A few folks have asked about the pre-season 2012 Little 500 odds as generated (seemingly randomly) in the previous years (2009, 2010). Now these thoughts aren’t exactly based on knowledge for obvious reasons but are more to start the debate from people who might actually know! Have at it....
Womens Little 500- April 20th 2012
2/1 Teter- Three time champs know how to win and replace CvK with Hutch, which is as good as it could get.
5/1 Delta Gamma- Doogs and Phillips with plenty talent in waiting looking to put such a strong show in 2010 into a big result
5/1 Kappa Alpha Theta- Surprisingly poor result in 2011 doesn’t reflect their talent and dedication. Look for them to bounce back strong.
6/1 Wing-it- The facilities and expertise leading the team have got to get this talented group on the podium soon, right?
10/1 Kappa Kappa Gamma. Always there….
15/1 Delta Zeta- Big surprise from last year surely on the uptick.
16/1 Army Cycling- Otteweiler returns as one of the strongest riders on track but losing 3 strong seniors will be tough to replace.
18/1 Kappa Delta- Coach Norm knows how to organize a house that embraces the race so will be around the top ten.
25/1 The Field- No clue but don’t see anyone else making the top 5.
Mens Little 500- April 21st 2012
3/1 Cutters- 5 time consecutive champs but only 2 returning rings…unless ‘Patches’ jumps back in…. The team to beat as ever.
7/2 Phi Delta Theta- Four returning riders, have been very aggressive in the past two years. Steve Sharp will battle RJ Stuart to be BMOtrack. 1st or 33rd is the mantra and they need a win!
5/1 Delta Tau Delta- Will miss James Coudright but RJ Stuart was amongst the strongest in 2011 and the team will surely continue to be aggressive.
5/1 Sigma Chi- Fish and Morrow are back and may just win it!
6/1 Beta Theta Pi- Bad race in 2011 but should bounce back with a strong squad of dudes.
10/1 Black Key Bulls. Rex Raffety in the house and on the track!
12/1 Hoosier Climber?- I’m assuming they will continue to improve
12/1 CRU cycling- Not sure what happened in the 2011 race but they seemed to have a good organization and some talent
15/1 Acacia- A nice renaissance in 2011 will hopefully enthuse the house to get the program back on track
15/1 Delta Chi- On the upward track…may be the surprise team in 2012
15/1 Sigma Nu- Fratstars amazingly took the pole in 2011 and talked a good game. Can they back it up in 2012?
20/1 The Field- That’s all I got…anyone else out there to challenge?
