Iowa Hawkeyes Basketball Predictions // Wins and Losses Pt. 3

Standard

Big Ten play begins tonight for the Hawks, as they play their final game in 2013 against the Nebraska Cornhuskers at home in Carver Hawkeye Arena. That brings us to Part 3 of our 4 piece season long Iowa Hawkeyes Basketball Predictions.

We thought we could squeeze it into 3 but we decided to bring you a four bagger instead. As of right now, surprise surprise, Adam is ahead of Nick in picking the Hawks season. Only by one game, but c’mon man a wins a win. Especially over your brother.

Nothing has been won yet, besides 11 games by the University of Iowa men’s basketball team. Nick’s record resembles that as he picked 11 of those games correctly – having no faith in the Hawks playing in the Big 10 vs ACC Tournament Challenge.Screen Shot 2013-12-31 at 3.43.17 PM

And while 11 wins entering Big Ten play is far from a disappointment, it is really tough to forget how close those 2 losses were and coulda been, shoulda been wins. Plus to Iowa State?! Like kissing your sister. Good thing we don’t have one.

But moving right along. This is where things get good. The heart of the season. It’s time to put up or shut up. And while the Oh’s Knows predicting the final season record for the Hawkeyes, they most certainly didn’t see eye to eye in the Big Ten.

WinsLossesPt3One of us clearly feels differently about Wisconsin and Illinois than the other. But both brothers agree that playing Ohio State and Michigan State is going to be trouble.

You never know, especially with these Hawks this season. College basketball can get crazy. Half court shots, buzzer beaters, triple overtime games – we could go undefeated!

Well we aren’t that crazy. But here’s to hoping that the first half of Big Ten play goes better than Adam thinks it might..

On Iowa – Go Hawks!

LISTEN: Oh’s Knows #21 // Year in Review (12-30-13)

Standard

IMG_5504There’s no mention of Jerry Jones this week. We look back at some of our favorite sports memories of the year, including a few we attended – mainly the ones we didn’t attend. As well as recall the ACL Music Festival and talk about some of our favorite blog posts we made since our start back in September – like the “The Greatest Roast of All-Time” that still makes us laugh to this day! Hope everyone has a happy, happy, happy new year!

Adam’s favorite sports memory of 2013 was Auburn’s win in the Iron Bowl. Also, was 50 years late but had a blast watching the original Batman with Adam West – crowning it the greatest movie of all time.

Nick’s favorite sports memory of 2013 was Ray Allen’s 3 pointer that send the Heat to overtime to beat the Spurs in the NBA Finals. Also, thoroughly enjoyed seeing Noah and The Whale at the ACL Music Festival.

BBB: Results // As of 11/25/13

Standard

Six games in the books and it’s not looking pretty for little Nicky. But you know what the best part about Bowl Season is? We are just getting started! There are 29 games left! And if you are into comedy like us, you know that there are 2 dozen teams playing bowl games in January, and playing in January just doesn’t mean the same as it use to.. according to Iowa State Athletics twitter account – wait, what? The Cyclones have never played a Bowl Game in January! How would they know if it’s the same as it use to be?! = COMEDY!

NFL Power Rankings After Week 16

Standard
The AFC has one open spot, yet only one seed is determined.  Meanwhile, they NFC has three spots open, and no seeding determined.  It is going to be a great week for some football.  Here’s how things are looking going into the finals week:

  1. BroncosDenver Broncos (12-3) LW (2) – As if it wasn’t already decided, Peyton pretty much locked up the best regular season QB of all time. All he needs is a little over 200 yards and he’ll the most yards AND touchdown’s in a season.  Now let’s just see him do it in the playoffs… without the team’s best defensive player.  Good luck.
  2. NinersSan Francisco 49ers (11-4) LW (4) – Winners of 5 straight, they still have a chance for a first round bye, with a win over the Cardinals.   They also have a chance to end up with the #6 seed with a loss.  The wild card teams this year are going to be good.
  3. SeahawksSeattle Seahawks (12-3) LW (1) – In the beginning of the year, a win over the Rams would have been a given.  Now not so much.  A win still gives them home field advantage throughout the playoffs, while a loss could result in a #5 seed and a 3-3 division record on the year. Wow is the NFC West stacked.
  4. PanthersCarolina Panthers (11-4) LW (7) – A win over the lowly Falcons and they have a first round bye.  A Seahawks loss to the Rams + a 49ers win over the Cardinals and they have home field advantage.  Let that soak in.  Riverboat Ron has done wonders this year.  Let’s just see if he can continue that success in the post season.
  5. PatriotsNew England Patriots (11-4) LW (5) – This week was the first time they’ve looked good in the second half of the season.  It’s a perfect time for them because if they lose this week, they could end up with the #4 seed. Let’s go Bills!!
  6. BengalsCincinnati Bengals (10-5) LW (8) – With the game clearly out of hand, Marvin Lewis wanted to make a statement going into the final week, continuing to let Andy Dalton torch the Vikings.  Now, they need to avenge their week 10 loss to the Ravens to give them the #3 seed at worst.
  7. CardinalsArizona Cardinals (10-5) LW (9) – So the Cardinals could win and still not make the playoffs?  That just doesn’t seem fair.  The West has 3 teams clearly better than anyone in the NFC North or East, but if the Saints win this week, then we could see an 11-5 or 10-6 Cardinals team watching the playoffs from home.
  8. ColtsIndianapolis Colts (10-5) LW (10) – And they’re back?  Looking for their first marquee win since Broncos in week 7, they were able to knock off their potential first round matchup in the playoffs, the KC Chiefs.  Potential is the key word, as they could still end up with a first round bye or the #3 seed.  They just need the Bengals and/or Patriots to lose this week.
  9. CheifsKansas City Chiefs (11-4) LW (3) – That bye week has been the worst thing in the world for this team.  They’re 2-4 since then and are now firmly locked in the #5 seed so I suppose they shouldn’t even try against Rivers and Co. this week.  They’re still a scary matchup in the first round of the playoffs… As long as they give the ball to Charles.
  10. SaintsNew Orleans Saints (10-5) LW (6) Never has a team been more dependent on home field advantage.  They are 7-0 at home, while boasting a 3-5 record on the road. Lucky for them, the #2 seed is still a possibility for them as long as Panthers lose this week.
