    I'd say this year's odds are 1 in 3. Yeah, there's lots of good weights in a powerful team, but given Erickson's recent injury, Beatty's injury last year, unproven weights at 125 and 157, pile-up of talent at 141, no National Champs last year, etc., as well as developing powerhouses at Cornell, Minnesota, and Oklahoma State, I'd say 1 in 3 is about right. I don't think that any other team has any better odds, however. It's going to be a long, tough season.

    Grapplefan, tell me what you'd prefer: Having a funny, partially untrue signature for a bunch of people I'll probably never meet read. Or 10 bucks in my pocket?

    I Like my situation

    Probably give them between 1:1 to 1:2 odds, probably more like 3:5 or 2:3 to repeat. But that doesn't mean I'd bet on them.

    What the hell is 10:15 odds? Do you mean 2:3?

    I don't know how to read or figure odds and I hope I never learn but I would say that the chances that Iowa loses this years title is slim to none and slim just left Omaha.
