The New Face of Taylor Wyndham

Taylor Wyndham is the Wayne Turner of Kentucky basketball. By that I mean that he has been at Kentucky playing an important role all four years, making it seem as if he has been at the school for 40 years. We met him when he knocked out Tebow and now we see him becoming the scariest looking player in all of America. By now you have probably seen the picture below, a bearded Taylor Wyndham, wearing war paint and intimidating the hell out of all that cross his path. The picture above was Wyndham around the time of the Tebow hit. The picture below is woodsman Wyndham ready to inflict pain and scare children. Which one you got?

    Judging from his 5 O’clock shadow above, it looks like it took about a week to get that beard up.

    An entirely appropriate look for the anti-Tebow…

    Seriously what has he done since he sacked Tebow??…. Looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane.

    Matt, listened to your show this morning and for the life of me i did not know that the Hanson Brother’s were the “Marvin Gaye” of the 80’s. Too funny.

    You lost me after your first sentence, which should correctly read: “Taylor Wyndham is the Wayne Turner of Kentucky football.” The analogy, as stated, makes no sense.

    So is he not shaving until Kentucky wins another game? If so, ZZ Top is waiting for you.

    He needs to embrace his inner beast as well. Looks like tarzan, plays like jane.

    Listening to the podcast. Rose is such a sunshine pumper. How can you be that excited about one game where Georgia was looking ahead? We have dumb fans.

    Wouldn’t Wayne Turner be the Wayne Turner of Kentucky basketball?

    “intimidating the hell out of all that cross his path.” I can only assume that doesn’t include opposing players.

    This picture reminds me of Lattimer weeping on the bench at the end of The Program.

    14 – Thanks! I couldn’t for the life of me figure out the meaning of Matt’s analogy until I read your comment!

    #11 – He has 13 solo tackles on the year. That’s 1.6 tackles a game. He has two sacks. Nothing beast about those numbers.

    Snuggie (#19) – I was a little confused as well. Doesn’t Matt mean that Taylor Wyndham is the Wayne Turner of Kentucky FOOTBALL?

    Since most of your readers aren’t old enough to remember Wayne Turner, wouldn’t it be more appropriate to say he’s the Darius Miller of Kentucky basketball? Or football?

    So does he shave his arms?

    This pic sits right above the Vandy cheerleader pic.
    I can’t say I’ve ever seen a more jarring set of pics right next to eachother, anywhere.

    I saw him at Kenneland on Friday. And he is a scary looking dude. And also, he has been one of the bright spots on the defense. Those of you saying he plays like Jane must not have paid much attention.

    He’s way too hot for that beard and hair, he needs to go back to lookin like the first picture. And if you dont think Taylor is a good football player, you obviously havent been watching him play over the years. He started some as a freshmen, and if you recall we had an experienced defense that year.

    @33 I agree he is hot but I do like the beard though.

    I say we should have ALL of the UK football players go for this look. And while we’re at it, put some viking helmets and old school armor on them. At least they will LOOK like badazzes! Maybe it would go to their head and they would try to rip some heads off our there on the field! Couldn’t hurt.

    The “Wayne Turner” reference is simply a turrible comparison! Wayne Turner was one of the best PGs in college his last year at UK. What is Taylor Windham nation’s best at? Being out of position and making no plays to impact outcome of the game on the DL???

    Look at what playing for Kentucky does to a person…

    Like the kid, decent player and tries hard. But the Halloween facepaint is silly. I’d never stop laughing if lined up across from him, and I’m in my 50s. Plus, agree with #37–Wayne Turner was unstoppable and a champion. Ask Duke.
