    SI Mike Taylor mention

    Forgive me if this has already been posted, I couldn't find a mention with a quick scan of the topics.

    Mike Taylor was mentioned in a story in the new SI about the NBA developmental league.

    Just a short blurb about him leaping over a defender impressing scouts who then were informed he played for UCLA. Mike was interviewed later and said something to the extent of: "I'm not sure where they got UCLA. I played for Iowa State"

    He made some errors, but he was a Clone and always will be part of ISU's past.

    oh comeon ... apparently he claims us!

    Mike was a noteworthy blip in ISU MBB history. Of course we claim him.

    Mike screwed up a few times, and lost his scholarship as a result. End of punishment. I hope he has learned from his experience, and he is a Cyclone.

    You have got to be kidding me. Just because he made some dumb decisions means we erase all of our memories about him. I don't think so.

    Re: SI Mike Taylor mention

    I think he is definitely better for having been here... he made some mistakes, but everybody deserves forgiveness if they make an effort to better themselves. I'm happy to see him playing well.

    Then are you going to say Lucca isn't a Cyclone? MT played in 30 more games as a Cyclone than Lucca has...

    Re: SI Mike Taylor mention

    Mike is a cyclone to me. He wanted to be here and he played hard. You may not have the same personal ideals of the man next to you in battle, but if he is fighting for the same cause as you, he is a brother.

    Re: SI Mike Taylor mention

    The word is that Mike T wants to finish his degree at ISU as well. I think graduating from ISU pretty much solidifies that he is a cyclone.

    Not in CO anymore but I'm not changing my name :)

    Most of his 'trouble' he caused was not much worse than most of us caused in college.
