He's the one who offered and laid out his terms.  Who's the one who doesn't want to make the bet?

Wadesworld.  He didn't lay out his terms - no specified bet amount.  Further, if I were to lose, he can take the money I send him and donate it to his charity of choice.  I'll even send him a stamp to mail off the payment to the charity of his choice if he can't make the payment online.

As I said, I want enjoy some fine food and drink on Wades dime should I win the bet.  Reality is, is that Wades made his offer before Kolek drilled his 3 second half 3's against MS State - and I'd made the statement that Kolek would shoot 35-40% for the year before his 3 of 3 second half performance.

One of the final reasons MU struggled was as Miss St was closing out MU would take their eyes off the basket while shooting to look at the player coming at them especially OMax.

Additionally, I think the way we closed out hurt us big time. We tried to block every jump shot, bit on every head fake, flew past guys, got out of position, got crushed on the boards and second chance points. As they say, keep the guy in front of you.

I’ll do it for $1,000 to the winner’s choice of charity. And if I win I’ll match your $1,000 to my charity.

No interest in a bet that doesn’t go to a good cause.

I'm sure Ners would be happy to take a donation to The Human Fund.

Looking at this team, I don't think the shooting issues are as terrible as it seems.

This team generates good looks and a lot of it comes down to taking good shots.  For example, Stevie is a 40% 3 point shooter, Kolek is a 40% 3 point shooter, OMax is a 33% 3 point shooter, Kam is a 29% 3 point shooter. I think we can all agree we'd all be more comfortable with Kam taking 3's than any of those guys, but they all are shooting better %'s because they just simply take the right shots.

I think scoring can be an issue at times, but if these guys take the right shots and hit the open ones, it'll open up a lot of lanes to the basket.  This team can attack with the best of 'em.
VIOLENCE!

Kam minus the 27+ footers is 35%. Marquette would be at 33.6% as a team. Middle of the pack.

So not going to take the bet even though I’d be out a grand no matter the result. Guess I’m not the one who doesn’t want the bet. Won’t put your money where your mouth is. Sad.
