Tory Taylor pokes fun at Iowa State fans ahead of Cy-Hawk clash

Few Iowa Hawkeyes can give as good of a glimpse into the feeling of playing at Jack Trice Stadium as punter Tory Taylor. The most popular punter in America had some fun with the Iowa State fanbase ahead of the Hawkeyes’ clash with the Cyclones on Saturday.

“Well I can really just remember I guess how humble and modest their fans are out there,” Taylor commented, his thick Australian accent struggling to mask the sarcasm in his voice. “It’s a pretty nice place to play. It’s not like there’s 8-year-olds hanging over the fence, giving you the rude finger or anything like that. So yeah, excited to go back there and enjoy such a pleasant environment.”

It should be noted that while mostly deadpan through that entire statement, a smile did start to break through at the very end. With some fun out of the way, Taylor spoke candidly about what the upcoming contest means to him.

“All jokes aside, it’s probably my favorite game of the year. My favorite game that I’ve probably ever played was at Iowa State a couple of years ago. It was obviously a big matchup, which it is every year. Every game is pretty big, but, yeah, that was a fun game.

“I’m very excited. Just looking forward to going back out there, because didn’t really have that good of a game this past weekend, so looking to rectify a few things,” Taylor said.
