Taylors child is sueing in federal court to make his school system let him wear his hair braided. If troopers boy does not want to play by the rules set fourth by the administration he does not need to try to play jr high basketball or go to a private school where they will let him.
This is an ignorant comment. There are no rules against hair styles in the public school system. If anything a private school would have more authority over his hair style. This topic has alreay gotten way more attention than it desserves on AUC.

Dyin' ain't much of a living, boy - you know who
Other kids on the team (caucasians) are allowed to wear their hair long without any issue - - - why they should treat Troop's son differently is the issue...... No doubt I agree with the Taylor's in this case....
WAR DAMN EAGLE!
The coach is an Auburn institution, and also happens to be black. He is particularly revered in Auburn's black community for the positive influence he has had on young men's lives for over 30 years now.
I would like to see evidence that white kids are able to keep their hair long before believing that there is a double standard in play. If there is, in fact, a double-standard, that should be remedied. As long as he is consistent, discipline is a good thing.
I'm betting that he is doing it because of who he is not what he is and using daddys name to try to sway this thing.
Brother, I barked up this tree earlier this week and got lambasted. Good luck. I got 11 down votes before i removed my name from the whole thing.
And I'll say what I said previously, Auburn High's athletic director should've never let it get this far. When you have multi-sport atheletes in a public or private school, you have a united front with one standard NOT a standard by sport. This is unfortunate and was avoidable.

I still want to know: If Coach Chizik has a dress code, and I believe he does, how is that different from this respected high school coach. Maybe he is wrong about making hair an issue. Is Coach Chizik wrong about making something similer an issue? I thing Trooper Taylor is great, and my emotional bias is to think he is right. The last thing I want is for him to give in if he is right and it is best for his son, regardless of his position with AU football.
