It has been discussed on Drakenation. I hope he sticks around at least 3-4 years.

Can't believe the Bears have a chance to go up 2 games on 80% of the Valley with a win tomorrow. Not a must win as road wins are hard to come by and 14 games are left but man, get this one tomorrow and I think a lot of people would jump back on the band wagon, including me.

Was gonna post this earlier but sat on it cause it felt hyperbolic: Medved might be the best hire in this conference since Marshall.

MVC Standings after 1/6


I know we have (me included) given it to the UNI guys about losing early games and being in jeopardy of playing Thursday, but even if they start 0-4, with a MSU win today, the Panthers are still only 2 games out of 3rd place.

That's the very optimistic look. You also have to remember that there would be 4 teams tied for 3rd. If your talking about UNI getting into the top three they would have to come from 0-4 and gain 2 games on all 4 teams to at least tie for 3rd. Not impossible but not probable.

MSU and ISUr involved in a high energy game. ISUr holds the advantage but MSU is closing the gap. ISU up by 5 with 13:30 to go. This should be a fun one to the finish!

Is he gonna pull a Keno or does it seem like he’ll hang around a few years?

Little Pitino is the situation to watch imo especially with the Reggie Lynch situation after they fired their FB coach last year for player sexual assault allegations. Niko’s alma mater is Minnesota and Drake came within a hair of beating them.

If no change there, coast likely clear.

MSU is now within 1 point of ISUr with 6:24 to go forcing an ISUr timeout. MSU seems to be scoring easier than ISUr but ISUr is forcing a lot of turnovers by being active in the passing lanes.

The Bears are up 1 at the under 4 timeout. This has been a great game of runs.

ISU hangs on to win 72-68. That was a great game between these two teams. Already excited to see the rematch of this game on the 30th.

I guess if the goal is to pick 50% correct, then you're on the right track!


5-3 so far 8-)
