    Seemingly Unbiased prediction

    From the KC Star:

    Sports Network Predicted Outcome: Iowa State 27, Iowa 24

    Iowa (1-0) at Iowa State (1-0) - Kansas City Star

    Finally, some actually well thought-out analysis!

    Some well thought out analysis? All they did was recap last weeks games for both teams.

    I guess you're right. If it was a little bit more in depth, they would have said a few more things like "but it was only NDSU" or "the Hawks beat a UNI offense that is clearly better than ISU"...

    I think that is the first time I have liked something in the Star for months.

    Yeah. How else would you make a prediction for the coming week? Just another butt-hurt hok fan because his team wasn't picked to win by 50 over lowly Iowa State.

    Re: Seemingly Unbiased prediction

    So its unbiased because they picked ISU? I'm guessing it would be biased according to you if they picked Iowa.

    Hate to say it, but I agree with you LeSchmick. The OP should probably have titled the thread "K.C. Star's ISU-Iowa prediction" or something like that.

    Not at all. If it was truly biased, why pick the final score so close? I thought it was a decent review. Realistic people will pick a close score with either team as the victor. There are just too many unknowns on both sides.

    Unbiased meaning it didn't come from a blatantly obvious homer from either side. (as have many of the other published predictions posted here.)

    Re: Seemingly Unbiased prediction

    It was unbiased because the prediction wasn't based on the writers personal opinion of either team. The writer based the prediction on how the teams played in their first games. If he had looked at the first games and thought that Iowa had played better than Iowa State, he probably would have picked Iowa. That is not how the first games went down. That is why it is unbiased.

    I'm not sure I can take a write-up seriously when the author misspells the fourth word of the story...
