Can we change this to a slap bet? Cause I would pay $1000 to charity to see that.

Start over.  Make the bet Kolek 35% from three or above for $1000 or any amount you both find acceptable.  No strings attached.

Or don’t bet and let it go.

And then people can stop calling people cowards.

Wait.  So now you've moved the bet to 40% from 3.  Shocker.  Thanks for outing the reality that you don't want to make the bet at 35% which you'd initially offered - jumping on my post projecting Kolek to shoot 35-40% at the time he was shooting 26% from 3 (prior to Kolek knocking down the second half 3's against MS State.)  Using the charity loophole is quite convenient.

Talk about pretzels.  Are you intentionally being dumb or what?  The bet is 35%.  Always has been.  Always has been the winner donates to charity.  It's TOTALLY FINE if you don't want to take that bet, but that's the bet I'm offering!

First you claim I didn't want to make the bet because Kolek got hot and is up to 40% from 3, even though I'd be losing my $1K no matter what the result of the bet is.  Now you're claiming I'm changing the bet to 40% from 3, which has never been stated.

The bet is money to a charity of the winner's choosing (and I'll match your money if I win!) if Kolek shoots above 35% from 3.  That's been the bet the entire time!  Whether it was made when Kolek was shooting 26% or 40%.  Doesn't matter to me!

Quit talking about weasling out of a bet.  I've been consistent the entire time.  You're the one who won't make the bet.  Which is totally fine!  But quit talking about me having no interest in actually making the bet.  It's been up to you to say yes the entire time.  You refuse to.  Which, for the third time, is fine!  Doesn't even make you a coward!  What does is continually claiming someone else doesn't want to make the bet, when the bet has been the same the entire way and you don't want to take it.

I'll be done there.  I've taken up enough of this board's space.  You can say yes or no.  Or you can continue to wiggle your way around having to actually say no.  But I'll give you until the ball tips against Baylor to say yes.  If so, great!  If not, I'm done talking about it.

I think some leagues and teams are seeing a hangover from the extra COVID year and free transfer rule. Cohesion and experience issues.

Look at MU who didn't dig deep this year.  #304 on experience but #96 in minutes continuity. Providence is #103 on experience but #284 on minutes continuity, as a contrast.  Maybe Shaka's onto something?

I think the ACC will have the same number of tournament bids that they do teams that finish outside the top 100.

Notre Dame is set to get back Marcus Hammond from a knee injury.

The Senior averaged nearly 18.1 ppg last season for Niagra.

The Irish will get him back just in time to face Marquette.

I know Calvin Murphy lit it up at Niagara but I'm not worried about this dude.

After a decade of Collins, it’s probably time to move on.

Yeah, Northwestern was a 9.5-point favorite at home and managed to both lose by 8,000 points and make Elliott look like Steph Curry.

I know Calvin Murphy lit it up at Niagara but I'm not worried about this dude. 

My brother played against Calvin Murphy in high school. Suprise: It didn't go well for my brother or his team.

It's probably 85/15 Marquette. Maybe more, but they definitely make their presence felt, and it seems like there's a few red shirts in every section.

Listened to the Scrambled Eggs Pod this morning and they said it'll be a 50/50 split.

Should be interesting to see how this young team handles the "rivalry".  The players treat it as one because the crowds do, but really with basically no one on our roster being from Wisconsin I'm sure most of them look at it as just another game.

Hopefully the home crowd is large.
