    Johnny's at Hilton Coliseum

    Iowa State To Honor Johnny Orr - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports

    Please, please, please.... stop messing around and put his name on the damn floor.

    One of the most popular and successful coaches in Iowa State Athletics history will be permanently honored beginning this winter when "Johnny's" - a large sports bar-themed gathering area for donors - will open its doors at Hilton Coliseum.
    Wonder how big of a donor you have to be to get in there?

    Re: Johnny's at Hilton Coliseum

    Do all donors have access or is it big-wigs only?


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I'd imagine bigger donors or it would be a packed mess in there.

    Besides, not everyone who goes to Stage Door also goes to the game, meaning you don't have to have a ticket to get in.

    What's with all of these statue's? It seems like every athlete in Chicago is getting them and now Johnny. Before we know it, all of America will be filled with statue's.

    Probably very similar to the club section at Jack Trice. Especially with bar being the operative word, as there is beer sold in the club section.

    Why would we call it Johnny Orr floor, when Pioneer pays us to have their name on the floor?

    This club section has been in the works for over a year now.

    Someone said there are too many statues, well there is beginning to be waay too much writing on college basketball floors.

    Weak. I always hated how the retired jerseys were on one end of Hilton. You had to come in there or go out of your way to see them. The statue is going to be the same way.

    Hmmm. Marketing degree. Lives in Johnston. Defending Pioneer. Makes me wonder......

    Johnny deserves one. I'm absolutely thrilled that they went this route. If it bugs you that much, go ahead and tear down everyone else's statue, but leave Johnny's up.

    I think this is a good start for sure. It's better than the nothing that has happened the past few years. The statue should be pretty darn cool.
