    Pat Forde's Prediction

    Per the Forde Yard Dash: Dash through the 2009 bowl season and find out which teams will win - ESPN

    Insight Bowl

    Minnesota vs. Iowa State
    Dec. 31, Tempe, Ariz. (NFL Network, 6 ET)



    Why to watch: Because nothing gets the party started like a matchup of 6-6 teams.


    Who's happier to be there: Both teams should be happy to flee the Midwest for New Year's in the desert. But the happiness edge goes to the Cyclones, who haven't been bowling since 2005.


    Moderately useful Dash fact: Iowa State (23) might be the nation's ultimate rope-a-dope defense. The Cyclones are 99th in yards allowed (414 per game) but 43rd in points allowed (22.6).


    Completely useless Dash fact: Iowa State's only two victories over Minnesota came in the 19th century: 1897 and '98, to be exact. Gophers lead the all-time series 22-2-1.


    Dash pick: Minnesota 24, Iowa State 17.

    Re: Pat Forde's Prediction

    He's an idiot anyway. I remember him saying in 07 that Florida would beat Michigan by at least 20. He was wrong. He is wrong a lot and I cannot stand his arrogant demeanor. I despise this man.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Re: Pat Forde's Prediction

    I take him as more of a smarta** than arrogant, but I still think he hasn't done much research into this game if he has to go back to the 1800's for supporting facts as to who might win.

    Nevermind the fact that he labeled that as the "Useless Dash fact"

    I enjoy him for his take on the Hawks this year.

    Re: Pat Forde's Prediction

    I thought it was pretty funny. He wasn't trying to do and indepth analysis of every game. I admire the fact that he looked at more than one statistical category of the defense, i.e. being 99th in defense (yards allowed) as it doesn't give a completely accurate picture of the defense, such as the points allowed as he pointed out.

    I know- that is why I am saying his whole prediction is useless and he is just being a smarta**.

    Don't like his prediction but the rope-a-dope defense I like.

    Re: Pat Forde's Prediction

    I'm sure it took him a good three minutes to research and write up that prediction. Isn't this the same guy that had K-State going to a bowl even though they lost to Nebraska and could not become bowl eligible?

    Who said they were? If you're referring to the (23) next to ISU's name, that's part of his column - the Forde Yard Dash.
