    So sorry to hear that. Major bummer. I’ve heard other unfortunate tales. Worst was a 2-time alum, emeritus faculty member, Athletic Dept. Hall of Famer, and 40+ year season ticket holder LOST THEIR LONGTIME SEATS!! 4 seats. Criminal in my view. Lost to deeper pockets. I’m still sore about it.

    Criminal? It’s actually an open market where anyone can participate and choose any seat they like. I don’t envy the creators of the rules of this said game, but you either play or you lose. Much like every other aspect of your life.

    It's +2.5 on DK. I'd buy it up to +3 and take Seattle.

    Also, while I get the disappointment in not being able to keep one's seats, I can't remember how many comments/threads have talked about the fact that Butler doesn't spend money for practice facilities, coaches, etc. We cannot have it both ways. The money has to come from somewhere. That somewhere is donors, either a little or a lot at a time.

    Exactly what I am wanting to do but my board is not allowing that hook to be bought out right now. Which is annoying. Saying that it seems money is coming in on the rams a little for what I can get that +2.5 for so maybe a few more bets come in and it pushes it to 3.

    Many people I read like Coastal Carolina tonight...but laying 19 on the road on a Thursday? That's a risky play.

    Also the GA and Bama lines have shifted down since they opened. No idea why but I'd jump on both if you can get them around 15 and 17. Large lines in the sec often intimidate me...but those two are just so far ahead of the other teams in conference.

    Any thoughts on Houston/Tulane? I’m leaning towards Houston giving 6.5

    Anyone recommend a realtor that KNOWS Carmel? We currently live on the westside and are prequalified with contingency. Only looking in Carmel and will not be talked into anything that isn't perfect.

    Butler alum year before me (2000) and fellow Phi Delt. Does a great job and has been for almost 20 years up there.

    I think Tulane spent all of their bullets at Oklahoma and Ole Miss. They haven't looked good and Houston is kinda rolling. Not sure if I'll bet that one but if I do I'm laying Houston.

    Not sure how the ESG guys at the entrances to the parking lot would know who that person is? They just look to see if you have a pass or not. Did this alum not realize you needed to purchase a pass?

    If the program had $1 for every comment on this board demanding bigger & better facilities, higher pay for coaches, bigger recruiting budget, better drinks & food in EFG, etc...we could have had it all by now.

    As someone said above, I cannot imagine having to develop this system so that everyone thinks it is perfectly fair every time. I imagine like most things in life, it is perfectly fair when things run in your favor, but when it doesn't the system sucks.

    I suppose I was. Wilson going down didn't do me any favors. But, I hit on Houston so, it's a wash (the seattle line was even money).

    No idea what to do much tomorrow. Other than Bama...maybe Michigan. Iowa-Penn St should be intriguing but watching Penn St this year their advantage over Iowa is their speed...and speed usually wins the day. I may go light on them.

    I also think Ole Miss-Arky's over is way too high (67).

    Yep great news. We're down (according to NYT stats) 49% here in GA over the last couple weeks. Maybe we can celebrate Christmas and Hanukah after all (sarcasm I hope y'all get).

    I'm looking forward to being in a capacity filled Hinkle at some point this season. For now, it's oyster time. $1 a pop til 7.

    Nah, I couldn’t care less. But it’s the biggest sports story of the last 5 days and will be for the next few.

    Gruden is an asshole. We know this. Didn’t realize it extended this far, but… *shrugs*

    No one got hurt or died or anything. Just coming to light what people know.

    Anyway the Colts are boat racing their original city. Jacksonville and Houston Are terrible, so this team still has a shot at the playoffs.
