Guess the Score, Win Stuff: Gophers Comment Count

Seth September 24th, 2014 at 6:00 PM


How this works again:

  1. Readers predict the final score of a designated game by placing a guess in the comments, preferably in the format of [M score][hyphen][Opp score], for example "41-30" or "35-31 Michigan", or "28-24 Go Blue", or "38-34 Gardner FTW!" or "38-0" etc.
  2. The three guys who read this part holler at people who post in a different format
  3. First person (by timestamp) to post a particular score has it.
  4. If you got it right, I contact you for an address by your MGoBlog account email, and you give me some time to get that to you.
  5. If nobody got it right we push it to next week or let it go.
  6. Brian voices displeasure at the puns in the headlines.

Why we do it:

Hey look: we sell t-shirts. Also sometimes there's free stuff to give away.

About Last Week:

Nobody won. Even Utah fans went home wet long after they were supposed to be drinking with the knowledge they were outgained by a team intent on shooting themselves in the face.

This Week's Game:


And on the Line:


Reference is to when much ado was being made over Gardner not learning to ID blocking assignments (Borges had the RBs and OL doing it). Six Zero went ahead and made a shirt out of it. It is good advice for anyone facing blitzes in their faces, be the pressure real, imagined, or metaphorical.

Fine print: 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). Deadline for entries is 24 hours before the start of the game. MGoEmployees and Moderators exempt from winning. Nine people read this last time and thus was MGoBlog broken forever. The algorithm must've been something before electricity. The algorithm is a Cindarella story out of nowhere. And I say "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." The algorithm killed Gardner.This is not the algorithm. It tells people it is anyway.

See I've got it the other way around, I'm picking Michigan to get the safety, but it'll be an all defense game. Minnesota 17-12. 2 Minnesota pick 6s and a gimmie field goal after a recovered fumble near the 50, beating our lone pick 6, safety, and typical consolation first drive field goal.

Iowa lost to BG, but beat Missouri. 

The Cleveland Browns are watchable. 

"Naked Dating" is a show on televison. 


Things don't need to make sense, so take your totally legitimate quips out of here, fine sir.

Michigan 6-1. Mich scores on their first drive, but Minnesota gets a safety when the long snapper snaps the ball 108 yrds over the holder's head through the end zone while attempting the PAT.
