    Thoughts on "Johnny Orr" Court

    There has been lots of discussion on KXNO(Murphy and Andy) about ISU naming our basketball floor after Johnny Orr. Just curious to see what you think of the idea. I like the idea...Hoiberg and Grayer are back at ISU...Johnny is here to be a part of the dedication...Also got me thinking about what other schools have courts named after famous coaches...

    Johnny Orr Floor > Johnny Orr Court


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Re: Thoughts on "Johnny Orr" Court

    I would love it.... (since this has been discussed NUMEROUS times this past year....and with the hiring with CFH.)

    Right now, I think the quickest and BEST way to honor him would be to name the street south of Hilton to Johnny Orr Way. Maybe that will "kick-off" more things to come in Hilton so to speak.

    Of the things that need to happen at ISU... few are more obvious.

    Do both. I don't see any problem with naming the street after him too. The only concern I would have is that naming the floor is going to get a lot more recognition, especially nationally. Prospective recruits might see it on tv, and actually take time to look up who Johnny Orr is/was. Not sure the street name alone would do that.

    Re: Thoughts on "Johnny Orr" Court

    I'm thinking this is so overdue that when it's finally done, it should be extended to include not only the Johnny Orr Floor, but:

    Johnny Orr Door (Entrance to Hilton)

    Johnny Orr Score (on Hilton scoreboard)

    Johnny Orr ISU Apparel Store (kiosk in Hilton)

    Johnny Orr Shore (Lake Laverne)


    Forever trying to find a cure for the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

    Re: Thoughts on "Johnny Orr" Court

    Murph and Andy were discussing that some of the big time boosters don't like the idea. I don't get this, but money does drive athletics. So, as a compromise how about putting a bronze statue at the top of the South stairs leading into Hilton.

    Re: Thoughts on "Johnny Orr" Court

    This needs to happen. It has been talked about numerous times on here. I thing with enough support from Fanatics and other Cyclones, plus having CFH and Grayer on staff with will get done in the next basketball season.

    Johny Orr should buy Dangerous Curves and change the name to... I'll stop right there.

    Who decides these things? What needs to happen? Does anyone know?

    The letter Jamie Pollard sent back to us in 2009 indicated that something was already in the works. Chris noted in response to my mailbag question about the same was that Jim Hallihan mentioned on the radio that he thought the floor was going to be renamed for Johnny this fall.

    I personally prefer a statue with the famous fist pump, but I just want something to happen.

    I think you'll see it some day.

    Renaming the floor is a good start.
