Tourney Look Alikes - Part 2 - Northern Iowa

While watching the Northern Iowa/Kansas game Saturday I couldn't help but notice a few more striking resemblances.

The picture above is of Jordan Eglseder (Back) and Lucas O'Rear (Front). Also known as...


And Fezzik from "The Princess Bride" (Andre the Giant):

However the Northern Iowa team wouldn't be where it is today without the help of hero Ali Farokhmanesh...

Any ideas for his look alike? So far all I got is Charlie from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"...but I think the beard throws it off. Also - the 90 year old coach on their bench looks like Yoda...


  1. YES! Yes. Those are dead on. I can't wait to see those guys up against Nix and Green and Raymar next weekend.

    Hadn't thought of the Charlie-Ali parallel. I'll work on something.

  2. Yea...the Charlie-Ali might be a stretch, just had to get him in there somewhere. I will need to brainstorm further.

    Sidenote: How quick are Delvon Roe's reactions? He shoulda been drilled in the face by Green's pass...and why was Green taking the ball up court? That whole last sequence was comedy gold. I wonder what was going through Izzo's head??

  3. Well, they did keep telling us that Draymond was a great passer...

    With Kalin out, might as well start him at the point!
