Northern Iowa knocked off Old Dominion 71-62 tonight in an electric McLeod Center in Cedar Falls, Iowa.  After the game, I caught up with Old Dominion head coach Blaine Taylor's mustache for an exclusive interview.

Drew Franklin: Tough loss out there tonight.  How do you feel about your team's performance?

Blaine Taylor's Mustache:
Blaine hasn't screamed like that in a very long time.  I was worried that I might be thrown from his upper lip.

DF:
That would've been a disaster!  Have you ever been detached from his face before?

BTM:
No, but I've had a few close calls.  Last year against Virginia Commonwealth in the CAA tournament was a tough game to hold on to.  And, when he eats pizza.  Not any pizza, just the Sicilian pizza at Del Vecchio's.

DF:
Del Vecchio's, huh?  Never heard of it.

BTM:
It's a local joint in Norfolk.  They have great lunch specials.

DF:
I'll have to try it out next time I'm in the Norfolk area.  But back to the game, your team went down early to start the game and never really got back into it.  Was the significance of this game and the national spotlight too overwhelming?

BTM:  
Honestly, I didn't see much of the first half.  I could tell by the explosiveness from the UNI crowd that we weren't doing well, but I couldn't actually see what happened on their early run.

DF:
How could you not see?  I was at the press table right across from your bench and you seemed to be into the game.

BTM:
Well, due to the inclimate weather, we were a little late arriving to the arena.  It was almost halftime before I completely thawed out.  I was still cold and damp for most of the 2nd half but at least I could see the game

DF:
The weather is pretty treacherous outside and I'm hearing it's only getting worse.  Are you traveling back tonight?

BTM:
 The assistants and the players are flying home as we speak.  I, however, have to fly out to Burbank for a Wario cover shoot and I'll be back in Norfolk by the end of the week.

DF:
Wario cover shoot?  You do media appearances too?

BTM:  
Oh yeah.  I was a stunt double for Tom Selleck's mustache in Magnum P.I.

DF:  
Wow.  You filled-in for one of the world's most famous mustaches and now you're coaching D-1 basketball.  What a life.  What's next for Blaine Taylor's mustache?

BTM:
I keep my options open.  I'm very career-minded and I understand that it's always important to keep growing.

DF:
Truer words have never been spoken.  Blaine's mustache, thanks for your time and travel safe.

Alan Cutler's Mustache and Blaine Taylor's Mustache should have a race.  Billy Gillespie could drop the flag at the start/finish line...only one restriction, though - Blaine Taylor's Mustache MAY NOT use one of the Mario Karts.

This kid is a shoe in for Stan Van Gundy's mustache in the future. Definitely a rising star. Drew you should be stoked you got him while he still in the CAA.

An Exclusive Interview with ODU's Head Mustache

You need to get Alan Cutler's mustache to chase Blaine Taylor's stash to find out the answers to the REAL journalistic questions: Is it true that it once got into a fight with Mark Spitz's mustache? What does he think of the tragedy of Adam Morrison's stash? And coach, when is Richie Farmer's mustache going to play more?

Crack me up!  Be careful traveling, don't take any chances.  You guys will make it happen whereever you are, just don't let it be in a snow bank, something tells me Drew didn't take a winter coat along.
