here's the link
JJHuddle.com - Graham's Taylor granted release from Iowa State, opens recruiting again.
Nothing can be true with out a link.
well, that is a bummer, but he was the one I was kind of expecting to leave
That p's me off, our athletic department needs to grow a pair and do what VT did when Brands left!!!!!!!
Can it be a conditional release saying he can't go to Penn State? Kind of like what they did with Wesley Johnson.
did ya see all the iowa fans cryin about the curtain again
In this case it doesn't matter much. It's an LOI and if ISU didn't release he could still attend the school of his choosing and sit out next year. He's probably going to RS wherever he goes anyway so there's not much effect.
Now, if we start giving our current guys unconditional releases I think that's a suspect decision. (Except Cyler)
Taylor ends up at PSU.
Doesn't matter a whole lot as he would probably sit out next year regardless. It's the guys that have already burnt their redshirt that have something to gain when granted a release. Might as well be diplomatic with the new guys and not get bad rep with future recruits.
I was really hoping he would remain a Cyclone. I think he'll have a GREAT career, where ever he goes. To bad it woun't be Ames.
I hope we don't lose Weatherman.
I know it doesn't matter but it sets bad precident. Evn though he would have sat out somewhere next year it would have forced him to pay his own way.
It may set a bad precedent if we didn't grant a release.
I saw that. I'm not a big fan of the curtain, but I don't like the idea of having 10,000 Hawk fans in Hilton either.
As much as I hate it, I guess it was inevitable that we were going to lose Taylor. Next year better be a great season, because if we lose more of the top recruits, then it could be a few years before KJ gets us back in the top 5 and competitive against Iowa and Oky State.
I get where you are coming from and you bring up a good point. For me when it comes to not granting releases for recruits I think that's when you cross the line to vindictive. Things have changed, the high school kid doesn't want to come here, we can't make him come here, and there's no need to take out frustrations on a 17-18 year old.
Your point is certainly based on the rules though. It's an interesting debate.
In Kevin Jackson's press conference he was wondering what Hilton would hold and Pollard said about 15,000 and Kevin said "Maybe we can cram another couple thousand in somehow." At least that is how I remember it. To me that sounds like the curtain would not be there if Coach has anything to do with it. Does anyone know whether the curtain was Jamie's idea or Cael's??
Jamie recently claimed it was Cael's. I'm not convinced.
However, it's water under the bridge. If there's a curtain this year, we'll know.
