    Had an operator error on one. Flipped forward while I was trying to read the stuff below, exact same three coaches so I thought it didn’t take but it was the next question so I got it wrong. When I read the question, I knew it. So my 9/10 should have been 10/10.

    Same here.

    I honestly don't remember Fred sharing that title with Bill Self back in '12. I think he earned it, but I also can't believe that Tim Floyd didn't win it back in '96 with that team that was expected to do very little and then won the very last Big 8 conference tournament (one of my all-time favorite Cyclone basketball teams).

    That question is tricky. I'm old enough to remember 9-18 clearly.

    Great quiz. It's always an interesting question the OP asks as well.

    LE reached the greatest heights but a big crash.
    Floyd definitely laid some groundwork for the 2 years of dominance with LE.
    Johnny with the longevity and starting a basketball culture that would last decades.
    Fred with the most consistent winning every year, but not quite LE heights or Johnny longevity.

    I could understand someone saying either Fred or Johnny. With Fred I don't think it's crazy to consider the 4 years he spent as a leader on the floor to partially make up for the fact that it was only 5 years coaching.

    ISU hall of fame really stretching to add nominees and inductees the last few years.

    Floyd coached here for merely 3 seasons, used ISU as a stepping-stone, and was inducted into ISU's Hall-of-fame? kind of watered-down criteria
