EMERGENCY BACKUP DOUBLE GAMETHREAD IN A GAMETHREAD HERE




- I'm growing a wee bit worried about Mr. Opper, who hasn't been seen or heard from since we got blown out 10-3 by Rutgers. (yes, I know a one score margin does not typically constitute blowout. I also went to that game. we got whipped.) Then I remembered: retail. Just in case, backup gamethread since we're lucky enough to have football and basketball playing [future]AT THE SAME DAMN TIME[/Future]. Important statistical analysis below.

Iowa State vs. Cincinnati

Location: whatever UNLV's stadium is called, 6:30pm Friday

Records: both 4-0

TV/Radio: CBS Sports Network (1322 on TW, 613 on DirecTV, 219 on FiOptics, 531 on Insight)/ WEBN 102.7 or http://www.iheart.com/live/1701/

screw statistical analysis. they're good, we're gooder. Sean Kilpatrick guarding Will Clyburn is a bit worrisome, however. they run a lot and jack up a lotta threes.

Pick: Cincy 87-75.
