I live in southern Ohio and Friday night I was out at a bar watching the Redskins preseason game.Everyone that knows me knows that I'm a big Michigan fan,so a guy at the bar bet me $50 that Michigan wont win 3 games this year! I wanted to go $100 on 5 games but he wouldnt do it. He did say that if I win that he would bet me $100 they wont win 5 games next season. Sometimes it pays living around buckeye fans! Has anyone elsemade any bets yet on the upcoming season??
A bet I made with a buckeye fan this weekend.
I always like free money. You may win this bet before Big ~10 play starts.
He should win this bet after week three!
I bet a Buckeye fan where I used to work 20 bucks that Michigan wins "The Game" this year.
...he won't pay off.
that's half a month's wages... he can't afford to lose that.
the stupidity of buckeye fans...
but I wouldn't expect to get the money from that guy. Just a gut feeling.
he might not pay up but I do know where he lives lol. Even if I dont get the money it will be great just knowing that he was dead wrong!
I bet my brother two cases of homebrew against his .22 rifle on 7.5 wins. If we go over, I get the gun, under and he gets the brew. We're both M grads, he's not so keen on RR's chances this season.
...about factoring in half a win, but whatever trips your trigger...
I got 100$ with a coworker that we win 6 or more. Spartan fans can be dumb as well. Not as nice as a bet on 3 wins.. but I still like my chances
I'll bet this was straight up, wasn't it? You shrewd devil.
so he'll win the bet
My best friend just so happens to be a buckeye fan, who very much enjoys attempting to piss me off. One weekend this summer, while pounding kool-aid we got stuck on the topic of the farm school in East Lansing and he bet me $100 that M would lose to them. So, we wrote a contract on a napkin and sealed the deal. Cant wait to get that $100.
I tried to make a bet with a friend of mine. He said he didn't gamble, but I persisted. I tried to give him 2:1 odds that I could get him gambling by the end of the trip. He didn't take it. So then I upped it to 3:1 and he bit. I can't wait. I'm going to get him gambling whether he likes it or not.
I like your Dumb and Dumber reference.
years to come is that Michigan cant recruit anymore! He said we have no Oline and that good players dont wont to go there. I said well why did we land Gardner last year and he said cause he liked Michigan. I said isnt that why EVERY kid commits to any school?? This guy is a fool!!
I have bet 4 seperate Iowa fans $15 straight up on the Iowa game. A little risky but I cant take their smugness about the upcoming season. I feel surprisingly good about this matchup and there is no way im going to give up the opportunity to rub it in their face when we win. After all the trash talk leading up to the bets, $15 seemed like a tiny price to pay for the chance to forever have predicted the downfall of Iowa's "Dream Season".
I also bet $15 on Michigan scoring over 30.5 points vs. Iowa, and $40 on Michigan getting at least 7 wins in the regular season. Maybe I talk to much trash and have to put my money where my mouth is, but when the team backs it up damn will it be satisfying.
But this Michigan State fan told me he would cut his dick of if we beat them this year. Natural Selection at its finest.
Your friend thinks that our pass defense will be so bad that we won't be able to stop an average-or-above team at all. I'm sure that's what he thinks.
Try to get his kids too. Take them out of a bad situation, bring them to the light.
...the words "at least" were included, otherwise you bet that we'd go 3-9.
That would mean that the OP suffered the indignity of being outsmarted by a buckeye.
Wow, I'm not exactly on the 12-win kool-aid-sippin' bandwagon, but 3 wins? Easy money...
doesn't look at schedules before they bet.
the odds of you NOT winning this bet, and you winning this bet and him not paying are about equal.
an easy $50 to me.....
was that Tim would outrush Eddie in The Game.
game and $50 on The Game.
I also have $50 on nine wins.
I come from a split family and every year the loser of the game would have to decorate the Christmas tree in the others colors. Example, my mom and sister (OSU) would decorate the tree in Michigan colors. This is not for money but just as bad, the weeks leading to decorating the tree suck knowing that you have to put up the other teams colors.
Thankfully i married my wife who likes Michigan and we just have a Michigan tree every year.
