    Thumbs up Iowa State @ Texas A&M: Statistical Comparison

    All Statisitics are pulled from the NCAA Website and each team's Athletics Website and are official.



    Good luck Saturday. I will return to post my prediction form as well once I have it up and running (around lunchtime). It's a Shared Google Form that allows the user to input their prediction for the game, and the results are displayed in a summarized spreadsheet.

    Thanks,

    Re: Iowa State @ Texas A&M: Statistical Comparison

    That's pretty cool.

    I was looking at the opponents records for each team; remember when NDSU thought they were going to walk in and beat us?

    I'm embarassed that we didn't win by more after seeing how their year has gone so far....

    I feel like I am looking at two character profiles from World of Warcraft. Our Level 9 Wizard will totally pwn your Level 20 Sherman Mage.

    Re: Iowa State @ Texas A&M: Statistical Comparison

    Breezes was the best I could come up with, sorry... I try to poke a little fun at whomever the Ags are playing each week:

    Arkansas = Piglets (Miss Piggy Icon)
    OSU = Stunned Aggies (Stunned Aggie Icon)
    K-State = Cuddle Kitties (Hello Kitty Icon)
    TTech = Sand Fleas (Yosemite Sam Icon)

    Now it's ISU, and the best I could do was gusts or breezes... It's lame, but there you have it.

    The predicted score in the middle of the spreadsheet is a calculation based on points per yard gained and +/- % offense and defense. It's fairly complicated. It has not been very accurate so far due to the debacle at KSU and our turnaround beating of Texas Tech...

    I do think this game will be close (within a touchdown), but I have to give it to my Ags. We're at Home, and Kyle Field will be rocking. Both teams just came off a huge HIGH beating teams that they have not beaten on the road in YEARS...

    Our keys to the game will be scoring early in order to force you guys to go to your passing game, limiting turnovers (you guys are good in this department, and our only lapse was against KSU), and hopefully, stopping your run game.

    Has there been any news on Arnaud or Robinson? I read an AP report last night that Robinson was practicing Sunday even though his groin was still hurt. Arnaud is day-to-day with his bruised throwing hand, correct?

    Good luck Saturday

    I'd be happy to change any erronious information, if you'd be kind enough to point it out. TIA

    Means the score is 31 - 31 can you do a OT chart too?

    Love the predicted score - 31-31. Would be a hell of a game to watch on TV. ******* Big 12 TV package...

    Word is Robinson has participated in practice this week for the first time since the Army game a month ago, which is a very good sign. It sounds like he's going to be ready to go come Saturday, although he'll likely be splitting PT with Schwartz, especially after his performance against Nebraska (it wasn't statistically noteworthy as much as it was courageous against one of the best D lines in the country).

    As far as Arnaud, it sounds like it will be a game time decision, unless things change during practice this week. The swelling in his hand is going down slowly, and he's able to hold the football now, but as of yesterday he can't grasp the football hard enough in order to zip the ball downfield.

    My wife wouldn't appreciate that ;) It takes about an hour to do all that, really not that long of a time actually... Most fans appreciate seeing the numbers side to side.

    The 31 to 31 score is what my predictor calculation spit out. If I had to guess, I'd put it at 38-30, Aggies... I am sure most of you will disagree, but that's why we're fans ;)

    Good luck Saturday

    No, it's the first time he has participated in practice that early in the week (Sunday practice) since the week of the Army game. He's been practicing later in the week for the other games from what I understand.
