    Im losing respect for ISU fans.....

    every time I hear someone want our new head coach to be from some past staff.

    Steve K, Rick Wesley, Larry E, Tim Floyd, Hoiberg, Morgan, Grayer ... any of those guys.


    I thought we had a pretty intelligent basketball fanbase. Im completely begining to wonder this.


    Is this because most ISU fans do not pay that close attention to NCAA hoops as a whole.. but know a few former ISU names... plus Nick Nurse?

    It's like ISU fans have not even heard of 95% of what goes on in NCAA basketball outside of the state of Iowa.. or MAYBE a little bit around the Big 12/10.

    Re: Im losing respect for ISU fans.....

    Nice post. I like the names of coaches being thrown out that were fired from their last job or that are not doing well at their current job. People need to think and know a little about a coach before throwing names out there.

    I agree...many are limited by their past experiences.

    I say we give Kevin Stallings a call!



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    This is just the typical craziness that occurs with every major coaching change

    Going to games in cyclone alley was ALWAYS fun just to hear what people were saying about the game.

    As far as people from the past, the one I love is Tim Floyd. He just signed with UTEP the other week. Yeah, he's going to break a contract he JUST signed to come to ISU. Get real.

    I wouldnt put a ton of stock or opinion into these names. People get reminisce when they are down.

    I agree the way things are going on this board we may as well give Johnny Orr a ring and see if he still has the fire to coach isu again

    Names like LE, Floyd, Hoiberg even Gillespie are the equivalent of Iowa screaming for Bruce Pearl.

    You're right. Iowa fans screaming for a former assistant that has gone 126-46 in a high major conference who had (at that time) been in 3 Sweet 16s in 5 years is the same as those names.

    Our former head coach struggling in C-USA.
    Our former head coach going through major scandal, just landed a gig in C-USA.
    BCG is out of coaching, and even though there was a lot of turnover this year, no program wanted to touch the guy with a ten foot clown pole.

    Exactly the same

    "how so" = not happening

    That's what they have in common with Bruce Pearl.
