    Pete Taylor

    This came up randomly on my media player today at work.. and it got me thinking.

    Unless I missed it (sorry if I did) I can't believe we let it pass that the anniversary of Pete's death was last week, March 5th.

    Anyway.. hopefully this works. Enjoy. And thanks Pete.

    Re: Pete Taylor

    I play that at least once every tailgate. I was actually listening to it while running errands yesterday. I still get goosebumps throughout the wallace-fizer-seiler-billups string of calls. I remember listening to him call both "The Run" and "The Return", as I was unable to be around cable TV for either game...


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Pete Taylor

    I was really wondering why I was so looking for all my Pete Taylor stuff today...thanks for reminding me. Yes, got a bit teary eyed when I heard the Marv Seiler run vs. NU...boy does that bring back so many good memories!

    A Legend never so be forgotten...

    I miss you Petey, things have not been the same since you left us.

    Take good care of the boys we have sent up to be with you - Ennis, Stevie, and Barry especially.

    Man, hearing that is tough because ISU reached such highs around that time.

    Re: Pete Taylor

    That made my day. I just listened to it at my desk at work and I was getting goosebumps and a little choked up. There was nobody better. I love the fact that he was offered so many other jobs at different colleges and some pro teams but he loved being a Cyclone.

    Re: Pete Taylor

    Name the GD pressbox after him already JP. I realize you weren't here when Pete was, but he left as bigger or bigger impression on ISU sports as any athlete has.

    While they are at it they could rename the road in front of Hilton Johnny Orr Way and put a big ol' fist pumping statue out there.

    That was pretty neat; it would be cool if there was a video to that. Hawk or not, it's hard not to appreciate it.

    Actually...he just needs to be honored in some way. Whether it is the pressbox, a road, a statue..I really don't care, but we owe him something. If this drags on too long without honoring the man in some way I am gonna be mega PO'd.

    He is literally the reason I grew up a HUGE Cyclone fan and I know that goes for many on this board.

    Johnny Orr Floor.

    Frankly, I think it should be the Johnny Orr practice facility, but that naming right has probably already been sold.

    This better happen by 10 year anniversary of his passing, or something like it. i get the feeling Pollard really doesn't care about those who were here before him.

    I am a JP supporter, but this is one topic he does not get a pass on....something needs to be done to honor PT!
