Guess the Score, Win Stuff: The Brah-Down at Breslin
Hey little man.
Hey big guy.
Hey there pal.
Hey there buckaroo.
Hey pork chop.
How about a little 5-on-5, you pick the time and place. At Breslin huh? Next Tuesday? 9 o'clock? Let me check the calendar…
Feb 8, 7:35 p.m.: Kick Notre Dame's ass in hockey
Feb 9, 11:00 a.m.: Kick Wisconsin's ass in basketball
Feb 9, 7:00 p.m.: Kick Notre Dame's ass in hockey again.
Feb 9, 9:00 p.m.: Collect massive windfall of 2014 football commits, because THIS IS MICHIGAN™
Nope I'm free. See you there.
How it works:
- I put up a winnable prize that consists of a desirable good.
- You guess the final scores of the designated game, and put it in the comments. First person to post a particular score has it.
- If you got it right, we contact you. If not, go to (5)
- The desirable good arrives at the address you give us.
- Non-winners can acquire the same desirable good by trading currency for it.
- Seriously, you don't have to actually guess a basketball score to get this shirt. You can buy it.
About Last Time:
This Week's Game:
Michigan @ Michigan State next Tuesday, Feb 12, at Breslin. Normally I'll plug the weekend game to give people enough time to sign up, but fortunately I like all of you too much to make you guess the score of anything involving Wisconsin. You can thank me by posting your score in the format of [M's Score]-[Opponent's Score].
And the Prize:
High Fashion is about making a statement that demonstrates the breadth of your personality and intellectual qualities. To that end, we submit to you the "Beat State" cotton upper body apparel unit.
The word from Paris and Milan this year is that America is in, and there is no sentiment more uniquely American than the expression of one's desire to defeat their collegiate rivals from a nondescript Morrill Act university, such schools often colloquially designated in the local vernacular as simply "State."
Add this shirt to your ensemble and exude the subtle wit of patriotism for these states united as expressed in the declaration of your base intentions to humiliate the members of your own commonweal to whom both land and your old clothing were granted.
State comes to Crisler the weekend of March 2-3; order it soon so we can get it to you on time.
Last loss of the season.
Technically, it's not accurate to call MSU a Morril Act university since they predate the 1862 law and actually served as the model for future land grant universities. Consider all your nits to have been picked.
Mich - 63
State - 67
82-63. Izzo's turns red and wets himself.
101 - 72 Michigan spanks MSU (Most likely due to 40 pts off turnovers)
Michigan over Lansing Agricultural
78-69 M TAKES IT
go away, MSU.
Michigan 72- State 66
59 - 50 Michigan - again.
and then we win out.
Michigan 62, Red Cedars 55
76-70 Michigan wins!
UM 74 - MSU 67
80-79 Michigan wins
Maize and blue beats green and gold, bronze, white, or whatever colors they plan on wearing.
79-72 Michigan wins
Michigan wins 66-61
Why were several posts, including mine, labeled as overrated? Seems rather arbitrary when the overwhelming number of posts were simply predicting the score, again including mine.
Michigan 69 MSU 62, Izzo freaks out on the refs after Appling picks up his 3rd foul and almost has a heart attack
71 - 65 Sparty.
