Well, shortly after that Allen must have gotten tired of all the hassle it takes to reduce your dreads, because he returned them to normal, taking the court with the Jae Crowder-approved double rubber bands look (photo above). And all was well for a couple of weeks. But just when it seemed safe to watch ISU games again, I tuned to their game last Saturday night at Northern Iowa - only to see that Bryant's dreads were gone. Dreads that had been growing for 13 years! Allen had them cut off earlier in the week, saying, "I just needed a change. It was one of those times in my life I needed to take another step and mature ..."
You know, when someone has dreads for that long, I can't fault him for wanting a change. But I'll tell you, B, we're really going to miss those dreads.
Still reeling from that news, the second shock wave hit about 48 hours later when I found out that the starting QB on the dread all-America team that I just did doesn't have dreads anymore.
Actually he had already cut them off right after the end of last season; but apparently nobody in the media had seen him until now. What a shame. "Nobody made me cut it; I just wanted a new look," said Munchie about why he said goodbye to dreadlocks that he had grown for more than 8 years.
Life goes on, as it always does. But life in the house won't be as much fun without Allen and Legaux around anymore.
