    15 Wins combined in BB and Football bet?

    I made a $10 bet (high roller) before the start of the football season with a Hawk fan that the Clones would win 15 total games in BB and football. This was right after Mike Taylor got the boot. I was expecting 4 wins in football and it should be easy to get 11 in BB. We came up one short of my football goal. Then Lucca's situation and Wesly being injured got me worried. Now that Wesly is back, I feel much better. I think we have 3 more non-conference games which could put us a 10 wins, I believe. I feel we should surely win 2 conference games.

    What are anyones thoughts on conference victories? Am I safe with my money or do I need to get a shovel and get to the neighbors drive?

    I think 2 conf. wins is the worst case scenario. I see us between 2 and 8 wins....really hard to predict.

    Start asking for your money.
    You're gonna win this bet.

    I see us winning 13 or 14 basketball games so you should be fine. It will be close, though. I don't see many conference wins out there for us, but if Diante and BP can keep improving who knows.

    I would have made that bet 1000 dollars. Of course, we probably would have gone 0-fer in both sports then.

    good bet. I am thinking around 5-7 conf. wins.

    Did he specify Mens Basketball? If he didn't then I think you have already won with the ladies record.

    Not sure there is a thing as a smart Hawk fan, but he wasn't dumb enough to bet anymore money.

    Unfortuantely we aren't talking about women's BB.

    I was just curious where people thought the conference wins would come from. I feel confident in the bet, but I just don't see alot of conference wins.

    Has this been the worst year for games televised on channel 5? I am blaming Pollard, trying to get people in the seats. Just Kidding.

    You blame Pollard, and I'll blame McCarney, then all we need is someone to blame Morgan.

    You should have done a parlay with the Hawks combined records. Before the seasons started, you may have talked him into 30 wins or more.


    Yeah well, ya know, that's just, like uh, your opinion, man.

    The same night I did make a bet that the Hawks wouldn't win 10 games in football. Haven't seen that money yet.
