    Bet a Friend $50...

    I bet a friend $50 that Iowa State will have a better record than Iowa at the end of the year. I did it purely based on the fact that Iowa plays in the Big 10. How good of a bet was this? I know nothing about Iowa Basketball this year.


    My teams: (as of 6/15/14)
    Cleveland Browns: 4-12 - .250
    Cleveland Indians: 34-35 - .493
    Cleveland Cavs: 33-49 - .402
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 3-9 - .250
    Iowa State Cyclones (BB): 28-8 - .778

    They do play in the Big 10, but I think the only Big 10 power that they play TWICE is Indiana. Maybe I'm wrong though. I think Iowa has a good season, but I have a feeling you'll be $50 richer at the end of it.

    I think it's always unwise to make a bet against something you know nothing about. With that said, I hope you win.

    You'll win.

    Both teams have a pretty weak non-con. In conference, we get TCU and TT twice.

    I think B1G basketball will be the powerhouse they are in football this year.

    I think you win by a game or so. ISU starts much more experience and the Big 10 is pretty salty, but Iowa plays a weaker non-con.

    I thought he was an idiot when he made that one thread about his professor emailing him and wanting to talk to him.
