    Over / Under…. Thoughts?
    Number = 8
    Games T. Poole rushes for 100 yds OR
    Games Bray passes for 300 yds

    Number = 5
    Janzen Jackson’s season INTs OR
    Palardy’s touchback total

    Number = 4
    The number of times a half a hundred is scored on….
    Us OR
    Them

    Number = 1 (who has best shot to be number 1 in Big Ten)
    Wisconsin OR
    Nebraska

    Counting a bowl game or no?

    Regular season I'll take the under on Poole and Bray, the over on JJ's interceptions, the over on Palardy touchbacks, the under on both 50 point totals and Nebraska.

    Agree with groves on everything but Wisconsin/Nebraska. Still thinking about that one.

    Does this mean the number of games at least one of the two things happen? If so, I'll take the over.

    I'll go with Nebraska

    Not sure of the format, but I'll give it a shot.

    Under, for both, although I don't think by much.

    Over for both.

    Under. We will go 50+ 3 times. They will not go 50+


    Nebraska

    I'm worried that Arkansas may get close to 50.... a late season game with a thin D. Although, we don't know what two months of football will do to their Offense either.

    Other items, I'm taking Poole, Jackson, and Wisconsin

    No Davis and Tyler Wilson is still unproven.

    I'm at under on all the player stat metrics, besides touchbacks. Under on both the scoring totals and don't know enough yet to pick between Wiscy and NE.

    I think that you meant which one of the two options is more likely to have the over/under set at the provided number. In other words, which is more likely - for the over/under to be 7.5 or 8.5 for Bray 300 yd games or Poole 100 yd games.

    So, in that spirit, I'll take:

    Poole. Bray threw for a high percentage of 300 yd games last year, but against the back half of the schedule. Getting to 8 would be tough. Poole, if he cam get the carries, could get to 8 with a bowl.

    Jackson. But, this one is tough. I don't know if Palardy will be able to get them deep enough. His over/under should be 12-15 but could be set at 1.5 for all I know. 5 is probably a bit high for Janzen depending onhow he is used.

    I think the number is too high for both, but probably more fitting for times we do it (3) vs times it's done to us (2).

    The last can't really be construed as an over/under, so I'll just take Nebraska.


    Anyone else have some good "who has a bettershot at" questions

    Here's one: what is more likely - D Rogers has 1000 yards receiving or Lane gets 8 TDs.

    Yeah, I could have worded that much better and the Big Ten was more of a pot luck.

    I'll take D. Rogers with 1000 yards receiving

    I'll, uh, take the under on Janzen's interceptions.

    Good going, Karl...you jinxed him. We should try this thread again without the over/under and with a "Who's more likely..." haha
