    Re: Williams Blog: Big 4 & the NBA Draft

    I hate to bring up the hawk comparison but I hate how their football fans always give us **** for not having any football players drafted.


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    Re: Williams Blog: Big 4 & the NBA Draft

    Why are we claiming Mike Taylor but not Wes Johnson? Both left here as non-prospects, and turned themselves into prospects elsewhere. If we're only going to claim one, we should try to claim the one who was a better player and didn't get kicked off the team.

    Taylor's last college was Iowa State. Johnson's was not.

    This is correct. Johnson surely doesn't claim Iowa State. Taylor does.

    Re: Williams Blog: Big 4 & the NBA Draft

    I guess my point is that it's a little bit of a reach to take credit for Mike Taylor getting drafted. ISU kicked him off the team. He wasn't a prospect when he left here, but just another combo guard who never met a shot he didn't like. His D-League coaches deserve the credit for getting him to the NBA. He was here for one fewer season than Wes, was a worse player, and got into far more trouble. Yet now he's idolized and Wes is a villain.

    Mike Taylor had the I-State logo next his face by the NBA when he got drafted & his college is listed as Iowa State.

    Wesley Johnson had the Syracuse logo next his face and his college is listed as Syracuse.

    I saw him play with the Hornets against the Bulls in Chicago. He played 4 minutes in the first half and got 4 fouls, it was classic Vroman.

    As I recall, he hung around the NBA for a few years, played here and there. Then he broke his wrist and never made it back.
