Speaking of this, since it is no longer the BCS National Title, does the trophy change at all? Look different?

They are giving Florida, A&M and Clemson just as much chance as us?! Who came up with this?

I'd put $500 on the Gamecocks if I had a bookie. I've never gambled on sports before.

Las Vegas bookmakers. That's a good line for us Gamecock fans.

I don't think FSU will get back next year, they looked beatable to me and even if they roll thru the ACC, they will have to play a play-off game against a top 4 team.

I also don't think Auburn will make it back, both of those teams will have a bullseye on their back. Bama is always a threat. But remember, it's a new ballgame next year.

I think we are about right. They have us tied with the eight best chance of winning it all.

I use a couple sites over here. Bet365 is my favorite and I have never had a problem. You just deposit with your card details and withdraw your winnings back into your account. If it's a reputable site, they will pay. Keep a record of the transaction.

You might want to test the waters with small bets before you thrown down $500. Get to know how the site works first.

Thanks. I may look into it next year. I wish I would have put money on Auburn last night.

Those are terrible odds. Especially for the 25-1 teams. I'm sure if you looked around in early August you could find much, much better odds.

Read where some dude put $100 on Auburn before the season started and he just missed out on $50,000.

I meant the game, not the season. I think the spread was 13 and they only lost by 4.

Last year at this time, I was getting 33/1 on us to win it all. I bet about 5 a week for all of the off-season until I was at 100. Thanks to Tenn I didn't win the 3300.00

Last night I put 20 on Auburn to cover the spread, They were getting +10.5 points. I woke up with 40.

Oh, the guy bet $100 in Vegas and the line this time last year was 500/1 for Auburn to win. Unbelievable they came so close.

I have no problem with our line, but new ball game or not some of those teams don't deserve those high of odds.

He was cool with it. He admitted he made the bet in Vegas with house money. A lot of people tried to talk him into hedging his bet so he would win either way, he stuck to his original bet. He came damn close.
