    CyBookie Changes

    Trying to get everyone's opinion on if things should be changed, and if so, what kind of changes are most popular. Bear with me while I create the poll.

    It is being discussed. We have some ideas just checking to see if the ability is there.

    stupid womens basketball games and 19.5... .5!!!! who came up with that...

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    OK I posted some options. I don't know how to edit or add options for the poll, so MODS feel free to modify the poll if you wish.

    Oklahoma screwed me over... they aren't content with costing our team a victory they have to go and make me lose credits too


    I was also banking on a Hillary or Edwards upset, though that was probally a little foolish on my part (but the payout would have been huge!)

    Also made the mistake betting on the wrong side of a halftime line for Kansas... ;no:


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    No personal bets, thats how "a friend of a friend" or "I know people" started in real life...

    Re: CyBookie Changes

    What about a possible thing where if you make such a donation you get so many credits and so forth.

    Say you donate 5 dollars or soemthing to CF, then you get 25k credits to bet and so forth. This would make it more reasonable to purchase actual things with your credits downt he road. This would possibly even encourage people to donate more money to CF...I've been looking at the possibility adn thios would be a great idea I believe.
