    Cyclones/Bulldogs Predictions

    My prediction is up for tomorrow night's game on my Cyclones blog...hopefully I can watch it come true in between the railings from my crappy "front row of the second level" seats

    ISU/Drake Mock Prediction by Jerry Hales
    :: December 4th, 2007 :: 10:22 am


    I’m thinking about dropping my entire bankroll of Cyclone Fanatic credits on this game. Since there isn’t a line out for it yet, it is currently sitting at a pick-em. In past years, ISU has found it difficult to win at the Knapp Center, and even the year we went to the Elite Eight and got robbed by the S word (starts with an S, rhymes with fartans) we lost at Drake. Despite all this, I already know what is going to happen tonight, and I am going to share my big hairy knowledge with you so that you too can reap the credits.


    The Drake fans are on their feet early, as the outside threats of Klayton Korver, Leonard Houston, and Josh Young each connect from deep. The Clones fight their way back by dominating the paint on both ends, and at the half it is Drake 32-ISU 28. While the Clones are down, the good news is that nobody has more than one foul, while Bulldog post players Jonathan Cox and Brent Heemskerk are both in foul trouble with 2 each.


    Right before the halftime show ends, Cy gives the Cyclone fans something to cheer about, as he offers his hand to Drake’s mascot, Spike. Being a well trained dog, Spike raises a paw to shake. Cy grabs his paw, threads it back between Spike’s hind legs, and starts cranking out the “pump handle” move on him. As Spike howls in pain, the Bulldogs take the floor, the Cyclone fans cheer for Cy, and he raises his wings in victory. As Cy lets go, Spike snarls and bounds towards the tunnel. As he streaks across the court, Klayton Korver is going in for a layup and gets in the way. Still in pain and seeing red, Spike reacts and clamps down on Korver’s shooting hand. When the trainers finally pull him off, the hand is already bruising. They take Korver down to the locker room to get checked out and take Spike out of the arena to calm down.


    Korver’s prognosis comes back that he is done for the night but will be back with a day or two. With one less shooter on the court, the Cyclones are able to slow down Drake’s perimeter attack and take the lead. Down the stretch, Craig Brackins and Jiri Hubalek are dominant inside, finishing with 44 points and 25 rebounds between them. ISU is able to make their free throws and hold on to win 64-57. After the game, the players all remove their jerseys to again show off the “Free Lucca” cut off shirts underneath. In the post game press conference, a Bulldog team spokesperson announces that the Korvers have requested that Spike be “sent away to the family farm”.


    Well, that’s how I foresee this one. Good luck with your wagers, and if it comes down to it I would be happy to adopt Spike instead of seeing him come to any harm.

    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    I bet my farm on it too. I think the cyclones will be victorious. I think the newbies got a taste of a decent road victory and will use that for this game.

    I honestly think we lose tomorrow and this board reaches Orange Alert.

    To me it's a pick 'em. But I do agree the board will meltdown if we lose.

    Hopefully a "database error" shows up at the appropriate time (should we in fact lose), allowing for a cooling off period.

    Re: Cyclones/Bulldogs Predictions

    So are we saying that Drake is better than OSU? Or just that we have some trouble at Drake. I really think we can win this. It will put us on a small win streak that will hopefully let us pound Iowa.
