    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.

    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.

    So frickin jealous of what they have in Ames. It's truly amazing what Fred has done coming in with 0 coaching experience.

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

    Re: Bet a Friend $50...

    I see a similar B1G record from them (versus last year), because they aren't going to sweep Wiscy and Minny. On the flip side, they won't lose to Campbell, etc. They are improved, that much is almost guaranteed.
