away from it all and started over fresh.

    He also had problems with bringing in the right players. I think he thought that he could do with other Jucos what he did with Jamaal Tinsley. His alcohol problems were definately affecting his results in his last 2 years.

    I think McDermott still might show us something. I think next year will tell us what they can do.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Re: Tim Floyd ??

    I would love it, but money talks. If Tim is absolved from the USC scandal he will cost a ton. He knows he can win here, and if he were to leave after being successful we just include a huge buyout so we can get someone just as good.

    That said, just a pipe dream and no way it happens.

    That is an awesome post. Many things said so few words.

    Another note Floyd and LE had troubles keeping a full roster. WHY?

    Can you imagine this team with LE? He wouldn't tolerate all the lack of excution and would probably have an aneurysm from yelling so much or someone would go Latrell sprewell on him.
