@FTRSLilBroey fair article. Quoted accurately. I'd dispute the fact that a mere two game diff. of opinion in GT wins (6vs8) makes me a moron— Marc Ryan (@MarcRyanOnAir) July 1, 2013
@MarcRyanOnAir 2 games are the difference between a bowl team and a non-bowl team, and between stagnation and improvement.— Joey Weaver (@FTRSLilBroey) July 1, 2013
@FTRSLilBroey ahh yes.I see your point..only one win vs. FCS counts toward bowl eligibility. 7=possible-gist of topic was supporting option— Marc Ryan (@MarcRyanOnAir) July 1, 2013

Things went from there. I called in and spoke with Marc (filling in for Carl Dukes alongside Kordell Stewart and Rachel Baribeau), telling him about why I feel like he was so wrong in his original comments and discussing the team with the crew. The call ended in Marc and I making a bet on the fortunes of the Georgia Tech and Florida football teams this fall. The bet is as follows...
If Georgia Tech's win total, plus 2.5, is greater than that of Florida at the end of the regular season, I win. If Georgia Tech's win total, plus 2.5, is less than that of Florida at the end of the regular season, Marc wins. For example, if Tech goes 9-3 and Florida goes 11-1, I win. If Tech goes 8-4 and Florida goes 11-1, Marc wins.
I've started this Storystream now to track this bet on a weekly basis. I'll also provide the actual stakes once they've been decided upon.
Smart bet, Tech fans? Stupid bet? Chime in.
