Drake gets more props

At one point I was disappointed in Duquesne for losing to Drake but now Drake is getting so much love for their 8-1 start that I almost feel honored to have lost to them.

SI.com is the latest publication that has jumped on the Drake bandwagon:

"Keno's Drake Bulldogs are 8-1, with their only loss coming at Saint Mary's, the nation's top-ranked team in the RPI. In early December, Josh Young and Leonard Houston combined for 39 points in Drake's 79-44 drubbing of Iowa State. The 35-point margin of victory was the Bulldogs biggest in 167 meetings with the Cyclones. This past week, Des Moines-based Drake crushed Chicago State 83-53 and demolished Texas-Pan American 83-55. On Friday, the Bulldogs travel to hapless Iowa, where I expect the good times to continue. Now, in honor of the presidential campaign, try saying "caucus" 10 times fast. Caucus, caucus, caucus, caucus..."

That is a big trophy for the Drake Regency Classic, is someone compensating for something?


If love from people like SI.com wasn't enough Drake received 6 votes in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll.
