    Eric Heft/Pete Taylor

    After reading the wonderful article today on Cyclones.com about Eric Heft, I couldn't seem to get one thing off of my mind ... Pete Taylor. I often think about Pete and just how it was to listen to him most Saturdays since the Cyclones were never on TV. So I went searching for the Pete Taylor tribute I remembered listening to some five/six years ago after it first happened and I did come across it. I just finished listening to it and just like five/six years ago, I cried like a little baby. Pete Taylor ...... and Eric Heft, are Iowa State athletics moreso than Johnny Orr, Larry Eustachy, Dan McCarney, etc., etc. It takes a lot to be a great radio broadcaster, and these two men are just that.

    Also while in my mission to escape back to the past, I came across Steve Rushin's article on SI about how Pete Taylor was "world famous in Iowa." Pete Taylor is the epitomy of a great broadcaster. Never did he hide behind a catch phrase. The man told it like it was and you knew exactly what was going on at that point in the game. While Pete was great, Eric is equally great. I just thought I would share some of my emotions on what these two guys have meant to Iowa State athletics.

    I closed my eyes and could be right where I was on each of these plays ! I admit the tears fell again. Pete will always be missed!

    Re: Eric Heft/Pete Taylor

    He was the best. I feel bad for the younger kids at ISU already that aren't familiar with him.

    You just knew we were going to win that first game after he passed away, and they stepped up an beat the crap out of Mizzou.

    Those clips were from the best of times for ISU.

    We've been in a "funk" as an athletic department ever since then.

    I miss you Pete!

    FSU? Did I miss something? There was no FSU on that.

    You had the kick against Iowa

    Wallace's run against Tech

    Billups return against Pitt

    Seiler against Nebbie

    Fizer against Texas

    The Sullivan shot...I'm not sure what game that was though.

    But FSU??
