Guess the Score, Win Stuff: The Jug Comment Count

Hey that's our 30-cent jug.


No it's not.

I swear we bought one just like it last year for your game.

What were you afraid we'd poison the water or something?

No, we needed a place to put water since Gatorade jugs won't be invented for, oh, at least another half a century. Are you sure that's not the one we bought?


But you wrote "Michigan Jug 'Captured' by Oscar" on it. You even added a date and the score of the game. Are you sure…?

Okay well you left it. It's our jug now.

That's fine.

You'll have to win it back or I'm keeping it forever!


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 "41-0" or "35-0 Michigan", or "28-0 Go Blue", or "42-0 Harbaugh!" 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 or I don't hear from the winner(s) we push it to next week or let it go.

About Last Time:

No football happened so nobody won. Oh the game before that? No football happened so…

This Week's Game:

Michigan at Minnesota, with pottery on the line.

And on the Line:



Our friends at Rivalry Trophy are giving away a full-sized(!) replica of the Little Brown Jug to whoever can get this score right. They also sell this for $200, and a smaller version for $100, and a Christmas ornament sized one for $18 that I think is the most adorable thing on the planet that isn't half my genes.

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. The algorithm finds the winners as it chooses. The algorithm is self-correcting. The algorithm consistently runs power. The algorithm locked Rutgers out of Jersey. The algorithm can't make every football coach Jerry Kill but thinks it really shouldn't be too much to ask to have one.
