    Re: FYI - Tim Griffin Likes the Clones This Week

    Iowa State 27, Baylor 24: The winner of this game should see its bowl hopes push ahead. The Cyclones have come close in their last two games, dropping a one-point loss to Kansas State on a blocked extra point and a tight six-point defeat last week to Kansas when a potential game-winning pass slid through the hands of Darius Darks late in the game. This time, the Cyclones will take advantage of their home field against Baylor, which will decide between Nick Florence and Blake Szymanski at quarterback. Something’s got to give as the Cyclones have an 11-game Big 12 losing streak and the Bears have lost 12 straight road games. I think the Cyclones are due to win a game on their home field after their near-misses the last two weeks.
    Timmy's up to his old tricks again. Darks never had his hands on that ball.

    Maybe not, but he is telling everyoone else in the country that we are a pretty good football team. What he said about us was not bad. Take the good when we can get it.

    Meh, the way he writes it does more justice to the excitement at the end of the game. If he had written "The Cyclones came close but Arnaud overthrew Darius Darks in the endzone" or something like that it makes it sound like the pass wasn't even close.

    Ah...if only Darius would've laid out for that one

    Re: FYI - Tim Griffin Likes the Clones This Week

    Look at it this way. Griffin picked us to beat KSU and we lost and then picked us to get plastered by KU and we lost.

    So it's a wash. His good/bad luck charm starts over.

    Actually, I just noticed ol' Timmy's overall season record and he's doing quite well. 43-13 (76.8%) overall.

    Re: FYI - Tim Griffin Likes the Clones This Week

    Griffin liking the Cyclones is usually a very bad sign. I honestly prefer it when he's ******* in our Cheerios- first, we've proven him wrong every time he's done so, second, he usually ends up making himself foolish in the process, usually long before the game, and we get to rip on him for days.

    lets be honest, over the past couple years, the odds were in favor of us losing no matter what way he picked.

    Re: FYI - Tim Griffin Likes the Clones This Week

    On Monday he reported that we lost two games last Saturday. But after checking my sources it turns out we only lost once.

    "11. Kansas State: The Cyclones took a huge step backward after getting blown out in a 66-14 loss at Texas Tech"
