    ALL IN for ISU

    20,000,000 on ISU to win courtesy of the betting board. I figured after 6 years here, I should probably risk some of my credits instead of just sitting on them. It's not like I sweated earning them.

    Plus, the 4.5 points were a big factor for me. I've got this feeling that win or lose, we'll be in a position to make it happen in the last minute or so of regulation.

    That is NOT ALL IN. You have 51 million left to bet to be ALL IN.

    And I can't really be expected to be "ALL IN" with the other 51M, right? I've got to save some so I can be "ALL IN" for the Baylor game AND the first game of the Big 12 tourney.

    I was in Vegas a few weeks ago and put $40 on the Cyclones to win the national title. At 200-1 odds it will be the easiest $8000 ever.

    Re: ALL IN for ISU

    So by ALL IN you mean you went about 28% in?

    Re: ALL IN for ISU

    I am all in too, but I bet K-State to cover. I bet 73m credits I think as I've never bet either. Hopefully I'm penniless after today.

    The real tragedy for me will be if K-State wins, but doesn't cover.

    If I was betting "real" money, I'd want at least 12.5 to be comfortable.
