Predict the score for Saturday's game against North Dakota State's Bison. Tip-off is at 1:00 and predictions must be submitted by 11AM Saturdqy.

If you pick the exact score (hasn't happened yet either last season or this), you win. Otherwise, whoever picks the winning team and is closest to the exact score wins. (See Small Print for how that's calculated.)

Please note that your prediction must be in this format:


moniker Gophers (or Minnesota) xx Bison (or NDSU) xx

example: MNSnowman Gophers 70 Bison 55

Even if you think the Gophers will lose, please put the Gopher score before the opposing team score ... I try to automate the data entry process as much as possible and thus need your prediction in the right order for the macros to work. And please put your moniker (or screen name) in the post and at the start of the prediction.

If everyone uses their moniker, this format and consistent names for the teams, its easy and fast to transfer the data to a spreadsheet used to track predictions. You should check the summary for your prediction to make sure it has been included and check this thread for any notes to those who have predictions that cannot be counted.

And even if you don't win, you'll garner valuable points in the Predict the Score Contest (see "Small Print" below).

You should check the summary for your prediction to make sure it has been included and check this thread for any notes to those who have predictions that cannot be counted.

Predict the Score rules:

- whoever picks the exact score and winning team wins. If more than one person picks the exact score and team, the person who first chose that score wins.

- if nobody picks the exact score, the person who predicted the winning team and whose prediction is closest to the actual score wins. The closest pick will be calculated by subtracting the predicted scores from each team's actual score. The absolute value of those differences shall determine the total variance.

- If two or more have the same variation between their projected scores and the actual scores, the closest to the exact winning team's score wins.

- If there is still a tie, the person who first entered the contest wins.

good to see you back in the contest, Hofferette. Last year, Hofferette posted some envious stats with a couple of back-to-back wins, etc.
