    Re: McDermott Interview Podcast

    thank you jon


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I think you have the wrong Miller on KXNO. The only reference I made of Mike Taylor today is what you will hear to lead off the podcast when I spoke to Coach McDermott. I never brought it up again in my entire show. And I also let Coach know that I was going to have to ask him about that, before I asked him, so I didn't hit him out of left field with this. We had this interview arranged for this time last week.

    Thanks Jon, I really like what you do on KXNO and Cy-Hawk Talk. And yes, sometimes it's difficult for me to say that.

Give me a break. I know he got it from here but this is one of the dumbest rumors I've ever heard. How is this OWI relevant to this past arrest anyway? One was before he was at ISU and this is his first one here. So Jeremy tried to keep it under raps before for "the good of isu" but not lets it out and creates a whirlwind around this episode? This whole thing is stupid and is dragging Michael Taylor's name through the mud.
    He was already committed to ISU and was a part of the team regardless of how you try and spin it. It was not a coverup, it did happen though and you can't try and spin this into nothing. Do you want to win at all costs and become another embarrassment or do you want to win for the right reasons and with good guys?


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

I'm sure Mike is plenty embarassed with his latest arrest and did not expect to have to re-live his previous arrest.
    Everybody in the media knew about it back last summer and it wasn't on the air because of CF today, it was because of Mike and his actions. I had already talked to Marty & Miller and they were going to discuss the OWI regardless of if it was on CF or not.

    I'm going to the gym to burn off this steam. I leave you with one question though...

    What image do you want ISU to portray? One of integrity and values or one that will win at any cost?

    It doesn't matter if you want to sweep everything under the rugs and run a dirty program. I on the other hand would like my donations and money going to a University that holds everybody accountable to the same standards.

    Remember, we had a coach fired for stupidity while drinking, are the players not held to that same standard?

    Whether the punishment will fit the crime in this case is yet to be determined, but I think (if all the allegations are true) MT will need to be let go, if only for the reason of showing others that the new regime will not tolerate this. (I have little sympathy for someone who messes up, gets a generous second chance, then promptly messes up again. If one is not smart enough to straighten up for two years of paid-for education and all the perks that come with being a college athlete, then he probably shouldn't be at said university in the first place.)

    Re: McDermott Interview Podcast

    It's a tough question. If I am understanding correctly, even though it was alcohol related, he essentially received a traffic ticket in Wisconsin.
    Now, he gets drunk at someone's apartment, and vandalizes property. Both of these happen in a one year period, so we see a possible pattern of behavior happening here.

    We have a men's basketball coach who has been lauded for being disciplined. He has already suspended the person in question, claiming that it was for academic reasons (which may be true). At this point, Taylor has been suspended from the team, pending any legal action.

    Well my take is that McDermott is letting the legal system take it's course (saves him from having to make a tough decision now). At the end of the day, I have to believe that Taylor will be found guilty. That is where the tough decision has to be made. I think we have seen the end of Mr Taylor in a Cyclone uniform.

    Whoa Whoa Whoa Jeremy... what's this about a dirty program??? Come on man, regardless of what happens in the Taylor situation, we are the furthest thing from a dirty program and you know it. I understand you're a little upset right now but seriously. I'm assuming having the contacts that you have, you are aware of our last coaching staffs dealings? Please don't use their attributes to describe the current staff. The word dirty has no business being thrown out right now regarding Greg or our basketball program, plain and simple, ESPECIALLY when we don't know ALL of the facts in the Taylor situation at this point. When the dust settles, then we can accurately judge, IMO.

    He never stated we have a dirty program. However, allowing this type of stuff would be us heading in that direction.
