Guess the Score, Win Stuff: Upleftern Comment Count

Oh, hello you. You may not realize this, since your school isn't quite as, how do I say this without sounding rude, enlightened as the one in Evanston, but it seems you Michigan fans have been bequest yet another charitable opportunity to acquire the afore mentioned droll affectations for the simplistic publishing of an educated guess. So as not to parse words: a contest, in which you may win clothing that acclaims your allegiance to a particular company of sporting men, by accurately adumbrating the final numerical representation of the upcoming, barbaric contest of basketball prowess between your vulgar Wolverines and the Wildcats of the fair, genteel, and eminently more sophisticated Northwestern University.

For the boorish:

  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. 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.

About Last Time:


The Battle for Washtenaw County ended with the Eagles surrendering in five minutes and everyone getting drinks together at the Corner Brewery. In this the Michigan team out-drank Eastern 93 shots of Tequila to EMU's sad 54. I'm giving it to joeismyname for guessing 91-55, though I was momentarily tempted to give it to the guy who said 92-17. Also I've found it's hard to write an email to a stranger that says "congratulations you've won" without getting into spam folders so if you haven't heard from us after you win something, check the spam box of the account you use for the blog.

This Week's Game:

The Vainglorious Wildcats of Pretensiousestern, versus the High and Mighty Michigan Wolverines

And the Prize:


An exclamation that requires little explanation.

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. We did not invent the algorithm. The algorithm consistently finds Jesus. The algorithm killed Jeeves. The algorithm is banned in China. The algorithm is from Jersey. Rutgers is from Jersey. Holy shit guys Rutgers is in the Big Ten. BIG TENNNNN! The algorithm constantly finds Jesus.aachen. This is not the algorithm. This is close.
