Guess the Score, Win Stuff: Illinois
Welcome bloggers to the newest regular MGoFeature, and the only one that gives you free stuff. Usually it'll be something from the MGoStore; occasionally someone will donate or sponsor a different item. It works like thusly:
- Wednesday mornings I put up a winnable prize that consists of a desirable good.
- You guess the final scores of this weekend's designated game (football or hoops, depending on the season), 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.
This Week's Game:
Illinois Fighting Illini of Illinois (We're from Illinois!) vs. the Michigan Wolverines, in a contest of footballs.
This Week's Prize:
The latest in wearable technology from MGoBlog, this shirt may cause a sudden Aneurysm of Leadership. Your friends will remark upon your incredible grit, and late-game three point shooting ability. Options are Six Threes at Breslin Maize, or Big Ten Title Blue.
Notes: If you win and prefer another shirt, that's cool; pick an MGoShirt.
Yes I feel a tiny bit bad about THE_KNOWLEDGE except 1.) I figure you like free stuff more than being a "top friend"; 2.) We've had this in the works for a very long time; and 3.) Being from the future he was well aware of this.
Rules: One entry per user. First user to choose a set of scores wins, determined by the timestamp of your entry (for my ease I prefer if you don't post it as a reply to another person's score--if you do it won't help or hurt you). If nobody gets the score, this week's prize carries over to the following week's. Deadline for entries is 24 hours before the start of the game (since I won't have time to pull them on gamedays). MGoEmployees and Moderators--anyone else with moderator priveleges--are exempt from winning (because you could change your timestamp). If you choose the score that Brian published in the official preview and it actually ends up the final score, well, that would be pretty amazing because Brian picks scores like 29-11 all the time.
36-13 Michigan Wins
Two Gibbons field goals and seven touchdowns, 3 Denard rushing touchdowns and 2 passing. Fitz finally gets on the board with 100 yards and a TD. Rawls gets another TD in garbage time. GO Blue!
34-3 Michigan with the W. Illinois field goal in scrub time.
48 - 0 Michigan
41-12 Good guys win
35 - 24, Michigan
Disappointing but a W, which is totally fine. Borges and Mattison slow play it, saving the best for State. Denard throws a pick-6. Illinois picks up another touchdown in 4th quarter, garbage time.
just to be different
21 - 10 Michigan
