    Chances against Drake?

    With Drake's media day yesterday, seems a lot of folks are fairly high on Drake. Nice group coming back, plus a transfer from Cal-Irvine is making some noise.

    We got it seriously handed to us last year....

    Probably one, if not, the most interesting home non-conferece game this year. I would of never thought that 3 years ago...

    Hopefully we've jelled some by that time....always seems like we lose a couple early whereas later in the year we are different team and wish we could replay some of those early games.

    Re: Chances against Drake?

    Drake should be able to handle us pretty well if the new coach doesn't get in the way.

    Re: Chances against Drake?

    i think we have a good chance... its tough for them since they lost korver, emmenecker, and houston. still cox, and young are very good and they have some other solid players. i still like our chances though because CB will dominate inside.

    How sad is it that Drake is this team we hope to beat at home this year?

    I predict an ugly close game with us walking away in victory. A real eye opener for the newbies.

    I don't see this happening at all. Heemskirk is too strong and smart inside to get dominated.

    I dont really think its sad at all. If Drake is becoming a higher level of competition then Im all for quality games. If they sucked every year then yeah, it would be sad. We could go back to our almost loss against Morningside in 2000 for a sad day. That was a pretty seasoned team of ours.

    I must have been in a cave when Josh Young was thinking about transferring to Okie State this offseason. They were talking about it yesterday and it was new info to me.

    We're not going to lose 3 in a row to Drake, right? Right? And two in a row to them at home, right?

    Re: Chances against Drake?

    I'm not as confident as cybsball, but I think Drake will win. Secondary prediction - third loss in a row to UNI followed by the loss to Drake a week later causes nigh bandwidth meltdown on CycloneFanatic. We will need to don suits like the guy from Half-Life to protect our retina from burning.

    You have to admit, its a cool suit. Would be worth a try on.

    I truly think Drake is going to suck this year. .500 at best.

    This game, like most games....will be won or lost in the backcourt. Our recent failures is a clear indication of that. Hopefully Petey, DG and Buck can hold their own against Young, Parker and company.

    This would lead to a very high traffic. Advertisers would be happy. Cyclone fans not so much.

    Drake is going to be a quality team this year. It will be interesting to see what Phelps is going to do as far as a system and if he will be able to use the players he has and be successful his first season.
