    Odds to win the Big Dance

    I have been drinking the Kool Aid, and had to put down a small wager at 300 to 1. Dang I hope it happens now, for multiple reasons, as I thought that was pretty good value. GO CLONES let me replace my truck w/260,000 miles!

    Re: Odds to win the Big Dance

    I like the way this guy thinks. But unfortunately don't hold your breath... There will be a lot better teams than A&M in the tourney... Not saying its an impossibility but the road will be very difficult...

    Stay thirsty my friend..

    Re: Odds to win the Big Dance

    I honestly think it could happen. If they shoot well and stay out of foul trouble, they will be a difficult team to beat on a neutral floor. It just depends on how upset prone teams are going to be this year.

    Too much kool-aid. Add a zero 3000:1 and you mihgt be in the ballpark. ISU hasn't even been in the final 4 since the 40's. They're in the final 4 of the big xii right now and won't win that. How can you give 300:1 odds?


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    Re: Odds to win the Big Dance

    That's great! Whatever you spent on that bet, even if you lose you get a good story out of the expense.

    And I'm also thinking that by placing a wager on ISU's chances at winning the NCAA tournament title, you now have standing to sue the NCAA if we are wrongly overlooked on Selection Sunday. **

    Re: Odds to win the Big Dance

    I was in Vegas once and bet on Green Bay to win the Super Bowl a few years ago. The odds were really bad for Green Bay since Rogers was out with a concusion and the season was not going great yet. Ended up winning 200 bucks. Can't remember how much I put down but it was pure luck

    300:1 isn't steep enough for me to wager on ISU.

    Oh come on now. Nobody ever drinks while gambling. That is why they don't allow alcohol in the LV casinos.
