IMO, he didn't ask the same of you... he asked you to bet on two teams playing each other and picking the winner. You're asking him to bet on the fact that UT wins out the rest of their season (which they should), and the fact the voters keep UT in second place,... and then last but not least that IF they even get to the big game, they win it. That's a huge difference in scenarios. Like a lot of people have been skeptical of, voters and columnists/commentators are talking about VT being so close to UT and could possibly overtake UT even while UT retains a perfect season. I don't know if that will happen, but in the sports world, anything is possible... so your bet is a lot easier one to decide if you want to take or not.
