    Maybe less gambling threads

    About teams no one has ever heard of or teams no one cares about? It seems like each week there are about 10 threads for betting on games like IUPUI or Western International Columbian Cocaine University that no one has even heard of, let alone cares about, plastered on the front page.

    I get that it takes a while to create the betting threads, but seriously. Iowan's United on Peeing Uraguandian style In cereal is not a school anyone cares about. If the front page is going to be bogged with betting threads, at least make them match ups that people might actually give a **** about.


    He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.

    Re: Maybe less gambling threads

    They quickly fall off the first page when people post in other threads. This thread will have the same fate.

    Re: Maybe less gambling threads

    It's true that the disappear quickly, but for those of us that don't have time to camp on here all the time, it is annoying to drop in looking to see what folks are talking about and see that half of the threads are gambling threads of total disinterest to ISU fans.

    'camp out on here'? They disappear within a couple minutes.

    This has been covered before, dont think its changing.

    It's like soccer... but not really. It's addicting.

    Back on topic. This is a site full of degenerate gamblers and your asking them to gamble less? Good luck with that.

    Re: Maybe less gambling threads

    Speaking of gambling degenerates, two outstanding ones I have hope for:
    1) ISU to be the #1 seed in the Big 12 tourney. OK, not a lot of hope, but it's something.
    2) ISU to go over 21.5 wins.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Maybe less gambling threads

    I agree with the original post.

    I don't think my opinion will matter, but that's what it is.
