    Tim Griffin's ISU Prediction vs. Army

    Just in case you hadn't seen it, here's what ESPN's Tim Griffin had to say about our game this weekend:

    Iowa State 33, Army 21: This should be an intriguing battle as two 2-1 teams coming off impressive victories over Mid-American Conference teams will meet. Iowa State will be gunning to beat its 2008 season win total with a victory Saturday night. The Cyclones rebounded from a struggling performance against Iowa with an impressive victory at Kent State that snapped a nation-worst 17-game road losing streak. Austen Arnaud orchestrated a strong performance as Alexander Robinson rushed for 143 yards for his second straight 100-yard game. The key for the Cyclones will be to contain Army’s option-based attack and force quarterback Trent Steelman into long-yardage passing situations. This one will be won in the trenches, and I like Iowa State’s chances because the Cyclones are more multi-faceted.

    Here's the link to the article for those interested.

    I don't think he's too far off, but I don't see Army scoring that many points. I think Army hangs around for about the first quarter and then we open up a double-digit lead in the 2nd quarter and continue to fine-tune the offense in the second half.

    So, last week, we were **** bags. This week, we are "more multi-faceted". WTF, dude? Make up your mind already.

    Griffin's reporting outside of TX is often questionable...

    Yep, he's a hack. He had a lot of trouble last week trying to figure out that Giorgio Morgan wasn't playing and that Eugene Jarvis was neither playing nor a quarterback.

    I'm surprised Griffin's breakdown didn't say this instead:

    Bret Meyer orchestrated a strong performance as Todd Blythe rushed for 143 yards for his second straight 100-yard game.

    You guys rip Tim for picking Kent State to win last week.

    This week He gives ISU a glowing endorsement and he still gets beat down. You guys don't really care what he writes you just want to scrap.

    No. It's the fact that he just spews crap. I bet he couldn't find Ames on a map.

    I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that he gave such a ****** effort last week.

    Would you say he's a sap? That he gives the Cyclones a bad rap? When ISU wins he won't clap?

    Alright, I need a nap.
