I don’t see why the cats can’t win the sec in two to three years with stoops and company.

Aren’t those numbers given backwards? Isn’t 100 out of one the same as 100% ?
Shouldn’t it be 1/100, which is to say one try out of one hundred attempts we would win it, or .001 percent chance? Maybe I’m taking this thing way too seriously.

Betting odds are not the same thing as percent chance. If they were, all the odds would add up to 1 which isn’t the case at all. Betting odds just means that you get X dollars for every Y dollars spent. So UK being 100 to 1 means that on a $1 bet, you would win $100.

If they listed UK’s percent chance of actually winning the SEC, it would be FAR less than 1%. Also, 1% in decimal form is .01 not .001. .001 is one thousandth. That would be .1%.

Hey! We’re back in front of Vandy! Equilibrium has been restored!

“Why Not”.

Where do I place my bet.? I like those odds.

They also gave us 75/1 odds to win the SECe. I say let’s do it.

yes! so there is a chance we can win it!

You don’t gamble much do you?

“So you’re saying there’s a chance?”

Wonder what he odds are we will win enough to give Stoops another million dollar raise?
