    Default Would you take this bet?

    I made a bet with my friend's dad yesterday.
    My 100 dollars against his 500.

    USC ends the season out of the top 3 in rankings.

    Would you have taken it?

    Might have taken it just for the odds but I think you'll lose.

    That's exactly how I was thinking, and why I took it.

    5 to 1 makes it a pretty fair bet, but still one I wouldn't have taken

    USC is the best in the country, and doesn't have a tough enough schedule (ala SEC) to be a likely 2 loss team.

    Doubtful they run the table, but if they lose only one game, they still finish most likely #1.

    Even 2 losses isn't a guarantee for you.

    Risky bet! But thats why you are getting the 5 to 1, right?

    Can I make that bet with you also. I don't mind if you pay me now or wait till the end of the season but you will be paying.

    For some reason, I disagree.

    I'm not saying USC isn't a good team. I wouldn't even say that they haven't had the best college football team of all time in past years. They really are that good.
    But I keep seeing the SEC becoming the media darlings now. I keep seeing a lot of push for LSU and Florida. I get the feeling that people are kind of looking for an excuse to keep the Trojans out.

    I made the bet because I don't feel that Booty is a good quarterback. He isn't 25% of what Carson Palmer was, and not even half of what Leinart was, just in my opinion.

    I really bet on Booty having another UCLA circa 2006 meltdown against an unranked Pac-10 team. I figured that loss against (Washington State, Oregon, or Oregon State) would be enough to keep them out, especially with a lot of people pushing for other programs it looked like from the pre-season hype.

    I don't think any team is better than USC. I just don't think they have the poise to prevent from defeating themselves anymore.

    I also don't feel bad considering the four figure winnings I raked in from the '05 Rose Bowl. =]

    Yeah, you haven't won yet, unless I read that wrong, but kudos to you for seeing this way in advance.

    Last week was the warning, this week was the shock. After these last two games, if they keep playing this way, they'll be lucky to be in the top three of the Pac-10. Absolutely horrible play. Penalties, turnovers, poor play calling... good grief.

    And yes I'm still a fan, just a pissed fan.
