2017-18 Prediction Contest Summary

Unread postby Obadiah » 1 week ago

This year's contest drew 87 participants, slightly behind the record participation of two seasons ago. Seawrightspostgame is clearly the most optimistic poster with his 26-3 prediction. The most pessimistic predictions of 18-11 were made by three posters which if realized means no NCAA post season for the Rams.

For readability, I have clustered the predictions, first by overall record, then by A-10 record, and then by teams scoring sequenced from highest to lowest. Please review summary and let me know if there are errors. I get a bit crossed eyed putting this together.

Good luck to all and thanks for the terrific response and good wishes.

NOTE: Ties do not affect the overall contest, but the two bonus contests are so impacted. A few people have submitted duplicates and have not responded to private messages to make corrections. I have noted the duplicates in this summary. If they want to qualify they must send corrections to me via private message, since the opening thread is now locked.

We have to allow re-submissions like the year EC blew out his knee.

I don't think so, injuries are part of the game, you can't restart the contest every time someone gets hurt. The first time around with EC was a little different, being so early in the first game of the year and his season being over. In my opinion that was a one time thing. If you open it up to changing every time something happens then where does it end?

......I would say no.....back then we knew he would be out for the entires season after like 10 minutes into season......how to we judge when he will be back, is 4 weeks the same as 6 weeks.....at two games per week?......to quote a Jennifer Nettles “shit happens”.....after all it is gambling......

Indeed it is gambling, and I would have won had we taken the "sh*t happens" approach two years ago, instead of allowing re-submissions.

So, what if Jared gets hurt in game #7. We do it again? No. Keep it like it is.
