Marvelous.

owlfan can't be blamed for the fact that z8 is a blight.

Muddy, way to neglect to post the rest of the quote within the parenthesis'. I explain that this would have been my original prediction anyway, and admit to being a little off on the score when I make my pick. But sure, twist my words because that's what you do all of the time, Muddy.

In the history of this board, nobody has insisted upon posting about himself like z8 has.

Bahhhhahahahahahahah!

Just stop, man.

First, no one cares. Second, are you really going to try to claim credit for a prediction you made after a game is over?

Also, did it count as a "win" for z8 when you predicted Duquesne would lose by 40 but they fought Georgetown until the end before losing by 8-10?

Yes, Twisted, I understand. The point is a "win" for z8 should not be only about the team he picks. His prediction was off by 30 points. If he was putting money on his prediction in Vegas, he would not have won.

1st, people do care. You just showed yourself that YOU, in fact, care about my predictions by posting about it after you said "no one cares." If no one does care, then just leave it at that, no need to continue posting after that. It just proves you to be a hypocrite.

2nd, yes I will claim credit for that prediction. I had originally seen that game on the schedule and thought, hmm I think Colorado will win by 15. I did not have access to the website prior to the game, which is understandable, considering that it was played early enough that it was during my lunch break. I admitted I was off on the point differential, but Colorado still won, so I'll take credit for the win.

And yes, the Georgetown win did in fact count as a win, regardless of my miscalculation of the score. It's all about the pick, either a win or a loss. The score differential is just to add more substance and intrigue to the posts, as simply win or loss predictions would get a little tiresome and annoying to the audience.

I hope this cleared things up.

Re: 11/15 A-10 Games

I think the Bonnies are going to win the A-10 tournament last year.

Bona Wolf's record to date: 1-0

Thank you for the >>. I noticed my enhanced intrigue in your post and savored the additional substance the >> provided. Without it, your post would have just been another prediction post and in time would grow tiresome and maybe annoy me. So thank you for going the extra keystrokes for my benefit. Also, I'm glad you cleared it up as I couldn't put my finger on quite the reason why I was more intrigued or savoring your post more than normal.

Cordially,

Mateer

Re: 11/15 A-10 Games

Dukes ended up losing by 6. zh8's margin of error was very small, a mere 34 points.

Re: 11/15 A-10 Games

I have no power over what people post on my thread. (Which even if I did, I don't think people on here enjoy modifying anyway haha)

Re: 11/15 A-10 Games

I wonder if that would work at the Hilton?

"Hi, I'm here to collect my winnings on the X game."
"No sir, you lost; nothing to collect."
"But, but, but...the Mighty Xavier Musketeers won the game!"
"Sure they did. But your Mighty Xavier Musketeers sucked against the spread."
"What?"
"The spread sir. See those funny little >> things?"
"Yep."
"Well...each one of those represent 5 pts. Your team had to win by more than 10 to cover the spread."
"So...you're telling me that my team won and I lost my money?"
"Yep."
"Well...that really sucks. Just when I was having fun. I think your way is tiring and annoying."
