Guess the Score, Win Stuff: Sweet Sixteen Comment Count

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 game or let it go.

This Week’s Game:

Michigan vs. Oregon in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

And on the line:

Take your pick:


Went through a lot of ideas before settling on the only one it could be. Of course we have some other hoops tees too.


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 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 asked Jeeves! The algorithm is was Mr. Basketball in Germany. The algorithm never imagined this was possible.
