Hats off to Maxwell Smart...

...because I missed it by that much.

Last night's pre-game prediction: 27-23, SIU.

Last night's result: 27-24, SIU.

Apparently the folks in Cedar Falls, Iowa are reading the blog.

Or I had a really good night at predicting.

As for my picks to click: Larry Warner scored two touchdowns and Brandin Jordan intercepted a pass and recovered the fumble which led to Kyle Dougherty's game winning field goal.

This is a much better feeling than what happened last time I made a bold prediction.

Way to make me look good, SIU.
