Agreed, but would you rather lose more money?

If I'm remembering correctly, the difference in the odds is like 0.01% or something like that.  I'll take my chances.

Actually "Don't Pass line" plus the others gives you best odds.

Being the optimist that I am, I hate playing the Don'ts. And as SAW says, the difference is negligible.

Actually, looking around a little bit, I think it's 0.05% better odds to play the Don'ts -- 5 cents per $100 wagered.

He's eligible to be. I don't believe he has announced a transfer yet (like Chris Clarke, who is leaving Va Tech as a grad transfer).

I'm not so sure about that. When Buzz left, he took Hill & Pierce, but didn't pursue any Marquette players as transfers, even though between Taylor, Cohen, Burton, & Wilson, we had a number that ended up being productive elsewhere.

Eric Williams Jr., Duquesne's most talented player, announced his transfer yesterday.  6-6 wing player who averaged 14 pts, 8 boards both his freshman and sophomore years.  I've seen him play a few times - incredibly athletic, but can play a little out of control at times.  He's from the Detroit area, so there's a good chance he knows our Detroit triumvirate. 

Supposedly he already has a visit set up with Mizzou.

If only we had hired Cuonzo instead of Wojo ...

... we could have been the ones dumped by Cuonzo after 3 mediocre years.

He'll be 24 at the start of the season.  Could be Markus's dad...

He'll definitely be a hot commodity, and unless Markus leaves, I don't think he'd even consider us.   Makes you wonder who Buzz already has coming in to take his place?

Actually, looking around a little bit, I think it's 0.05% better odds to play the Don'ts -- 5 cents per $100 wagered.

When betting the light side - unless you're playing one Pass bet at a time (boring) - you'll always have chips on the table after a win... sure, you can pull back your place and odds bets when you hit your point, but nobody ever does it, which virtually guarantees that every player betting the light side won't walk away until the board 7's-out.

Conversely, the primary advantage to the dark side is that on a 7-out, no action remains, which makes it extremely convenient to walk away from the table on a win. 

The last bet may not seem like it matters after you've been at the table all night, but considering that players have a tendency to wager more at the end of a session, whether they're winning or losing, this really messes up the player models that calculate the "natural odds" of a game (given a certain set of rules). Natural odds are calculated based on the assumption that everything is random, including when the player walks away from the table, but the natural odds are often not the "true odds" at a craps table, because not only is the final bet often more than the average wager, but playing the light side means that said final bet will always be a loss.  So the "true odds" of playing the dark side are actually much better than 0.5%... depending on how much and how long you play, it could be more than 5% if you live by the 20x bankroll rule of thumb.

The casinos know this... which is why they help perpetuate the negative stigma of the dark side.  Getting dirty looks from other players is one thing, but nothing brings out the stick's passive-aggression like someone playing the dark side at a full table.
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

Taylor was going to transfer if Buzz stayed so scratch him.....don't think any of those guys were interested in playing for Buzz again(Duane maybe not sure) and Cohen obviously never played for him.

Don't think the fact that they were at MU would have prevented Buzz from pursuing them if he wanted them.

He didn't exactly have the warm and fuzzies for MU when he left......and the feeling was obviously mutual among many he left behind.

I enjoy playing the dark side.  The only problem is often you have to do it in silence.  So it takes away from the table dynamic where everyone is having a good time on a long and successful roll.

So glad I'm risk averse.  That town could eat you alive if you actually enjoy gambling.  I do so little that it doesn't matter.
