Guess the Score, Win Stuff: Connaître Cuit

Try as he might, Dave Brandon couldn't get the Huskies to acknowledge their football team is utterly irrelevant except for its proximity to New York.

How this works again:

  1. I put up a winnable prize that consists of a desirable good.
  2. You guess the final scores of this weekend's designated game (football or hoops, depending on the season), and put it in the comments like so:
    [Michigan Score]-[Opponent Score]. First person to post a particular score has it.
  3. If you got it right, we contact you. If not, go to (5)
  4. The desirable good arrives at the address you give us.
  5. Non-winners can acquire the same desirable good by trading currency for it.

Last Week's Game:

Really, you want to talk about this? No, nobody won this. SAvoodoo said 101-0 (and Gallon scores them all) but was clearly joking; not so much 84-0 BlueReign and 98-3 Hail-Storm.

This Week:

You, Khan vs. any hope that events which occur follow the events that preceded them, with the hopeful exception of any event from last Saturday.

And the Prize:


Sorry, Brian, but we couldn't get the rights toPanic, while for the other the photographer was only too happy to oblige.

If you can read this you don’t need glasses:

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 unless we beat Akron 28-24 when they had the ball at the Michigan 1 with time left in which case I am burning the prize. Deadline for entries is 24 hours before the start of the game (since I won't have time to pull them on gamedays). Those caught changing their scores after the game has started will be disqualified for life. MGoEmployees and Moderators--anyone else with moderator privileges--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. We did not invent the algorithm. The algorithm consistently finds Jesus. The algorithm killed Jeeves. The algorithm is just a regional rivalry. The algorithm is banned in China. The algorithm is from Jersey. The algorithm constantly finds Jesus. This is not the algorithm. This is close.

I'm making the same prediction:  28-24 Michigan.

I don't care if I win.  Frankly I don't want to.  I avoid disappointment by keeping my expectations low.  I don't want my expectations to get any lower than the Akron game, though, so as long as reality has given me a floor I'll going to go with that.  And if Michigan annihilates my prediction, I'll be the happiest guy in the liveblog.
