    Additional info on Mike Taylor from a football player...

    I was talking to the football player I've gotten to know and we started talking about the Mike Taylor situation. He said...

    "H
    e's not to bright, he's been in trouble more than once up here".

    When I asked what else other than the 2 incidents we're aware of he said...

    "
    I'm not sure exactly what, I just know he doesn't need too much free time to get into trouble. The thing from yesterday is just one situation."

    I don't know how much stock to put into this, seeing how he didn't know any specifics. It just seems to be the case that Mike has a reputation in Ames for being a trouble maker.

    Re: Additional info on Mike Taylor from a football player...

    He might have the bad rep in Ames, but he doesn't anywhere else. Nobody has made a big deal out of his latest deal besides us. It's not like I turn on ESPN and it's scrolling on the bottomline. As long as the other(alleged) stuff remains private then I don't see the problem. If a tree falls and nobody is there to hear it, does it make a sound?

    It does if you're Greg McDermott and you're trying to run a clean program.

    Re: Additional info on Mike Taylor from a football player...

    Really? I guess that surprises me just a little. I've talked to Mike a few times this year (I run into him at meals a lot) and he really seems like a nice guy. Maybe not a genius, but he seemed intelligent enough. On the other hand, this little display may have proved my impression wrong...


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    My third cousin's dad heard from a guy that Taylor is a bad man too...I say we stone him! I mean come on guys...a person who plays a different sport at the same university doesn't know what, but he thinks Taylor has gotten in some other trouble? We should head over to Monty's and get down to the bottom of this.



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    It's information from a guy who apparently knows Mike or knows people who do know him relatively well. Why does that not hold any validity? I don't know Steve Alford personally, nor do I know anyone who knows him. Am I completely wrong for assuming that he's probably an arrogant jerk?

    Why? Because it happened a whole 24 hours ago and we don't know yet what is going to happen to our leading scorer?

    Yeah, I'm with you. I can't tell why these people have any interest in the story either.

    Nobody else in the country is besides this site. Hell, even at HR you barely find anything on it. Nobody cares because there's nothing to this story. Now, maybe there is more that we don't know about, but until then there's no reason to worry.

    Talking about Alford and spring practice is so much more fun.

    You might not be wrong, but then again you might be. You have no clue since you don't know him. The exact quote from the "source" when asked about what other offenses Taylor had supposedly committed was "I'm not sure exactly what". To me that tells me that this source doesn't really hold a lot of water. What he says might be true, but it is just as likely that it's not.

    Big shocking story..

    I heard that a basketball player forgot to make his bed this morning and a wrestler got a C on a paper.

    Fair enough. I'm not going to indict him, but I'm going with the probable cause on this one.

    Re: Additional info on Mike Taylor from a football player...

    You can put stock in it, I've heard he's had several close calls since he's been here.

    That doesn't bode well for his future if you ask me.
